Is the D’ Haunted?

Was talking to a friend over a brew a couple of nights ago and she asked why doesn’t someone do a “Haunted Detroit Tour?” Wow, what a great idea! I wrote a couple of weeks ago about Preservation Wayne and the cool tours they have but what about the buildings that have unexplained things happening?

And believe me, it goes on. True stories. . . I have seen glasses fly off of shelves in my bar. There is one TV that is difficult to turn on. I mean the button is always sticking. We put on ESPN all day, right. Well, I don’t know how many times I have had to change it because it’s always being changed to a cartoon channel. On it’s own. Lights go on and off. Strange noises that can not be explained.

I had a patron talking to me across the bar one night and he was critical of a certain aspect of it’s operation. All of a sudden his eyes got wide and he asked me if we had ghosts in the building. I thought that was odd because I had never discussed it with him. So I answered in the affirmative and asked him why. He said someone just slapped him up side of his head!! One can only conclude that the ghost likes the place, eh?

Jacoby’s on Brush is said to be haunted. A friend of mine who use to bartend there refused to go up to the second floor. There is a ghost up there and it’s a little girl she says in a frightened voice. She has seen her walking down the stairs but never all the way. My friend has asked a medium why she never walks all the way down and she said it’s because the original building didn’t have any stairs! All kinds of unexplained noises and pictures moving around have been observed by many or Jacoby’s employees over the years, inclluding footsteps on the wood floor upstairs when not a sould is up there!

Oh yea, Detroit is haunted alright. Hey, maybe I’ll do the tour. Anyone who has a story to tell, feel free to send it to me at this forum as a comment, k? Happy haunting!

    I cannot believe that the D wouldn’t be haunted. It was the stage for the Underground Railroad, the race riots, and the mob. I’m sure if one researched Klan crimes, something would turn up.

    …and i’m sure the ghost of Coleman Young is still patrolling 8 mile road trying to keep the suburbanites out of “his” city
