Homestead a town with many Haunted structures and scene of tragic labor strike which resulted in deaths

Homestead Pa. a river town near Pittsburgh  was once the site of a very large US Steel mill where a bloody labor  battle in the  late 1800's resulted in many deaths. But thats not what sets Homestead apart from most communities.
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

Now a Charter school  when I took care of it we had many strange false alarms and when camera tape was reviewed we often saw strange flashes of light when alarm would go off  which went un explained. thou in Munhall its right on the line many people mistake the area for being part of Homestead .

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.

Playful Ghost watches over Photo Museum on Pittsburghs North Side ?

A customer and friend of mine Bruce Klein over the years expanded his fathers photography business
Bernies Photo on the North side of Pittsburgh  into several buildings along E. Ohio Street  and he started several sub business one of which is Photo Antiquities

a Museum of Photographic History .

You can see  historic photos and cameras from the beginning of photography to the present in several rooms on 2 floors  in the museum which took Bruce many years to accumulate and then be able to display.

However some of us who work there and guests claim they felt a presence of some one watching them  or seeing shadows and during the building of the museum many times tools and items left on the steps would all of a sudden come rolling down by themselves and items seem to disappear and reappear. One group of lady's  touring by themselves  commented on the nice harpsichord music playing the one day when the stereo system was not on  and only had a classical CD in it. 
and I recently found out about a horrifc car explosion which killed 3 people on the street right in front of the place in the 50s' when a estranged husband killed his wife and a passerby with a car bomb

 and a robbery of a tailor in the right side 1st floor shop when a tailor worked there

While Bruce is quick to dismiss all this as nonsense as the building is very old and creaky by it self  others feel there really is a presence there. Possibly a former business owner or tenant  watching the place or possibly one of the many Civil War Generals who are displayed on the upper floor.

Well if there is really no paranormal activity going on you will certainly find all kinds of fascinating things to see and Bruce hopes to some day move the museum up the street to better accommodate guests.
