North Dakota’s oldest and most haunted hotel, the Rough Riders Hotel in Medora ND, has been welcoming guests since 1884. Named after a Cavalry unit led by Theodore Roosevelt, the hotel once played host to the famous U.S. President.

According to reports, guests and staff alike have witnessed the ghost of a little boy on the top floor of the hotel. His spirit likes to play with guests tapping on walls, and banging on doors, and he can be heard laughing by guests.

There’s not much more detail surrounding who else or what else may be haunting the hotel, but people have witnessed furniture moving, and strange sounds and occurrences that can’t be explained.
