My dad lived there as a patient for 7 years. I spent a lot of time there. I never, ever, once saw or heard anything even remotely spooky. I never heard the staff or other patients complain, either.

Starting my own group, just a couple of my friends. We are looking for places to start of small and work from there.

I would like some insight on how to start my own group as well. I want to everything by the book and not step on anyone toes. If you can help me with anything I would be very thankful.

I worked at Paint Branch in the late 70's, early 80's, my mother in law Mrs Pierce had worked for the Storks for decades, she was a non believer, and admitted she had heard and seen things, over the years, she swore after Mr Storck Sr, passed, that she heard him late into the night in the upstairs office....ask any employee who worked there, and they'll admit to strange things happening....remember, Not only did years of slaves die there, but numerous patients as well
