  1. Me and 2 of my friends went for a ghost hunt there around halloween this year. We didnt catch a thing but we’re going back. For right now, I say it’s just a bunch of stories.

    I have worked there and can say for sure that he 4th floor is haunted. Also there are things going on in the basement I have seen and know others that have seen a man in the basement. He will walk into a room and when you went to see who was there the room would be empty. The owners are VERY careful to try and keep people from investigating there.

  3. I live on 90 kaufmann ave and i take a pictures yesterday n its a man dressing old clothes and a verry thin women on his side, i have the pictures on my phone
