The Terrace Inn
The mission-style dining furniture remains in use, along with dressers in the guest rooms, mirrors, and commodes which were later replaced by private baths.
Ghosts have been seen, heard, and felt by several guests and employees. Documented records written by those people who chose to share their experience can be signed out at the front desk on request.
Many paranormal investigations have taken place here, and psychics, "sensitives" and others with extra sensory abilities have filled in the missing pieces of the spirits inhabiting the Inn. No worries, as no demonic presence or other negative experiences have been observed.
The first Terrace Inn was located on the current site but was a two story boarding house with a few rooms and kitchen. It was of the Victorian Cottage design and was replaced by the current hotel in 1910-1911. Used for housing staff while the New Inn was being built, it was eventually torn down, along with 3 cottages to make space for the 20,000 current building.
According to rumor, two workers were killed when a beam fell on them during the building process. The arts and crafts style replaced the earlier Victorian era, with straight beams, straightforward lines, and columns.
The furnishings were purchased from the Albert Pick company of Chicago, who also furnished hotels in Detroit and Chicago.
