Alton, IL is home to one of the most haunted places in the state, Mineral Springs Hotel. Come Explore its mystery with Haunted Journeys.
The Mineral Springs Hotel is one of the most haunted locations in Alton, in fact the whole town is believed to be haunted! Nearly every structure, is built from the rock that was from the former Illinois State Prison. Rock is known to store and trap energies.
Since its creation in 1914, there has been many deaths and suicides. The most harrowing reported death is that of one man that was taking swimming lessons in the pool, he sank and drowned. Some people think that it was a tragic accident, whilst others feel that it was some other force.
Several spirits are said to live at this historic hotel, now open for haunted tours. Among the ghosts are The Jasmine Lady, identified by the whiff of her floral perfume; George, who may have been drowned in the hotel swimming pool around the 1920s; The Drunken Ghost, the artist responsible for the mural in the Crystal Room bar (and died before finishing it); and Cassandra, a little girl who drowned in the pool and likes to play marbles.
Full blown apparitions being seen, growls, female screams, disembodied voices and cries for help are just a small fraction of what guests have experienced and witnessed here.
With access to the "Dark, Dark" Room many people feel rage, whilst others sense being watched and followed. Others have captured the name "William" on EVP's. Some believe this is a human spirit or while others believe it's something else, mimicking and mocking!
This hotel has been featured on many televised shows including Ghost Adventures.
