plaza hotel: Las Vegas, NM
On the National Historic Santa Fe Trail is the Plaza Hotel which has been a tradition in Las Vegas,NM. since the 1800's. The traditional hotel was built in the Historic Plaza Park which was also home to many outlaws such as Jesse James, Doc Holiday, Voodoo Brown, Billy the Kid and Vicente Silva. The Plaza Hotel is home to one of the most-loved and active ghosts in Northeastern New Mexico, Byron T. Mills. A former owner of the hotel, Byron acted as town Mayor and as a territorial representative. Mills Avenue carries his name. In fact, his ego was so large that he named it after himself. He died in 1947, at the Elks Lodge, but still lives today in the room-310- that he loved! In fact, this summer he was spotted in the lobby with a couple of his friends! But, you know, he's really a friendly ghost!
