Ghost Month: Hotel Del Coronado and the Mystery of Lottie A. Bernard

May is Ghost Month here at the Midnight Society! I love ghosts stories more than a person should. Normally if I talk to someone for more than thirty minutes, I can be found asking if they know any good ghost stories. It's the truth and the rest of the Midnight Society can attest to that! The story I'm here to tell you today is true, and it's a story of murder, heartbreak, and a mystery that still haunts the Hotel Del Coronado today.   On Thanksgiving day in 1892, a beautiful woman checked into the Hotel Del Coronado. She never checked out. The Hote[...]

And what  I love even more than that, is when said scary and creepy story is real. The following story I read one night on Reddit, and it was creepy. I knew it was good because as I read it, goosebumps crawled up my arms. Then, later that night, after I read it and I was home alone, I wanted to read it again. And again. Because it had stuck with me. I found myself wondering what I would do in the same situation. Then[...]
