Sorry, but we couldn't find the haunt you're looking for. Here are a few things you can try:
This house has many active spirits. Sometimes, the sound of a heartbeat crescendoes to deafening volumes before subsiding. Clicking, tapping, and footsteps are also heard from time to time. Most prominent, however, is the sound of a woman crying.
There are many legends surrounding this hotel. In one, a young girl fell down the stairs to hear death. It is said that occasionally, childrenï¿½s laughter may be heard coming from the bottom of the stairs. In another story, a woman became depressed when her fiancee called off the wedding and thus hanged herself. The woman has allegedly been spotted wearing a wedding dress in several areas of the hotel. In the final story, it is said that a man spent many years of his life living in the hotel. He can now be seen smoking cigars throughout the building.
Located in Skagway, Alaska, this hotel was originally built in 1898.Â In 1908, the hotel was moved to where it is currently located in Skagway.Â 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.”Â Back during the gold rush days Mary was staying at the hotel with her fiance.Â One such day when her fiance went out to prospect for gold, Mary became very ill and developed pneumonia.Â While waiting for him to return from his gold prospecting expedition, her pneumonia progressed and eventually took her life.Â She was staying in room 23.Â 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.
Two old ladies once resided in this house, but when they died, no one noticed, and all their possessions remained. Today, a blue light can be seen in a window at night, and brave persons who have ventured inside have reported seeing the two women rocking in their chairs.
At the base of scenic Mount Washington sits a glorious testament to wealth and love. The Mount Washington Hotel was built in 1902 (after 2 years of construction), a show of the wealth owner Joseph Stickney had amassed through his investments in coal mining and the Pennsylvania Railroad.
Stickney spared no expense on the massive structure, using what was then state-of-the-art construction methods and heating, plumbing and private phones. A staff of 350 people waited on the guestsâ??sometimes outnumbering them. It was truly a wealthy manâ??s paradise. And Joseph Stickneyâ??s wife, Carolyn, loved the hotel nearly as much as she loved her husband.
The hotel served many well-to-do guests, including the Vanderbilt family. And regardless of who attended dinner each night in the hotelâ??s grand dining room, Carolyn Stickney was always the finest dressed attendee. It is rumored that Mrs. Stickney would hide on the balcony and look at the hotelâ??s guests as they filed inâ??carefully contemplating what dress and jewels to wear in order to outshine them all. After playing the nightly â??belle of the ball,â? Carolyn and Joseph would dine privately by candlelight, snatching at romantic moments.
Then, tragically in December 1903, Josephâ??s heart suddenly gave out and he died, leaving his grieving widow to roam a gigantic monument to their love. Carolyn stayed on at the hotel, wandering the well-manicured grounds where she and Joseph shared so much happiness. Carolyn eventually remarried Prince Lucinge of France and moved to France until the prince also passed away. When he died, she again returned to Mount Washington to spend many happy times there. She died many years later, owning the hotel until her death, but rumor is that she still wanders through the elegant hotel and its rambling grounds.
Visitors have reported hearing a ghostly romantic melody playing through the hotel, and some say theyâ??ve glimpsed a woman fitting Carolynâ??s description peeking down from the balcony. Perhaps she still watches the visitors to the hotel, wondering about what it might take to stun them now…
Orbs show up in photos and television channels change themselves in the â??Tower Suitesâ? that Carolyn supposedly frequents. Perfume drifts into rooms and tubs start filling themselves, according to some guests. Mysterious lights are sometimes seen and although the hotel staff has been taught not to tell ghostly tales, some hint at odd occurrences.
In room 314 there supposedly still exists a hand turned and handcrafted four-poster bed that Carolyn shared with her first husband. Some have reported seeing a woman on the bedâ??s edge, slowly brushing her hair. Could it be that Carolyn Stickney still longs for some form of rest, even in spirit form?
The depot was once a house owned by Mr. Beck. One fall evening as he was raking his yard, he fell into a hole and subsequently died. It is said that he now haunts the depot. Mr. Beck, however, is a friendly ghost. He is reported to do things such as change radio stations from rock to classical. He has also been known to go through the drivers’ laundry, placing their socks on the door knobs.
