Built in 1888 as a railroad stopover, the Historic Calumet Hotel in Pipestone Minnesota is one of Missouri’s most historic and most certainly haunted hotels.
Located at the corner of Main Street and Hiawatha Avenue, the building is not the first to grace this address, and it perhaps explains why there may be more cause for ghostly activity.
The original three-story, the wood-framed building, was completely destroyed by fire in 1886, claiming the life of Rev. Alfred Stoddard Orcutt. Another fire was to engulf the hotel on Valentine’s Day 1944, claiming the life of a guest named Chris E. Herschberger.
Paranormal goings-on at the hotel are rife, but there is a particular concentration on Room 308, the room in which Herschberger died that fateful night in 1944.
There have been reports of activity throughout the Historic Calumet Inn, so you’ll be good booking any of the rooms. Have fun and let us know if you experience anything!
