VILLA THERESA GUEST HOUSE
LONGEST LIST OF THE LONGEST STUFF AT THE LONGEST DOMAIN NAME AT LONG
The story of Villa Theresa guest house.
The Villa Theresa
Guest House is located at 801 Almond Street in Hot Springs, South
This beautiful house sits atop a large
hill that has a magnificent view of the town of Hot Springs along
with a majestic view of the black hills area.
This 5,000 square foot home has 20
rooms and was the creation of developer Fred T. Evans in 1891. His
idea was to have a place for the rich and famous to enjoy the hot
springs near-by, gambling, and of course the company of a few ladies
of the evening.
In 1916, a mansion was built on the
property close by and in 1925 the Villa Theresa was purchased by the
owners that built the mansion nearby in 1916. The Guest House has
always been a place for travelers to stay whether a hotel type
building or bed and breakfast.
The Akhtar family purchase the guest
house in 1974 and called it home until the 1980’s. They were not
really comfortable in their new home at least for the first two
years, as they could feel that someone or something did not desire
As for ghosts, yes, Villa Theresa Guest
House has a few spirits roaming around. A beautiful woman has been
seen descending the stairs in a long, turn of the century evening
gown that had a thin, lacy ruffle on its bodice.
Another ghost, a male, would hide behind a railing near by one of
the rooms that once was the home to prostitutes. He was not happy
and would stare you straight in the eyes as if he wanted you gone.
This apparition looked more like an old black and white photo, but
was real enough when he stared you down.
Fighting Ghosts? Yes, on the stair
case. A man and woman in an argument when all of a sudden the lady
grabs the man by the hair, he picks up the woman and throws her over
the railing. The woman was wearing a 50's style, full poodle skirt,
and white, roll-down socks. The story is that a maid that worked
here during the fifties disappeared without a trace.
These are just a few of the strange
occurrences and ghosts that haunt Villa Theresa Guest House. Plan a
visit and see what you might learn.
