Guides lead parties of 10 or fewer on expeditions through the hotel, featured on the Travel Channel's Most Terrifying Places in America. Past visitors have reported unexplainable shadows, unsettling noises, and cold spots as they move throughout the 33 rooms—and some guests have even reported being touched by ethereal hands. While no one can predict the level of activity from day to day, the hotel's caretaker attests that those guests who enter in good spirits tend to have the best experience, and K2 energy meters will help suss out the supernatural. Participants should bring flashlights and water, and are encouraged to take photographs and video at will. Tours can typically be scheduled at 6 p.m., 8 p.m., or 10 p.m.
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.
