  1. I WORKED THERE YEARS AGO. MANY TIMES I FOUND MYSELF SCARED TO BE ALONE AND I HEARD VOICES IN THE BACK DOCTORS OFFICE AND ALL THE DOORS WOULD BE OPENED WITH MEDICAL SUPPLIES MOVED FROM ONE SIDE OF THE ROOM TO THE OTHER. THERE ARE RESTLESS GHOST THAT LIVE THERE.

  2. I lived there for years I believe it was but mainly in the basement area was the worst when the basement was more open u could go into the morg and crematorium I actly have found a ton of operating tools down there

  3. I live there currently. There are many circumstances that could be interpreted as “paranormal” activity but are actually just normal. The place is old and creepy, and parts of it are abandoned – in non-use. The complex has many empty facilities, like an old snack bar and a public hall building, all in disuse and disrepair. The long halls carry voices – and the residents are very social, mostly seniors, who aren’t shy about conversing. You can hear “disembodied” voices at one end of a long corridor that are actually coming from people talking in the laundry room 25 doors down! The ventilation system also carries voices and sounds from other floors! Cold spots? The main building has no central heating (hot water comes from an old-fashioned boiler unit that serves the whole building). There are “cold spots” all over. “Apparitions” are usually just real people going about their business, sometimes quietly, stealthily… with lots of doors and hallways that allow one to quickly disappear simply by turning a corner. Heavy main doors creek loudly, the elevator groans up and down. And yes, there are plenty of lonely spots all over the complex that make your skin crawl if you’re there alone… walled off apartments and old utility rooms, doorways that lead nowhere (that probably did at one time, now just dead-ends). It’s quite a place. Haunted? Who knows? It certainly has a creepy enough history, and equally creepy personality.

  4. I have seen the woman in the hallway just the first week I moved in here..I saw a solid figure walk thru my bathroom wall and look at the towel rack and how I hung my towel and put her hand on her hip and shake her head haha … I could feel the cold solid static feeling..first time I had ever seen anything like this…I started calling her my roommate and a friend came over for coffee and noticed my coffee mugs spinning around…have lived here for a year and haven’t seen her since..pretty cool..I love living here..

  5. I worked for a furniture delivery company, one day me and my partner were making a delivery he wondered down the hall to find the room we were supposed to be going to. Some time had went by so I walked out of the building waited outside, I started to feel uneasy the all eye lashes on you feeling. Few moments later saw my partner he came out saying what’s up? I said huh? Did you find the room? He said you were calling me right? I said no man I was outside most of the time!, the most puzzled look in his face, calmly said I heard you say “partners name” “where are you going” I looked at him kinda terrified and said man I hope ur playing around he calmly looked at me and said “ok, let’s just go now” ( he did find the room, no one was home) went up there a few times after that but never stayed long enough to have any more experiences
