Charlotte has a vibrant culture and fascinating history. Between its diverse historic architecture, world-class museums, and fan-favorite sports teams, there’s no mystery when it comes to why so many people travel to this hub of Southern culture every year.
What Charlotteans aren’t as quick to mention, however, is the haunted history lying beneath the Queen City’s regal facade.
You’ll find some of this spooky past at the Barringer Hotel. It isn’t just any old resort for weary travelers passing through downtown Charlotte. Its ornate parlor and elegant dining hall also serve as a gateway to some of the most chilling and enthralling aspects of Charlotte’s haunted past.
Join US Ghost Adventures on a tour of haunted Charlotte and discover what has made it a focus of ghost lore for history buffs worldwide.
If you need a place to put up your feet or wish to glimpse some glamorous historical decor, the Barringer Hotel is a fitting stop for some historical reprieve.
Constructed in 1940 with all of the markers of the Art Deco style, the 12-story luxury hotel is near First Ward Park and many of Charlotte’s other cultural attractions. The hotel was initially built and operated by siblings Laurence and Flora Barringer as part of a chain of elegant resorts throughout the South.
Though it has since been converted to apartments and renamed Hall House, the Barringer Hotel remains one of the most architecturally stunning and prominent features of Charlotte’s skyline.
Since it opened its ornately designed doors, the Barringer Hotel has hosted elite travelers ranging from Hollywood stars to high-ranking politicians.
The list of those who have wined and dined here includes Elvis, Judy Garland, Gene Autry, and Richard Nixon. However, other guests who have checked in may have never checked out.
Residents and staff alike have reported mysterious occurrences for decades. Hotel staff attributes these sightings to the ghosts of travelers who have died tragically during their stay.
While passing through, perhaps you’ll see the ghost of an ill-fated banker or burgeoning star struck down at the start of their career.
No matter what your experience with the ghosts there, the luxurious Barringer Hotel promises to impress with its historical lore and decor alike.
