The Cavalier Hotel in Virginia Beach, Virginia

Haunted Cavalier Hotel in Virginia Beach
On April 4-9, 1927, a grand ceremonious opening for The Cavalier was held. The grand style of hostelry had returned to Virginia Beach. Ben Bernie Band played for the festivities, and received congratulation telegrams from Sophie Tucker and Al Jolson. Around the same time, the Norfolk & Western Railroad new gasoline powered train named "The Cavalier" took its maiden voyage down its run from Cleveland to Norfolk. Its motto was, "The Cavalier to The Cavalier". More mid-Westerners flocked to Virginia Beach in June when a Norfolk & Western Pullman coach began nonstop travel from Chicago to The Cavalier's private depot. On June 5, 1929, Adolph Coors had mysterious fall that ended his death and he may have never left.
