California Haunts checks out Cary House

There are some places that people like so much that they just can’t seem to leave. The Cary House Hotel on Main Street seems to be one of those places.

Built in 1847 by William Cary, the hotel, located at 300 Main St., served not only those passing through Placerville but miners as well. In 1856, the hotel burned down and was replaced by a three-story brick building. In the 1900s a fourth floor was added. And a rarity for Gold Rush era hotel has an elevator that was added in 1926.

For those who enjoy great ambiance and elegance, the Cary House is for you. Just one step through its door and you are taken back in time. The woodwork and the stained glass in the lobby are eye-catching.

But, for many who stay there, there is much more than meets the eye.

Employees and visitors over the years have reported strange occurrences…
