Local Haunt: Iron Horse Hotel

The Iron Horse Hotel at Night

The Iron Horse Hotel at Night

LOCATION:  500 W. Florida Street
Milwaukee, WI  53204
1-888-543-IRON (4766)

YEAR BUILT:  1907 (commissioned)

REPORTS OF PARANORMAL ACTIVITY:  One hotel engineer felt a ghostly hand push him up against the wall on the 6th floor.  We are awaiting other accounts from this floor.  In the basement, staff has taken an interest in an usual watermark (See Flickr gallery.), which seems to resemble a Native American woman.  They report that the watermark seems to change in appearance depending on weather conditions.  At times, it looks like a young girl and, at other times, it looks like an old woman.

More details from staff are expected soon.  Check back for updates to this story.  Have you had a paranormal experience at the Iron Horse Hotel or elsewhere in Milwaukee County?  If so, please submit the share form at http://www.milwaukeeghosts.com/share.asp.

HOW CAN YOU VISIT?  Iron Horse Hotel has regular business hours and it’s a hotel so you can stay the night.  See http://www.theironhorsehotel.com for details.

  1. I work at the IH and took a pic of what appears to be a ghost in a cargo elevator.
