I’m always out documenting places, especially in Utah.
Many times I hear rumors of places being haunted, evil, etc. This isn’t to confirm if they are or aren’t – but here’s a list of places I’ve documented that I’ve also heard many times are haunted places.
This pump house has been a favorite for people who like ghost stories and haunted things in the area for as long as I can remember. A lot of websites call it the Benjamin Pump House even though I think it’s technically between Lake Shore and Palmyra.
These pump houses are for irrigation water and aren’t that uncommon, but the fact that so many kids talk about made me want to at least document it.
There are haunted places websites talking about a man getting caught in a machine and dying and another man trying to get him out and getting his arm caught and also dying. They also say there are unexplained lights and noises at night.
Another very common mix up for people is they go to the Larsen/Moran House and call it the pump house, it wasn’t a pump house, it was a residential home.
The Historic Ben Lomond Hotel in downtown Ogden, Utah.
Located on Historic 25th Street of downtown Ogden, Utah Ben Lomond Suites Historic Hotel started life as the five-story Reed Hotel in 1891. In 1927 the hotel was completely reworked in an attempt to create a fire proof hotel. Eleven stories were added and the hotel was renamed the Bigelow Hotel. In 1933 Marriner S. Eccles aquired the hotel and renamed it the Ben Lomond Hotel. Then in the 1980s the 350 room hotel was completely renovated and converted to a 120 suite condo-hotel. The Ben Lomond is the last of the three “grand hotels” in Utah that is still being operated as a hotel. Evidence of this legacy can be seen in the crystal chandeliers, marble floors and decorative ceilings as you enter the lobby of this historic hotel, which is listed on both the Utah & National Historic Registers.
There are many stories about it being haunted, a quick search online will pull up sites like this.
