Sauk Centre, Minnesota

The owner, employees and guests at Sauk Centre’s Palmer House Hotel have been plagued by a strange, debilitating and demonic energy – an energy that owner Kelly Freese believes originates in the hotel basement. This should come as no surprise to those who are familiar with the hotel’s history: The current hotel was built after the old Sauk Centre house burned to the ground, consuming many lives in the blaze. Check out the hotel’s website for the impressive laundry list of strange happenings at the hotel, including the sounds of children playing in the upstairs hallway, dramatic temperature drops, furniture re-arranging itself and items that seem to be thrown by an invisible force.
