AE For the Capital City Weekly When working as a reporter for the KHNS radio station, which serves Haines, Skagway, and Klukwan, James P. Devereaux decided to gather ghost stories from community members for a Halloween broadcast. The range of places ghosts were reported to haunt were various: The Alaskan Hotel, Baranof Castle, the Silverbow Inn and Bakery, McCabe College, and even Sawmill Creek Road. While the broadcast never came to fruition, the stories served as the beginning for the book he’d later write: “Spirits of Southeast Alaska: The History & Hauntings of Alaska’s Panhandle.”
