Providence City Hall, say workers, is haunted by something who rides the elevator, moves chairs around, creates breezes, whispers, touches folks, slams doors, opens drawers and smokes cigars. Some speculate the ghost is a former mayor named Doyle. The site has been featured on an episode of TV’s Ghost Hunters.
