Built in 1882, the Grand Union Hotel is located in Fort Benton, the oldest settlement in Montana. The historic hotel itself being the longest operating hotel in the Big Sky Country, is as you’d expect full of paranormal activity.
Although the majority of the reports here are tame, it doesn’t take anything away from it being one of the most haunted hotels in the country. The sounds of stomping hooves are heard, likely due to a drunk cowboy that was shot to death on his horse whilst trying to ride on horseback up the staircase.
If you’re awoken in the middle of the night to the sounds of running up and down the halls, don’t complain, it’s just the spirits of children having fun. One of the strangest occurrences here happens in room 202, where mysterious blue lights are said to flash across the room without explanation. There’s also the apparition of a man in a long dark cloak that’s been witnessed wandering around the hotel.
Room 202 is one of the more active rooms, however, there have been reports of activity throughout the Grand Union Hotel, so you’ll be good booking any of the rooms. Have fun and let us know if you experience anything!
