Pictured: The Union Hotel still stands at 401 First Street in Benicia. It initially opened in the 1800s and has had various names such as the Newport, the Bella Union and the Old Union. A major renovation was begun in the 1970s after the building was condemned and slated to be destroyed. The Union Hotel now has 12 historically decorated guest rooms as well as a dining room and a bar. It is claimed that the hotel is haunted by ghosts, some of whom are "Disappointed Mary", "Mrs. Miniver" and a tall man wearing a black suit.
