  1. This building is very haunted.. I worked here when it was a bar. One night, it was very busy. And we ran low on straws and napkins. The Bartender sent me upstairs to get some supplies. Well, I was up there getting supplies and the door slammed shut on me leaving me in darkness. I ran to the door and tried to open it. And it would not budge. I felt a presence with me, I got very dizzy, and fell to my knees. I saw black shadows swirling around me and a buzz of voices. I was so terrified, I screamed and screamed and nobody heard me. Finally they came looking for me and they said that there was no lock on that door. I know it was locked. Needless to say I quit. I will not even walk by this building today. I still have nightmares about this

    • Hey Jessica! I’m sorry you were so frightened. My name is Maya and I got to Full Sail, I’m apart of Paranormal Adventures of Central Florida, I would love to interview you and have you tell your story as we have been collecting data about the Carey Hand building and plan to investigate here soon.
