It's no secret that I love anything old...Love the feel of these keys, how cool and heavy they are in my hand (bought a couple as souvenirs!). They still use skeleton keys at the Crescent Hotel in Eureka Springs, AR.
There were two or three weddings going on while we were here. The Crescent has a reputation as a haunted hotel....bodies piled in the morgue- casualties from an unlicensed doctor who operated a cancer hospital in the Crescent. Before that, it was a school for young girls. James says he was awakened by a young child's voice in his ear.
The door was off-kilter, I loved it! Doorknob in the middle of the door- why? Nothing built to square in this beautiful hotel. We drank beer as twilight came on, overlooking the mountains and the "Christ of the Ozarks" statue.
