The Spirits of the Grand Midway Hotel, Part One | Guest, Blair Murphy

Blair Murphy was working in LA as an independent filmmaker when a unique opportunity was presented to him. He and some friends wanted to find someplace to move to for about a year when they discovered a hotel on eBay for $11,000. It was the Grand Midway Hotel. Despite never stepping foot in the town of Windber, Pennsylvania, let alone stepping foot into the hotel, they purchased it. 

The Grand Midway Hotel, though no longer operational as a hotel, is still inhabited by guests – numerous ghostly guests, including Martha, a young woman who met her untimely demise on the hotel’s balcony while watching fireworks on the 4th of July. Legend has it that a rocket struck her neck, claiming her life instantly. Additionally, the hotel’s bar was the site of an unsolved murder, human bones were discovered within its walls, and there is also the story of a child buried in the basement.

Adding to its mystique, the Grand Midway Hotel boasts two Guinness Book of World Records for the largest Ouija Board on its rooftop and the world’s largest Tarot Card painted on the ceiling.
