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
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?
