Last night we had 4 ghost hunters here at the Walnut Street Inn looking for our ghost. While we have had 3 sightings by guests, and two bizarre encounters by staff (including me)we can't get her to perform on que. Last night's paranormal activity reporters had several strange things happen (their fan came on, something standing behind them in a photo, their camcorder shut off the minute they left the room)but no face to face encounters. I guess I'm glad. I would have liked to call one up for them, but having a spirit in the house might scare some people away. I'm here 7 days a week, and I have never found a house to be more inviting and at peace than this one. Many families have graced our rooms since it was finished in 1884, and if there is a spirit present, they are a friendly ghost, at peace with their location.
Our ghost hunters from last night had a great time, and according to the note they left in the room journal, to celebrate the trip, they "all got tattoos to remember our night in Springfield." Now who says we don't leave an endellable mark on our guests! Come on down and see for yourself. And if you want, I'll tell you the stories.
