It has served as an office space, a college, even a jail. Now though it's in danger of falling into disrepair.
"There's an ongoing effort to remodel this building," said Mayor Chris Mason. "It's a beautiful old old building, the first thing that was built here."
An estimated $1-1.5 Million is needed to restore the building to it's previous glory. Now, some of that will come through public ghost tours. 10News and other media outlets were given a preview Saturday night.
G.H.O.S.T. Paranormal will host the tours once a month. Fifty percent of the proceeds go to preservation efforts.
"With the economy the way it is, we're just going to work every angle we can. And this is a great one to start," Mason said.
"This is not anything the city took lightly," said Richard Ruland, founder of G.H.O.S.T. Paranormal. "We went to four different city council meetings to be able to get this done."
During Saturday's tour, visitors captured several unexplained voices, electro-magnetic activity, and physical sensations.
Mason is already excited about the endeavor.
"This thing has made the news across the world. So people everywhere know about it, and that in itself has already been a big plus for us," he said.
The public tours will be held the third Saturday of every month. To register, visit G.H.O.S.T. Paranormal's website.
