Haunted Inns Across The Country

USA Today ran an article on 10 great places to sleep with ghosts. A few in the list were familiar, but many others I hadn't really heard of before--or at least I'd forgotten their tales.

Featherbed Railroad B&B Resort in Nice, CA--A railroad worker haunts this unusual resort comprised of nine furnished cabooses.
Red Garter B&B in Williams, AZ--A bar and bordello until the 40s, Red Garter is home to Eve, a former "worker" who still touches the guests.
1906 Pine Crest Inn in Tryon, NC--Some claim a psychic vortex can be found here and furniture has been reported to have moved on its own, even blocking a guest's door with a dresser.
Penny House Inn in Eastham, MA--17th century sea captain and a woman named Charlotte make appearances.
John Denham House in Monticello, FL--130 year old inn hosts ghost hunting weekends.
Black Horse Inn in Warrenton, VA--Former Civil War hospital haunted by a laughing nurse.
Magnolia Mansion in New Orleans, LA--Things move about in the rooms at night.

Colonel Taylor Inn B&B in Cambridge, OH--Congressman and Civil War vet, Joseph D. Taylor haunts the old house where beds rock by themselves.
