Join American Hauntings
Guide Loren Hamilton for a chilling overnight event at
a Jefferson County , Missouri haunted landmark -- the spooky
Morse Mill Hotel! Spend the entire night searching for the
restless spirits of this historical spot during a
private overnight ghost
hunt. This may be your chance to finally come face-to-face with
the specters of the past as they roam the hallways, rooms and
corridors of this old, rambling hotel. Built in 1816, the
original one-room structure was expanded into a tavern and and
inn in the middle 1800s by John Moore, a bridge engineer who
went on to become a Confederate officer in Missouri during the
Civil War. According to legend, he became acquainted with the
Jesse and Frank James during the war and in the midst of their
outlaw career of the 1860s and 1870s, he often offered them
refuge at the hotel.

Local lore has also
connected female serial killer Bertha Gifford to the hotel,
likely since she is buried in the nearby Morse Mill Cemetery. In
November 1928, Bertha was convicted of killing two people, but
it's believed that she may have poisoned as many as 17 people
from 1910 to 1928.
The Morse Mill Hotel has a long history as a private residence,
Confederate field hospital, speakeasy during Prohibition and a
brothel -- all of which are believed to have contributed to its
history of haunting activity. There have been dozens of reports
of strange encounters and eerie happenings at the old hotel and
American Hauntings is now offering you a chance to experience
those things for yourself! Spend the
night looking for the ghosts of this historic -- and very
haunted -- hotel with a limited number of ghost hunters during a private ghost hunt. Find out
if the place is really as haunted as so many people claim! The
Morse Mill Hotel haunting experience begins at 3:00 p.m. and
continues until 3:00 a.m. -- or until the last guests go
screaming from the building!
$75 per Person for this PRIVATE American Hauntings Event!
