Renton, Washington Ghost Sightings
Twenty years ago my husband and I lived in a big old yellow house in the 1300 block of Kennewick NE in Renton. When you stood on the steps before entering you could hear voices, whispering, and sounds like a group of people were having a party going on. As soon as you put the key in they stopped. When you opened the door there was no one in the house. We had a friend stay overnight. He asked in the morning if we called for him last night Johnny Johnny.
No, we hadn't. To this day he remembers it like yesterday. There was a basement that I didn't like to go down to. People live there now with our friendly
ghosts. They never hurt anyone.|

Renton, Washington's ghostly secrets run deep literally. An early industry of Renton was coal mining, and there are some estimates that abandoned mine shafts total over 200 miles in length and reach a depth of 700 feet below sea level. There is bronze plaque on the old remaining foundations of the Tipple Tower on Bronson just next to the freeway that attests to the past days. The shafts are sealed off now and perhaps flooded, but to dig these tunnels took their toll in human life. Some victims were never recovered from the explosions and cave in's, but those who were mangled and dying were taken to Renton's first hospital to ease their suffering and perhaps to recover or perhaps to die.
The hospital building still exists and now is wooden two-story apartment building on Morris Avenue just to the south of Why Too Grocery on 3rd Street. This past vortex of such emotional energy may or may not be subject to any spectral episodes. It must be remembered that this building had a noble purpose to help those who were suffering and also the happy events of babies being born. However, it would be interesting to hear any comments of any Renton resident who may have a ghostly tale to tell of this building.
