In Eureka Springs AR there is a beautiful, old, historic hotel that is haunted. The Crescent Hotel. I'm not sure but if I remember correctly a long time ago before it was a hotel, it was a cancer treatment center. The doctor there promised sick people he could cure them of cancer, but he didn't. Instead he experimented on them. I saw this on Ghost Hunters and heard talk about it on Coast to Coast radio. One of these days I'll make it to the Eureka Springs area and check it out.

I've been in the Crescent and I tell you one thing...I felt it! Creepy, creeepy!!! When I walked into the lobby, I was drawn towards the huge fireplace..I felt that it was significant for some reason....I went over to it...and noticed on the mantel, a carving relief of a demonic 'bat owl' in the mantel...Here's some links I found that some people took of the fireplace.

Default Speaking of Eureka Springs ghosts......

Have any of you taken either the Cresent Hotel ghost tour or the Eureka Springs Ghost tour? I'm thinking of taking one of these over spring break.Was wondering if they were worth it.

Can't take a full vacation from work until the fall, so I thought I might do some fun local things spring break week.

The former physics department chair at HSU has seen the Gurdon light many times and given presentations about it.

Linky:

The Gurdon Light in Arkansas - Associated Content

Nashville Leader Online (http://www.nashvilleleader.com/articles/2006/09/27/news/02news.txt - broken link)

I went with a few of my friends once and didn't see anything, but supposedly the conditions weren't right. The graveyard is kind of odd, but not terribly creepy...only a few plots just thrown in some woods and but forgotten about. The scariest part was trying to negotiate the dilapidated railroad bridges in the dark.

Hey...
I lived in Maumelle for 2 months or so back in 1990. The house I was living in was situated on top of a high point above town. There was some seriously wierd stuff going on there...a cold spot in the downstairs living area, the sound of dogs nails clicking as they ran of a couple of flights of wooden stairs, vacuum cleaners running in the middle of the night, etc.

I have been on the Crescent Hotel tour, and it is worth it. However, I suggest you choose a time or day when the tour will be less crowded, as you get to see more and hear more stories with a smaller group. It's especially interesting when they point out a room with a "past" and someone in the group realizes that's where THEY are staying! We were staying at the hotel and I had a difficult time falling asleep-I'm not usually creeped out, but that place has so much history. My husband swears he heard something growl at him when we were in the basement/former morgue. Then the guide told him a pair of St. Bernards used to live on the grounds and hung out there because the concrete floor stayed cool. Just touring the guts of the hotel is pretty neat.

The 'ghost tour' of the Crescent Hotel is just fascinating! I can't believe no one has made a movie about the evil Dr. Baker (quack) that 'treated' patients there and incinerated them. If they don't haunt that place, they should! The records of his trial were sealed 50 years....and the 50 years will be up next year. Do hope there will be some books come out then with more informaton about it.
