Hotel Blanche - Real Lake City Haunt
- SW Columbia Ave.
- Lake City, FL
This hotel has seen the likes of gangster Al Capone and it is rumored to be haunted by a variety of paranormal happenings. Today, the building houses some businesses on the ground floor and office space on the second, but the third floor is empty. Except for the ghosts that linger there! Witnesses have reported disembodied footsteps and voices, sounds of children playing, and doors that operate on their own.
I recently relocated to the area. I often go downtown and this building is there. This building is huge, it takes up an entire block of downtown. There are stores on the first floor. Typical creepy feeling and cold spots are noted in several of the stores. The wood floors creek and there is a feeling that someone or something is watching you. Last year around the holidays I was there at night. From the street I could see into the third and second floor windows. We saw shadows moving in the shape of a human. Several times while driving in the area I have also looked up and seen faces looking out the windows in Victorian era clothes. There is no access to the second or third floors that I am aware of by the public and I do not think the owners would parade around in Victorian era clothes either. I wish we could get inside upstairs, it would be cool to complete a paranormal investigation. I am sure with all the history there we could get some EVP's without much effort. Posted 8/5/16
