I just recently found this Forum, and I wanted to see what anyone's thoughts are regarding my experience(s) while working at a business in my hometown. I have spent a lot of time thinking about my experiences recently since it appears that the building in which the business was located appears to be scheduled for demolition. I also was told about a week ago that there are plans to build a hotel on the site - so, I am assuming that the new development is the reason for the building being slated for demolition. All of these events happened sometime between 1992 and 1994. I worked a manager for this business located in downtown Savannah, GA. While I don't want to give the name of the business, I will tell you that the position that I held required me to come into the building VERY early in the morning - approximately between 5:30am and 6am, and, sometimes, I had to stay late or return late at night if there were alarm calls from the security system being tripped, which were often. When I first began working at this location (note that I had worked for this same company for about 8 years before I was promoted to the management position at this location), I always felt uncomfortable and edgy. The building in which the business was housed was built at two different times, the largest portion of the building was built in the late 1800s while the add-on "storefront" section was added in the 1920s. The portion of the building that was built in the 1800s had cold-spots, and I always felt as though I were being watched. Items would be inexplicably moved around from one place or another, and this occurred constantly. Light bulbs in the more "scary" portions of the building - some dark hallways we always called "the catacombs" would constantly blow out. My father, who was an electrician by trade, came and checked the wiring and could find no explanation for the light bulbs constantly blowing out. One morning, when I went in very early in the morning and was turning on the lights in the dark building, "something" tapped me on my shoulder, but there was no one there but me. Some time later, I had an employee come to me and tell me that she felt uncomfortable working in there after dark as "something or someone" would call her name. I had another employee come to me later and said that she didn't feel comfortable either as the place "spooked" her. I had heard that several people in the long-distant past had died in the building (the section of it from the 1800s) , one of which was a suicide. There came a day when a storm was coming, and the power had gone out. I was in the building with one of my employees trying to close for the day due to the power outage and the impending storm. We started hearing noises from overhead. This business always had heavy "equipment" running except for very early in the morning, but I had never heard noises such as these previously - not even early in the morning. It sounded like someone beating on the roof or one of the many heavy metal doors. We weren't able to locate anything outside, so we started searching for the source of the sounds. We ended up the back part of the building after passing through the dark corridors/hallways. We located a stairway that neither of us even knew existed, and my employee kind of froze. I followed her gaze up this stairway (we were NOT going to attempt to navigate the stairway due to various blockages of stairs themselves) and that's when I saw it. It was an apparition of a man with "glowing" eyes. He appeared to be dressed in some sort of very old military uniform (maybe Revolutionary or Civil War era) and had a musket with what appeared to be a bayonet on the end. I'm so sorry, but we just ran. I locked the doors, we got in my car, and we took off. Various other things would occur at night in this place - like equipment coming on in the middle of the night on it's own accord, which is what caused some of the night-alarm calls to which I had to respond, being the store manager. I was totally freaked out after seeing the apparition, and I asked to be transferred. My transfer came through within about 6 weeks when a manager left one of our other locations. I breathed a sigh of relief. I company that I worked for has been out of business for some time, and other businesses have been located in the same building since my employer closed that location - sometime around 2007 or 2009. After I left this location, I spoke with the new store manager, and he saw the same apparition within 8 weeks of him being assigned to that location. Being that the building wasn't built until the late 1800s with the add-on constructed in the 1920s, I'm thinking that the "haunting" of this business may not be linked to the building, but to the land. Does anyone have any thoughts on this?
