THE OSCEOLA INN
THE LONGEST LIST OF THE LONGEST
STUFF AT THE LONGEST DOMAIN NAME AT LONG LAST
The story of the Osceola Inn in Reed City Michigan.
When Osceola Inn was first built
in 1881 by Daniel Oaks is was a wood frame hotel. He sold the Inn to the King
Brothers who used the Inn for the King Hotel and Saloon. The King Hotel and
Saloon burned to the ground in 1884. However, this did not stop these ambitious
brothers. They rebuilt the hotel, this time with three stories and using brick
instead of wood. They sold their hotel in the early 1900ís when it finally took
on the name of the Osceola Hotel. Once again, the hotel was sold and all other
buildings on the property, this time to Ray and Anita Rogalla, who now changed
the name to the Osceola Inn.
From the time of its creation, the Osceola Inn had
many guests. Several people enjoyed their stay and others died while enjoying
the peace and serenity of the area. Many have witnessed those that have refused
to live the Inn even after death knocked at their door. As a matter of fact if
you visit Osceola Inn at 110 E. Upton Ave in Reed City, Michigan you will signs
posted asking you to report any ghostly activity to the front desk.
Some of the things that guests have reported
include cold spots, voices, unexplained electrical abnormalities, noises and
bumps in the night, doors opening and shutting, the feel of someone else in the
room, and seeing someone just out of the corner of their eye that vanishes once
they turn their heads.
On the third floor of the Inn, this is where
Josephine and Andrew lived and strange sounds have been heard. As the story
goes, Andrew would beat Josephine and it seems he is still practicing his
Other ghosts include Peter on the second floor. He
was a gambler that was down on his luck and took his own life in the room.
Audrey loves the bar area on the first floor. She lived at one time in the hotel
with her children. She died of an unknown illness. Louisa is on the second
floor, where she fell to her death. Another unknown man died of a heart attack
while sleeping in a room on the second floor.
These are just a few of the ghosts that have
allowed guests to know they were present. Maybe you can find a few more when you
visit Osceola Inn.
