  1. I know what I saw. Rented a home over Christmas in Olympia. Between 6 and 7 am on New Year’s Eve I witnessed a very young boy leave the upstairs bathroom very rapidly dressed in a white shirt and dark pants (no legs or feet visible as if rapidly floating). One family member asked why I came into his room and stroked his hair. Another asked why I was sitting in a downstairs chair in the middle of the night. I do not sleep walk.

  2. i went there for Halloween one year with my friends cause he had this thing were there was hot chocolate and smore’s but nobody was allowed inside

  3. Glad I read this. Thought I was going nuts. I rented a home over Christmas 2019 a couple of blocks from the Capital. On New Year’s day morning, I saw out of the corner of my eye, what appeared to be a small boy wearing blue and white. I saw no legs or face and he was exiting the bathroom next to my room. It was moving on a tilted slant quite fast and off the floor. I told my adult children what I saw and was then was asked if I got up in the middle of the night , entered my son’s bedroom, and was stroking his hair. That never happened. Creepy

  4. I am nervous to see ghosts at my house… at night I keep on being cold and see the swing in the living room move… :(|
