The 1883 Griggs Mansion was turned into apartments, and then an art school in 1939. It has many ghosts, including a maid who hanged herself on the fourth floor landing in 1915; gardener Charles Wade, who has been heard flipping through books in the library; a thin man in a black suit and top hat; a child who has been seen floating above a bed; and a teenage girl named Amy. Besides apparitions, many other phenomena have been reported here, such as doors and windows opening by themselves, footsteps, coughs and shattering light bulbs.
