One of the ghosts haunting the hotel is thought to be the original owner; Japeth Rawls. He seems to be hovering and overseeing the activities of the hotel’s employees. One employee said that he was supposed to hang window treatments, but one kept falling. When he tried to rehang it, he was hit with a board in the room. He decided that Mr. Rawls didn’t like that window treatment. Many of the spirits in the hotel seem to be children as reported by guests and staff. On the second and third floors, guests have heard doors opening and closing as well as footsteps in the corridor.
