in the area in 1918. The men were marking timber there for the Forestry
Service. It was dusk and they had made their campfire. Dorothy and John were
standing close to the road when they heard a hollow cough and looked up to see
a man walking down the road toward them. He walked past them, not looking to
the right or left, or at them. They could not hear his footsteps as he walked
by. It was very peculiar in those days for a stranger to be alone in the
mountains at dark without a horse or supplies. He would have approached the
fire to talk. But this person acted as though they weren't there. Charles M.
Scribner ran a stage line between Battle and Encampment. One of his drivers
quit because on one occasion a man approached his team of six horses, walked
right between them and disappeared. The horses reared and bolted and it was all
the driver could do to control them. He was sure it was the "Ghost of

report hearing strange voices in cells, seeing people disappear around corners,
and feeling hostile or tense presences. Employees have also reported
apparitions and sounds. There was recently an investigation by a group of
paranormal experts, but specifics were not revealed except in vague terms.
There are several hotbeds of activity in the prison, including the showers,
Death Row, the Gas Chamber, and the Hold (isolation area), and certain specific
cells, including one filled with the artwork of an inmate. Only recently
restored were the Chapel and women's facility, also suspected of paranormal
activity. Public functions are now held in the prison, including bazaars and
Halloween "haunted house" tours. During the bazaars, booths were set
up on ground level, near the shower area. The shower area was always
inexplicably cold, with a sense of malice. Many inmates were attacked in the
shower area. There are also tales of an inmate being unsuccessfully hanged a

janitors that have worked there have similar experiences, including strange
noises and moving objects. In two houses in particular, about 2 blocks away

moving objects, and have even recorded clear voices on a cassette tape hidden
in an upstairs bedroom while the family was away.

he reached the hallway, there was no one to be found! Another unexplained
happening happened around the same time when the Emergency Management Director
