Roads Hotel

Located north of Indianapolis in the small town of Atlanta, Indiana sits an old hotel, that is said to be incredibly haunted.  In the late 1800s, the town of Atlanta served as a railroad layover town which made it a great location for a hotel.  There are even rumors that infamous names like John Dillinger and Al Capone once stayed at the Roads Hotel.

According to the Roads Hotel website, not only did the hotel play host to some notorious guests, the hotel is said to be very haunted.

 This historic place believed to have been built in 1893 by Abraham Kauffman. The hotel served as a layover for the railroad that passed through the business district. Many of the ancestors of the town state they had seen John Dillinger and Al Capone around the area.  It is believed to be haunted by many spirits. Sightings have included apparitions of men, women and children. Other ghostly occurrences have included disembodied voices, footsteps, lights turning on and off, and doors opening and closing.

 

You Can Investigate the Roads Hotel Yourself

The Roads Hotel knows that what they have is an extremely unique piece of history, and they want to share the Roads Hotel with anyone who is interested.  While the hotel no longer serves as an actual hotel, you can book the hotel for paranormal investigations year-round.

A Scare That Cares

One thing I think is really cool about the Roads Hotel, is this hotel is cared for by the Lost Limbs Foundation, and a portion of all the money made at the Roads Hotel from paranormal investigations goes to the Lost Limbs Foundation which is a nonprofit that helps families of amputee children afford prosthetics, so by visiting the Roads Hotel, you're helping to support a great cause as well!
