I live in a large apartment complex in Vancouver, Washington that appears to have ghosts in several of the buildings, including mine.

I became aware of this phenomenon about two years ago when I came home on different occasions to find things out of place. That includes a sliding glass door and bedroom window unlocked, the TV and radio unplugged, and various items in my apartment out of place.

The big topper was when I woke up one morning to discover the cold-water valve unplugged under my bathroom sink.

As time when on, I listened to the stories of various tenants in this complex. One young tenant even attempted to conduct research on this particular property by using the resources at the Clark County Historic Museum Library.

Discovery Park Apartments are located one block East from Highway 99 in Hazel Dell. The cross streets are 88th St. and 15th Ave.

Presently, I am assisting three young Clark College students with their research of ghostly activities in the Clark County area. However, they cannot seem to locate any information about this particular piece of property.
