I own a home near Officers Row.
I lived there for one month. It is a 1909 house.
Shortly after moving in I was sitting on the living room floor and looked up to see a man standing in the front doorway.
He wore a blue top with a high collar and long sleeves and a squarish cap.
I know NOTHING about the military but he was definitely some kind of soldier (or it looked kind of like a bellhop’s uniform).
But I was looking at his face. He was about 40 and looking right at me.
I saw him one more time.
I always felt safe in that house.
My tenant who now lives there asked me whether the house was haunted and said that she saw a man in the living room.
