Imagine - there are many corridors in Fort Knox that require flashlights. They are long and dark. When the sun is high, rays can creep around corners to give you a little security, but when it is past its zenith and heads for the hills, then the atmosphere gets very creepy. Look how dark it is in the tunnel, just imagine that this goes on farther than my camera flash can illuminate. It is wonderful for lovers - sneaking kisses is easy. When you have kids? You hide and make scary noises to freak them out. It has an awesome echo effect. Oooooohhh! Bwhahahaaa!! Posted by Picasa

Spooky, spooky. I bet there are a lot of ghosts in that place.

LOL, Brandy. Thanks! *wink*

Bailey, gee I hate to disappoint you, but no ghosts. No deaths, no intrigue. The fort never saw battle action. During the Spanish/American War and the Civil War,troops were housed here, but never in the fort proper, but on the outskirts. The fort was in contruction for almost 25 years and was never finished!
Yet it is an incredible structural beast. Stone masons were imported from Ireland and England because they knew how to work granite. When Europeans come over to visit, they say the fort "reminds them of the castles back home", gee I wonder why? *grin*
I think that fact is cool. Maybe the Irish brought their own fae folk to haunt the place? *wink*

Just because it never saw battle action doesn't mean there can't be ghosts. I'm sure that sometime within the time it was occupied somebody died.
