This 278-Year-Old Hotel Is One Of The Most Haunted Places In Pennsylvania… And You Can Spend The Night
Do you feel chills of terror go down your spine when you imagine experiencing the paranormal? Does the thought of seeing a ghost cause excited anticipation? Regardless of how you feel about the paranormal, you’re going to
want to meet the ghosts that reside at this haunted hotel in Pennsylvania.
Forget all of those scary stories where ghosts are the bad guys. When you check into the Historic Hotel Bethlehem, a delightfully haunted hotel, you just might be lucky enough to...
Meet one of the friendly ghosts who have lived at the hotel for decades. Plus, see if you can uncover the identity of the mysterious ghost who resides in Room 932.
Historic Hotel Bethlehem boasts a rich history - President John F. Kennedy's shaking hands with supporters outside of the hotel in the photo below - that dates back to 1921. The building itself, however, was built in 1741.
Even though its name has periodically changed, the building housing Historic Hotel Bethlehem has served as a hotel during its whole lifespan.
Relax in the lobby or start working out in the exercise room, where you just might run into Mary Yohe, one of the friendly ghosts. Mary spent much of her childhood at the hotel, which her grandfather ran, singing and dancing.
Mary, born in 1866, married then divorced a British Lord before meeting and marrying an American soldier. The marriage also ended in divorce.
Today, guests tell of hearing her sing, and it's common for the piano to simply turn on when there's no one around.
Happen to walk near the Boiler Room? Keep an eye out for Francis Thomas, the former town guide born in 1732. The jovial man, originally from Germany, has been known to show off his sense of humor to today's guests.
Up for a little suspense with your paranormal experience? Call ahead and reserve Room 932, also known as the "Room with a Boo." No one knows what ghost resides in that room, but plenty of visitors have experienced...
Strange occurrences. One guest was asked "why are you in my room?" Others tell of paper spontaneously flying off of a table and bathroom walls that suddenly turn pink.
The hotel, in fact, welcomed a paranormal investigator to see what he could find in Room 932. During his one-night stay, he recorded a series of voices in the room.
Today, the ghost in Room 932 still remains unidentified. Do you think you could uncover his or her identity?
