First built in 1872, many famous people have stayed at the St. James over the years, including Wyatt Earp, Jesse James, Buffalo Bill Cody, Clay Allison, Black Jack Ketchum, Billy the Kid and Thomas James Wright. It is said that some of these spirits still haunt these halls today.

The St. James hotel has retained its haunted appearance, with the creaking staircase and tilted chandeliers. The rooms remain named for those who stayed here during the late 1800's. Room 18 which is said to be haunted by T.J. Wright will remain intact and un-booked as if he were still rooming there today.
