  1. Well I worked in Mo Hill Home for 3yrs and let me tell you it was the only place that ever scared me! Saw ectoplasm, heard steps on third floor when it was empty. Heard someone on the staircase from outside when no one was in building. Locked closet door rattled and was pushed in from inside, several people reported seeing soldiers and heard children crying.Lots of history in this place, murders and deaths. Downstairs rooms in disaray that were neat the night before. Radios and TVs cutting off and on by themselves. Judge for yourself but something was going on there!
