Trolley Square, according to Dunning's book, is known to be a gathering ground for ghosts. She says that the most active ghost in the area is known as the bus barn painter. He is believed to be a man who died in the 1920s and is often seen near the north doors of the shopping center.

Two different stories surround the man's death. The first says he is either believed to have been a worker in the area during the 1920s or died in a fire. The second theory is the man was injured in the shop he worked at, continued to work, died shortly after and then came back to the location to stay.

I worked at the Hotel and delivered room service to this family a few times. The father would hide his family when I delivered food. It was the 11th floor and the Alta suite, which is the middle room facing east.

Speaking of haunted locations, I had hoped the Salt Lake Masonic Temple would make the list. It's believed there is a ghost we call Charlie. No one is sure of Charlie's origins, but he is well known in the building. Charlie likes to haunt the elevator, stopping it on the wrong floor. He likes the third floor. We think it's because that is where the ladies tea room is located. Maybe he likes the view of the great Hall. Sometimes he sends us to the sixth floor, which is mostly unused but does lead to the roof where there used to be dining and dancing. Elevator Technicians have found nothing wrong with the controls or any other reason for the unplanned stops, yet the elevator would stop at these locations going up or down.
