    I work at the naval base as a housekeeper. I felt activity occur while I am on base. My most recent experience was just today. I just finished my work and I’m waiting for my shift to end. I keep hearing noises and right now I’m the only housekeeper on the floor. I turned off the radio and the next thing I hear is foot steps as I someone was walking right past the room I’m and there was no one there. I haven’t witnessed a girl, but I have witnessed what I thought was a soldier at one time just out of the corner of my eye. I’m adding this as a safety measure for all. This is a secure base and you need access to come. I would not advise anyone to make the attempt to come. Thank you!

  2. there is an abandoned hospital at this navy base. you can’t go inside as it s trespassing, but even when walking around the outside, the air is extremely heavy. it feels as if there are demonic prescences. i went one time very late at night and felt a sense of impending doom as soon as i got to the door on the left side that is barred shut. i went back to the car. i felt as if a large figure was looming above me. the entire naval base and shipyard feels awful. i hate going there, but if you’re looking for a scare, you’ll get one.

    • Went here super late back in like 2016 with like 4 friends at 2 am as we were in there for a hr or 2 we went down this really narrow hallway as we kept hearing weird noises and all had our flashlights on as we heard a loud demonic ass scream at the top of its lungs and it scares me to this day ! We all ran down the hallway and couldn’t get out so we had to go back down the way we heard the scream from but made it out safe ! I literally have chills typing this don’t go late at night their there are definitely ghost in there

  3. I’ve been inside several times. Extremely eerie, a lot of souls linger. Their presence is felt but I’ve only gone during the day because I’m a wuss. I can’t fathom being inside at night. I’d have a heart attach.

  4. My landlord rented a space in the old naval hospital and I had to go in there to pay rent. From the moment my feet touched the steps I felt something so heavy so creepy and inside was worst. It was very dark and eerie as if someone was following me. My stomach was in knots I felt so sick so sick that I started mailing in my rent. I told my landlord that I would never return not even to the parking lot if he wanted the money wait for the mail or come get it. Never will I go back it was too much so powerful.
