    1. I have family that stay right behind this building I have heard foot steps behind me as I walk pass at night and have heard the screams of the child did not know it was a little girl until now you will definitely get an eerie feeling walking pass there at night

    2. My sister and family moved to Destin a few years ago. Shortly after, my nephew was in his room and was alone and talking. I asked him who was he talking to. He said a little girl and her name was Sally. So always wondered if there was a ghost of a little girl named Sally roaming around Destin……..

    3. I worked here years ago, about 14 maybe. I heard things numerous times, before she showed herself to me. Mostly in the bathroom and kitchen area of the facility. It’s funny how the sites I look up have her name on them. I talked to her, and asked her to tell me her name. She never did, so I named her Sally Mae….yes, I named her. At that point, everyone started calling her Sally Mae. She isn’t mean spirited at all, at least not to me she wasn’t. She would do little things like, make the coffee cups shoot out of the holder onto the floor. She would giggle. I’m also the one who asked a guy who knew an older volunteer fireman about her and the area. She mostly hung out in the women’s bathroom. He found out through the older man, that there was an unsolved murder that occurred in that very spot years and years ago. They found her in the spot which is now the women’s bathroom. I’ve been gone for years, but I still think about her. She always let me know she was around. I wonder if she misses me messing with her.
