Steve’s Stories – The Ghosts On Ionia Ave. In Grand Rapids [Video]
Continuing with Steve's special October Ghost Stories, he did this week's episode on The Ghosts on Ionia Avenue. Ionia Avenue in downtown Grand Rapids has had a storied history. The street was once the heart of the downtown, with dozens of hotels, bars and saloons for weary travelers coming into town via the Union Train Station (located where Van Andel Arena's parking lot is now.) The hotels on that street have seen many deaths, including some that were unsolved. There are constantly ghost sightings in the buildings that remain from the era! This week, Steve dove into a few of the hotels and their eerie tales.
