Spencer works at two assisted living centers in Colorado Springs. We went to a balloon glow Sunday when I was there and parked at one of his places of work. When we pulled in this is the building I saw. First words out of my mouth were "What the hell is this place haunted!?"

He laughed and said yes it is but that building is abandoned right now. Apparently back in the 90s one of the residents was smoking while on oxygen. Things caught on fire and building abandoned.

The actual building he works in is this one built in 1891 by the Topographical Union for workers suffering from Black Lung or Tuberculosis.
