This building was constructed in 1905 for the Lewis and Clark Centennial Exposition. It was originally a grand hotel, but now is an apartment complex. Those living in the apartments have reported sighting various apparition’s, and feeling an intimidating presence on the lower floor. The feeling is less intimidating on the upper level.

  1. I used to live on the second floor of this apartment building in the early 2000s. I can’t say I experienced any haunting experiences from the undead but I know it has a dark history and my neighbor across the hall was schizophrenic. He would often haunt me and the other residents by knocking on our doors and telling us there were video cameras in his studio apartment and we were watching him.

  2. I lived here 2013-2014. My coffee pot would randomly switch on in the middle of the night and my sink would also turn on. One night it sounded like someone was running up and down the halls. The walls were super thin and I was trying to sleep, so I opened my door, ready to tell whoever it was to quiet down. No one was there.

  3. One time in 2005, I woke up to the sight of a middle-aged lady in a blue nightgown in the kitchen. She looked like she was getting ready to make coffee. I couldn’t believe my eyes, so I buried my face in my pillow for 30 secs and looked up again. She was gone. I didn’t learn that The Fairmount was a famously haunted site until a year or two later.

    • I investigated this place and can what I concluded is that there’s multiple demonic activity going on here. They’re not good spirit.

  4. An old friend lived here and one night we felt/ heard banging on the wall. When I asked her who her neighbor was she said no one lived there. It stopped after we started burning some sage

  5. I lived at the Fairmount sept 2011 in 222 on second floor. I had a poltergeist that kept moving my refrigerator in the kitchen.

    Just walking by here I get a strong spooky vibe. I know that for awhile this place had a bad reputation in terms of the people living there, and that’s kind of what I feel, a vibe of despair and tragedy.
