objects being mysteriously "relocated" or objects flying across the

building, which burned down about 20 years ago. Finally, on the northern-most
part of the field is another building, which was part of the other two, which
has since been remodeled into the local school districts office. The point
behind all of this, is that these buildings were once used as offices,
dormitory's and also a TB hospital and sanitarium by the U.S. Calvary during
the early settlement days. This area was called "Ft. Lapwai". The
building has now been remodeled-extensively- and contains a total of 11 head
start classes, with 4 of those classes for the ages of 0-3 years. it is these
downstairs, baby rooms that have some of the most "activity" one
particular incident occurred about a year ago, conveniently around Halloween!
The last persons out of the building are usually the janitors. They usually run
a check thru to make sure all of the night. early the next morning, the first
person downstairs in the morning is the lead teacher. When he arrived in the
morning, there was children's reading books, put into two separate lines on the
floor, side-by-side, leading from one room to the office. No one had been in
the building, nothing was missing, toys are often found as if they had been
played with-after they had been put away, lights have been witnessed
downstairs, apparitions have been seen, rocking chairs move without anyone in
them, and other strange occurrences. Other rooms also ha ve activity, but one
room seems to have the most.

in the theatre which used to be a church. Also that night the janitor

youngest girl climb up the stairs. She will also play tricks on you. There is
also a phantasm there of a woman who was left at the altar when it was a
church. You can see her roam through the seats crying. Also one of the old
directors who passed away will sometimes come in late at night and sit down to
watch a play. Strange feeling can be felt all around. September 2004 addition:
there are, at any given time, no less than 70 spirits in the theatre. There's a
trap door in the light booth that goes up to the rafters that has opened on its
own. Lights turn on and off on their own. The chandelier spins in one direction
for ten minutes, stops for five, and starts spinning is the same direction.
Visitors lit candles on stage. Some blew out on their own. The ones that didn't
blow out didn't burn when you put your hand in the flame. There was wailing
that started from stage right and moved inhumanly fast to stage left.
Floorboards move inexplicably. All the spirits there are harmless, of course,
but it's still an exhilerating experience.
