Here are some of the most haunted places in Phoenix!
Arizona is notorious for its wild-west type history filled with cowboys, Native Americans, and other caricatures that helped form the plotline for many movies and books. Of course, a rich history is often coupled with spirits and ghosts who persist, even as time moves on. Many buildings and areas in and around Phoenix are said to be haunted.
As Halloween approaches, our carpet cleaning company is beginning to anticipate the increase of paranormal activity around a few set of buildings in the Phoenix metro area. Spooky stories and haunted houses make Halloween an extra fun holiday. If you’re in the area, be sure to pass by these haunted areas and see if you could experience the ghostly present, yourself! Our carpet cleaners are too afraid to!
Glendale Pizza Hut
Imagine you’re sitting there, eating some pepperoni pizza and sipping on some soda. All of a sudden, the lights flicker, you look down, and a slice from the pie is missing! Either you just forgot that you ate an entire piece of pizza, or a ghostly entity who was craving some cheesy ‘za stole it. The Glendale Pizza Hut in Arizona is said to be extremely haunted. People have reported faucets turning on by themselves, babies crying, and children playing. If you’re in the mood for some spooky pizza this Halloween, our carpet cleaning company suggests dining at this spot. Be wary, though!
If you live in Phoenix, then you know about the infamous Rosson House. Its gothic, old architecture screams haunted. And, guess what—it is. The creepy house currently couples as a museum where you could sign up for a tour. The house was built at the end of the 19th century, but it wasn’t until 100 years later, when the caretaker was murdered outside of the home, that spooky things began happening. Now, visitors report hearing footsteps and strange noises. Some have even seen an apparition of the caretaker of the house. Now that’s one place Sweettouch would be scared to provide our floor cleaning services to!
Hotel San Carlos
When you’re on a vacation, the last thing that you want is somebody bugging you while you’re relaxing. Usually, the cause of the annoyance is some loud neighbors or construction across the street, not a ghost! Similar to the Rosson House, the Hotel San Carlos just looks ominous. Located in Phoenix, this creepy spot was built in 1927. The ghost who is said to haunt the San Carlos is a girl named Leone Jensen. Not too long after the hotel opened its doors, Jensen leaped from the roof of the hotel to her death. The reason? A broken heart. Now, her spirit is said to roam the halls. Guests have reported eerie sounds and objects falling off tables.
Casey Moore’s Oyster House
Just outside of Phoenix, in the city of Tempe, exists Casey Moore’s Oyster House. Early in the 1900’s, a couple, William and Mary Moure, built the building to be their home. William was a prominent figure in Phoenix as acted as a physician and the governor not too long after. The couple passed in the house, and their spirits are said to haunt the oyster house, albeit merrily. Several times, a couple has been seen through the windows, dancing inside the restaurant after hours. However, while William and Mary appear to be friendly, folks believe that there are more ominous spirits who also inhabit the building. Silverware has flown off tables, pictures have crashed down. Customers have locked eyes with a mysterious figure, only to blink and it disappear.
Nothing is quite as terrifying as the ghosts of children! Saguaro Boulevard, an area in Phoenix, is said to be haunted by the ghost of a young girl. In the beginning of the ‘80s, a little girl was kidnapped and gruesomely murdered. Today, passerby report hearing screams and crying, though the source is rarely found. As a commercial floor cleaner, we often shudder when we get a call from a business in that area. Sweettouch isn’t ashamed of being spooked by ghosts!
If you’re in the Phoenix and Peoria area, we expect you to be haunted by ghosts, not dirty floors! Contact us today for an appointment. We hope you have a happy Halloween!
