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

The story of the Goldfield Hotel.

In Goldfield, Nevada there is a place which psychics say is one of seven existing portals to the other side. It is here, at The Goldfield Hotel, where one terrible thing would happen that would forever change the corridors and one room in particular, Room 109. The hotel was built in 1908 and was considered to be one of the most beautiful and luxurious hotels in Nevada at the time. It was said to have grand mahogany panels, black leather furniture, and champagne that could be found anywhere and was always flowing.

After the hotel was built, it was sold and purchased by George Winfield, who was a very prominent figure and considered to be a great businessman with many political, financial, and otherwise powerful connections. Shortly after he made his large purchase, Winfield started to have a romance with a prostitute. Due to his standing in the community and the career in which she made her living, Winfield wanted the affair to be kept secret. Imagine his surprise then, when the prostitute became pregnant! Whether or not George Winfield continued on with the affair is not known but it can be told that the prostitute tried desperately hard to remain a part of her lover’s life as she ended up in Room 109 chained to the radiator. She was already very far along in her pregnancy and although it’s thought that Winfield himself put her up there, that story has never been proven. She remained there until she gave birth to her baby, whom moments after its birth was ripped from its mother’s hands to be thrown down the chute that was the way to the abandoned gold mine that the hotel had been built upon. It’s also unknown whether the prostitute was murdered after having her baby taken away from her or whether she was simply left to die but she did in fact die in Room 109.

The town of Goldfield is now a near ghost town but the buildings, including the hotel, are still owned by private owners and some have plans for restoration. There are currently plans to renovate the Goldfield Hotel, or at least do something with the property, as it was recently purchased but in the meantime, it is a tourist attraction just like all the other buildings in the abandoned town. Many tourists have often said they have found that while taking pictures throughout the building, Room 109 was the only room in which their cameras would not work. Psychics have also investigated the room and found that there was paranormal activity there and that in particular, a woman with long, flowing hair could be seen floating near the ceiling. Perhaps the owner, George Winfield, has a guilty conscience as his spirit can also often be felt around the building. It is in the George Winfield Room that guests have often remarked that they thought they saw his shadow in the room and there are also often fresh ashes found with the smell of fresh cigar smoke. His spirit can also be felt around the giant staircase and so can those of two small children.
