Hey,
Im new to ghost village but I thought I would give it a try.My name is Jeremy and im 16.I work at an old theatre.Ive worked there for three years and its kind of scary.One day i decided to explore the old building (which was built in like 1901) and i went down this old hallway and then you turn the corner and theres this staircase,well it goes down to an old door and I wondered for a while what the door was to.So I asked the managing director and she said it went to an old nursery back in the 1930's.She also told me that before it was a room they used to make coffins for the small town.Well once I had learned that I didnt go around the staircase much after that until one day i was carrying some scripts to a room past the staircase,well sure enough a script slides off the top of the box(it was overflowing with scripts)and falls on the first landing of the staircase.Well I set the box down and go after it.When i got to the landing I bent down and picked it up and then heard a knock like someone knocking and then i heard like a little kid laugh,(it sounds weird but its true)it freaked me out so I was out of there.I didnt go to the staircase much after that,but I still wondered what the knocking sound was so I decided to check out the library's news paper collection.There was an article in an old paper about a little boy who had died in 1928 after his ball bounced down the stairs and he went to get it,only to fall.They shut down the nursery shortly after.His name was Isaac.
So I still wonder if the knocking I heard was the ball bouncing or if the laugh I heard was Isaac's.

Tell me what you think
Thanks, Jeremy

Welcome to Ghost Village Jeremy. That old theatre sounds like a neat place to work in. Don't be afraid, as is sounds like something that is not going to harm you. That was interesting what you found out about Isaac. It could possibly be his spirit running around, laughing and playing ball. If you get some spare time, you should go back to that spot and investigate a little more. It would be great to take some photos of that area and see if anything unusual comes out in them.

Hi Jeremy, :wave:
Interesting story! Thanks for sharing it with us!!!

I like GhostCat's suggestion of possibly going back and taking pictures. Perhaps, if you are comfortable with it, you might also bring along a tape recorder, a ball, and a friend (for moral suppot...LOL). :Spaz:
Hang out for 20 or 30 minutes if you can and see if anything turns up either on tape or in a picture... :Spaz:

~Welcome to Ghost Village, Jeremy!! In my town here in Indiana, our local movie theater (our only theater) is haunted by a spirit of a little boy as well. If anything else, he's a playful sort. So if I were you, I wouldn't be too spooked as he'll probably look to you as a play-mate & it might be something you enjoy. Keep us posted on everything you encounter...and I liked the idea that you did history of the theater.

Hi Jeremy
Welcome to GV, I really like you story, yes its posible that you had an encounter with Isaac, I don't think he would harm you in any way, and I agree with the sugestion of going back and see if you can catch something on film... but is up to you, there is no reason to be afraid.

Enjoy your stay

Welcome to the Village! As you can see, we are a community of peole gathered to discuss and advise in situations much like what you are facing. A digital camera, a tape recorder and a ball (excellent suggestion BTW!) and you might come up with some interesting results! I know it is easier said than done, but when dealing with this phenomenom, don't be afraid! Your not trying to disrupt Issac's environment, just observe! I have had similiar experiences in a theater in my town. Built in the mid 20's, it has numerous spirits and strange happenings, most of them benign in nature. If you do decide to investigate, post back to us and someone will help you with getting the data you collect onto this site! Good Luck, Villager! :P

I spoke with a fellow Villager who lives close to Gutherie. He has a contact that may have more information about the Pollard. As it becomes available to me, I will post back to you!
