Real Haunted House

Red Onion Saloon

Skagway, Alaska
By Lisa

Originally built in 1897, and used as a bordello, the Red Onion Saloon moved to its current location in Skagway in 1914.  Today, the Red Onion Saloon is a restaurant, bar and museum.  Some tales include shadowy spirits  watering plants, footsteps heard on the second floor and the scent of strong perfume.  One tale suggests that it is a prior owner of the bordello who appears to be watering the plants on the second floor wearing perfume.

Other strange occurrences noted are several cold spots from floor to floor and flickering lights in the rooms that were used as “cribs” for male customers during its day.  Some males have even reported feeling unwanted when inside the place.
