Meet Pittsburgh’s ghost hunters: Ghosts N’at. The Ghosts N’at team hosts guided ghost hunt events in Pittsburgh and western Pennsylvania. We brought our camera along for a ghost hunting adventure at the Hotel Conneaut.

Is the Hotel Conneaut haunted?

The Hotel Conneaut has a long history. The hotel first opened in 1903 and was destroyed by fire in 1943. The Hotel Conneaut then reopened in 1945. After years of decline, Conneaut Lake Park and the hotel went bankrupt in 1995. The hotel was reopened under private ownership in 2008 and has become a destination for ghost hunters.

The Hotel Conneaut has been featured in an episode of A&E’s show “Paranormal State.”
