Built in 1924, this historic hall is said to be haunted by a few ghosts. Apparitions have been witnessed, including one man dressed in a 1940s suit and another who appears on the balcony as if watching a show. He applauds, then vanishes. And if you visit the men’s restroom, don’t be surprised if you hear disembodied voices discussing legal affairs.

  1. I was there on a security patrol and I saw a an old man on the balcony so I told my commanding officer that there was someone up there. Then he looked and he saw nothing.

  2. I was in hanford for the day with my family and it was starting to get a little dark and on the 2nd to last pillar outside i saw what looked like an older man and i said how is you day then i looked away for 2 seconds and he was gone no where to be seen

  3. I would like to know who are the property owners or agents to that property to ask for permission for my paranormal team to set up an investigation. Anyone knows? I had been searching with no results. Thank you.
