Real Haunted House

Golden North Hotel

Skagway, Alaska
By Lisa

Located in Skagway, Alaska, this hotel was originally built in 1898.  In 1908, the hotel was moved to where it is currently located in Skagway.  During this move, a golden dome was constructed, and in 1997 the hotel was renovated…and the ghost stories surrounding this hotel have remained.

One such haunted tale is that of “Mary.”  Back during the gold rush days Mary was staying at the hotel with her fiance.  One such day when her fiance went out to prospect for gold, Mary became very ill and developed pneumonia.  While waiting for him to return from his gold prospecting expedition, her pneumonia progressed and eventually took her life.  She was staying in room 23.  People have reported seeing ghostly images of a female in this room and some have even experienced choking sensations during the evening hours.

Another tale is that of room 14, where staff and guests have reported seeing a light appear late at night or at dusk…when no one else is in the room.
