America’s Most Haunted Hotel
The 1886 Crescent Hotel has gained a reputation as America’s Most Haunted Hotel. Having undergone several documented paranormal investigations including the televised investigation by TAPS, Crescent Hotel history lends itself to fascinating ghost stories. Most recently, Crescent stories were shared on Biography Channel’s My Ghost Story. This most recent story is thought to parallel that of the famous dancer Irene Castle.
