The Crescent Motel...

America's Most Haunted Hotel has been visited by the famous Ghost Hunters of television fame Jason and Grant.

Let's say I am an open-minded skeptic.  I've mentioned past adventures in Savannah, Georgia and Fort Smith, Arkansas where I'd experienced some strange feelings connected to a few places.  Jason and Grant have turned The Crescent into a ghost hunting hot spot.

It was spring break.  It was crowded.  It was busy.  It was the 1886 Crescent Hotel in Eureka Springs Arkansas.
We did a little exploring before the tour and snapped shots where we felt like it expecting nothing.  Enlarge this photo and you see a large orb sitting nicely on the white chair to the right.  There was an old wheelchair from Dr Baker's reign sitting in the far corner.  No happy feelings here.
The room where our tour began.
Notice orb lower left corner.
Our tour ladies with Zack, Andrew and Toni.
They did a brilliant job.
This was one place that I was very uncomfortable in during our free ranging tour.  I couldn't stay here long. I can't really tell why how or what I felt except I didn't like it.  As the tour came through the EFM Meter went crazy.  I won't tell you why...just in case you want to tour.  

Let's just say the guide was impressed with the places I chose and mentioned before the tour.
Toni closed the door behind all,  Looked back at the door way...go ahead...zoom in on the doorway and tell me what you see.  NO ONE WAS THERE.
Do you see the woman in the doorway?  Ghost, imagination, trick of light?  You decide.

We had two camera phones and two cameras.  Four people taking pictures.  We captured light anomalies and many orbs. Every picture was different.  What that means...who knows.  I think it means we had a good time.

You can get night vision equipment that's not very expensive to see the ghosts better . I have a friend that has a lens for her camera that does that and she is a ghost hunter ! Some of the images she has captured we have seen are amazing ! Looks spooky there . Thanks for sharing . Have a good day !

I bet you had fun. I don't know if I am brave enough like you. I think it is amazing what you can catch on film when no one is watching. What a fun thing to do on spring break.

This is fascinating! There are so many mysteries and unknown elements, supernatural, spiritual, and otherwise. Very interesting, a bit unnerving, but fascinating!

Sue said...

What fun! And just the tiniest bit creepy, too.

Perfect combo.

=)

Very disturbing, but fascinating. Having experienced stuff like this, I understand the uneasiness.

Sandy said...

Great pictures. The rooms/areas where you were not comfortable and couldn't stand around in were they chilly?

Brian Miller said...

Awesome!

Neat, eerie, creepy, Kool - saw the orbs and the lady in the photo. This is your kinda haunt, but you were feeling it, weren't you - you knew it wasn't a good feeling, some of it, right - cause there are happy haunts and sad n creepy ones, I think, depending on what happened to the ghosts to end their lives? Enjoy the rest of your holiday and safe trip home.

DesertHen said...

I got chills reading this! I see the orbs and the lady too! I have felt and seen since I was a little girl!

That hallway alone (first photo) looked scary enough for me! You are a brave soul. Me? I'm a chicken shit! :)
