Jefferson Hotel Ghost Story

Jefferson, Texas is known to some as the most haunted small town in the state of Texas. As other guests have experienced, you may here whispers from nowhere, orchestra music from a closed dining hall, knocks on walls and headboards, the smell of cigar smoke when no one is allowed to smoke here, faucets opening of their own accord, and doors pulling back when pulled shut. Children have been heard laughing and romping throughout the hotel in the middle of the night.

In Room 5, there is the story of a couple whose young son awakened them repeatedly because a man in a long coat and high boots would not go away. In Room 19, a man told his wife to go back to sleep when she awakened him with rants about a petite woman who chilled the wife's arm with a touch of her hand. Room 20 is another active room. Two older women staying there kept waking to the sound of running water from the bathroom. They'd turn it off and then find it running again.

One night, a woman was staying with her husband in Room 24 near the front of the hotel. She happened to wake up at five the next morning, so she got up and went into the hallway to make coffee. As she turned, she noticed a nice-looking man dressed in western clothes go into the entrance foyer down the hall to Rooms 20 and 21. Thinking it strange that she had not heard any doors opening or closing she went down the hall to investigate. The doors to both rooms were wide open with no one there in either room.

A girl was hired to stay a few nights while the owners were away. She wanted to be next to the only guest staying that night as she was uneasy about being alone all night in the hotel. So she decided to sleep in Room 23 on the downstairs floor. She was awakened about three in the morning to the sounds of scrapping and banging in the room above her as though someone was moving furniture. The people in the room next to her asked if she had heard loud noises from upstairs the previous night. It seems that the scrapping and banging had also awakened them at the same time.

It is said that one of the hotel's specters might be Mrs. Schluter, the woman who ran the hotel during the 1890's through the roaring 20's.
