New Century Air Center

Once the Olathe Naval Air Station, a combat pilot training center from WWII to the Vietnam War era, the New Century Air Center is now a commercial airport, industrial complex and business center. An airplane crash that cost a pilot his life around 1960 is believed to be the source of strange things that happen in the Army Reserve Chinook helicopter unit. Apparitions and unexplained voices, whistles, and footsteps have been reported, as well as locks that won’t stay locked and doors that open and close by themselves. The New Century Air Center has been featured on TV’s Haunted America.

From 1995-2003/2004 my dad was one of the main security guards at New Century! I remember as a kid going and visiting him at work and taking him dinner. There was always someone walking around whistling. You couldn’t go to the bathroom downstairs by the guard tower, bc the door would open itself. You could always feel a presence there, but it was never scary or threatening. We played all over the hangar. My dad was the main guard interviewed on the haunted america TV show. I remember feeling so cool bc MY DAD was on TV. Oh how I miss that town.

Back in the summer of 1999 I was walking with my friends during the evening we saw a floating blueish-green cloud floating of the airport that was the only could around that night. I would also like to point out it does have Olathes name on it but, it is actually in Gardner, KS.

KANSAS HAUNTED HOUSE | FIND TERROR AT THIS AMAZING HAUNTED HOUSE KS

Field of screams kansas.

Maize, Kansas

Field of Screams Kansas is the state’s premier haunted attraction. This Wichita haunted house is only about a 20-minute drive to the city, and visitors come from all over, including places like Kansas City and Oklahoma City. Will you follow in their footsteps?

During your Field of Screams experience, you’ll walk through the haunted grounds of the Spurlock family’s estate. The Spurlocks were not your typical family; they were more like a cult. It’s rumored that the patriarch, Jeb Spurlock, was polygamous and had multiple wives, which helped him gain more children and power. Neighbors reported screams and wild laughter at all hours of the night, and their fields looked unkempt and sick, like they had been cursed.

One day, a young boy who was dared to enter the Spurlock family’s grounds disappeared. The police questioned the Spurlocks, but couldn’t find any evidence of foul play. The townspeople were outraged, and decided that they wanted justice of their own…

One night, vigilantes swarmed the Spurlock farm, but they were quickly overrun by the family. They massacred the vigilantes and did horrible things with their bodies, like beheading them with chainsaws and stuffing their bodies with corn and grass like scarecrows. Before police could arrest the Spurlocks, they vanished from the town.

Now, visitors can wander through the grounds where this bloody massacre took place. Your walk through the Field of Screams will take you through towering sorghum fields, unruly forests, dark twisting trenches, and terrifying tunnels. You can even see the horrifying Spurlock workshops where the most unspeakable acts were carried out.

You can also enter Clown Town, which has been populated by spooky clown demons that are out for blood. You’ll venture through chaotic mazes and experience dizzying 3D effects. Can you survive the clowns?

In addition, you can check out the mini escape rooms in this Wichita haunted house. Jeb’s Shack will let you investigate Jebediah Spurlock’s original home, and you’ll only have 15 minutes to solve his maniacal puzzles and escape. In The Seance Room, you’ll communicate with spirits and solve special effects and clever puzzles to attempt to escape. Will you live to see another day?

Field of Screams Kansas has great reviews on Kansas Haunted Houses , and this haunted house in KS has been in operation for over 16 seasons. Are you brave enough to face the Spurlock farm alone?

THE CREEPIEST ACTUAL HAUNTED HOUSE IN KANSAS!

THE SALLIE HOUSE

Atchinson, Kansas

The Sallie House is definitely the most haunted house in KS. It’s visited by hundreds every year, and it’s available for both daytime and overnight stays. Do you believe in the paranormal? If you don’t, you might by the end of your stay…

The Sallie House was the home of a physician from Atchison, Kansas. The front served as an office space and examination rooms, while the doctor and his family lived upstairs. One day, a frantic mother arrived at the doctor’s home with her six-year-old daughter Sallie, who had collapsed from severe abdominal pain. The doctor diagnosed her with appendicitis and knew he couldn’t delay surgery. Afraid her appendix would soon burst, he began cutting into Sallie before the anesthesia took full effects. Sallie screamed until she suddenly stopped and grew pale and limp. She died on the operating table, and her last memories were of a man who she believed was torturing her…

A young couple bought the KS haunted house in 1993, and the paranormal activity started. Their dog would growl at nothing, fires broke out in the house, and a series of sinister attacks on the husband began. Objects would visibly move when the husband drew near, and he could feel scratches on his chest and abdomen.

Since then, paranormal investigators and visitors to the house have experienced moving objects, unexplained scratches or bruises, physical touches, video equipment not working, and mysterious coldness.

Now, you can stay overnight in the Sallie House or spend an hour there alone during the day. Both are bound to send chills up your spine, but do you think you could handle the ghosts for a full night?

The Sallie House is one of the most famous haunted attractions in the world. It’s received coverage on several television shows, including Ghost Adventures , A Haunting , and Paranormal Witness . Investigators have gathered a great deal of evidence, and skeptics have turned into believers at this haunted house near me. Care to step inside?

STAY AT THIS KANSAS HAUNTED HOUSE OVERNIGHT…

THE HAUNTED MCINTEER VILLA

Looking for a real Kansas haunted house near me? You’ve found the right place!

The Haunted McInteer Villa is one of the most picturesque homes in Atchinson, Kansas. However, what lurks inside is not nearly as beautiful… There have been nine documented deaths by natural causes on the property, as well as one suicide.

There has been an extensive history of paranormal activity at this location. Lights will turn on and off in the tower, which does not have electricity. Figures can be seen in the windows when no one is at home. Boxes move right before people’s very eyes, and things are thrown off the counter. The rocking chair that a resident named Goldie died in will rock back and forth on its own.

Footsteps will walk down the hallway on the second floor in the middle of the night, and many people say that they feel like they’re being watched up there. Items will move from one location to another and doorknobs will turn on their own. You might smell phantom smells like a powdery women’s perfume or a hint of cigarette smoke. People have even heard male and female voices, and a shadow person has been seen a few times.

You can stay overnight to have your own spooky experiences at The Haunted McInteer Villa. You and your guests will be able to explore every nook and cranny of the house and decide whether you believe the spirits are really there in this haunted house KS…

The Mansion

Sylvester Pierce was a wealthy business man who achieved his fortune as the owner of the S.K. Pierce and Sons Furniture Company.  The success of the company and the furniture industry led to Gardner, Massachusetts being known as "Chair CIty".

In the late 1880s Pierce decided he would build a mansion befitting a man of his public stature.  The mansion he created was a marvel for its time.  The nearly 7000 sq ft mansion boasted 10 bedrooms and took 100 men a year and a half to build.  Hand carved mouldings and cornices are seen throughout home.  Painstaking detail was used to create every inch of this masterpiece from the master bedroom to the servants quarters.  The guest list was one for the ages as the home is said to have hosted the likes of former President Calvin Coolidge, Minnesota Fats, Bette Davis, P.T. Barnum and Norman Rockwell, while also serving as a well-known meeting place for the Freemason Society.

Pierce, his wife Susan, and their son had big dreams when moving into this one of a kind mansion, but their dreams fell apart when Mrs. Susan Pierce mysteriously succumbed to a bacterial illness just weeks after moving in.  After a year of mourning , Pierce married Ellen Pierce, a woman 30 years his junior, with whom he had two more children.  Pierce passed away in 1888 leaving behind his new wife and their three sons.  When Ellen Pierce passed away years later, the three sons bickered constantly over ownership of the mansion and the chair business.  The Great Depression ended up stifling the business and eventually SK's youngest son, Edward, took control of the mansion.

The mansion underwent hard times as the family fortune dwindled.  Edward turned the mansion into a boarding home where some unsavory activity such as drinking, gambling, and prostitution became the norm.  There were even tales of murder.  It is said that a prostitute was strangled in the infamous red bedroom on the second floor while another boarder, a Finnish immigrant named Eino Saari, burned to death in the master bedroom in 1963.  Some believe that this was a spontaneous combustion as there was little damage to the surrounding room.  Another story has a young boy being drowned in the basement.

Over the subsequent years, guests of this mansion have suggested that it is rich with paranormal activity.  The ghosts of S.K. Pierce himself, Susan Pierce, Edward Pierce, as well as a nanny named Mattie Cornwell, a gentlemen named David who some believe to have been the red room strangler, the prostitute who was murdered in the red room, a young boy, a younger girl who was perhaps the granddaughter of Pierce, Eino Saari, and some unnamed dark entities in the basement have been described as some of this mansion's many ghostly residents.

Guests have experienced everything from voices, chanting, full body apparitions, moving furniture, screens flying off windows, slamming doors, the sounds of footsteps on the stairs and halls, sudden temperature changes, foul odors, shadow people, and an ominous lions roar which can shake the house, which many believe is the former Mr. Pierce imposing his displeasure with the current state of the home and its residents.  Others have felt the pressure of hands actually pushing them.  One visitor felt that a presence was attempting to push her down the steps while another was almost forced out of a third floor window.  Paranormal experts have said that the entities in this mansion are the "most advanced" they have ever seen, as they are capable of harnessing electrical energy and converting that power into the ability to move large objects and impose their will physically on their current surroundings.

Previous home owners have taken great strides in uncovering the secrets of this home.  Well known paranormal groups such as those from the TV shows, Ghost Hunters, Ghost Adventure, and My Ghost Story have visited this home to learn more about these possible hauntings.  The stories of this home have also been captured in books such as Haunted Massachusetts and Bones in the Basement: Surviving the SK Pierce Haunted Victorian (a book written by Joni Mayhan, chronicling the previous owners' experiences in the mansion).  The house has been cited as the #2 most haunted house in Massachusetts and the 9th most haunted house in the USA.

In 2015, the Dark Carnival acquired this property with the intent on fully revitalizing this once great Victorian and restoring it to the beautiful centerpiece of the neighborhood that it once was. Once the renovations are complete, the Dark Carnival will open the Mansion to the public for overnight rentals for the brave souls who wish to experience the Mansion during it's darkest hours, and for historical ghost tours where guests can learn about both the positive and negative history of this home. During the Halloween season we plan to open the basement only of the Mansion (weekends only in October) for what will truly be a one of a kind SK Pierce themed Halloween attraction as it will be the only haunt in the country that combines the haunt industry and the paranormal industry. As guests travel through the bowels of the Mansion, they will encounter 30-35 of our trained actors, high end illusions and animations, and may even get a glimpse of the truly paranormal. Best of all, since this attraction is only in the basement, guests can have some scares in the spirit of the season without ever affecting the majesty of the main levels of this marvelous home.

Note:  This attraction is not for the faint of heart.  There is a good possibility that you will witness paranormal activity.  The entities in this mansion are extremely advanced and have demonstrated a unique ability to impose their will "physically" on guests.  For this reason, a detailed injury waiver must be signed by each guest prior to experiencing "the SK Haunted Victorian Mansion".  Please do not behave in an antagonistic manner towards these entities at any time, as you may be placing yourself and other guests in danger.

Wilson, Kansas railroad tracks

Haunted kansas.

Kansas, known for its flat plains and friendly hospitality, has a hidden side that beckons the brave and the curious. Beneath the vast farm fields and charming small towns lie tales of restless spirits and spine-chilling encounters.

If you’re curious about haunted locations in Kansas or just looking for a unique travel adventure, head to a few of these locations or book a stay at one of the most haunted hotels. Kansas seems to have more than its share of haunted places! 

Kansas may not be the first state that comes to mind when you think of good ghost stories, but the Sunflower State has a large share of haunted history waiting to be discovered. From historic hotels to haunted homes and abandoned tunnels, each location has its own thrilling story to tell.

In this journey through the supernatural, we will embark on a tour of some of the most haunted places in Kansas you can visit. We’ve even included haunted homes and haunted hotels in Kansas where you can spend a night if you dare!

But here’s the twist – we’re not just here for ghostly encounters; we’re here to support local businesses that are keeping these haunted legends alive. They need your support, so make sure to head to at least one of these places for a haunting good time so you can take an active role in helping to keep history alive!

Whether you’re a paranormal enthusiast, a history buff, or just looking for a unique travel experience, join us as we delve into Kansas’ ghostly past while supporting the local businesses that keep these eerie legends alive. Get ready to embrace the supernatural, one local haunt at a time!  

Do You Believe in Ghosts?

For the record, I do believe in ghosts. We even have a (mostly) friendly ghost who lives in our barn. But I wasn’t overly excited to try to find ghosts on this trip. And I have to admit that I was glad that we didn’t have any super scary or spooky encounters for me to report. But there were some uncomfortable feelings for sure!

With that disclaimer, I think you need to be receptive to ghosts if you want to find them at the locations listed here. While I’m glad we didn’t find spooky ghosts, if YOU want to experience paranormal encounters, keep reading for the most haunted places in Kansas that you can visit!  

Atchison – Supposedly THE Most Haunted Town in Kansas

The city of Atchison, located in northeastern Kansas about 60 miles northwest of Kansas City is a cute river town along the Missouri River.

Atchison is well known for several reasons including its historical charm and well-preserved 19th-century architecture. The city boasts a wealth of beautifully restored Victorian-era homes and buildings, making it a popular destination for history enthusiasts and architecture buffs.

Atchison is also famous for its connection to the aviation pioneer Amelia Earhart who was born in Atchison in 1897. The city celebrates her legacy with the Amelia Earhart Festival, Amelia Earhart Birthplace Museum, Amelia Earhart Airport, and more.

Additionally, Atchison is also quite famous for its haunted history. It’s billed as one of the most haunted towns in Kansas and the town really plays up that reputation, drawing visits from well-known paranormal enthusiasts from across the country.

When we arrived in Atchison I immediately noted the smell, which some people liken to baking bread. Home to a grain processing corporation, MGP, Atchison smells a lot of my nearby town Muscatine, Iowa which is also home to a grain processing corporation called GPC.

MGP is famous for turning corn into an award-winning portfolio of beverage alcohol for distilled spirits. Smells play a factor in my mood. I guess that’s why I mention it. LOL

1. Sallie House

But if haunts are what you want, get to the Sallie House. Infamous for its ghostly presence and is said to be one of the most haunted houses in the United States, the Sallie House is top of the list for haunted Atchison.  

Front image of Sallie House

Sallie House Atchison, KS

It’s said to be haunted by many ghosts, but the most infamous is a little girl named Sallie. Sallie passed away tragically on an operating table  in the home  after a botched operation by a local doctor to fix her burst appendix.

For a $20 fee, you can reserve a time to explore the Sallie House on your own, which we did during our visit to Atchison. You can also spend the night in the Sallie House if you dare – but you’ll need to bring your own sleeping bags. I’d also recommend bringing an air mattress.

Many visitors report strange occurrences at the Sallie House such as moving objects, mysterious footsteps, ghost sightings of three ghosts – Sallie the young girl, an old woman who fell to her death on the basement stairs, and perhaps a teenage boy with the mind of an 8-year-old.

Some people claim they receive mysterious scratches on their body when they visit. And other people claim they were able to speak to dead relatives. You can read about experiences visitors have had there in a notebook left on the kitchen table. We didn’t experience anything too out of the ordinary when we visited.

But I can tell you that I felt very weird and wanted to leave. The house is decorated in the 1980s style – shag carpet, musty smell and all. Upstairs is a kid’s bedroom with creepy toys. It just gives off a very unpleasant vibe.

The basement is where the really scary things supposedly happen, but we didn’t venture there. To visit the basement, you have to go down with a tour guide. I wouldn’t have gone down even if we had been with a guide. I just didn’t like this house.

Reserve your spot to visit the  Sallie House .

2. 1889 McInteer Villa

The 1889 McInteer Villa , also in Atchison, is another one of the most haunted homes in Kansas. Known for its elegant architecture and its share of supernatural happenings, this beautiful home is also on the National Register of Historic Places.  

Front image of McInteer Villa

1889 McInteer Villa Atchison, KS

Legend has it that the former owner, Nellie McInteer, died in the house and that her ghost still lingers here. Guests have experienced cold spots, flickering lights, and the unexplained feeling of being watched. 

The 1889 McInteer Villa is open to ghost hunters, paranormal investigators, or curious people who just want to see if they can hear the strange noises or see the strange lights. Many overnight guests report witnessing spirits and weirdness when they brave a stay at the McInteer Villa.

There are four floors to explore, and if you’re brave enough, you can stay overnight in the house. It costs $400 per night for up to ten people to spend the night at McInteer Villa. You have to bring your own bedding. While you can sleep ON the beds, you may not sleep IN them.

Reserve your spot to visit the  1889 McInteer Villa  here.

3.  The Sante Fe Depot

Home to the Atchison Chamber of Commerce, Visitor’s Center and the Historical Society Museum this building is a great first stop when you get into town. You can talk to town representatives, make reservations to see the Sallie House and get insider information about the city.

It’s also home to the  Whiskey Depot  where you can try local whiskey flights, wines, and signature cocktails.

4. Evah C Cray Historical Home

Supposedly built on the city’s first cemetery, the Cray Home is another famous haunted house in Atchison. It’s open for guided public tours and is really neat to walk through.

5. waggener home or “gargoyle house”.

This is a private residence around the corner from the Cray home and sadly it’s not open to the public. However, it is a must-see stunning brick home with amazing balconies and gargoyles on the roof.  

Waggener Home Gargoyle House front steps

The house was featured in a Travel Channel segment on Haunted Atchison and an owner is said to have fallen to his death when he tried to remove the gargoyles from the roof.

6. Molly’s Hollow at Jackson Park

Molly’s Hollow is an area at Jackson Park , supposedly the most haunted park in Atchison. The urban legend is that a young woman named Molly was found hanging dead from a tree. She was either lynched or hung herself. No one knows what really happened. But, if you can find Molly’s Hollow after dark, you might be able to hear her scream.

7.  Haunted Trolley Tours

There are so many more haunted places in Atchison than the few I mentioned. To learn more, buy a ticket for a Haunted Trolley Tour . Happening only during September and October leading up to Halloween, these one-hour narrated rides take place on the Atchison Trolley .

Join in so you can see the haunted sites and hear about the mysteries and chilling stories of Atchison. The tours cost $10 per person. Buy your ticket from  Visit Atchison .

The Haunted Town of Leavenworth

Another town on the list of most haunted places in Kansas is Leavenworth . Also located in the Northeastern part of Kansas along the banks of the Missouri River, Leavenworth is 25 miles northwest of Kansas City , making it part of the greater Kansas City metropolitan area .  

Explore Leavenworth Mural

Explore Leavenworth Mural

This historic river town might be most famous as the home of Fort Leavenworth, one of the oldest active military installations west of the Mississippi River. It’s also billed as one of the most haunted military forts by the  Travel Channel .

8. The Leavenworth Local Hotel

If you’re looking for haunted hotels, Kansas delivers. The first haunted hotel we stayed at during our Kansas Road trip was the The Leavenworth Local .

Formerly the Catholic Immaculata High School built in 1923, the Leavenworth Local Hotel is now a beautiful boutique hotel with a rich history and a haunting past. While we didn’t experience any haunting when we stayed here, hotel staff members told us about some of their experiences seeing a little girl ghost and also the spirit of a former nun.

Not only are the rooms unique and beautiful, but the Leavenworth Local also has a pickleball court, a gymnasium, and a cute little breakfast/bar area. The rooms were clean, very dark at night, and the bedding was completely luxurious. I’d definitely stay here again, ghosts or not.

Book your stay at the  Leavenworth Local Hotel .

9.  fort leavenworth.

Visiting Fort Leavenworth is a great experience for visitors interested in the supernatural and military history and culture too. There are many reports of haunted historic buildings, ghostly encounters and unexplained phenomena from military personnel and residents of Fort Leavenworth.

Haunted places at Fort Leavenworth include the Rookery (the oldest home in the state of Kansas), the Old Disciplinary Barracks, Fort Leavenworth National Cemetery , the U.S. Disciplinary Barracks Cemetery, and more.

The Frontier Army Museum offers a  Haunted Fort Leavenworth Tour  in October. This walking tour lasts two hours and is for appropriate for ages 10 and up. Tickets cost $25 per person. You can buy tickets at the  Frontier Army Museum website .

Other must-see spots at Fort Leavenworth include:  

The frontier army museum.

The Frontier Army Museum houses an extensive collection of military artifacts, uniforms, weapons, and also tells the history of the U.S. Army and its important role in westward expansion.

The Buffalo Soldiers Monument

This monument is an important reminder of their resilience and the broader struggle African Americans have had for civil rights and equality and describes the often forgotten role that African-American soldiers had in the westward expansion of the United States.

Please note: Fort Leavenworth is an operational military base. That means you’ll have to go through security and get a visitor’s pass to enter. You can pre-register for a  visitor’s pass  here.  

Fort Leavenworth Cemetery

Fort Leavenworth National Cemetery

Is wilson, kansas also haunted.

Wilson is situated in the heart of Kansas, approximately 140 miles northwest of Wichita and 220 miles west of Kansas City. It is part of Ellsworth County and is often referred to as the “ Czech Capital of Kansas ” due to its strong Czech heritage.  

Wilson Railroad Tracks

With a population of only 859 people, there are a surprising number of interesting things to do in Wilson including:

  • Seeing more than 24 historic limestone buildings from the late 1800s and early 1900s 
  • World’s Largest Czech Egg
  • Atlas Ad Astra Missile Silo site
  • Three restaurants including the Sample Room, The Barn, and Made from Scratch
  • Outdoor recreation at the nearby Wilson Lake

I’d like to go back in a few years and see if progress has been made on the Wilson Czech Opera House. Sadly, this historic building burned down in 2009, but plans are in the works to turn it into an open-air theater. I hope they come to fruition!

10. midland railroad hotel.

The Midland Railroad Hotel is a charming historic hotel in Wilson that takes you back to the golden era of rail travel. Originally built in 1899, it reminds me of the  Historic Park Inn in Mason City, Iowa . It features 28 guest rooms on three levels, all comfortably renovated during a six-year, $3.2 million renovation project.

We stayed on the third floor and the rooms were small yet comfortable. This historic hotel also has a ghostly reputation. The apparition of a little girl is often spotted in the hotel’s hallways or jumping on beds. According to an article in  Main Street Kansas , there’s not a single hotel employee who hasn’t seen or felt something at this hotel. Yet again, we were on the third floor, supposedly the most haunted, and didn’t notice anything out of the ordinary.

Book your stay at the  Midland Railroad Hotel .

The town of ellinwood.

Another of the most haunted places in Kansas is the town of Ellinwood . Located in central Kansas approximately 10 miles southeast of Great Bend , Ellinwood was founded in the late 1800s by German immigrants.

Eillinwood has the most interesting underground tunnels and another one of my favorite haunted hotels. Kansas towns apparently used to have networks of tunnels under their main streets for transportation, storage, as a way to hide unsavory places like brothels and saloons.

These tunnels used to be found across Kansas; sadly, almost all of the old tunnel networks have been filled in and destroyed over the years. The tunnels in Ellinwood are the only ones left and I highly recommend taking the Underground Tunnel Tour. It’s very interesting and so worth it!  

Ellinwood Mural

11. the historic wolf hotel.

If you want another chance to stay at a Haunted Hotel, The Historic Wolf Hotel in Ellinwood has been a hub for paranormal activity. Built in 1894, the Wolf Hotel was a high-end hotel with 30 rooms, full of salesmen and guests traveling by railraod on the Sante Fe Trail.

Today, the hotel is run like an Airbnb. Guests have acess to living areas and kitchens. I slept in a suite with a round bed complete with velvet head board. We didn’t encounter any ghosts during our stay (seems to be the them of our trip), but we did read about other people’s ghostly encounters in guest books.

We also learned about a ghost named Bernard Millit who died in the Sunflower Dining Room in 1927. The hotel offers themed ghost tours for those seeking a spooky experience.

Book your stay at the  Historic Wolf Hotel .

In addition to the Hotel Wolf, you can also participate in the Scandal At the Bank of Ellinwood Escape Room, once-a-month Sunday luncheons, and head to the secret speakeasy called The Underground. It’s located in the underground tunnels and is open on the weekends.  

Underground Historic Wolf Hotel

12. haunted underground tunnel tours.

The Underground Tunnel Tours in Ellinwood offer a captivating blend of history, architecture, and a touch of the paranormal! If you’re curious to see this hidden world beneath the streets, the tours are unique and memorable.

You’ll journey back in time to learn a bit about the purpose and construction of the tunnels and see historic artifacts as you walk beneath the town’s historic downtown. It was so interesting to hear the stories of the area and to learn what life was like in the late 1800s.

Definitely add the Underground Tunnel Tour  to your travel bucket list!

13.  drury plaza hotel broadview wichita.

I’m sure there are a lot more haunted places to visit in Wichita , but I wanted to share one more of the haunted hotels we stayed at in Kansas, Drury Plaza Hotel Broadview Wichita.

This Wichita hotel is steeped in history and ghostly legends. Guests have reported various supernatural occurrences, from objects moving on their own to unexplained whispers in the night. It’s believed that the spirits of past guests still linger within its walls. The only weird things that happened to me at this historic hotel was I had trouble with the elevator. I blame it on user error – but I don’t think I did anything wrong! However, if you want a real taste for historic and potentially haunted hotels in Kansas, add this one to your list!
