St. James Hotel today by Kathy Alexander.
This old hotel, built in 1872, witnessed over 26 murders during Cimarron’s wild days of the late 1800s. Clay Allison, Black Jack Ketchum, and Buffalo Bill Cody have all left their mark on the St. James, as attested by the numerous bullet holes in the main dining room’s ceiling. The old hotel is said to continue to host several unearthly guests. The spiritual activity of the hotel has been featured on the popular television shows Unsolved Mysteries and A Current Affair.
