Real Haunted Houses

Real Haunted House

National Hotel

Jamestown, California

It is reported that this hotel is frequented by apparitions of the female persuasion. One woman reports that while having dinner at the restaurant, she was constantly kicked in the leg, though no one was at the table with her. She also reported there being a loud crash just a few minutes later in the kitchen. After the crash, she felt a breeze rush past her as the doors behind her swung open and closed again. It is reported that employees will confirm many of the strange occurrences.

OMG that is aweful i recently stayed at a hotel and it was so scary cause i think it may have been abandond what i mean by that is that no one had stayed there in years and it was so old but the wholetime i was there i felt as i was being watched it was so scary so i know what this gurl probably felt like.

i kno wat happened there

Ok that hotel used to be a home of a refugee and his wife would let soldiers come there to there home and heal them so many of the soldiers died from the pain and the wounds so it is said that they used an old dining table for a surgery table and that in the kitchen is where they did the operations and at night there is always a crashing sound but when they came down to the kitchen no one was there and the soldiers were really mean so that is probably why she got kicked i am not lieing

I worked in and spent a lot of time in this establishment from 1982-1992. I have been touched, kicked, pushed, leaned on, you name it. I have been in that bar/restaurant/hotel very very late at night when it was just me and one other employee present. A lot of weird noises, cold spots, etc…..never anything that would make me run in fear though.
So cool to have found this page.

when i was 10 i lived in sonora not 5 min from jamestown my brother and i were dare devils and people bet us 50 dollars we would not stay the night. my dad knew the owners and he got them to let us stay. there was no one but us in the place and there was sounds of shattering glass and gun shots. it was a little freaky. the topper was we put some shot glasses on a table and they got threw against the wall. so we put the glases down and put flour all over the glasses and the table and floor we left the room and heard the glasses shatter when we went back all we found were the shattered glasses and the flour the way we left it. but we stayed the whole night and made 50 dollars and got tons of pictures. a couple have this figure of just a head. jamestown is a great place for paranormal activity because of the towns history i would def. go visit this town if you are into that stuff.

when i was 10 years old i lived in sonora which is 5 min or so away from jamestown. my brother and i are dare devils and we made a bet for 50 dollars to stay the whole night on holloween. well my dad knew the owner and we got the place to ourselfs. we kept hearing shattering glass and gun shots we could not figure out where it was coming from. then we remembered a story our dad told us miners use to leave shot glasses on the counter and when they left the glasses would be shot. so my brother and i tried to test the theory and put the shot glasses on the counter we left and as soon as we rounded the corner the glasses shattered. when we came back the glasses had been thrown against the wall. so we thought some one was pulling our legs so we got two more glasses and put them on the table and poured flour around the table glasses and floor. as soon as we left the room we heard the shattering came back and found the glasses thrown against the wall and the flour was the way we left it. later we were trying to sleep and we heard crashing around the kitchen like there was a hurricane in the kitchen. then we went to the kitchen we opened the door and my brother and i were pushed from the door. we were pretty scared so we decided to quit playing tricks with the ghosts and went upstairs and tried to sleep we could’nt so we waited till morning and our dad came to pick us up. we mad the 50 dollars though we took some pictures in the resturaunt and kitchen there was a head in two of the pics and orbs in a few more. if you like this kind of stuff jamestown is a great place to visit. the history is soooo cool.

Well i lived right next to the place my entire life and i will say that some crazy stuff has happened. go and get away frome one spirit and find another. But the absolute creepyiest place is rail town in james town its a 5 minute walk from the national and more stuff happens there then anywhere in that town (if you know where to look)

Duck. You know, this has hapened to me before. I was washing my hads in the bathroom when the dore opened and the water sudenly turned cold. This mite seem like an obvius situation. Most people said I used up all the hot water and wind blew the dore open. But when I asked my brother, who was taking a shower at the time, if the water had turned cold in the shower, he said no. And when I was in the bathroom washing my hands, The dore was LOCKED!

I stayed there and captured this photo of one of the spirits that still resides there. This was a young man who was a waiter I believe. I think he passed from consumption.

click on my name in the above post to see the photo I was talking about. This hotel is one of the oldest still functioning hotels in Calif. Nothing to be afraid of.
Rail town is also where they filmed Back to the Future 3.
