Place Altoona- Bakers Mansion

***Submitted by Orphington78- Elias Baker, famous for his furnaces, had a daughter(Ellie Baker) and she wanted to get married. It seems that Mr. Baker didnt like his daughter's choice for a husband, so the wedding never took place. Poor Bakers daughter died of a supposed broken heart. (now mind you its all legend pertaining to some facts) Its said that "her" wedding dress which is locked in an air tight display case, to prevent decaying, moves around. Although it its a wedding dress, its not hers, but yet it does move. In the mansion there are things that move and numerous cold spots. You can hear cry late at night if you're near the mansion and sometimes lights flicker on and off. I have walked through the mansion and felt these cold spots, but I have never seen the dress move, but I swear it does! the last time I went to the mansion the dress was hanging straight ahead. Then when I saw it again it was hanging facing the left and I walked out of the room and came back in it was facing the right. No one was in the room when it moved!
