Christmas at the Crescent

“Christmas At The Crescent” Has
Become Eureka Springs Tradition

Christmastime at this Historic Hotel of America has become one of The Ozarks region’s most popular winter holiday traditions. Part of that tradition is the Christmas at the Crescent”. This year’s yuletide celebration at this mountaintop spa resort runs from December 6 through December 14 here at 75 Prospect Avenue on the Historic Loop. It is all part of the full, nearly month-long calendar of seasonal events planned here at one of America’s Dozen Distinctive Destinations.
“When we first started this annual event 14 years ago it consisted of a live Nativity scene, wonderful decorations, Santa’s Brunch and free holiday movies for our guests,” said hotel General Manager and Vice-President of Operations Jack Moyer. “The crowds were small that year but everyone who attended had a great time. So much so, it encouraged us to expand our holiday decorations at the property and build up events during this week not only for our hotel but to also impact the holiday season for the entire community of Eureka Springs.”
One such community-wide event is the Lighting of the Christmas Forest on Saturday, December 6 at 6 p.m. More than 30 trees will adorn the holiday focal point of the hotel’s nearly 15 acres, The East Lawn. Each tree will be uniquely decorated one to the other since each tree represents a different local and area charity.
“Not only is our Christmas Forest a sparkling sight to behold, visitors to the forest can ‘vote’ for their favorite tree. At the end of the ‘election’ on December 31, each tree’s ‘votes’ will be donated to that charity. Additionally, the top three vote-getters also receive a nice cash prize donated from the hotel,” explained Moyer.
Santa arrives at the hotel on Sunday, December 7 when he is the star attraction at Santa’s Brunch. The two elements that guests are suggested to bring to this feast of holiday culinary delights are a large appetite and a camera. While eating to their hearts’ delight guests also getting a chance to sit on Ol’ Saint Nick’s lap for a chance to capture a photographic lifetime memory. Santa has been known to balance an entire family on his red velvet knees for that just right shot. Brunch is served from 9:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. while Santa will be poised for photo ops from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Each weekday, the hotel’s activity department creates a festive to do, while at noon during this special holiday week, the hotel’s Crystal Ballroom swings open its doors for hungry patrons and school groups ready to perform for those enjoying a mid-day repast. Bands and choirs from local area middle and high schools present medleys of festive tunes that always bring back happy holiday memories from years gone by.
For those holiday travelers who long to return to the 19th century and the days of Charles Dickens, the Eureka Springs Readers Theater troupe presents a rousing adaptation of “A Christmas Carol” following a Dickensian-themed feast. This “Holiday Feast with Charles Dickens” is a Tuesday night affair, held December 9th in the hotel’s Crystal Ballroom. Reservations are recommended since seating is limited. Dinner is served at 6 p.m. followed by the performance.
Thursday night, December 11th will utilize that same hotel venue but this time it will be filled with the polished holiday musical stylings of The Ozarks Chorale, a popular vocal ensemble that has performed in New York City’s prestigious Carnegie Hall. A dinnertime concert entitled “Sounds of the Season” is planned at 6:30 p.m. as the executive chef offers up its special “Tastes of The Holidays” menu accompanied by one of the largest wine cellars in the state. Reservations are not required.
“One great outcropping from our hotel’s annual event has been the evolution of the community pulling together to expand Christmas lighting throughout the town as well as make this week and the days surrounding it a true Christmas festival,” added Moyer.
Under the sponsorship of such organizations as Eureka Springs Downtown Network and the Greater Eureka Springs Chamber of Commerce, such delightful holiday events as the night-time Downtown Christmas Parade, Santa In The Park, Preservation Tour of Homes and festive shopping enhancements make historic Downtown Eureka Springs a winter wonderland.
“The Christmas season has become huge here in Eureka,” Moyer said. “Starting with Christmas parade Friday December 5th and continuing through Christmas at the Crescent and the Sweet Treats Christmas Tour the first two weeks of December are filled with holiday spirit and events. So many in fact this two-week celebration is now known as the ‘EurekaSprings.com Christmas Festival’.”
“Our ‘Christmas at The Crescent’ this year will allow our guests to ‘Live The Legend’ here at our hotel, the symbol of Arkansas hospitality since 1886,” concluded Moyer.

Halloween Night-Dr. Baker’s Experiments

1886 Crescent Hotel Becomes More “Intriguing” On Halloween Night

 

As if the 1886 Crescent Hotel & Spa wasn’t intriguing enough on Halloween, Sean-Paul and Juliane Fay, the headliners of Intrigue Theater, will return for the third consecutive year to this historic hotel’s Crystal Ballroom on October 31.  The 2-hour performance begins at 10:00 p.m. with seating at 9:30 p.m.
            This special performance opens with nationally acclaimed illusionist Sean-Paul opening his antiquarian doctor’s bag and sharing some of the newest mysteries from Intrigue Theater.  This will be followed by Juliane Fay, a medium of highly respected repute, who will call upon the energies of the spirits said to be residing in the hotel during a séance.  Randomly selected members of the audience will be invited to the stage and a seat at the séance table to assist in reaching back to and communicating with “those who have crossed over”.
            Intrigue Theater has created a new segment based on the disturbing accounts of  Norman Baker performing autopsies in the Morgue. Sean-Paul will extract tumors from an audience member with his bare hands using only Hypnosis  to eliminate the sense of pain.  This will be a one time performance to offer glimpse into what might have happened in the basement of the Crescent during its days as a Cancer Hospital.  It will only be performed on HALLOWEEN NIGHT – at the Haunted Crescent Hotel.
           This a once-a-year performance has completely sold out by early October in years past, so those interested in attending should secure tickets early.  It is an adjunct to the numerous Crescent Hotel ghost tours that will be conducted day and night on Halloween.

The 1886 Crescent Hotel & Spa is a proud member of Historic Hotels of America.  The hotel is located at 75 Prospect Avenue on Eureka Springs’ Historic Loop.

Haunting Ghost Experiences Revealed

Every night of the year, dozens of different people wind their way down the hallways and open, serpentine staircases of the five-story 1886 Crescent Hotel & Spa, “America’s Most Haunted Hotel”.  Final destination: the hotel’s  “morgue”.  They just know they are strolling amidst what some would say are hundreds of spirits who still frequent this Historic Hotel of America located here atop Crescent Mountain.  Each tour patron is eager to see something, feel something, smell something that they would categorize as a ghostlike experience enabling them to share that close encounter with their world.  However, several of those strolling along those same paranormal chGhostBldg_circa1890pathways have been there before, every night of the year.  These are the stalwart souls known as the Crescent Hotel Ghost Tour Guides.

“From smelling mysterious pipe tobacco to seeing an orb entering a boy’s skull, our (ghost tour) guides are exposed nightly to the hotel’s ‘guests who check out but never leave’,” said Keith Scales, director of the hotel’s ghost tour department.  “With that said, each has not only a unique ‘nom de guide’ but a special supernatural experience of their own to tell.  It is their raison d’être for being a tour guide in this world-famous haunted hotel.”

Aunt Reba had always admired the Crescent since moving to Eureka Springs and had her first unexplainable happening while exploring the hotel as a tourist.  The smell of cherry pipe tobacco got her attention when she reached the second floor.  She did not find out until two years later during her training to be a guide that her earlier encounter with that tobacco essence had probably emanated from one of the Crescent’s more illustrious spirits, the hotel’s in-house doctor circa late nineteenth century.  Dr. John Freemont Ellis, whose office was in what is now Room 212, was known for being a heavy pipe smoker of cherry tobacco.

Since then she says that she has detected “that charming aroma” occasionally, both while alone and while leading a ghost tour.  The most bizarre sensing, she explained, came during a recent tour of 24 people,  “We all simultaneously experienced that olfactory sensation for well over a minute.  And let it be understood that our entire hotel is a ‘no smoking’ property and has been for years.”

Duchess Debra, who gives tours and performs in a two-person paranormal play, Not Really A Door, at the hotel on Friday and Saturday nights, was on stage with her co-star during a recent performance.  One scene in the play has the two actors delivering the line “Ghost!” simultaneously.  At that exact point in time, four books used as props on a shelf went flying out toward the audience “as if someone -or something- had tossed them like a Frisbee”.  The books hit no one; however, the unpredictable, unexplainable occurrence got everyone’s attention.

Sweet Lady Sandra had one woman excitedly announce during a tour that she “clearly saw” and “emphatically heard” a man with a buzz-cut hairstyle say the words, “What about my treatment?”  Two others on that same tour said they saw in their peripheral vision a blurred figure of a man go by in that same vicinity at that same moment.

Miss Katherine was standing at the very bottom of the hotel’s open staircase with her tour group pausing before they entered the zigzagging trail to the morgue.  While all were standing still, Katherine experienced a chill causing her to “grow goose bumps” and then momentarily she found it hard to breathe.  The two ladies standing next to her turned pale and quickly asked, “Did anyone feel that?  It’s the little girl.  She is here.  I can feel her!”  They were referring to the story of the little girl that reportedly fell to her death from the fourth floor railing sometime during the early years of hotel operations.  Where she supposedly landed was the exact spot where the tour group was standing during the literal chilling experience.

To add to this story, one man said, “Oh, my.  Look at this photo!”, a photo he had just taken prior to the ladies’ verbal declaration.  He passed his camera around and clearly everyone could see a foggy mist in the shape of a little girl standing right next to the three women.  Unfortunately he did not submit the image to the hotel’s paranormal website AmericasMostHauntedHotel.com as he said he would and as many do when they capture an apparition on a digital device.

Major Tom had a man and wife on a recent tour that had differing attitudes about the plausibility of the paranormal.  She believed in the phenomena; he did not.  The husband said nothing during the entire tour, giving off negative body language throughout.  This was about to change.

As part of the tours’ conclusion in the morgue the lights are turned off.  Guests, standing next to the autopsy table and the walk-in cooler that once stored cadavers and body parts during the cancer “curing” hospital days of the building, are encouraged to take digital photos to see if they could catch the image of an orb, the “energy essence of a ghost”.  While Major Tom’s back was turned, a frightful scream was heard and all witnessed the skeptic running out of the morgue.  The lights were quickly turned back on and the ashen gentleman was invited back into the room whereupon he meekly confessed he had seen an orb with his naked eye as it flew between his face and his camera.  Result: the non-believer had become a believer and his wife had a great story to tell friends and family once they got back home.

Willow also had a strange morgue experience.  Each guide carries an EMF (electromagnetic field) meter during the tour to detect any electrical emissions that might be given out by a nearby spirit.  Reacting to one lady saying she sensed that this one certain spot on the morgue’s floor was energy filled, Willow laid her meter down on that spot.  As the entire tour witnessed, the meter went crazy beeping and flashing.  To follow up, Willow asked, “If there is indeed a spirit in this room, please make the meter slow down.”  It slowed down immediately.  After moments of heartbeat-like pulses, the spirit was asked to speed the meter back up; it did for a few more moments then went dormant.

But perhaps the most macabre-lite morgue story happened during one of Marshal John Law’s spooky sojourns through the hotel.  At the very end of the tour, after the lights come up in the morgue, the guide usually asks if anyone would like to enter the morgue’s infamous walk-in cooler and have the door shut behind them leaving them in total darkness.  Only two brave souls stepped up, a mother with a video camera and her 12-year-old son with a look of cautious zeal on his face.  They stepped into the space that had housed hundreds of dead bodies and innumerable severed body parts during the hotel’s hospital days and the door was closed behind them.  After about thirty seconds the door was opened and the boy, looking ill, staggered out from the cooler with his mother saying, “Please, move.  My son is getting sick.”

The lad plopped into one of the two chairs always kept near the entrance of the morgue for just such occurrences since ever so often someone will feel faint or ill from their time spent in a room where time had ended for so many during the three years a charlatan killed rather than cured unsuspecting cancer patients.  Once the mother was assured her son was okay and with the whole tour group watching, she announced, “You have to see this!”  At which time she played the video she had captured in the closed, darkened cooler.

The video showed an occasional glint of colored light coming from a dot high over her son’s head illuminating his face just enough for brief recognition.  One such dot did not fade like the others but began swinging back and forth.  As this light did begin to fade, a larger, brighter, white light, “as bright as a camera flash”, appeared and continued to glow just above her son’s head.  It slowly descended and disappeared as if it were entering his head only to suddenly reappear seemingly escaping from the boy’s skull just a nanosecond before the door opened allowing the boy to make his quick and queasy exit.

“Something as bizarre as these stories does not happen every night on every tour,” Scales concluded, “but sometimes they do happen.  It is this unknown factor and these documented accounts that have made the ghost tours here in our mountaintop spa resort so popular.  That is why believers and non-believers alike can enjoy and co-exist on our tours.  Some come to find proof, some come to debunk, but all come to have fun.  And that’s what the Crescent Hotel ghost tours are all about.”
