The Haunted Plaza Court

This is one of my favorite buildings in town, and it's home to a handful of successful businesses - including my favorite hamburger joint, a wonderful bakery, a pub, and a YMCA. But rumor has it that if you find yourself here alone at night, you will hear other people in the hallways. The story as I heard it was this: Many decades ago, in the early 1900s, this building was host to a fraudulent and popular doctor. People put their faith in him to heal them of their cancers and other serious illnesses, when he in fact was only taking their money and putting on a show... so that a number of patients died of their diseases without ever having received proper care. And they are still there, looking for their treatment.
