The Crescent Hotel

History:  The Crescent Hotel was built in 1886.  It was remodeled and reopened as a year-round resort in July of 1902, which closed in 1908.  The Crescent College and Conservatory for Young Women was founded in 1908.  It was the most exclusive girls boarding school in the area.  At the end of the 1933 college year, The Crescent College closed its doors, never to be opened again.  In 1937, Dr. Norman Baker bought the Crescent; it became the Baker Hospital and Health Resort, a cancer center.  When Baker was found guilty on seven counts for the use of mails to defraud with his purported cancer cures in January of 1940, the hospital closed, remaining unoccupied through 1946.  The Crescent Hotel reopened in July of 1946, and remains a high class resort in the heart of the Ozarks to this day.
According to the owner of the Crescent Hotel, Marty Roenigk, there are four common hauntings or occurances in the hotel.  Michael, a workman who died during construction in 1886, supposedly haunts room 218 and is often seen walking the grounds.  Frequently, there is a nurse seen and heard pushing a gurney down a hallway.  A young woman is often seen on the grounds.  She apparently was a student at the Woman's College who jumped to her death from the roof or balcony.  Several guests have also reported seeing a man in very formal dress and top hat in the lobby of the hotel.
