Warehouse Concert Venue

You are here Home  > Historical Buildings >  Warehouse Concert Venue

We have owned the building for 25 years, operating on the 2nd and 3rd floors as a non-alcohol concert venue. Building was built in 1888, and has in the past had various businesses such as clothing stores, tailor shops, harness shop, general store, with the 2nd floor being professional offices (attorney, realtor, dentist offices) and the 3rd floor being offices an a large ballroom.

The 2nd floor was largely unused from 1969-1991. In 1991 we started slowly rehabbing the building, as we operated the all-ages concert venue.

About 6 months after we opened, two of our very large intimidating bouncers saw a young girl floating at the end of a hall.

The security system that we had installed to monitor every door with electronic door contacts sometimes would indicate a door opening, followed by another door, then the next nearest door.

Then the girl started coming back more regularly.

Almost always when it was only one of us working, and exclusively when we were doing demolition work to ceilings or walls, or when we were sanding the original floors.

She would appear out of nowhere to watch what we were doing, then after 10-20 seconds, fade away.

We have not done any major building interior remodeling in the past couple years, and she has not been seen.

But she’s here, waiting.

  1. I was on the board of directors when we established the nonprofit or the Warehouse youth and music programs and had two unusual experiences there. The first time, I was sitting in an open area on the second floor waiting for other board members to arrive. I heard a strange click somewhere downstairs and then I heard the doors close elevator, which at the time was supposed to be locked off on the first floor. It hummed to life, and the bell rang as it arrived on the floor across the room from me. The doors opened and it felt as though the whole carriage just delivered a pool of cold air that flowed around the room and dissipated. The doors closed and it started moving again. When the others arrived, it was sitting locked-off with the doors open back on the first floor.
    The second time was after a meeting as I was locking up and leaving. I had stopped at the restroom on my way out and as I was just leaving to go back into the hall I felt something or someone step up very close behind me. So close I could feel the hairs on my neck move from the moving air. From that moment until I was down the stairs and opened the door to the busy sidewalk, I felt an overwhelming hostile, hateful, angry presence right behind me. I’ve been there a hundred times since and have never felt that presence again.

  2. Your shared articles, it is extremely detailed and meticulous, hope that next time you will have more wonderful stuff to share with visitors.
