Did you know that one of the Cowboy State’s most historic hotels is actually one of the most haunted places in Wyoming? Read more about the storied Sheridan Inn below.
Way back when the Sheridan Inn was built, the area around the Bighorn Mountains was vast and open, with little to do in any direction but get out and explore. The Inn was built in 1893 at the direction of the Chicago, Burlington, and Quincy Railroad and then-manager Buffalo Bill Cody.
Soon, the town of Sheridan became a happening spot for visitors and travelers looking to experience luxury in the otherwise Wild West.
The Inn hosted guests from all around the world!
It was a community center as much as it was an Inn, until age and disinterest in railroad travel took its toll and it was condemned in 1967.
Today, thanks to a major restoration effort, the historic Sheridan Inn is once again one of the best places to stay in the West - but it's also rumored to be haunted.
Guests who cozy up in the comfortable rooms have reported apparitions, strange noises, and unexplained paranormal experiences. The spirit is said to be that of Miss Kate Arnold, the protector and guardian of the Inn and its guests.
So far, though, the bathtubs haven't started shaking and guests report the spirits to be friendly, so you can still enjoy their luxury spa-like bathrooms in peace.
There are plenty of common spaces, too, where you can enjoy the property and meet guests from all over the world and through various dimensions. This photo shows the Third Floor area, which offers great views of town.
Come spend some time with the spirits of the West at the Sheridan Inn!
