Haunted Majestic Hotel Bathhouse & Spa?

In July of 2010 the Biography Channel featured Hot Springs' Majestic Hotel in their "I Died in This House" episode of "My Ghost Story". The TV show segment titled "Shower Spa Ghost" was narrated by Karen Shillings and Chad Almond, both members of a local paranormal research organization, as they re-told their experience at the Majestic one evening with cameras in hand.  They experienced strange things including a curtain being moved from the floor to the ceiling while their cameras were rolling.
