BELOW: The haunted and historic LA POSADA ---- forget what the NAY SAYERS write or say --- this place is haunted. During Wild West & Turn of the Century days, the master of the manner -- was ABRAHAM STAAB -- he was the AL CAPONE of the New Mexico Territory. The second floor is where Julia was imprisoned by her husband for five years -- she was dispatched -- depending on the tale -- in the room behind the far right or middle window. Through the centuries, Julia's ghost has been at the windows. The below picture does capture an ominous look or odd vibe of the mansion.
Behind these two ladies is the ghost rooms, the JULIA STAAB SUITE --- this doorway opens to the middle window in the picture at the top of this page.
BELOW: An ancient picture of ALLAN upstairs IN THE HAUNTED MAIN BUILDING of La Posada. To the right of Allan are the rooms where Julia was jailed, there is activity at times at the doors and at the far window in the hallway. Supposedly, Julia tried to escape from her imprisonment at the far window that is in front of Tour Guide & Author -- ALLAN. Note how old this picture is, there is no plaque commemorating this room "THE JULIA STAAB SUITE".
BELOW: MARY LOU & NANCY in the haunted Staab Suite --- this is where the mayhem happened --- as in Julia was dispatched. The management of La Posada told ALLAN and firmly, that the portrait in the murder room is that of Julia as a mature woman. The honchos at La Posada should know, but Allan had a different theory on the portrait.

Below: End of a tour at LA POSADA --- in a place that is not so scary --- however -- at one time this patio prior to 1996 was a large ROSE GARDEN -- Julia Staab's ---- before the hedges of roses were taken out and this patio put in its place --- this location was known by the eccentrics as the GARDEN OF GOOD AND EVIL -- and yes on rare occasion at t night Julia's ghost was seen in her ALICE THROUGH THE LOOKIG GLASS garden... Not any more -- it is a concrete patio with bright colors and a great place to end a daytime tour at.
