Shady Lady Ghosts and Others

Here are a few of the locations brought to my attention.  If you have a story of a fallen, shady, or merely unsteady lady associated with a hotel, mansion, or drawing room, please contact me.

Tombstone, Arizona
The place called 'Big Nose Kate's, in the heyday of Tombstone when they licensed about 3,000 ladies of the night.  Her real name was Mary Katherine Harmony and she haunts her place.

Flagstaff, AZ
The Museum club , built in the 1930's, may be haunted by past owner Thelma and her husband.

Hotel Monte Vista, has a story of two women from the 'red light district' to the south who were a) murdered in one of the rooms, or b) were thrown from the windows in one room. The room is the 'Gary Cooper', named for one of the Hollywood actors who would stay there while filming nearby.

Jerome, AZ
The 'Inn' boasts a shady lady who remains to taunt guests and staff named ,'Jennie'.  Once a booming mining town with heavy traffic in sin some inhabitants may linger.

Dorrington, California

Jersey Bridge, California
A Spanish woman was said to have been lynched there in 1851 during the summer.  She had murdered a man who made unseemly advances toward her and local town folk took exception. A men's club in a nearby town had her skull for many years for secret rituals - so no wonder if she walks!
