St. Helens may look like a normal town, but it actually has a reputation for being a paranormal hotspot.
Paranormal activity is concentrated in the historic Olde Town area.
Most encounter it from the old theatre to the Klondike Bar and Restaurant.
Multiple paranormal research teams have paid a visit to the Klondike. Nearly every team that inspects the empty upper floors of this Victorian-era building has reported sensing that an altercation took place somewhere on the second floor. Investigators have also caught a self-starting coffee machine on video and otherworldly voices on digital recordings.
Many chilling accounts of paranormal activity have been reported at the Klondike.
One of the most eerie stories involves a female spirit that is said to haunt the upstairs portion of the building. According to legend, she had a miscarriage and is now continuously searching for her baby.
