Previously the city’s hospital, the courthouse is believed to be haunted.

  1. I think SOMETHING is certainly at work here considering the experiences I have had there. Please note that i am not a criminal but i have been both a defendant and a plaintiff and justice seems to depend on your attorney. Now Of course that is an influence anywher…but definitely lawyers of Native American descent have an incredibly high success rate while those who are not seem to get nowhere.

  2. I went there on a field trip with students, and while down by the jail, I felt someone push me. And I was there in that area by myself.
