  Lady in Red Phantom

The Celebration of The Drake Hotel's Grand Opening on New Year's Eve   Photo Credit:  Windy City Ghosts

On New Year's Eve of 1920, the Drake Hotel celebrated its opening night with much glamour and tinsel! It was both magnificent and tragic. It was magnificent because the Drake was to be one of Chicago’s most beautiful and celebrated hotels. It was tragic because, according to legend, it was the night the “Woman in Red” ended her life.

On this day, a man and his fiancée (who was clad in a brilliant red silk gown) attended the gala held in the Drake’s Gold Coast Room. The man stepped away and did not return, so his fiancée went looking for him. She found him, enthralled by another woman, in the Palm Court parlor. The devastated woman climbed to the roof and jumped to her death.

Since then, guests at the Drake have reported seeing her apparition in the Gold Coast Room, Palm Court, and on the top 10th floor as well as the roof. Condemned to replay her final night, her restless soul wanders attempting to find peace with the final tragic chapter of her life. In addition to spontaneous phantom appearances in her red garment, workers and guests also get a creepy and uncomfortable feeling in the ballroom. 

 

     The Phantoms of the Inn

The Inn on Main Street Bed and Breakfast, located in Weaverville, North Carolina, is indeed very spirited on New Year’s Eve! Although the innkeepers of this historic bed and breakfast will not admit it's haunted, there's no denying the tales told by guests or staff verifying the house's spectral activity. Phantoms lurk in its spaces, and mysteriously, they have a special preference for making an appearance on New Year’s Eve.

Strangely, on New Year's Eve, guests frequently hear pictures fall off the wall multiple times, never finding physical evidence of them actually falling. Is this a residual haunting or just too much celebratory champagne? In addition, many also hear the back door open and then close. Yet, again, no mortal is ever discovered entering the building. 

The house was built 100 years ago by a doctor. The innkeepers know of at least one person has died in the house. A bloodstain remains under the tiles in a bathroom that was once part of his operating room and lab. The stain was never able to be removed, even with sanding, resorting to it being hidden with tile. Could any of these haunts have a relevance to the celebrations of a New Year? 

Do not hesitate from staying at this inn. On the other hand, be fascinated for the opportunity!  Innkeepers have been told all the energy here is good, claiming they've never lost a guest to the inn's 10 identified phantoms including men, women, children, Native Americans, and even a white dog. But again, they will never confirm their presence. Really?

 

The Haunted Agora Theatre

A holiday ghost hunt on December 31st was planned to seek the legends that haunt this historical venue. The entity they sought most was the ominous man in the yellow raincoat. During the investigation, one of the ghost hunters felt a splash of cold water on the back of her legs. Upon reaching down to find the source, she found that her tights were dry and there was no one behind her who could have spilled liquid. Still, a strange wet sensation remained tingling and continued where she felt “water” minutes after the encounter.

This, in fact, is a common experience, all attributed to the man in the yellow raincoat. The iconic apparition is not shy! He has been seen on the stage, on the catwalk, and in several of the viewing balconies. Apparently, he is interactive with spectators, often casting “disciplinary looks” when the audience is naughty.

Other experiences that many have encountered include doors opening on their own and the appearance of what looks like bloodstains in the basement.

The Agora Theatre and Ballroom has seen the performances of Elvis and The Beatles and is also home to some spirits. Besides the man in the yellow raincoat, many apparitions have been seen. A psychic once did an investigation and said the spirit's name was John.
