Investigating the Old Wheeler Hotel

Our paranormal research team (Paranormal Research of Oregon Foundation) has just landed another investigation! I'm so excited. It will take place next Saturday evening at the Old Wheeler Hotel, a quaint little hotel on the Oregon Coast in Wheeler, Oregon. The hotel was a brothel and pool hall at the turn of the century before becoming a rheumatoid arthritis clinic in the 50's. I interviewed the owners last week and made reservations for our team yesterday! The spirits are said to be very friendly. In fact, in one room the spirit likes to give foot massages and caress your face. Yea, I booked myself in that room. LOL!

Old Wheeler Hotel today.

Circa 1914.

Circa 1950 when it was a rheumatoid arthritis clinic.

You can read more about the history here. I can't tell you how excited our group is. Katie, the current owner has been so accommodating with our group in preparation of our upcoming investigation. Thank you, Katie if you are seeing this post! She tells us it's a very spiritually active hotel with consistent feedback from guests on their "ghostly" experiences.

So this is what I'm doing Halloween weekend. What are you doing? :)

P.S. Okay, I know the song was cheesy but I just had to. ;)

I love the little town of Wheeler! I always stop for awhile, wander the antique shops, watch the fishing boats and get fresh boiled crab! Never thought about staying over night. I look forward to your story!

This hotel reminds me of the Hot Lake Hotel in Eastern Oregon. It used to be some kind of a medical facility as well. These hotels are so rich with history!
