This modern technical center is haunted by the ghosts of Warren and Virginia Randall, whose house once stood on the property. The young couple moved into the house in 1907. They seemed happy until Warren lost a leg in an accident at work on the Grand Rapids Indiana Railroad. Fitted with an artificial leg, he became depressed and insanely jealous of Virginia. During one of their many arguments, Warren took off his leg and beat his wife to death. Then he opened the gas jets and slashed his throat. It was two weeks before police found their horribly decomposed bodies. The house quickly gained a reputation for being haunted, and nobody would live in it because of the couples ghosts. It was finally torn down in the 1920's, when the telephone company built a brick office on the site. The Randalls ghosts have been blamed for strange phone calls made late at night to Michigan Bell customers, as well as numerous unexplainable events in the building.
