About Us

The Crescent Hotel was designed in 1886 by Isaac L. Taylor, an architect. It ran as a hotel for several years until it no longer had the finances to do so. In 1908, the hotel was opened again as a school and was then called the Crescent College and Conservatory for Young Women. Again, it could not afford to stay open for financial reasons and closed again in 1924.
It reopened in 1930 until 1934 as a junior college. After the school closed, it was leased as a summer hotel. In 1937, Norman Baker bought the property and made it into a place for people suffering from cancer. Because of fraud allegations and federal charges, Norman Baker was imprisoned for four years and The Crescent Hotel was left without an owner.
The Crescent Hotel in Eureka Springs is one place which is frequented by several ghosts. Staff members have been receiving a lot of reports from guests of strange occurrences in their room. Room 202 is the room where a ghost was photographed in. In room 218, guests have reported strange sounds, sensations, and even full bodied apparitions. Doors have slammed shut by themselves and people have been awakened at night. It is reported that Room 218 was the location of a strange death. One of the builders (Michael, an Irish stonemason) of the hotel fell from the roof during construction in 1885. He landed and died on the spot where room 218 was built.
The lobby and the halls are not exempt from these ghosts. People have reported seeing a middle aged man with a moustache sitting in the lobby and sometimes in the bar area. He only sits quietly and then suddenly vanishes. Back in 1987, a guest claimed they saw a nurse pushing a gurney down the hallway in the middle of the night. After reaching the wall, the nurse suddenly vanished. Other guests have reported seeing Norman Baker, the one-time owner who cruelly fooled so many cancer patients in to thinking he had a cure.
