ILLINOIS: DeSoto House Hotel, Galena


A secret doorway used in the 1880s but hidden until 2011 is now on display at the DeSoto House Hotel in Galena, Illinois.

The doorway was uncovered when the hotel staff was repairing flood damages, and the spot became notorious for ghost sightings. A plaque in the hotel describes a “lady in black” who allegedly haunts the doorway.
