11 reportedly haunted sites I saw on my Route 66 honeymoon
2. Mineral Springs Hotel, Alton, IL
This hotel, built in 1914 to take advantage of the mineral springs below it, is now houses a mall of eclectic shops and the Historic Museum of Torture Devices, which was closed when we went. Legend says the hotel is haunted by the ghost of the Jasmine Lady, who fell down the marble steps and died, and the ghost of little girl who drowned in the hotel pool in the 1920s.
In its heyday, the hotel was known for the swimming pool, which was located in the basement. The hotel claimed it was the largest in the state.
