A friend of mine in a local band rented a house which had belonged to the Disbrow family (they were an old lumber family). He rented the downstairs part of the house. His friend rented the upstairs part. It apparently had a widow's walk.
There was a story or rumor that someone had jumped or was hanged from the widow's walk. This house had very ornate 19th century woodwork and one of those old wooden gothic-looking staircases. My friend and I were talking on he first floor one day with me having my right arm propped up on he doorjam.
Something seemed to duck in and out of one room and go into another - I would describe it as a blurry-looking softball. It was also a little like the three stooges film in which the owl gets in the old skull and dive-bombs the stooges in he room.|
I didn't feel threatened but I asked my friend what was going on. He said it was the host... gg..host.. what ghost I asked. My friend eventually moved out of the house and the house was torn down in the 1980s.

There is a big white house on 18th Ave. and north 3rd St. which is sort of gothic looking. It was once known as the Cotton House. It had one door on the side, apparently to the basement which we would avoid as little kids -- We apparently watched too much of the Andy Griffith Show - Haunted House Episode. A family of lawyers lived in it later on in the 1970s. The mother got up in the middle of the night and claimed she saw a woman in white materialize in a doorway or hallway. They later moved out. It's essentially a nice big old house, but it kind of reminds you of the money-pit. It costs an awful lot to heat.
