  1. I went in there and felt something brush by me, and I blacked out. My sister said I had a blank expression on my face as I walked toward the window. When I was myself again I was in the bathroom in front of a mirror that said “HELP ME”. It freaked me out.

  2. I’ll be investigating there very soon. I’ve heard over the years that this was probably one of the most haunted buildings in the City. Apparitions rumored to be seen in the Windows of the building from those outside. Also rumored of a dog’s spirit and the basement a man or unknown force likes to touch women. And an elderly woman upstairs. Hopefully I’ll be able to find more information once I do my investigation.
