First National Bank Building

You are here Home  > Historical Buildings >  First National Bank Building

This 1914 granite building, one of the grandest in its time, was more recently used as a setting for the film “Day of the Dead.” Seen in the opening credits, the building was spattered with blood and filled with zombie actors. But the place is said to have a real haunt, too: For many years, employees have witnessed the ghost of a man who runs through the stairwell.

  1. yeah i think its haunted my dad used to work here when i was little there was always something spooky about this place more in the back of the back though and yes on the stairs more in the darker areas of this place

  2. I currently work on first Street and have for over 3 years now. The restaurant i work at is about 30 feet from the address indicated on here. It has an entrance in the front and also one on the opposite side. The best was I can describe the feeling is a creepy and uncomfortable aura. There can almost be a sadness that blankets the entire place and then just vanishes. Although I have never seen spirits, I have heard things I can’t describe. I have mentioned certain things at work and on a few occasions the item I have talked about has either stopped working or malfunctioned for no apparent reason. I would truly like to know more about what happened in this building.
