It's unusally quite here tonight, I told the first shift worker about the banging and the doors, her name is Patty, she is our senior employee, Patty
is 68 years old and has worked in hotels for 20+ years. I really haven't ever mentioned to Patty about the things going on here, she knows about 129
because pretty much everyone here has had an experience with that room, day workers included, and I wasn't leaning toward something paranormal when I
mentioned it to Patty, but she kept her wise demeanor and just stated that it is most likely the ghosts in here. I didn't say anything right away and
Patty said 'you know it's haunted in here don't you?' . I must have looked sick right then cause she asked me if I was ok, and apologized for
saying that, she said 'I'm sorry, I shouldn't have said that, you are here all night by yourself' , but I told her it was ok, that it kind of
stunned me that she said that, and that I was interested in what was going on even if it scares me, and she starts telling me that she worked here on
3rd, 18 years ago, she talked about cold spots, lights going off and on, BANGING sounds down at the elevator,voices, she said that happens even in the
daytime now, she told me that back then the bar was open and going strong, and every night there would be a real bad fight , at least one or more. Of
course people get drunk and fight at bars, but Patty said she always felt like it was because of negativity here, left behind from the civil war days.
One of the same things I have found out is a part of the history of this particular piece of land, while trying to find out what is going on here
myself. She said all of what she has seen and heard here was pretty harmless, but eventually led to her leaving this job for another hotel. She wound
up back in this building 6 years ago, she runs our first shift.
I have had my ususal shadows following me tonight through the breakfast area, it is like after I have completely crossed the room, a big shadow
crosses the wall. Always freaks me out. And I always, that first trip across the room to hit the lights, feel like someone is directly behind me. I
got the you-know-what scared out of me coming out of the room tonight though, not a ghost, apparently this homeless guy had been in the bathroom all
night, he must have come in during 2nd shift and just stayed in the bathroom, I went to come out of the breakfast room to put coffee in the stands and
he stepped around the corner, I just about had a heart attack!!!! I dropped one of the thermoses, and he just started apoligizing for scaring me, I
near yelled at him to leave, he took off. This is not something you want to run in to in any hotel in the wee morning hours, a big black guy in a
hoodie coming out of an area where no one should be, but in a hotel like this one, it's REALLY not a good idea!
