  1. When I was a kid (I’m 31) my cousins from Ennis would drive me there for a good fright. We never saw ghosts but the people who live in that town are weird! And I heard stories of neo nazi skinheads hanging out in there. I doubt the stories were true. I never went inside.

  2. We wanted to explore last night, but the school was gated off. Will the owner let you explore with permission? And how do we find the owner?

  3. Do no this waste your time in going to this place. I just went there and its private property owned by someone who rents it to people. So there’s no point in going to it because you can’t go onto the property.

  4. Very disappointed went on 8-13-2017 and couldn’t see anything. Private property and a tacky castle apt building built around the bBaschool. Sad that this building was jacked up so bad.

  5. It’s actually a good place to live, surrounded by good people. Same old school just fresh paint, some new floors and the extra brick on top for the castle effect, owners extremely nice. No hauntings though lol sorry. A few people don’t like it but for no good reason, probably personal issues idk. But no hauntings, stayed a while and never saw a thing

  6. EM House is damn . In the late 1800’s a circus came to EM house they had a fire and a lot of people die. The were burn beyond recognition. 120 die in the fire that’s the reason why this place is haunted. God give them eternal rest. Amen

  7. Castle is back up again, just damages to the center where there was an auditorium, the living areas are fine, but still haven’t seen a haunting. The owner is a very hard worker, so happy for her

  8. I am a YouTuber looking for info on how to get in touch with the owner to investigate the school if you could help me I would appreciate it thank you

    The owner patches the building together with tape and paint. She rents to poor and disabled people so they don’t complain about the conditions because they can’t afford to move. Now she’s been renting out “apartments” without being approved by the fire marshal so they shut her down and she made everyone grab a bag and leave that night with the understanding that they would be coming back in a few days but noooooo. Everyone was out on the street and haven’t been allowed to get their stuff not to mention the rent everyone had paid that was not reimbursed. Steps are being taken to get justice ☹️

  11. I’m in high school, it’s very difficult to study, and I didn’t think that I would have to turn to professionals and order student work from them. In the end, I found a company, there is a service professional personal statement writers https://www.personalstatementwriter.org/ and they wrote me three papers, I’m so glad, because I submitted them on time and received a high score for it. Soon I will be admitted to a higher education institution and I hope that everything will work out for me.

  12. During my school days, writing essays was my Achilles heel. No matter how hard I tried, I could not express my thoughts effectively in words. Each task seemed like an insurmountable obstacle, leaving me frustrated and anxious. As soon as I turned to paper writing services by masterpapers.com for help, I found a solution to my problems. With their expert help and guidance, essay writing has become less daunting. Their authors helped me articulate my ideas, structure my arguments, and polish my prose..
