    1. Went here with my parents and sibling when I was younger, you definitely feel a presence here, my mom felt it too. I distinctly remember feeling it where the ladder was (you’d know it when you see the ladder I’m talking about, there’s this dummy positioned like it’s walking up the ladder). I’m totally sure there are more than one ghosts there but I remember specifically feeling that there were two male ghosts following us on the tour- the first one was just kind of hanging around following us then the second one kind of felt cautious or protective of the environment.

    2. I am not a ghost hunter ,but I have to say I have encountered ghost .. I remember my boyfriend taking a cruise around there and I seen a soldier clear as day , he had a shotgun in uniform right there by the ladder ducking down and looking up .. I still remember that

    3. Anyone know much as far as how to get in? ABANDON or what. Jessica has got all the answers to it all doesn’t she . Life death everything. So sure arent you. Why are you on a haunted places website if you believe ghosts are just demons? You need to be behind those walls were you belong(church) Go to 700club.com or something.

    4. Hey guys. I grew up about two block’s away from the museum. I and my friends used to go out there and stay the nite there. we never had any unusual experiences there. beautiful place. love the old fort MacArthur days.
