So, what exactly is it that makes Goldfield Hotel (pictured above) haunted? Well, according to legend, room 109 is haunted by a pregnant prostitute named Elizabeth. Supposedly, she was chained to the radiator by George Winfield, the hotel’s original owner. He didn’t want anyone to know he had gotten her pregnant and was afraid she’d tell, ruining his reputation. After giving birth, Elizabeth was left to die in the room and her newborn was disposed of by being thrown down the mine shaft, which the hotel was built over. Since that incident, many people have reported seeing her in room 109. They’ve also felt her presence. Several people have even heard loud cries from a baby. Elizabeth may be a well-known ghost at the hotel, but she’s not the only one. Ghosts of small children playing on the lobby staircase have been reported, in addition to a ghost that randomly stabs hotel visitors. Even the ghost of George Winfield has been seen.
