  1. While visiting this place – I went upstairs in the building where they have the gift shop, etc. I was silently asking for some proof that the place was haunted while I was up there because I hadn’t seen anything. I admit that I was being slightly mocking. As I was coming back down – I was being very careful – but still wound up falling down the stairs. Luckily I only bruised my leg a bit… but the bruise hung around for months… it was pretty deep. Anyway – maybe I was clumsy… or maybe something ‘pushed’ at the back of my knee to give me that proof I wanted. I can’t be certain.

  2. My wife and I went on one of the Ghost tours. Near the old ammunition building (west side), my wife screamed because she heard someone or something say “ssshhhhhhh!” in her ear. She was not standing with the group and at least 5 to 10 feet away from everyone else. It scared her pretty bad.

  3. (3/31/17) My friends, cousins and their friends, and at least one adult might go to Fort Reno tomorrow. It should be a good way to spend our Saturday…you know, with all the paranormal stuff that goes on in Fort Reno, I might as well record a video! If i do, then it will end up on YouTube.

  4. My husband and I got married in the Chapel back in April 2013. Before our weddin we went out there with my kids to look at it. We had heard bout it bein haunted so we had our recorders on. We went down to the basement. My son said that if there was anyone who wanted to talk to come to him say somethin. When we played back both recorders one of them had picked up an air raid siren and the other had a very soft man’s voice sayin hello. In alot of our weddin pictures you see at least one if not more orbs (a couple of them you can’t miss)
