  1. It’s not just Gillis who haunts the house. Several people, including me, have reported seeing a woman dressed in a white dress sitting at the window in the spire. She is always just looking out the window at the street below with little to no reaction. If anything, she seems sad. She has been seen even when the house is vacant or going through renovation.

  2. I saw the woman in white! I called the cops who joked it was the ghost. The house is still being remodeled, it’s a beautiful purple now and is an airBNB.
