Along the shores of the Great Salt Lake in Utah stands The Saltair Resort. The resort has three separate incarnations and seems to have been plagued with a curse of sorts, because the first two Saltair resorts were destroyed by fire and the third has suffered flooding. This originally was a family place for fun similar in style to Coney Island with carnival rides and games and today is a place that hosts concerts and other events. Historic events were hosted here and famous people visited. Tragedy has been a part of the story and this seems to have led to spirits. While the first two locations are abandoned, they still seem to host spirits and according to guests and employees, the third version of Saltair is quite haunted. Our listener Annjanette Beth suggested this location and helped with research. She joins us to share the history and hauntings of the Saltair Resort. The Moment in Oddity was suggested by listener Annjanette Beth and features Pawapicts and This Month in History features the start of the First Opium War.

I believe this place is haunted.
I went there as a kid with my mom before it was a venue. There was renovations being done and three stage carts from a train. I saw something and the feeling was horrible.
As an adult I visited in the evening when they were making it a venue. There was foot steps in the gravel close to us and then I felt a sting on my foot.
When I looked at it when we left- there was a long, thin white mark on my toe. I compared the mark to my rail road tie I collected in high school and it matched.
