Needless to say, we got out of there quick. I immediately got this scared weird feeling when we heard the footsteps like I wasn't supposed to be in there. As we were walking back to the car, I kept looking back thinking I'd see someone in the second floor windows. I didn't, but as I thought more into it, that front door was the only way in, and only way out the other doors were boarded up. (If what we heard were squatters or just someone in there the
front door wouldn't have been latched. ) Plus there wasn't any car around. Kind of scary.|

Very near Rose, about a mile south of 412 on the Mayes-Delaware county line road, is the Saline Courthouse. Historically a ''Cherokee Nation Courthouse'' that goes back to before statehood. Many were sentenced and even hanged on that property. There was at one time several buildings and a small community, of sorts, surrounding the courthouse. The immediate vicinity was also the scene of a shoot out that killed some people. Long abandoned, it has been a residence, bar, and dance hall.
A few years ago my fiancÚ, my daughter and I found the building open one day and explored inside. The two-story building has a ''feeling'' about it from the outside and that ''feeling'' is only increased when inside it.
We had been walking through the building and had stopped at the foot of the stairs while entering the ground floor northern most room. Above us we could hear walking across the wooden floor of second floor. Creepy, amazing, and just downright cool. We had been all through the second floor rooms and were even able to see into the attic because of a ladder that some workers had left behind. The three of us knew there was nobody up there.
