This building once housed the Oriental Manor catering hall, a place for weddings and events. It was widely known by staff and locals that the hall was haunted by at least three spirits. People were constantly hearing disembodied footsteps, and doors would open and close on their own.
The building is now home to “American Place”, a discount department store. No word on whether or not the haunts persist to this day.
