The Jerome Grand Hotel in Arizona:
Built as a hospital in 1926, the now Jerome Grand Hotel is probably one of the most active haunted places. The ghost sightings started in the 1930's with the nurses working at the hospital saying "You'll see him", "We call him Clyde or Scotty". The hospital closed in 1950 and for the next 44 years, the stories of ghost sightings, spirit orbs, paranormal and supernatural activities continued. Renovated into the Jerome Grand Hotel in 1994, the reputation of the old hospital and the ghost sightings continued. The current owners did not want a haunted house or a haunted hotel. They played down the fact that certain guests saw ghost sightings and captured pictures of supernatural orbs. Guests would constantly tell the employees "Do you know this place is haunted?" Jerome being known as Arizona's largest ghost town, the owners said "If the guests want a haunted hotel, then let them have it." The ghosts seem positive and everyone seems to have fun with the hauntings.

Arizona's Largest Ghost Town:
From 15,000 to less than 100, by the 1950's, Jerome became Arizona's largest ghost town. Why a ghost town became associated with hauntings is unclear, but Jerome's reputation for its haunted houses and haunted places is surpassed by none. Jerome itself is probably one of the 10 most haunted places in America. It includes more than one haunted hotel, but only the Jerome Grand Hotel was the original haunted hospital.
