The Haunted GlenMorey Country House Bed and Breakfast Inn
Built in 1859, The Morey House is the third oldest house still standing in Placerville, and built just 10 years after the gold rush and 10 years prior to the completion of the Trans-continental Railroad, GlenMorey Bed and Breakfast is older than 150 years. It's original owner and builder, Dr. Isaac Titus, only stayed in the home 10 years before being elected to state senate. He then sold the home to Henry and Ellen Morey, who raised 3 Children in the house while running a successful foundry business. One of their children raised their family here. It had a number of private owners in the 1950s and 60s, before it became a bed and breakfast in 1977, and then a bio-marine consulting company in the 1990s. It was again a private home in 2001 when Tom and Alison Loeprich and mother, Maggie Smith, purchased it and returned it to bed and breakfast operation, so that many people could enjoy her history.
We know that in 1910 an addition was built onto the old farmhouse. The current Inn owners, Allisson and Tom Loeprich, made the decision to live in this newer section of their Inn and they sometimes rent out 2 of the other rooms. They quickly started hearing stories from folks of strange things happening, activity of unknown origin, right there in their addition, as well as in the original part of the building. Charting the stories and accounts, they noted that the most often talked about activity was in the shared dining and living area, part of the original 1859 home.
Considering this part of the house, the owners tell us they are particularly interested in the Inverness Room. The owner, Tom Loeprich, has had several of his own experiences there, such as hearing voices when nobody was awake in their home. Guests have also seen a woman dressed in white in the rooms, and heard doorknobs jiggling. Upon inspecting, the owners saw no guests there.
The owners talk of hearing footsteps to their bedroom in the middle of the night. When they come to the door to investigate it stops. “It is not uncommon to get up in the middle of the night to see who it is only to find nobody is awake” Alison shares. Alison thinks that the woman in white is the spirit of Ellen Morey after all she did die in bed right here at her lovely farmhouse. Two of the Titus children also passed away here. A little girl has appeared, with a cute, vivacious, and clearly appearing comfortable in her surroundings. Her name is believed to be Mary so she is clearly the child of Dr. Titus. She is a happy and lovely spirit who is found sprinting about.
