      Me and a friend were riding mopeds around town and he showed where the Pythian castle was and we walked up to door and looked in for about 20 seconds and then we both herd a loud banging noise from the floor right above the entrance. We bolted out of the area. This was around midnight also. The park close to it also I’ve felt presences there also but never seen anthing though.

    3. We were at the pythian castle on a private investigation one night when we were about to go into the steam tunnel we got a evp of a male voice saying “Get out”.The weird thing is that we went down in the steam tunnel when there was a evp of a man saying get out.We didn’t know that we had a evp of get out until we got home.The same night me and my sister were up in the tower room asking questions when my sister got her ear blown into,i was by the window looking out spacing out when all of sudden my sister runs down the stairs.I was in the tower room by myself.To this day my sister doesn’t remember how she made all the down the staries with out tripping.Everything we go a private investigation my sister does not want to go up to the Tower Room to face her fears.When we was in the boiler room by the entrance of the steam tunnel we heard a pair high heels shoes walking down the stairs but you got top remember that there were no stairs in the boiler room and there was nobody wearing highn heels shoes that night.In the Green Room behind the theatre my sister camera battery was almost dead but she said that she charged it at her work.After that we went into the living room,sat down my sister checked it again and it full charged.

    4. I was drawn to this soldiers coat. It was Veteran’s Day 2017. and it looks like the coat is moving…took this with my digital camera….and I was standing still. it was toward the end of the night, and I was barely moving…everything is in focus but the coat.
