Back when the building served as a schoolhouse, the ashes of a little girl was buried there. She has been seen on several occasions on the second floor of the building, looking out of the windows into the street. The ghost a woman in a white dress frequents the stairway, and regularly appears to visitors to the building. Disembodied footsteps and objects moving around by themselves have also been reported by members of the historical society.

  1. I am doing a project in my class and i would like to investigate if it is really active. Would it be alright if i am able to so, and if i am how old is the young girl?

  2. Years and Years ago I’d used to walk from sycamore street about 3 blocks away close by the RIALTO HISTORICAL SITE from my ex girlfriend house going back home but I would only take the route on that corner crossing RIVERSIDE AVE walking only once in a great while at first it would be nothing then over time slowly it felt something was there like an eerie feeling didn’t think of it much but later in time I started getting the feeling I was been watched by something from it’s windows by the sidewalk and stop sign . But what gets me wondering till this day is that I heard this frightening overwhelming unspeakable screams as of a little boy but more like a little girl like a preteen but truly got me thinking and my attention is something was more extremely scared of me than me been scared of the screams itself at that time I thought I was a tough invididual macho wise fearless but those screams made wonder maybe there is something beyond our knowledge of this reality such as other realms this makes me thinkSOCIETY of an existing loving God which I truly believe exists that only the truly open minded would seek even though it can be beyond our knowledge. But those horrifying sounds I heard we’re into two separate times once about 2:30 am at a weekend which the worst scream and the other was at noon during a summer which was the only one that spooked me just a bit but like I said I thought I was macho but till very day I’m still surprised I remember those tiny frightening moments. The words that I can described is it feels something is stuck there as if there some kind of gateway parallel doorway to are realm but the fear was I felt was to great for to empathy because I could not recognize even something was trying frighten me or was just overmelming petrified of of me but suddenly as of as in snap of a finger it was gone in a fraction of second just like that left spooked momentarily as if time stopped and all reality was and time stopped and quite but only the RIALTO HISTORICAL SOCIETY matter at that moment for existence . This screams would scare anyone as if some horrible thing what ever it is really just lost as no matter how horrible those sounds sound. This makes think about GOD sometimes and this universe and what’s beyond of it’s edge of it.

  3. Back in 2014 I moved to Rialto and went out for a walk to explore the city. There was a building that caught my attention because of the architecture. I decided to look around and before leaving I took a picture of myself standing on front of the building. That night I went home and had a really bad nightmare.I dram of a young girl dressed in white chasing me. In my dream I was in panic, she caught up to me and began chocking me as I was loosing my breath I woke up trying to catch my breath and I couldn’t stop crying, The feeling was so vivid and emotional for me to forget. It was until two years later while looking at my pictures I decided to research the year that building was built when I came across an article talking about a girl’s ashes being buried there.
