  1. I come here almost every Sunday. I once went in the Connecticut Room and it was SO filled with anxiety since i am a medium/sensitive I wouldn’t stop repeating My husband needs to come home, I have a daughter at home. I literally stopped right after I left the room. But I took care of that ghost 🙂 I don’t think its true that a student was raped there. I’ve never seen her anyway.
    And this place is FREE so you can get in there anytime 🙂
