The St James Hotel is considered to be one of the most haunted places in all of Alabama. Located in the town of Selma, Alabama, the residents and many visitors to this particular establishment have issued several accounts of hauntings and paranormal events that have occurred.
It is believed that a few different spirits enjoy spending their time in the building – in the afterlife. Two of the apparent hauntings that are said to occur include that of the popular outlaw, Jesse James, as well as his girlfriend, Lucinda, that stayed at the hotel one night. Several guests have reported seeing the spirits of Jesse James and his girlfriend, Lucinda.

Several guests have reported seeing a man fully dressed in clothing from the 1800s in rooms 214, 314 and 315.

Located just an hour away from the Gaines Ridge Dinner Club and built in 1837, the St. James Hotel is one of the oldest operational facilities in Alabama. During the Civil War, soldiers used the hotel as a place to discuss battle strategies, and when the Battle of Selma took place, the entire town of Selma pretty much burned to the ground, but the St. James Hotel remained standing. After the Civil War ended, a man named Benjamin Sterling Tower became the new owner.
