Haunted Hotels > Flanders Hotel
A happy ghostknown as The Lady in White haunts the Flanders, a grand historic hotel, located on the boardwalk in Ocean City, New Jersey. Within this architectural masterpiece of the Jersey Shore, Emily, as she is affectionately known, appears and disappears into walls, plays with door locks, unscrews light bulbs, and sings happily in its halls.
A portrait of Emily painted by artist Tony Troy based on stories and descriptions given to him by workers and guests of the hotel is featured on the second floor. The long brown haired young women is featured by a piano wearing a long white dress and no shoes.
Her story appears near her portrait on the second floor: Over recent years, a ghost of a lady in white has often been seen wandering through the Flanders by both staff members and guests. The most recent sighting was in the basement on the building in the early hours of July 7, 1999. She was described as being in her early twenties with long brown hair. Two earlier sightings were of a similar young woman standing near the grand piano.
The sightings before that were mostly confined to the lady in white walking barefoot through the Hall of Mirrors. On many other occasions the laughter of a young woman hasbeen heard throughout the building.
Although a ghost, Emily seems happy enough. She¹s been heard singing and chuckling merrily in the many grand rooms of the Flanders.
A photograph taken at a one of the many weddings held in the banquet halls captured her ethereal form.
Workers and guests in 2002 cite swinging doors, locking doors, unscrewed chandelier light bulbs, and a the train of a white gown disappearing around the corner of a corridor as evidence that Emily still happily haunts the Flanders Hotel.
