Diane is solo on Ep. 136, but Denise does manage to sneak in for a bit! Along the most scenic route to Yosemite National Park is the city of Coulterville, which is home to the historic Hotel Jeffery. The Magnolia Saloon that is part of the hotel is one of the only saloons in America that still has the traditional bat-wing doors and it is the oldest working saloon in California. The hotel has hosted the famous, but it also hosts some unique guests. The hotel is rumored to be haunted by 17 individual spirits and the unnerving part is that the hotel claims that most of the spirits are not malevolent, meaning that some are. Join us for the history and hauntings of Hotel Jeffery! The Moment in Oddity was suggested by listener Tammie McCarroll-Burroughs and features the graves of Charlie Silver and This Day in History is by April Rogers-Krick and features colonists landing in Roanoke for the first time. Our location was suggested by listener Scott Stuller and our research assistant was Kristin Swintek.
