Haunted inns and hotels
Tutwiler Hotel, Montgomery, Alabama is known to be haunted by Colonel Tutwiler as he is supposed to do more than roam the halls. A bartender got into trouble several years ago for leaving all the lights and stoves on in the restaurant after it closed. Though he insisted that he had turned off everything, but whenever he looks back all the lights were on again. One day the manager found that someone had cooked a large meal and taken out a bottle of wine. On that day, the employees of the hotel began to say, when they were leaving `Good night Colonel, and please turn the lights and stove off, and don't make a mess' and guess what, they never had a problem after that. In 2007 the Tutwiler underwent a complete renovation and it is said that old spirits are chased away in renovations and only time will tell whether that is the true in the case of Tutwiler Hotel.
