I happened upon your boards while I was surfing the internet. I'm visiting (again) an old hotel with lots of
supernatural activity, and I was printing some visitors' accounts of what they experienced there. I enjoyed what I read on your boards and will look forward to returning.

Welcome to GV.   :) We'd love to hear about your exploration of the hotel, so feel free to post away about it on the haunted locations, encounters, or spiritography boards.

:-/Crap! I just typed a whole lot of stuff to you but an error occurred and when I clicked 'back', my text was gone.
I'll just give you the two links I had included with my message. What a neat little town Jefferson, Tx is!

Jefferson is in far east Texas. It's about 20 miles north off of I 20. One of those links I posted has some pretty cool info about the town.

;DHey, Dragon, thanks for your interest. Here's a link I found that just tells the history of Jefferson.
http://www.jefferson...com/history.htm

As for the paranormal activity, I can only guess that
since the town has remained unchanged for so long (these neat old buildings look just like they were in the 1860s) and because lots of the structures have tragic stories to go along with them simply because of the times they were constructed, spirits linger. There were unjust hangings because of people taking the law into their own hands, duels, drownings (as the river runs through)... Each of the places we learned about on the tour had tragedy in its past. Most everywhere else, it seems, cities have grown and rebuilt but this little town has stayed the same. It's the only explination I can think of.

It wasn't a scary town, though. Even the hotel where we stayed was very 'welcoming', even though some strange things went on. There was only one place about the whole town that gave me a negative feeling and this was called The Grove. I put a link up in a previous post. It was a house then was converted to a restaurant in the early 1990s. It closed down because the strange occurrances became dangerous to customers. A couple from Dallas bought the place a couple of years ago and they live there. He is a writer (about ghosts, I think). On his website, he mentions some strange happenings, but not with much detail. I have read other people's accounts of what happened when they tried to spend the night there (before the writer moved in)...some paranormal investigators and such...and it just sounds like a bad place. Even just stopping to look at the property gave me the heebie jeebies...like the entities were evil. Here's that link again and maybe I can find the one about the people who stayed overnight.
