The DeSoto House Hotel sits at the corner of Green and Main Streets in downtown Galena, Illinois. This building has claims that it is the most haunted hotel in Illinois and with a history that includes President Abraham Lincoln, that reputation seems fitting. This was a beautiful hotel hosting grand balls until the economy hit it hard, but it has risen once again to provide the finest in accommodations. And with a Lady in Black who wandered the dining room so much that they left a hole in the wall for her, who wouldn't want to stay here? Join us as we share the history and hauntings of the DeSoto House Hotel. The Moment in Oddity was suggested by Mike Rodgers and features the Charfield Railway Disaster and This Month in History features opening of the Brooklyn Bridge. Our location was suggested by listeners Amanda Allen and Jennie Douglas.
