The Ghosts of the Rawls Hotel
It is my hope to travel down to the Rawls some time in the next several months to learn more about the ghosts that are said to linger in its halls. The stories say that there are many children ghosts in the old hotel, but I don't know where they come from. None of the stories seem to explain the presence of so many children ghosts in the hotel. There is a little girl who has been seen by many visitors and the voices of children are said to come from the wine cellar. Orbs are frequently seen in photographs and visitors describe feeling a presence in the hotel.
Mr. Rawls is also said to haunt this old hotel and many have described seeing him in the halls. He is said to stand by and watch decoration and renovation of the building and his spirit is thought to be interested in the well being of the hotel. Many of the apparitions of the Rawls are said to linger on the third and forth floor. The Rawls is listed as one of the most haunted hotels in Alabama. Hopefully, I will discover why some day in the near future.
