Wheat Growers Hotel

You are here Home  > Hotels and Inns >  Wheat Growers Hotel

This 1918 hotel has a sole ghost. The apparition of a woman has been spotted on several occasions standing behind an upper floor window, gazing down into the street. Her association with the building is not known, but local folk claim she was associated with a speakeasy housed in the basement during the Prohibition era.

  1. Im on the other side of the tracks waiting on a crew i thought i saw something .so i got out of my van and take a closer look,she stood 4th top window from the front…….thats what made me look this up…..pretty cool

  2. I have some information about the Hotel.
    First off, this hotel once held marvelous parties. Under the hotel though, something else was happening during the parties out of everyone’s sight people would be smuggling in illegal alcohol through the tunnel under the hotel. A girl, that I don’t know the name of, was going through the tunnel bringing back alcohol, out of nowhere the tunnel had collapsed, most likely due to poor support of the tunnel. No one knee it had collapsed, so she was left there to starve and become dehydrated. After someone found out they closed the hotel, it also wasn’t being used as much I think.
    That’s all the information I have. I hope it helped.

  3. I’ve lived in this town most my life. My mom’s cousin once ran the Wheat Growers back in the 1970’s when I took ballet classes in the basement. Ya’ll are wildy off if you think there is only one ghost in that place. I’m a psychic and medium and I can tell you all for a fact that the Wheat Growers is a freaking PORTAL and lost souls travel through there at regular intervals. Okay, so the lady may live upstairs, but the mail floor and basement is somewhere I’d NEVER step foot.
