A seance was held in an effort to communicate with a dead civil war soldier. There was a lot of weird stuff happening at the seance, including flickering lights, shaking plates, sulfur smells, demons and things like that. A few days later, demons appeared in the shape of glowing gargoyles on the top floors. 5 or so participants in the seance died the following year.
Also, there’s a really creepy statue of a huge cherubic face on the front lawn. It has a hole in the forehead with a warped mirror inside. Spooky.
