Ghosts of Anchorage, Alaska

To celebrate Halloween, I found a few ghosts in Anchorage, Alaska for you.

The current Anchorage Hotel, an annex to the original, was built in 1938, which means it’s had plenty of years to acquire ghosts. Stories are told of children knocking on doors and giggling, one appearing in a closet. A lady in white roams the lobby. Another ghost is reportedly the first Chief of Police, Chief Sturgis, whose murder was never solved. A medium says that much of downtown Anchorage has a disruption in the Earth’s energy field.

Maybe that’s why there are reports of ghosts at the historic Fourth Avenue Theatre down the street. A lady can be seen in the mirrors between the men’s and women’s bathrooms.

But they’re not all downtown. At UAA’s Wendy Williamson Theater, there is a lady in white [Why are they always in white?], a man, and a teen boy haunting the building. Women who have brown hair sometimes report being pushed down a stairway, lights explode, and props fly the off furniture.

I love to share my passion for Alaska and its history in my writing for young adults and their grown ups.
