Did you know that a quack, self-proclaimed doctor named Norman Baker scammed hundreds of dying cancer patients into coming from all over the world, only to end up being slowly poisoned? The Crescent was the playground for these events, and it’s said that to this day you may get to meet the awakened souls of those who were doomed to perish at the hands of Baker. Also, there may or may not be a ghost cat rolled up into the mix somewhere… in any case, find out the story here as Trey Youngdahl chronicles this Unnatural Act in the Natural State!

  1. Hello,

    I’m a fan of your podcast. I’m an author/artist in Fayetteville, AR and I have a new graphic nonfiction that just came out and I was wondering if you’d like to feature it on your show? What Follows Is True: Crescent Hotel, is a completed, 240-page, exhaustively researched, fully painted, graphic nonfiction that explores the Crescent Hotel’s strange two years as the Baker Hospital, one of the strangest and most controversial legends in the town of Eureka Springs, Arkansas.

    The luxurious Crescent Hotel opened its doors in 1886, later falling on hard times. In 1937, the hotel was converted into a cancer clinic by Norman Baker, advertising he had the cure for cancer. The Crescent Hotel is considered one of the most haunted hotels in the U.S. but the bizarre and tragic story of the two years when it operated as a cancer hospital haunts the hotel far more than tales of specters.

    Here is information and images from my book HERE.

    The book is available at my STORE.

    Thanks so much and I hope to hear from you!
