I lived in Peekskill between 1994-1997. Then next to the old Peekskill Middle School there was an abandoned high school that burned. We called it Drum Hill. My friends and I used to go in there at least 3 times a week just scoping the place out and fooling around.
I always saw a man standing at the bottom of the main staircase. My friend S. was swinging from a very secure metal wire hanging through 2 stories, it broke dead center for absolutely
no reason. We inspected it immediately.|
No tears no threads. In the building's basement my friend j. felt the presence of at least 3 spirits and none
of them necessarily friendly. This was a macabre place with a jaded history. If not the building alone the grounds it stood on.|
It was called Drum Hill High School because of the haunting sounds of Civil War drums echoing in the night air.

Comment by Leonard: I attended Drum Hill during the early 1960's. It did not burn down. I has been turned into apartments for senior citizens.
