THE STANLEY HOTEL
The Stanley Hotel is a 138-room Georgian hotel in Estes Park, Colorado. Located within sight of the Rocky Mountain National Park, the Stanley offers panoramic views of the Rockies. It was built by Freelan O. Stanley of Stanley Steamer fame and opened on July 4, 1909, catering to the rich and famous, including the Titanic survivor Margaret Brown, John Philip Sousa, Theodore Roosevelt, the Emperor and Empress of Japan, and a variety of Hollywood personalities. The Stanley Hotel also hosted Stephen King, inspiring him to write The Shining. Contrary to information sometimes published, King was living in Boulder at the time and did not actually write the novel at the hotel. Parts of the mini-series version of The Shining were filmed there, although it was not used for Stanley Kubrick's cinematic version. The hotel and its surrounding lands are listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
CO-FOUNDERS Scott and Jim met while working at Dalton Lumber. They never knew about each others interest in the paranormal until GHOST HUNTERS premiered on the SYFY channel. They always talked about the unusual things that happened at the store where they worked. The paranormal was a frequent topic of conversation. They talked about joining a paranormal group. In October 2009 they decided to do one better and start their own. Thats how the DALTON PARANORMAL SOCIETY was founded.
