Red Garter Bed & Bakery


The story of the Red Garter Bed & Bakery.

The Red Garter Bed and Bakery in Williams, Arizona has had many faces since she was built in 1897 from a saloon, to a bordello, to a rooming house, a general store and more until the present where it is now a bed and bakery.

When it was first built in 1897 by August Tetzlaff, the saloon was on the lower floor and a brothel on the second floor. Two rooms in the rear of the building was the home to Chinese railroad workers who not only lived in the rooms but also began to operate a chophouse and an opium den. Of course, there were always rumors of murders but no bodies were ever found.

Logino Mora was the saloon operator and he was a famous US Calvary Scout that was famous for his heroism, however, in the town of Williams he became famous as a Ladyís Man. Throughout his life he had five wives and 25 children. When his youngest child was born, his oldest child was 60 years old! No wonder he was famous.

After prostitution was outlawed in 1907, the saloon needed a face-lift, but the saloon and bordello were still thriving secretly until the 1940ís. However, a murder was committed and the law began to crack down even more against these establishments. After 40 years in operation, the saloon and brothel were closed down. The saloon began to get many face-lifts and held several different types of businesses until 1979 when John Holst bought the building.

The saloon and brothel was transformed into a unique bed and bakery, however, many guests began to talk of the ghost and unusual happenings in their rooms and other locations around the bed and breakfast. Footsteps were hears, doors would slam, and weird clunking noises were often heard in many locations throughout the bed and bakery.

Some guests reported seeing the ghost of a young Hispanic girl with long dark hair wearing a white nightgown. One ghost even stated they had talked with her and her name was Eva or Eve.

Who may be causing the hauntings at the Red Garter Bed & Bakery? Could they be the ghosts of those murdered in the chophouse or others that died in the saloon?
