Ghost Stories - The Wisterman Building
While remodeling the first floor of the old Wisterman Building on Harding Way East, workers thought they heard the voices of small children playing in the basement. Part of the workers job was to pull out all the old plumbing in the basement. Some of that plumbing had been used for draining blood from the bodies when the building had housed a funeral parlor.
The crews contact the owner of the building, Kent Gimbel, saying they didn’t want to finish the work because they were afraid of the eerie sounds. City Loan, however, was waiting at that time for the work to be completed so they could move in and the crew was under deadline. They crew would have to work late in to the night to finish the project.
They were ordered back to work.
Galion lore holds that long ago several children died in a house fire and their bodies were prepared for burial by the funeral home that had once been in the Wisterman Building.
