This 163-Year-Old Hotel Is One Of The Most Haunted Places In Northern California… And You Can Spend The Night
Northern California has its fair share of historic hotels, so it only makes sense that some of them are believed to be haunted. If you’ve ever wondered what it’s like to sleep with ghosts, there’s one destination you definitely need to check out. Murphys Historic Hotel is considered one of the oldest operating hotels in the state, so naturally, it’s been associated with a ghost story or two. Whether you’re a skeptic or a hardcore believer, a stay at this haunted hotel is not for the faint of heart.
Murphys Historic Hotel in the town of Murphys is definitely one of the most historic places to sleep in the state. In continuous operation since 1856, a lot of figures have come and gone in this quaint hotel. In fact, some have refused to leave.
The hotel has become an icon in the old Gold Rush town of Murphys. It's hosted famous historical figures such as Mark Twain, Susan B. Anthony, and Ulysses S. Grant. The fact that it's still in operation to this very day is quite simply amazing.
Of course, a hotel with such a rich history is susceptible to its fair share of ghost stories and Murphys Historic Hotel has plenty. The most famous legend tells the story of a ghost named Eleanor.
It's believed that Eleanor was a former maid during the hotel's early years. She's known to make most of her appearances in the kitchen or the Mark Twain Ballroom. She's especially famous for throwing random small objects through the air.
However, Eleanor is far from the only ghost to call this hotel home. Guests have witnessed all sorts of bizarre paranormal activity, including children's laughter and the apparition of what seems to be a gentleman ghost named John.
If you find yourself in need of any more convincing, just take a look at the paranormal journal situated on the nightstand of every room. This journal is a log of all former guests' ghostly encounters. Be sure to add your own if you have one!
Everybody loves a good ghost story, so a stay at Murphys Historic Hotel is definitely a memorable experience whether you consider yourself a believer or not. See for yourself what it's like to spend the night in one of NorCal's most haunted spots and plan a visit soon!
