  1. Haunted, Haunted, Haunted. I am not the only one who’s run into the inhabiting entity. Fortunately, it doesn’t have a negative vibe. But I guarantee it has an intelligence. It is not an “imprint” entity.

    While the theater was empty, I witnessed a moderately sized, white glowing orb with an energy tail above the seating area near the ceiling. Once it was “aware” that I was watching it, it jetted up towards the ceiling and into a vent. It shook me up for a long time, but I was never afraid to go back into the theater. I worked down the street and my co-worker and I were allowed to use the theater’s restroom since the shop we worked in didn’t have one. I was there weekly for several years when no one else was in the building.

  2. Ferndale is a very haunted town. St. Mary’s Cemetery is home to several restless spirits and a rumored Vampire’s Vault is in the back of the cemetery, you can actually see through the vent holes and when shining a flashlight you will see the coffin and purple satin covered walls with silver crosses hanging all over the walls. A plaque on the outside of the vault says Beware: Do not open, stay away.
    Do not visit St.Marys Cemetery after hours especially after dark law enforcement occasionally patrols the area and you will get busted for trespassing.
