Hotel Baker - Real St Charles Haunted Place
- 100 W Main St
- St Charles, IL
This hotel was built in 1928 for Edward J. Baker, a native of St. Charles who earned the honorary title of "Colonel" with his luck in horse racing. His vision was for an elegant hotel-resort -- the most luxurious small hotel featuring 55 rooms. The hotel has welcomed guest like John F. Kennedy, Chicago Mayor Richard J. Daley, Gerald Ford, to senators and entertainers.
Many report the place to be haunted. A suicide was commited there in the 1970s. It was the hotel chambermaid who was the victim. She was left at the altar and ended up drowning herself in the nearby Fox River. Her spirit now resides at the hotel. Some report hearing moaning sounds from the 6th floor storage room area, which was the area that housed employees back then.
