I stayed at the Crescent November 2003 and 2004. We stayed in Theadora’s room. I went to turn the handle of the closet door and it was as bolt locked. Startled, I jumped back and laughed in a nervous way. That moment we heard the door click, I tried the door again and it opened with ease. I inspected the door. At one time it did have a lock, but it had been sealed with paint, impossible to lock. On that day it did.
Inspired by our 2003 trip we booked for the next year, and room 218. This room is known for unexplained activity, so we had to have it. We were dying for something to happen and nothing did, so we thought.
When we got our photos back we had several orb pics but in 218 we took a pic with a full figure standing in the mirror. The man is totally see-through, much detail, arms, hands, etc. Also what appears to be a long sleeve shirt that has been rolled up at the elbow, and perhaps overalls.
This is one of the most interesting “ghost” pictures I have ever seen, so we sent them the people whom run the ghost tours and hopefully you will soon see them on their site.
By the way, the hotel is great, the staff is great, what a wonderful piece of history, and I know some of that history has remained behind.
The ghost tours are wonderful and the people connected to them are very nice, the tour is worth every penny. I have taken it 3 times and will take it again when we return for our November 2005 trip.
