ABOUT "Golden North Haunted Hotel"
There are at least two hauntings of the Golden North Hotel. The first and most popular haunting that is said to reside in the hotel is that of a spirit which many refer to as “Mary”. In the early days of the hotel, prospecting for gold was a popular activity. It is believed that Mary’s fiancé was in the area engaging in this activity. He seemed to have quite a bit of luck, so he sent for Mary. She arrived at the area and he reserved a room for her at this grand hotel. They spent some time together, and he went back to prospecting, promising to return soon. Unfortunately, while he was away, she developed pneumonia. As her sickness progressed, she laid patiently in room 23 waiting for the return of her true love. Eventually, the sickness overtook her and she passed away. Today, guests claim to see a spirit of Mary in this room. Several individuals who have stayed overnight in the room often awake feeling as if they are choking. The next rumored haunting occurs in room 14. Individuals who stay in this room, and even the housekeeping staff and other employees claim that there is a strange light that occurs in the room. This light is most evident late in the night, and early in the morning, just before dawn. To some, it appears like a sparkle, or a small light that twinkles on and off. To others, it appears as an orb of light. The light does not appear to be threatening to anyone who sees it, but it is actually quite startling to those who are able to view it.
