The Palmer House in Sauk Center: One of the most haunted locations in America

Interesting history and stories of paranormal activity in an early-20th-century hotel in Sauk Center, Minnesota.

The pilot episode of the new ‘Borderlands’ series brings paranormal investigators to Sauk Center, MN and the Palmer House Hotel. More from on vimeo:

The Sauk Centre House was built in 1863 in Sauk Centre, Minnesota. In 1900, it had burned to the ground. The Palmer House was built in its place in 1901 using the same substructure. It remains one of the most haunted locations in America.

We arrived at Sauk Centre to document the history and the apparent paranormal activity of the Palmer House. An investigation was led by historian, co-founder of the International Paranormal Society and host of Darkness Radio, Adrian Lee, as well as psychic sensitives by the name of Lisa Lee and Tim Baxton.
