Paranomal Atlas

In 1893 Dr Henry Howard Holmes opened the 'Worlds Fair' Hotel, a massive three story, block long structure known locally as 'The Castle'. However it also had another purpose; the murder of women.

Using a series of different contractors, Holmes constructed a labyrinthine series of rooms, secret passages, false doors, stairways to nowhere and the many traps and murder devices. It was in the basement that he would perform his dissections and other grisly works.
