The tour guides at Morse Mill don't doubt this age-old hotel's spirit population. In fact, they readily encourage the use of cameras in hopes of expanding their already sizable collection of spooky photos and video footage. Rasping hinges and mysterious bumps underscore the guided two-hour tour, where guests explore each otherworldly room and, if curious, visit the grave of Bertha Gifford, an ex-employee and noted serial killer. Spines go from tingling to shivering during the 6- to 8-hour VIP experience, which includes an optional sleepover and several rounds of Spin the Severed Limb.
Morse Mill Hotel
Originally built as a one-room house in 1816, the Morse Mill Hotel grew to 5,300 square feet under the watchful eye of engineer John Morse, a former Confederate officer and suspected warlock. In its present state, the hotel may house ghostly figures who once took up residence in one of its 33 rooms. Jesse James and company signed their marks in the guest register, and a famous female serial killer, Bertha Gifford, was kept in the hotel's employ; a nearby gravesite marks her resting place. A burial ground for Confederate soldiers, relics of Al Capone's old brothel, and a dungeon also add to the sinister air. An expert paranormal guide leads amateur ghost gumshoes through the 33-room, four-story Morse manse, providing advice on where to find the friendliest long-term residents. If they dare, guests are encouraged to snap photos to document their occult encounters with phantoms, specters, or eerily expensive minibars.
