After reading a post about the Broken Bit, a few of us were talking about it being haunted. I cannot find the post to invite the ladies that were saying they had experiences there. I created a group where we can share stories and form get togethers called Haunted EMC. If you know the ladies I am talking about, please let them know. One was named Angie I believe. Feel free to join if you are interested and share with others you believe would be interested! ... See MoreSee Less

Deniece BusseAll I can tell you is that I walked in trying to discern if I could write insurance on the building and couldn't wait to get out. it was so freaky and uncomfortable just to be in there. Haunted. yes something like that2 hours ago

Becca MaxwellYes! I forgot about Raymond! I will add that to the description. I have heard a LOT about the fire house there1 hour ago

Tammi KudraI've investigated the fire house and the Raymond store plus the house behind it several times. The craziest was the room above the store. Will never forget that. It was so cool.3   ·  1 hour ago

Becca MaxwellI hung out there during an investigation and loved it. I used to perform there and the wardrobe room and dressing rooms always freaked me out1   ·  37 minutes ago

Judi PriceBackstage was always interesting - met many a ghost there! I was stage manager and backstage manager there for quite a few years.2   ·  36 minutes ago

Becca MaxwellI hated walking down the hallway towards the green room in the dark! I never got scared back stage but there was always too much of our energy to feel anything.1   ·  32 minutes ago

Spencer MacPhailI participated in a seance at the Golden Chain Theater. I never saw such a group of freaked out people, everyone there saw the spirits going through the group of us at the table. I never saw a place empty out so fast in my life. A plurality of the people sitting at that table are now dead by their own hand.15 minutes ago

Liza CaraconceaThe credit for this fire going out quickly is the fire fighters and the man with a shovel in the fire itself trying to put it out. He did amazing. He was working hard before anyone showed up. We were stuck in the middle with flames next to our car watching this man try and save his mountain home.

Hello to my Oakhurst & North Fork friends.my lease is up at my apt here in Fresno in January. I'm really missing the hills but most of all my son & his family in North Fork. I'm seriously thinking of moving back up but Social Security isn't paying me much or even enough for rent sence I'm not 65 yet anywhere that I'd feel safe in. IV only been here in the valley 2 years but really missing the mts & family. So what I'm asking is if anyone has or knows of a studio or an empty mother in law quarters or a small place to be care takers of in Oakhurst, Bass Lake , or North Fork I would love to know about please. My son is Justin DeMasters of N.F. he works for North Fork Pump. If you have any info please contact me on fb or my email. joaniekennedy53@yahoo.com Thank You So very much... ... See MoreSee Less
