I was in Nysdocs Ogdensburg facility housed in the old buildings that were part of the original mental institution and every night I would hear footsteps upstairs from the dorm I was located in which was vacant .|
A couple correctional officers verified there was no one making rounds up in that part of the building.

It seemed like every night someone would grab my ankles. I would awaken and no one would be there. I truly believe this place is haunted by the mental patients who died there.

Comment by Johnnyopps8: Was there. Spent a year in the old building. Was looking to see if anyone else had anything to say about it and I will back you up. I had physical contact like that but even more so and it was also causing sleep paralysis often and things like showers turned on by themselves.
I believe the presence here in this part of the prison was a female and that it wanted attention. It came through the housing unit I was in between one and three am almost every morning. Phones came off the hook and windows opened in a part of the building closed down.
I used to listen to officers have conversations with each other about having to go hang up the phones and lock the windows. In the mess hall I was with two others and we saw an appearance of what we concluded was a ghost.
When an officer heard us describe location and appearance he got very upset shaken. He gave us a direct order to cease our conversation based in our description. I have been in the dirt floor basement section myself.
Immediate oppressive atmosphere and tingling cold patches. There were shackle based on the walls. Writing was etched in the walls like violent slogans. I was once threatened by eight guards with a beating in that basement.
It wasn't a joke they thought I was going to take it because they knew I had before. It's quite probable there are spirits related to both it's time as a mental hospital and a prison. And for the record I have never made a public declaration or even told anyone but my wife about this in almost ten years.
I am not the type of person who believes nonsense. Yet I can't deny the experiences I had at the Ogdensburg correctional facility in 2008-2009.
My great granddad was the 1st Superintendent of the waterworks in Ogdensburg; he also ran a cabinet shop. His 4-year-old son drowned in the water there, and great granddad never got over this accident. Has anyone seen or heard a small child or an anguished older man from the 1700s near the dam there? email@example.com .
