A Ghost in the Fort Worth Stockyards

A B&B located in the stockyards of Fort Worth, Texas, is the location of quite a bit of supernatural activity.

Miss Molly's Hotel Bed and Breakfast, 109 1/2 W. Exchange Ave., Fort Worth, TX 76106

Miss Molly's is an historic, 8-room hotel operating in the bed-and-breakfast tradition. It's in the Stockyards section of Fort Worth, on the second floor of a building originally constructed in 1910. The inn features shutters, lace curtains, iron beds, antique quilts and oak furniture in every room.The building, which transformed from a boarding house into a bordello in its pre-B&B days, is alleged to host a few ghosts.

As befits a former bordello, the supposed spirit visitors at Miss Molly's are often reported to be attractive young women who materialize at the foot of guests' beds. The Cowboy's and Cattlemen's rooms are alleged to be the places to stay to have the best chance of encountering something supernatural.

Located in the middle of the Fort Worth Stockyards, Miss Molly's is the oldest Bed and Breakfast in Fort Worth. Established as a boarding house in 1910 and called the Palace Rooms, it went through the prohibition period being called The Oasis and later as a Bordello in the 1940s when it was called the Gayatte Hotel. Miss Molly's is just old enough to have caught a glimpse of the Wild West and all of the time period of America's speak-easy and bordello days. Its long history as a boarding house has included a vast number of residents. Apparently, some have decided to extend their stay. Perhaps the large amount of antiques and period pieces in the hotel remind them of the bawdy times that they shared there.

The eight themed rooms in the hotel all share stories of paranormal activity, with the Cattlemen's and Cowboy rooms having some of the more famous sightings of apparitions. Visitations have also occurred in the current owner's private rooms number eight and nine of a young girl, who is considered a former tenant of the hotel. Most of the sightings have involved the former working girls from the hotel's days as a bordello.

The phenomena at Miss Molly's includes full bodied apparitions, unexplained scents, items disappearing and reappearing, toilets flushing on their own, lights turning on and off, cold spots, unlocked doors refusing to open, and a variety of unidentified but entertaining sounds. According to the current owner, one housekeeper quit because she kept finding coins in rooms even though there had been no guests in that room and she had just finished cleaning only to return and find the coins where she had just cleaned.

Miss Molly's has been visited by a number of paranormal investigation groups and is listed with Texas Christian University's paranormal activity class, which makes regular visits to record the phenomena. Copies of unusual photos and tape recordings, as well as statements of the investigators and results are kept prominently in the common living area.

The hotel situated above Fort Worth's Star Café takes visitors up a staircase to another era, period furnishings, furniture, and a number of stories about unexplained happenings provided with first hand accounts by the owner. Miss Molly's is considered one of the most haunted properties in Fort Worth and one of the most active paranormal sites in Texas.
