Soldiers Memorial Theatre

You are here Home  > Theaters >  Soldiers Memorial Theatre

Built 1931-32, the theater is believed to lie near a Civil War-era cemetery, although this fact doesn’t seem to have to do with the hauntings here. Witnesses say they’ve seen an apparition of a man in his 60s wearing 1930s clothes. Also, ghosts and sounds of children playing have been seen and heard, as well as mysterious saxophone music.
