The Morse Mill Hotel is a hotbed of paranormal activity with a rich historic past dating back to 1816.

The Morse Mill Hotel, located in Jefferson County, MO is full of history, as well as some mystery. The building was constructed in 1816 as a farm house while the area was still ruled by the Spanish under Louisiana Territory. John H. Morse purchased it in 1856 and added on making it the structure that it is today. Mr. Morse was a Bridge Engineer, Confederate sympathizer, among other things. Built of Maple, Oak, Cypress and Limestone . The structure is 4 stories tall. 5,300 sq. ft.In front of the Hotel still sits the Stone Wall which was built by freed Slaves, hand carved before electricity existed. It once encircled the building. The previous owners gave away pieces, that now sit on the properties of several neighbors in their yards.

The hotel heyday was during the 1920’s and 1930’s. The elite of St. Louis visited often. It was a close weekend getaway to escape the sweltering summers in St Louis. Other guests came from all over the world including Africa, Switzerland, Cuba, Philippines Islands, Bombay India, London England, Berlin Germany, Austria and Hong Kong China. One of my personal favorites marked in the register is Saturday, September 5th, 1931 Zarna and her trained seal Suzanne. The famous guests include black and white film star Clara Bow, Betty Boop was created in her likeness. Tom Mix, a black and white cowboy film star. Pilot Charles Lindbergh and gangster Al Capone also marked their stay here.

This 4 story building is in the final stages of being renovated. The work we are doing, has escalated the activity, especially "physical contact". Those that investigate the Para-normal have experienced many unique events. We consistently when entering day or night hear, see or feel things that have no logical explanation. For years people have said, they sense nothing evil but something just moved in front of me or touched me. Hearing footsteps is my personal favorite. When I walk in, turn off the alarm and hear footsteps across the upper floor I now just go about my business. If you want first hand experience, truly wish to know…….45 minutes SW of St. Louis is your answer. It will rewrite your perspective. If you don't wish to meet the spirit world, you best not stay long. Bring a flashlight, and lot's of bravery you may need it to keep from running. Funny thing, you will not out run them! The spirits can move in a blink of eye, thru floors, up walls, down the hall.
