There once was a cranky old women who left her husband and dog home alone all day to become the director of a museum. She was fairly normal, except for being cranky and occasionally being a bit bitchy.
She did not believe in ghosts. Well maybe she did just a little, she had seen a ghost of a person once and a ghost of a dog..but they were dead ghosts…just there fleetingly for a few seconds. Those ghosts were not a problem.
The cranky old lady encountered some strange things..doors opened that had been locked…(It really freaked her out and she thought she might be crazy.) Things that were in one place moved to another place..spooky. Sometimes she swore that something was out to frighten her away. ( She is usually not a chicken or a screamer or a fraidy cat unless it involves snakes.)
Then one day..one of her many bosses ( that is a nightmare in itself) told her about the resident ghost. It seems that the building is notorious for being haunted.
The cranky old woman was a bit suspicious after finding Ghost Hunters business cards in her desk and cards for séances..she thought it was a tad strange. ( Actually she thought ..what in the world have I gotten myself into?)
Her grandchildren thought it was way cool that she actually worked in a place that was haunted. They all agreed that it was haunted, one grand was so scared that she didn’t want to go downstairs to the “scary” bathroom all by herself.
Yes, it was verified through many sources that Peter or Gus the Ghost as he is called has been haunting the old courthouse for years. For about 68 years to be precise and that the Ghost Hunters were there with their special cameras and they have asked for permission to come back again sometime because their results were inconclusive.
So I work with a freaking ghost..a mischievous one..lately he turns lights on and off and sets off the security alarm at night with his wild parties. He is a nuisance ghost.
Do you think that one of the cranky old woman's many ( seven) bosses should have mentioned it?
The old volunteers know all about Gus the Ghost..the new ones not so much..I am afraid I may scare them all away.
This is as much of the real story as I know.
He was a tormented soul, he only had one arm. His only son was killed during World War Two. He was the boiler operator at the courthouse, one night in 1943 or 1944 he had enough of this world and hung himself. Local children were walking past the Courthouse on the way to school and saw his body through one of the windows.
This may or may not be the window..it is the only one that I think it can be. In a few weeks this room will be cleared out..we have an old jail cell that is going to occupy this room..I can only imagine what fun Gus will have with the workers in that room:)
