La Grange, California Ghost Sightings
I saw the people in the cave. The school is still there and whatever is there is not as you described. I'll take you to the real places. I'll take you to the cave . I'll also back up what you will see with money. I've taken 12 friends there. All thought I was crazy or lying. All believed when we left.|

Most of my experiences were in the 1980s when I lived with my family as a child. They centered in the area of the terrace above highway 132 and the main part of town between the elementary school and the cemetery on the west side of Floto Street near the old school house. I encountered multiple shadow figures as well as some solid masses in these areas at dusk and after dark. I saw one gentleman spirit as a full-body apparition regularly in the vicinity of the old school house and old wooden home that was demolished on the Hillside in 1985. He wore taupe colored slacks with a red leather belt, worn brown leather boots, a long-sleeve faded red linen shirt, and a tan hat. He looked to be in his later 30s to early 40s with a reddish brown beard. I sometimes saw him with tools and am pretty sure he was a miner or was in a related trade. When I did see him, he would typically smile and walk towards me to interact like he was going to pick up his own child. He would speak, but I cannot remember anything he said, any accent he had, or any names he used to try and place him.
I remember one time when he tried to interact. He conveyed a story to me about how he died. He did not speak it; he just shared the vision and feeling. It scared me enough that I thought he would come into the house and bother me. I would only go to sleep in my parent's bed for over a year. They would have to carry me to my room to put me to bed after I had already gone to sleep. I never told them why I did not want to fall asleep alone. They probably just assumed it was me being afraid of the dark or some boogie man in my imagination.
I am glad I had these experiences. They allowed me to continue to keep an open mind when it comes to spirituality. I understand that there is a continuous energy force that we are all a part of, no matter what your faith or anyone else's faith calls it. Some people choose to move on right away, and others decide to linger to tell their story or because they are so attached to a place, objects, or events that they cannot let go. I have thought about going back to see if he is still there. Maybe some time I will.

Comment by Suze: Thank you for sharing Andrea! Truly a nice story even though it frightened you as a child it kept you open to learning and experiencing. I have had many super natural experiences since the age of 17. Only a couple ever frightened me. The others were like you said spiritually broadening.
