Miss Molly's Hotel is located in the heart of the Fort Worth Stockyards National Historic District and is filled with history and haunts as it started as a borthel circa 1910. During this time, Fort Worth was a favorite stop during the cattle drives, and so many cowboys took solace knowing Miss Molly's Hotel would be waiting for them with a hot bath and ladies of the evening for entertainment. Later converted to a boarding house, and then Fort Worth's first bed and breakfast in 1989, Miss Molly's Hotel offers eight themed guest rooms-each named appropriately to reflect the history of that particular room. The premier room, "Miss Josie" was the madam's quarters during the bordello days and still serves as the most requested room. Sightings of the last madam, Ms. Josie King, have been reported; it is said she stands at the foot of the bed, watching over whoever is sleeping in her bed. Reports of hearing footsteps in the room and in the private bath area in addition to hearing a woman's voice during the night, only validate previous and similar claims. The decor of the private bath takes you back in time to an era of days gone by with the original pull chain toilet, pedestal sink, rose petal wall-paper, draped ceiling, polished hardwood floors, and the claw-foot bathtub and shower apparatus from the Victorian era.
Of course, claims of paranormal activity from guests and innkeepers through the years only add to the mystique of Miss Molly's.
