“I heard our ghost one time when I was about 15. I was on the third floor in the west
hall which runs north/south. It was about 3 in the afternoon and I heard the sound of a man
in heavy boots run five steps up to the top of our 8th street stair well. I realized I was the
only one up there. Gathering my courage I proceeded to the 8th street stair well. I was
indeed alone on the third floor. I left quickly. -Brian Jr” Owner of Barber.
