Allegedly haunted by a female ghost who has a preference for riding the elevators and who will apparently often use them, sending them independently to different floors. Some workers in the building have claimed to have seen an unknown female walking through their office and when they follow her to confront or speak to the strange woman she vanishes around a corner.

  1. My husband was in the elevator yesterday heading to the ground floor, it stopped randomly at a floor on the way down but nobody was there to get on, then he felt a swoosh of cold air, the hair on the back of his neck stood up, the door closed and down they went..he was a little freaked out! He turned to the lady that was in the elevator with him and said, well, I guess someone just got on! She said, yeah, it happens a lot here…

  2. I work at the time and temp as security and the elevator just kept going up and down and opening at the ground floor an no one was on it.
