It's the most famous haunted hotel in all of Oklahoma, maybe even the Nation. Have you ever heard of the Skirvin Hotel in Oklahoma City, OK? It's the oldest hotel in OKC and has been listed as a historic landmark by both the Historic Hotel of America and the National Trust for Historic Preservation.

The hotel was originally built back in 1911 and is now over 110 years old. It's been reported numerous times throughout the years that it's haunted.

So when did all the paranormal activity start and what are the stories? The hotel got its name from its original owner and builder William Skirvin. The story goes that Mr. Skirvin was inappropriately involved with a hotel maid who got pregnant. To avoid all the controversy since he was a married man he locked the maid named "Effie" in a room on the 10th floor. She was a prisoner even after her child was born and was never allowed to leave the room she was locked in. The only means of escape Effie thought she had was to leap out of the 10th story window along with her baby, killing themselves. A tragic story, that turned into a ghost story.

I've never had the opportunity to stay at the Skirvin Hotel, but I've had friends and family who have. Most tell of hearing strange noises and seeing objects move by themselves. Some have even said they saw a female ghost wandering the halls and heard slamming doors, glass breaking, and a woman and child crying.

These types of experiences have been reported by numerous people throughout the years. Even some NBA superstars who have stayed at the Skirvin while in OKC to take on the Thunder. A lot of them said they wouldn't stay there again due to the haunting. More than one person has left early during their stay.

There have been books written about all the strange happenings at the Skirvin and we could be seeing a movie sometime soon that details the history and ghost stories of the hotel. Most of the activity occurs on the 10th floor where the rumored suicide of Effie and her baby took place. The 10th floor was also a popular place back in the old days for gambling, drinking, and other nefarious, not to mention illegal activity.
