The History Behind This Remote Hotel In Iowa Is Both Eerie And Fascinating

The tiny town of Manilla, Iowa is located over an hour from Council Bluffs, and nearly two hours from Des Moines. For years, it was a railroad depot for the Milwaukee Railroad, and the tiny town always had visitors stopping overnight. Some of those visitors did not make it through the night, though, because their accommodations at the Klondike Hotel were eerie, and paranormal activity as all too common. Read below to learn the history of this beautiful, haunted hotel in Iowa, and see how you can get involved with a ghost hunt yourself.
