  1. There is the former Historic Suites on 612 Central. It was converted jnto an apartment complex in 2003 but back when I stayed there I learned that it was haunted, and there was a lot of activity on the second floor. Stories of guests’ sheets being pulled away from their beds and the general feeling of being watched were all around. I recall during my stay the lights and phone went out only in my room one night. I began feeling a misty energy around the place and it was always chilly no mattee what I did to raise the temperature. I also recall seeing the fleeting image of a woman in black dresses in the period of roughly the 1890s or 1900s. No face just a silhouette. I had to move to a different room and even then I felt her presence moving things around.

    From what I gather there was an attempt to contact this person through a seance but it was unsuccessful. The basement of the Historic Suites was also another place you just couldn’t be at without feeling a sense of oppression. Any info or additional experience there would be appreciated.

  2. In July of 2016 i was an employee of a private security company hired to guard the property while it was undergoing renovations. I had the midnight to 0600 shift, having been working similar night shifts the week previously it was in line with my sleep schedule. I was told to check every floor once an hour unless called for assistance by a tenant. The basement and sub basement were somewhat water logged and the main lobby, which used to be a bank, had a peculiar feel about it. It felt like the room was full of people, but as it was used as the construction office and it was 0200, I was the only one inside. Several floors which were unoccupied that i searched had people noises coming from empty rooms. I chalked it up to vents carrying the noise, then i realized that only the top 2 floors were occupied at the time and the ventilation between floor 2 and the second from the top were disconnected. No apparitions, but a definite feeling of being watched and followed.
