The Historic Anchorage Hotel

In Anchorage, Alaska there is a hotel called The Historic Anchorage Hotel.
Registered with the National Registration for Historic Places, this hotel sits on the corner of 3rd and E Street in Anchorage. Built in 1916, the hotel boasted fine china settings and was the go to place for meetings and gatherings of the dignitaries and celebrities coming to Alaska.

The hotel capitalizes on its fame for ghost haunting. It is not unusual for paintings to fly off the walls or curtains to move by themselves. The most famous of the hauntings is the ghost of Anchorage's first police Chief, John J. "Black Jack" Sturgis.

On February 20, 1921 it was reported that the police chief had been shot by his own gun by an unknown assailant. He is said to be seen every year in the same location seeking justice for himself and to solve the crime.

Other reported activity has been a bride who committed suicide before her wedding who roams one of the halls, a guest who died in the hotel,  as does children who are heard playing in the halls. Other ghosts have been reported in several different rooms.

The hotel actually has a registry for those who to report the unusual happenings and encourages their guest to do so.
