This hotel dates back to 1855 and has seen guests including Abraham Lincoln and William Jennings Bryan. It was also the presidential campaign headquarters for Ulysses S. Grant, among others. Many believe the location is home to some ghosts, although the identities of them are unknown. Many have reported phantom cigar smoke, voices in the halls, and apparitions of people wearing period clothing who seem to walk or float through the walls.
