  • Didn't get much sleep that night

    After spending most of the day touring Pleasant Hill, we stayed overnight in 1998 in one of the upstairs guest rooms in a building that had housed the elderly adults of the Shaker community. Sleeping on an old-fashioned rope bed is not the most comfortable to begin with, but what really made it hard to sleep was the sound of footsteps out in the hallway and muffled voices throughout the night. I thought it was the sound of other visitors. The next morning I found out we were the only people who had stayed in the building that night.

  • Ghost children

    First I’ll apologize because I’m about to tell on myself: they had closed off the upper rooms where the children used to have bedrooms (above the mess hall) but I snuck in anyway to have a peak. It was bare besides some wooden furniture, as I stood in the middle of the room I heard children laughing playfully and felt / heard them running around me on the floorboards. I went back down after the experience to count for all the children currently in the house and the only other child was a newborn baby strapped to a parents chest. It was a nice encounter overall, it was not a malicious presence.

    Very active spirit by the name Polly. Foot steps, doors opening and closing and rocking chairs moving all night! We would love to go back!
