I lived in Oshkosh since I was 4 and moved to Clintonville when I turned 16. Growing up I always heard stories about haunted places in the middle of the city, none more famous then the legends of the Grand Opera House.
Now my story isn't so much a ghost story than it is a angel story because when you walk into the opera house's balcony you can see clear as day the painting of the small angels on the ceiling. In high school I was both in choir and the band so I frequented the opera house quite a lot.
One night one of the volunteer ushers saw me looking at the ceiling before one of my band performances. I was probably 13 or 14 at the time and he sat me aside and said 'there's an old myth about that painting. If you count all the angels before a performance you'll always end up seeing 13 angels. But if you count them again when the performance is over you'll end up counting 12. One angel always disappears.'|
Being the kid I was back then I kind of' back sassed him and replied 'well has anyone ever counted and gotten one extra angel? ' picking up on my sarcasm he just laughed and said 'why don't you give it a try'.
Well I thought why not. Sure enough I counted and I got 13 angels and when I turned around to tell him he was gone. I kept telling myself that he just slipped away just to scare me and I just let it go and went backstage.
After the band and me where finished I went back to the balcony and counted the angels again. I nearly fell over the rails. I counted 14. There was one more angel and I knew it wasn't there before because I saw that ceiling a hundred times.
