Winston County Courthouse

I worked there as a jailor in the county jail there in the old part when it was on the 2nd floor. Had several experiences: a padlock moving on its own, and you can feel like there are a lot of people in the hallways late at night when no one is there, and one night I got a bag of chips out of snack machine and felt a cold breeze go by and something grab my bag of chips and threw them down the hallway. Always feel like something watching you even in the new part which is a courtroom now.

  2. when me and my friends went into to investigate we saw a padlock move but very slow me and my friends said it was the wind and since it says it on the site maybe it was not the wind but we also and me and my friends felt like someone was watching us and felt like there was something standing next to us and me and my friend felt a cold breeze that ran past us and there was a chip bag on the ground that got thrown but we did not know how that bag got on the ground
