HAUNTED MICHIGAN: Apparitions of The Anchor Inn, Houghton Lake
Another of Michigan’s Most Haunted is the Anchor Inn at Houghton Lake. A former old inn that was transformed into a brothel many years ago, still stands and seems to have a grip on some of the souls of past visitors. It's regarded as one of the top haunted places in Michigan (SEE PHOTO GALLERY ABOVE).
The Anchor Inn celebrates it's haunted history with it's annual "haunted hotel" Halloween attraction; it also welcomes legitimate paranormal investigations, private tours and ghost hunts.
Many people have witnessed lots of spooky, paranormal happenings there, every decade since the 1940’s.
According to the owners, “We have everything from full body apparitions, shadow figures, orbs, mists, objects moving, foot steps, voices, doors slamming, faucets on/off, electrical disturbances, people being touched, etc…..we have been visited by numerous paranormal investigators, whom have collected a lot of eyewitness accounts, photos, EVP’s like crazy & other evidence. There is also said to be a vortex in front of our building to the other side. Most all who visit & investigate get evidence or have experiences of the paranormal kind.”
Management believes the above-mentioned portal in the street leads to the Netherworld and vice versa. It's a spot where two lines of energy connect and form a passageway to the spirit world, with some of the spirits of centuries-dead Native Americans coming through and making themselves home at the Inn.
Upon investigating, the EVP (electronic voice phenomenon) results revealed so many ethereal voices emanating from this portal, that it resembled the sound you hear like that of the people in a crowded airport.
And, to top it off, legend says that the place was a favorite hangout of Al Capone and the Purple Gang.
