Staunton Theater Ghost Story

 

Yesterday I wrote about the little girl that haunts a Staunton Virginia theater.  There is a little more to the story and another story about a male ghost on the premises!

Sometimes rolls of coins would disappear and then show up in stacks and patterns in the projectionist room. It looked as though the ghost was playing with them. The girl seemed to be most active in the upper story and the projectionist room.

A tall man dressed in a Victorian suit has been seen in what was the orchestra pit.  The suit did not fit.  It was too tight across the shoulders. As I mentioned yesterday, the theater was originally an opera house.

I found this story online at Ghosts of America.

Staunton Theater Ghost Story

 

The Gypsy 4 Theater of Staunton was once an Opera House. A fire broke out in the mid 1900’s and significant damage was done to the building.

According to a former projectionist, very strange things have happened there.  Once while threading a movie the person’s eight inch braid was lifted straight up in the air.

A young blond girl, dressed in white and about eight years old was sitting on the pallet playing with the projectionist’s hair!  She silently laughed and vanished.  The projectionist’s mother

claimed to have run ins with the girl also, and she is a skeptic concerning paranormal sitings.

I found this ghost story on Ghosts of America online publication.

 

Life with The Bird and Word Man – Clyde Kessler

I have mentioned several times that my naturalist husband is uploading bird sightings to Cornell University.  Yesterday he told me he is ranked 10th in the country for this information.  In a number of blogs I wrote he is uploading over 2000 files.

I don’t know how I got that so wrong!  He has already uploaded 15,000 files and says he has over 30,000!  Wow!
