EFFIE
THE LONGEST LIST OF THE LONGEST STUFF AT THE LONGEST DOMAIN NAME AT LONG LAST

The story of Effie.

At this time, the Skirvin Hotel in Oklahoma City is under renovation. However, during its time, it was the grandest of hotels in all of Oklahoma. The unique and beautiful hotel was opened in 1911 with two, 10-story towers and in the lobby were featured imported Austrian chandeliers with a price tag of $10,000 per chandelier. W.B. Skirvin had built the dream hotel, and his daughter Perl Mesta gave it international attention by being the ambassadress to Luxemburg. In 1930, another wing was added which raised the hotel to 14 stories. Yes, it does have a thirteenth floor, but that is not where the ghosts appear.

Many guests, especially men have had trouble with “Effie”. “Effie” fondly named by employees at a later date, since no one really knows the name of W.B. Skirvin’s mistress during prohibition in the 1930’s. As the tale goes, Mr. Skirvin had an affair with a one of his maids at the hotel. The maid became pregnant and Mr. Skirvin locked her away on the top floor of the hotel. She was very depressed and could barely stand being locked away until after the birth of her child. However, the imprisonment did not end after the birth of her baby and no one knows the exact amount of time this poor girl and her baby were held captive before she could no longer handle the loneliness and jumped from the 14th floor window with the baby in her arms.

Guests at the hotel prior to its closing have reported hearing a child crying, hearing a female voice proposition them, see the image of a naked women in the shower with them, strange noises and maid carts moving down the hall unattended.

When the renovation is complete and the Skirvin is once again open for business, do you think Effie will make her appearance?
