During our tour of Manresa Castle the tour guide indicated a 13 year old “spirit” named Lotta frequented the place. She liked room 214. No one really knew her affiliation with the castle.
She told us that the original owner and builder of the castle, Charles Eisenbeis, was buried several blocks away from the castle at the Laurel Grove Cemetery. For some reason they had to dig up his grave and discovered a casket of a child above Charles’ casket. Some speculate this may have been an illegitimate child of his and that it was Lotta. All speculation, but a cool story nevertheless.
So we decided to visit the cemetery. It was beautiful. Cemeteries calm me. There were some very ornate family plots like the Eisenbeis one. It was a drizzly day when we were there. I was in awe of some of the headstones and the way the moss, lichen and fungi were growing in the grooves of the deceased name.
