Ghost Posse takes over Grass Valley's Holbrooke Hotel


Grass Valley’s historic Holbrooke Hotel will host an incoming group of ghost hunters tonight. Ghost Posse Inc., a Nevada-based nonprofit organization, has booked all 17 rooms in the hotel.

The Holbrooke will still accommodate guests in The Purcell House. The dining room and bar will be open, and regulars can expect live music, as well.

The Holbrooke is said to be a known hot spot for paranormal activity, and Ghost Posse’s Ellis Cody said he selected this location because it appeared on a Top 10 list for the Sacramento area’s most haunted places. Ghost Posse won’t be the first group of its kind to stage an investigation at the Holbrooke, but hotel staff says it is the first time a group of paranormal investigators have booked the entire hotel.

“If you’re interested in the paranormal or if you’re a fan of those ghost-hunting shows, that’s essentially what we do,” said Ghost Posse executive Steve Olsen.

Check-in begins at 3 p.m., and from 3 to 8 p.m., members of Ghost Posse will be selling tickets to anyone who wants to join the investigation. For $20, paranormal enthusiasts can join them on their ghost hunt for an hour.

Organizers say they’ll also be selling ceramics and other goods to raise funds for future investigations.

For more information, contact the Holbrooke Hotel at 530-273-1353 or drop by at 212 W. Main St. in Grass Valley.
