The paranormal activity at this popular hotel in Rapid City seems to originate from one specific place in the hotel – the eighth floor – and as the result one heartbreaking event. During the late 1920s, a young bride committed suicide on the night of her wedding by jumping from the balcony of her eighth floor hotel room. Her tragic ghost is said to haunt the hotel and both visitors and staff members have reported hearing a woman’s crying on the eighth floor when no one else is around, believed to be that of the young woman. Some people have even claimed to see a full-body apparition of her but she disappears as quickly as she appeared.
