Numerous reports of ghosts include the apparition of Miss Dorothy, a former nursemaid who roams the hallways and the bedroom bearing her name. Reports of people hearing talking upstairs, like women holding a conversation. Sounds of dining room chairs moving, like somebody’s pulling out the chairs getting ready to sit down, people moving about and radio stations that switch by themselves. Previous investigators have encountered strange sounds and numerous EVPs while investigating the site. A little girl has been heard singing, sounds of frequent phantom footsteps, smells of perfume, vomit and animal odors and the basement seems to be very aggressive against female investigators.
