Old Post Office

This historic post office has many legends associated with it, and is rumoured to be one of the most haunted buildings in town. In the postmasters office, there is a ladder that leads to secret passages in the ceiling of the building, which the postmaster himself used to spy on employees. Visitors claim to have heard screams, moans and disembodied footsteps emanating from these passages, but upon investigation find nothing. In the post office basement, other sinister stories have been reported. While employees were removing a boiler, they discovered human bones, which were the buried under the basement floor. The basement level is also reportedly haunted by a former senator, who used it for exercise activities. Staff who venture down there alone have heard a ghostly voice counting out routines, and felt cold spots. And if there wasn’t enough hauntings surrounding this building already, there’s even more! The roof is allegedly haunted by a workman who slipped and fell to his death while conducting renovations. Passer-by’s on stormy nights have seen a shadowy figure falling from the dome, who vanishes before he hits the pavement.
