Update! Show Delayed until Oct 16 – “Ghost Hunters” To Air Episode On The Original Springs Hotel on A&E

Ghosts that have made their appearances to people at the The Original Springs  Hotel for decades will soon have a national audience.

Their stories will be told on an episode of “Ghost Hunters.”  The A&E show premiere has been delayed until OCTOBER 16 at 8pm CST.

The production company investigated and taped at the Hotel for five days in June. About 20 people were involved in the process, said Hotel owner-operator Mary Rennegarbe.

        I went there with my cousin and stay the night and we went ghost touring and I caught some pictures and you can see a orb by towards a window and then in the window was a man perfectly scene man and I went up to the window to see if there was really somebody looking out as my daughter was clicking pictures there was nobody in that window but in the pictures there was I think I actually caught a ghost for real probably one of the few for real ones ever

    Visited the original springs hotel for dinner, and went to lobby to ask about exploring hotel. They gave us a small folder of papers to read about the hauntings. I smelled pipe tobacco in the lobby and didn’t even realize that it was from one of the ghosts. Very interesting place.

      One of the rooms is very haunted. A friend stayed there and experienced it.

    I have been to this hotel many times and have had 2 paranormal experiences. Creepy place. But I absolutely love the place and the spa! I will be back many times to come.

    I have always liked this place, it has great food great staff and great rooms. I have stayed there three times I think, you have a lot of things to do get a massage, whirlpool, and eat at the greatest restaurant

    my wife and I stayed there on 7/7/07 pool front room, I was sitting by the pool and having a drink when my wife came back from exploring and said she a ghost walked throuh her on some steps. I didn’t believe her and she took and showed me where this happened claiming a woman in dress walked throuh her when she was coming down the stairs. the next day while checking out my wife told the clerk who went into a room and came back with a small box and showed us a picture of a woman standing on a stair landing which appeared to be the exact spot. needless to say this frealed us al out seeing the picture.
