72 Hours is headed to the southern Rockies of New Mexico in this week’s new episode/finale! Throughout our Season 1  journey I had the pleasure of traveling to an array of distinct locations, but none was quite like our temporary home in New Mexico.

Once we arrived at our lodging during our stay, we learned quickly the establishment had quite the history. Built in 1872, The St. James Hotel was a stop for many travelers of the Santa Fe Trail and was witness to at least 26 murders during the unruly days of the Wild West. Some notable guests include Clay Allison, Black Jack Ketchum, Jesse James and Buffalo Bill Cod. In addition to its colorful past, The St. James is known to be an active hub of spiritual activity. While I didn’t experience much in the way of the paranormal, the hotel’s vivid history felt quite present throughout our stay.

Go back in time at The St. James Hotel:

Next we venture to the great outdoors of New Mexico’s Rockies! Tune in for the 72 Hours Season Finale; coming your way Friday, July 26 at 10:30PM ET/PT!
