I take students on trips to various historical places. In past, I have experienced paranormal at the hospital wing upstairs several times. I had heard loud bangs, orbs, and smell and experienced the feeling of being touched and mood swings while I visit this construction.
We visited the rock as a family a few years ago with two teenagers in our family. Walking through the jail house, we all noticed that it would get really cool and suddenly heat up. This was not gradual. It was one step cool, next step warm. We experienced pungent smells. The most frightening thing happened to me when I was standing at the top of the stairs.
