Are Ghosts Real? 
People want to believe.  Not only would proof positive give them a confirmation of life after death, but would cement those who have a deep faith in the power of the soul. None of us want to believe that this is all there is.

the dumas Brothel
Butte, Montana

The Dumas was designed and built as a brothel in 1890 and remained active as a brothel until 1982, making it America's longest running house of prostitution. It was one of the first two story brick structures built in Butte's famous Red Light District along Mercury Street. And ironically, the Dumas is the last survivor of an area where vice thrived and women worked hard, lived hard and sometimes died hard.

From Wikipedia

The house was built in 1890 in a Victorian Brothel style and is the last example of that type of architecture known to exist in the United States. Its three-stories feature skylights, several large parlor rooms, and the basement holds several “cribs”, smaller rooms with just enough space for a bed. The rear entrance of the hotel was in a small brick-lined alley off Wyoming Street known as Venus Alley, where many more "cribs" were located. Underground tunnels lead to various Butte buildings, allowing certain well-to-do patrons some privacy while conducting their “business”.

The prostitution business at The Dumas Brothel was officially shuttered in 1982 for income tax violations, when the last Madame, Ms. Ruby Garrett, could no longer afford to pay income taxes
