Description Along upper Main Street of Callicoon New York, USA (Sullivan County) is the Western Hotel with its mansard roof and its Harmonie Hall. The old hotel is a 19th century home to Chautauqua lectures, melodramas, concerts and roller skating.The hotel is also the site of the storied murder of Laura Darling by her bartender husband. The Western Hotel is said to be haunted by the ghost of Laura Darling Kahl. In 1921, she was shot to death on the front steps by her husband, the hotel's bartender. Her parents owned the hotel at the time.In operation since 1852, the Western has been the scene of not one, but two murders, including one most recent. On April 13th, 2008, at 12:30 in the morning, a bar patron and championship shooter began chatting with Joe Naughton, the Western's owner. Lori Schubeler, a waitress, leaned against the bar as Naughton showed off his collection of antique and personal firearms. While handling an unregistered, semi-automatic, .25-caliber handgun, Naughton accidentally discharged it. The bullet hit Schubeler in the aorta and lung, killing her.The Hotel is presently for sale...any takers???Composed in Photoshop with layers, Orton effects for ghostly appearance, filters, black and white cobnversion, and textures courtesy of Painted Textures, and Lena-Bem Anna
