The National Harbor
Aspect: Lust turned to Power
Face: Alice LeBlanc

National Harbor is a 300-acre waterfront development features numerous hotels, restaurants, nightspots galleries, shops and boutiques, a marina as well as penthouse apartments along the shore of the Potomac River in Maryland just south of Washington, D.C. The crown jewel and central hub of the development is the Gaylord National Resort & Convention Center, featuring 2,000 guest rooms, 470,000 square feet of auditoriums, showrooms and meeting space, seven restaurants, a spa and a nightclub. It's 18-story glass atrium looks out across the Potomac River and it has a commanding view of the cities of Washington and Alexandria.

Few are aware that prior to being rezoned as a mixed-use (residential, retail and office) development the land where the National Harbor now stands was previously known as Salubria Plantation. The plantation house, built in 1827 by Dr. John H. Bayne, had mysteriously burned down in 1981 and the land was sold soon after. Although the cause of the plantation fire remains a mystery, rumors abound that it was the result of a domestic dispute involving the beautiful young new wife of John Bayne's aging descendent. It is said that Bayne's family didn't approve of the marriage.

Some employees of the Gaylord National claim to have seen the ghost of Mrs. Bayne and the resort has certainly had more than it's share of mysteries, from guests dying in their beds to inexplicable disappearances of valuable merchandise, jewelry in particular. The less superstitious don't see anything mysterious in random unfortunate events, though, and say that the white spectre who has been seen haunting the halls is none other than the capricious Alice LeBlanc, the owner of one of Washington D.C.'s highest quality escort services whose business is largely run out of the massive hotel.
