Long Description:
Hauntedplaces.org says that strange sounds and the apparition of a woman in an old-fashioned dress have been reported.

An E Clampus Vitus Historical Marker on the building provides some history:

Carbon Hotel

The Carbon Hotel was built in the early 1900's. It was first owned by C.A. Bartolino. The building was used as a hotel, bar, cafe and sporting house throughout the years. Due to the large number of single male immigrants into the local mines, the bordello on the upper floor was very popular, though somewhat illegal, during Helper's heydays. Due to increasing pressure from the authorities during the 1970's the doors were closed. Matt Warner Chapter purchased the building in 1987 with the help of Helper City. The building was restored and is presently used as a meeting hall for the organization.
