Four years ago, one couple's life changed forever. They experienced the presence of two spirits inside the Old Levy Mansion during a renovation.

"I immediately investigated and there was nobody there," says Garth Elliott.

About three months into the renovation, Garth was walking upstairs when he heard something out of the ordinary.

"I heard two feminine voices. We walked a little further up and we heard running back and forth on the landing just above our heads. I yelled out who's there, and it kept going and I got around the corner, and low and behold there was nobody there," says Elliott.

After Garth and Linda's experience, they went home and researched the Levy house and it's history. What they read shocked them: ghost investigators say the spirits of three young children live in the house. The investigators have performed many seances in the building and have found that one of the young girls is very active, she constantly runs back and forth.

"Every hair on my neck and back basically pricked up I just could not explain what we had heard," says Elliott.

Before the encounter--Garth never had any type of experience with ghosts or spirits.

Standing in the house again four years later, he feels there's definitely something--more than just books and other people. He wouldn't go so far to call them ghosts.

"As far with a ghost with a hood on, Casper the ghost, no we don't believe in that, but we do believe that there's a spirit realm. Some people believe their demons or demonic but they didn't treat us bad, we just hear them running back and forth.

The Levy Mansion was built in 1906. It now is home to Sundance Books and Music.
