This week’s photo challenge subject is Eerie! This got me to thinking about what eerie photos do I have and then my thoughts turned to just a couple of photos that I have which I took in towns of haunted places. What could be eerier than that?
This first photo is of the Cary House. It was after taking this photo that I discovered there appears to be a ghost in the upper right window of the photo. To me, I can see the transparent image of a woman in Victorian dress. She is in the upper quarter of the window with her head just near the top of the window and she has a lace collar that comes from around her neck, over the shoulders to a “v” at her chest. It is said that guests at the hotel smell perfume, and that ghosts roam the hall, often times jiggling the door knobs, scaring the guests.
I wonder if it is her perfume that guests can smell? I trimmed the photo so that maybe you can see her better in this photo!
The window with the woman
One of my co-workers and I were talking one day about the Cary House, and he too saw this woman in the same window!
Just across the street from the Cary House is the Hangman’s Tree. Placerville was called “Hangtown” due to the number of hangings that occurred in the town. The original hanging tree is located inside this building…It is said that in the bar, which is now closed due to renovation, glasses fly off the shelves, and the jukebox comes on by itself.
Hangman’s Tree is actually located inside this building.
This next place is…The Jerome Grand Hotel, located in Jerome Arizona. Before this was a hotel it was a hospital. Visitors to the hotel claim to hear voices, smell cigar smoke and have lights turn off and on by themselves. Medicinal smells waft through the halls…

Down in Murphys CA, the historic Murphy’s Historic Hotel is said to be haunted by three spirits. One is a prospector who guests and staff sometimes see sitting hunched over in the bar…Of the other two, one is a woman who oversees the hotel, and the other is a child who runs the hallways.
