Strange Hotels Pennsylvania

sign outside U.S. HotelThe U.S. Hotel located in historic Hollidaysburg is known through Central Pennsylvania as the mysteriously haunted hotel. Built back in 1835 this historic location has it's own history, along with legends and ghost sightings.

The original hotel was built in historic Hollidaysburg, PA, by John Dougherty, in 1835.

Although the U.S. Hotel has had many owners since it was built, many of the original unique fixtures are still in place.

You will literally step back in time when you enter the historic U.S. Hotel. For instance, when was the last time you have seen a spittoon running along the base of a bar? I doubt if anybody uses it to spit in anymore but it does add a unique backdrop to days-gone-by.

The Ghost Research Foundation, a group of Paranormal Investigators from Bedford County, has been to the U.S. Hotel many times to investigate the many testimonies of customers, tenants, and the owners of this haunted hotel.

After spending the night on several occasions they have witnessed strange and spooky paranormal incidents. One incident actually sent one of the investigators screaming and running from the upstairs bedroom and refused to return.

With four eye witnesses, three paranormal investigators and one of the U.S. Hotel owners, there was no doubt a apparition was laying across the hotel bed.

Investigator and writer of paranormal stories, Patty Wilson & Scott Crownover, described the apparition as being a young woman with tangled chestnut colored hair. She was withering in pain and holding her head. She vanished within moments of the investigators finding her.

That same night another paranormal investigator suddenly screamed to everybody, "Run, everybody out of here now!" He later explained seeing a shadow of a man step into the light, the man was carrying an ax!

This was just one night of many testimonies about the Central Pennsylvania haunted hotel, read on, it's all interesting, very mysterious and a bit creepy.
