Five Hotels Haunted by Celebrity Ghosts

I recently returned from a trip to my favourite city, San Francisco. I particularly love the hippy neighborhood the Haight. I like to spend time there with the spirits of Janis Joplin, Jerry Garcia and Jimi Hendrix. I was interested to then see this video about hotels haunted by celebrity ghosts, among them the hotel in Los Angeles where Joplin lost her life to a drug overdose.

The Ghost of Peggy Cove

Peggy Cove in Nova Scotia, Canada, is home to a grieving ghost:

“The site of the famous Peggy’s Point Lighthouse in Nova Scotia is said to be haunted by the ghost of a woman who took her own life in 1800. According to legend, the woman—whose name was Margaret—was the survivor of a shipwreck that killed her children, and, in her grief, would often wander the rocks at the edge of the sea.

“One day her husband, in an attempt to cheer her up, was dancing on the rocks, slipped, and suffered a fatal head wound. Shortly after his death, she took her own life by jumping into the sea at the spot where he died. Today, there are reports of a mysterious lady in blue who looks poised to jump into the sea. When someone tries to help, she disappears.”
