These employees worked in the brig building, which was used as a state parks maintenance building. All of the employees who encountered a ghostly visitor described a balding man who might have been in some kind of uniform, possibly prisoner's garb. Others, who did not see the apparition, talked about hair-raising experiences with large objects being mysteriously 'relocated' or objects flying across the cells, which still exist in the building, bars and all.
