Just wanting to get away for a few days, my daughter and I headed north to Eureka Springs, AR. It’s been a goal of mine to visit the Crescent Hotel for many years.
The first thing we do when we arrive in Eureka Springs is get directions to this fabulous hotel. As we drive into the parking lot, I can already tell this is going to be an adventure. I grab my digital camera (with extra batteries) and start taking pictures.
We planned to take the “Ghost Tour” that night, but when we started to sign up, ‘something’ told me to wait, do this tour the ‘next’ night instead. So we went for a carriage ride that night, outside the Crescent Hotel. The ride was fun, breezy and very informative. (We were told a lot about the history of Eureka Springs). When our ride was over, we tried taking some pictures, but they were coming out blurry.
When I started looking through the pics on my camera later that night, I discovered something. There was ‘someone’ else in the pictures. Right behind/above my daughter was am image of a man. The carriage driver had handed my daughter her dog for the pictures. The dog (a Yorkie) kept looking up and around my daughters head, as if he saw something that we couldn’t see.
Well, we took the tour the next night. At the end of the tour, the last place they take you is the ‘basement’, or what used to be the ‘morgue’. I took a picture in one of the rooms down there. In the picture there is a man standing by the wall, watching me. Other people on the tour with us looked at my picture and all had goose bumps and were ready to leave … ASAP!
At the end of the Ghost Tour at the Crescent Hotel, I walked into one of the rooms in the basement and took some pictures. After looking at the FIRST picture I took with my digital camera, I thought I heard someone (a man’s voice) ask “Who are you?”
That was kind of scary, because I was in that room alone for the first few minutes.
After we got home from our trip to Eureka Springs, I awoke in the middle of the night to find the blanket I keep on the end of my bed on the other side of the room, on the floor. Okay, maybe someone came home with us?

Jess has sent in a picture that was taken at the Crescent Hotel by James Nelson. Here is what she had to say:
“My nephew took a picture at the Crescent Hotel last Halloween, he was just trying to get a picture of the back of the fireplace in the lobby, when he looked at the picture on his camera there was a black streak in the middle of the picture, we were all joking saying he got a ghost picture, we pulled it off and put it on a laptop and got it to full size, turns out the black streak was a man, a transparent man.”
What do you think? Was it a reflection of some type or�was it�really�a ghost?
