Formerly a funeral home and a furniture store, the basement of this 1883 building is particularly haunted. Visitors to the cellar have felt cold spots and an eerie presence, while the sound of the intercom that was disconnected many years ago has been heard on occasions.

  1. The communication with my assigned writer from killer papers was excellent. They understood the brief and were open to feedback, ensuring the essay was tailored to my exact needs. The essay I received was well-written, insightful, and it adhered to all the academic standards. It was clear that the writer put in a lot of effort and research.
