Earlier this month, I had a chance to stay a night at the world famous Crescent Hotel in Eureka Springs, Arkansas. This historic hotel is 125 years old and built at the top of a hill. It's a beautifully kept place with manicured lawns and great vistas. It's also home to some "otherwordly" beings. That's if you believe in ghosts.
If you ever visit, you must attend a ghost tour. This is where you get all the great stories that aren't posted on the website as well as seeing the album of photos taken by guests. I attended with ladies from my local writer's group, and my writer friend did indeed take photos sporting some busy orbs. The tour guide had a terrific collection of photos with ghosts.
My photos are nice, but I don't have orbs or any ghosts sneaking into the frames.
The tour began on the fourth floor, and we watched the antics of a sticky elevator before proceeding to the meeting room. There we watched the video that I am sharing with you (below) in this post. Next we followed the tour guide as she delivered numerous stories of former guests and their experiences. We learned about the crazy Dr. Norman Baker who operated a cancer hospital in the hotel in the Great Depression days and made millions. Although he was not an actual medical doctor, people flocked to him for the cure. To read more about this, click to visit America's Most Haunted Hotel. I listened to the stories and started wondering if I'd be able to sleep that night. Whether you believe in ghosts or not, the stories are very creepy. Some of the rooms are supposedly haunted, and there are regular ghosts who are known by name. Before the tour proceeded to the bowels (I meant to say basement), I dropped out of the tour. I couldn't force myself to continue on to what had served as the former morgue. Here is part of the video clip I watched with the rest of the group at the beginning of the tour. Yes, you may call me a wimp. Go ahead. Would you be able to visit the morgue?
