Columbia Court Apartments are listed in real estate rental properties as being Residential Apartments & Buildings, and as offering storage for Household Goods. Most of the basic, funky-looking units seen from the street remind one of motel rooms, as they are laid out east to west in a row. The two story unit is perpendicular to the line of units.
One source reports that these apartments have been around for 100 years, which means a lot of people have lived here in these units, who probably didn't have much wealth, looking at the small size of most of the units. Other names for these apartments over the years were The Kulp Court Apartments and The Webster Apartments, whose owners didn't put much money back into this property.
It seems that some people haven't let death stop them from continuing to live here.
Securely latched closet doors open by themselves. Coat hangers move and rattle together by themselves as well.
Lights go on and off and knocking on doors by unseen hands have been reported.
Ghostly whispers are heard in some apartment units.
Fights in the past between people still go on for the entertainment of the neighbors, who are very much alive.
Heavy footfalls and disembodied yelling has been heard, coming from empty apartments.
Sounds of dishes and pans being thrown and broken, though nothing is amiss when the witness checks up on their kitchen area.
Being dead hasn't improved the character or demeanor of an entity who haunts the place.
In a particular apartment unit, cold spots and a hostile unseen presence are felt.
This entity touches and gropes female residents.
Seems to be, if one believes eye-witness accounts.
