The history of this location dates back to ancient times; some of those who oversaw this building are very well said to remain. In the tunnels, many report shadows, full-bodied apparitions, and mist showing up in photographs. Some people have been grabbed or had objects thrown at them. In the washroom, a very nasty spirit named Harry throws chairs, lightbulbs, stones, or whatever he can get his hands on.
