What is the most haunted place in Arkansas?
It’s widely believed that the honor for most haunted place in Arkansas goes to the Crescent Hotel in Eureka Springs, Arkansas. Built in 1886, this historic hotel is believed to be haunted by several spirits. Paranormal investigators and psychic mediums have done investigations at the hotel and believe that the hotel is a portal to the other side, which is why so many paranormal encounters occur. In 1937, Norman G. Baker purchased the building and used it as a hospital, despite not having any proper medical schooling and as a result, many people died. Both guests and employees have reported seeing the spirits of Baker’s patients, hearing disembodied screams, and there have even been a few sightings of Morris, a lovable cat that used to live at the hotel and is buried on the property.
