Von Minden Hotel

You are here Home  > Historical Buildings >  Von Minden Hotel

Built in 1927, the Von Minden Hotel is rumored to be haunted by at least two ghosts, perhaps stemming from two known deaths here. Long ago in Room 23, a railroad worker died of an illness in his sleep, and in Room 37 a WWII veteran jumped after finding that his girl had married someone else while he was at war. Also, a ghost called Ms. X is said to appear, wearing a polka-dot dress and asking for directions.
