    1. Yesterday, my family and I, went here for a family trip after picking up me and my 2 brothers that had tagged along. We first went to the cemetery where my father was getting strange feelings that left him dizzy and sick. We ruled it out that he wasn’t feeling to good. We went into the town, knowing everything was closing when my dad said he felt as if he was being drained and uneasy. Our last stop was at the Bird Cage Theater. My father, who was in pain, was taking pictures all around this place as he was making sure he had the perfect picture (even tho is pictures were perfect). We came home the night when my dad checked out the pictures he took which left him speechless. A women with black clothing walking up the stairs that were near the entrance. The stairs were closed off so no one could have gone up. Wish I can show you the picture but my father can’t send it to me.

    2. A few years ago my sister and I went on a little adventure to Tombstone. One of our first stops was the Bird Cage Theater. We were very fortunate that we were the only ones in there at the time, which almost never happens! We were both looking around, exploring and taking pictures. I decided I was going to go up the stairs by the stage and check out what was back there. I was about 3 steps up and turned to look into the small cage next to the steps, and I felt a hand grab my waist and squeeze. I thought it was my sister, so I kind of yelped and laughed and turned to tell her to knock it off. Well, she was literally across the room with her back turned to me. I called out to her and told her what happened, and we both just started laughing. I said out loud “If you’re gonna get handsy, buy me a drink first!”.
      The rest of our trip in the Birdcage was pretty uneventful. We heard a few weird bumps and thumps but its an old building, so it could have been anything! 🙂
