It also has a Haunted High School , Library and Former Police Station
But why so many haunted places in such a small area?
A friend of mine Mark (Drake) Bowan the Director of Oakmont Paranormal Society has been investigating this area particularly the Library for many years now and may have some answers on the Library as it is believed it was built over a former cemetery and all of the graves might not have been moved. when the library and park where built .
One of my institutional customers at one time Holy Family Institute rented the former St Micheal's
High school near by the Library and it too is rumored to be haunted as many people claim to have seen shadows moving about the floors
Then there is the haunted Police station which would often creep out the night dispatcher.
No longer in use and falling down it still attracts ghost hunters who want to explore it. and its strange noises.
Homestead has seen its hard times and is slowly rebuilding and hopefully what has started along the waterfront will continue on up the hill to the whole community but till then it will be crime ridden and full of abandoned structures which is a shame for this once very proud community.
