Another AmeriCorps members parents were visiting this week and her father is a professional Ghost Hunter (http://ghosthuntersofthefingerlakes.com/). As he travels around the country he tries to stay in Haunted places or visit them.
Well here in Juneau we have a very haunted place The Alaskan Hotel,
It’s the oldest hotel in Alaska and apparently very haunted. There are two stories about death in the Alaskan that I know of, one is Alice. A young mining couple moved up here and stayed at the hotel; he went off to mine and was to return in three weeks. After five weeks he did not return and she had run out of money so she became a prostitute. When he finally did show up a few weeks later he was so angered that he murdered her right there in the room.
The Second story involves a man named Dennis who was the owner/manager ( not sure) of the Alaskan Bar and Hotel , he lived in room 311 and one day he had a heart attack and died on the floor of his bathroom.
Now I have never been one to instantly believe in spirits or ghosts, I was always very skeptical about anything of this nature. None the less I was very excited to get to go ghost hunting with a professional and was very excited at the idea of seeing something paranormal.
First he explained to us about dowsing rods which are traditionally used as a tool for finding water i.e. wells and such. These rods can also be used as a way to speak with the spirit world; if a person is connected with the spirit world then they will be able to contact the sprits by way of the dowsing rods. Certain people are not able to use them because they are not connected with their feelings. Nicole picked up the rods and they stayed poker straight, Adam same thing, I picked them up BAM they start moving and answering every single questions I asked them. Now I know this sounds stupid but I SWEAR I was not moving them they were moving on their own in my hands I had no control. This was the creepiest thing I have every experienced in my life.
– When they form an x then that’s means yes and when they go away from each other that means no.
We spent a long time asking the rods, or Dennis the sprit we believe was in the room with us questions and every single one was answered with the correct answer. Even when we asked it questions only we knew.

Because Dennis and I had bonded so quickly I decided to go sit in the bathroom, the room he had died in and use the dowsing rods. When I sat down on the toilet to use the rods, peter decided it would be a good time to turn out the lights and try to get Dennis to turn on the light for us. The whole time I have been in the bathroom Lisa had been filming me. Now I asked Dennis is he knew what a flashlight was, bam the rods turn to the flashlight . I then ask him Dennis can you turn on the flash light. Nothing … Dennis can you try really hard? The camera goes fuzzy and she can’t even see me in the bathroom anymore, my skin gets really hot like I had just walked into a sauna and BAM the light turns on.
I will Finish the story in my next Blog
