The Nebraska State Capitol - HauntedHouses.com
445 "K" Street
This glorious Nebraska State Capitol Building can be found by taking hwy 180/34 and getting off on Capitol Parkway West (called K Street on the other side of 34). It is a one way street, running east. The Nebraska State Capitol Building will be on the left, just a little past 14th Street, which is a one way street running North. Be sure you have a good map, because the out of town traveler is faced with an obstacle course of one way streets!
This immense stone building, featuring a 12 story high rise tower, in its center, with its dome on the very top, is internationally recognized, the architectural achievement of architect Bertram Grosvenor Goodhue. It took ten years to construct (1922-1932), at the cost of 10 million dollars!! YIKES! It has held up very well, and still has the space to hold today's Nebraskan government.
Inside, one finds many lovely paintings and murals which reflect the history and culture of the gutsy people who settled Nebraska. It is truly a majestic building, handsomely designed and truly inspiring.
HISTORY of MANIFESTATIONS:
The one structural flaw of this beautiful building was having too short safety rails on the spiral stairs which lead up to the 12th floor, and the dome. This caused two unfortunate deaths.
Entity of the female worker, the visitor or the light bulb changer: Perhaps they take turns reliving their own deaths!
Witnesses have heard: Sounds of distress; Mainly screaming, & crying.
For example, people have heard a man crying when they ride the elevator, or stand on the southwest side of the observation deck in the tower.
Voices coming from unseen presences. Footfalls on the steps when no one alive was present. Tactile activity: Witnesses report: People sense that they are being watched, and have felt unseen presences keeping them company. The spirit of an Indian entity was sensed by a psychic in the basement.
Yes, it appears to be.
