Perhaps better known by paranormal enthusiasts as the Providence Biltmore, the Graduate Providence is a luxurious early 1900s hotel with one of the most haunted reputations of any hotel in the states. It was even named the most haunted hotel in the United States in 2000, by the American Hotel and Lodging Association.

Most of the hauntings at the Graduate Providence are said to stem from the many murders that took place here during the prohibition era. However, legend has it that the hotel financer and known Satanist, Johan Leisse Weisskopf, carried out numerous Satanic rituals in the building. He, in fact, had a chicken coop installed on the roof of the hotel so he would have a steady supply of sacrifices to make for his weekly rituals.

During the stock market crash of 1929, Weisskopf was staying in one of the rooms on the 14th floor when he heard the news. He supposedly jumped to his death shortly after.
