Description:
sometime in the 40s50s a janitor at this women’s institution weft crazy and murdered several patience and some staff before being subdued by police. Its said that he, carried the bodies to a near by dock and threw several into the water. Me and some friends got drunk and decided to test our nerves by walking the grounds "only a foundation, dock and small forest "we split up and one friend Jessie fell down several times claiming to have been grabbed by some force around the ankles "small scratches around the sock area confirmed this". I heard what I believe to be footsteps and a woman or child crying. Natives to Rainer Ave don’t go near it and cursed us when we pulled over to ask directions.

Think this is referring to the old Martha Washington school which is now a park in the city of Seattle, The physical address is 6612 57th Ave. S, Seattle, WA. The location is actually closer to Seward Park if you know where that is.

I grew up across the street, so the builing and grounds have had a deep impact on me and neighborhood friends throughout the 70's 80's and strangely enough to this day. I remember watching the building burn one early morning,I was about 15 then and I will never forget the feeling from those flames.I had been in and out of the building since I was 8 and was kind of sad to see it burning as relieved because it's power over me was leaving.Martha Washinton has residual energy today. Haunted from tragidies and confinement, the girls of Martha Washington are still there.GW

I will never forget my visit to the school. I was about 11 or 12 years old, and it was Halloween.  After tricker-treating at some of the larger, more affluent homes nearby, we decided to visit the "haunted old girl's home," as we called it.  We actually made it all the way on the grounds and two of us went inside, but that didn't last long.  We suddenly heard babies crying and it seemed like a bassinet appeared at the top of the stairs out of no where.  We ran out, and it felt like we were being chased by dogs.  We could hear them behind us.  As we ran passed this large tree, my cousin and I both noticed a noose hanging from the tree.  I am sure it was not there when we passed by the same tree earlier.  We all ran as fast as we could up the hill, and I remember looking back and seeing a dark, male figure with a dog.  I've tried to find out what happened there on several occasions.  I wish I could find a newspaper article.  Anyhow, I've since learned that the grounds keeper was crazy, and he had two large, black dogs.  I've also learned that someone or someones where hung on that tree.  There are rumors about abortions and rape.  Every Halloween, I try to learn a little more to make sense of that experience.  I just want to know the truth.  I felt so bad for those girls on that night.  I felt like they were being trapped and tormented.  Like every year, I do a little research and tonight I found out that there were satanic rituals occurring right around the time we visited.  I'm 35 now so that was 23 years ago - 1985.  I was happy to hear that it was demolished, but I'm still scared to even go down that street and saddened by what those girls went through.

I have heard this place spawned the Nightmare on Elm St.. series,although the street name was changed.I don't see anything close to "ELM" on any map.I visited once before it was tore down in 89, in the middle of the day, and I have to say it was the creepiest place I've ever felt.A friend had said that the janitor had raped some girls up in the attic,and that the parents found out,went to the school, found him burning the bodies in the basement incinerator,and threw him in .He said there were newspaper stories from the 40's/50's to confirm this,but I never checked.I do know that once you walk on to the grounds you feel like the temp. dropped 40 degrees, and something doesn't want you there.

I DO NOT KNOW WHERE ARE THESE STORIES COME FROM. I WAS THERE FOR SEVERAL YEARS AND MET SOME SAD AND ABUSED GIRLS FROM SO CALLED NICE HOMES. BEATEN, ABUSED AND SEXUALLY MOLESTED BY THEIR OWN FAMILY MEMBERS. I WAS ONE OF THE LUCKY ONES. I WAS PLACED THERE WAITING FOR A FOSTER HOME. OTHERS WERE NOT SO LUCKY..THERE IS A STORY NEVER TOLD AND HAS TO DO WITH VERY SPECIAL GIRLS..I LEFT THERE WITH A SADNESS KNOWING THEY HAD PASSED THROUGH MY LIFE AND WE WOULD PROBALY NEVER MEET AGAIN. THE STAFF HAD ALOT TO BE DESIRED AND WERE NOT THERE TO HELP. THOSE THAT HAVE NEVER BEEN THERE, LIVED THERE FOR ANYTIME AND HAVE NEVER MET THE GIRLS OR GOT TO KNOW THEM NEED TO STOP WITH WHAT THEY DO NOT KNOW OR FEEL. I WOULD LIKE TO OF BEEN ABLE TO MAKE CONACT WITH THE GIRLS AND HOPE THEY WERE ABLE TO COME THROUGH IT..MAY GOD BE WITH THEM...

I walked around this place back in '84 with a bunch of friends. Besides almost falling through a hole on the second floor that went all the way through to the first i remember going into one room with kids pictures on the wall crossed out with a red X. Not sure what that was about but could have just been people setting up props to make the place creepier than it already was. I also remember seeing a library with glass bookcases and books still in them. I also went to other rooms with handprints on the walls like kids would do with paint on their hands. Definitely a creepy place as I remember it.

In around the late 1980s me and some of my friends also walked around the grounds of The Martha Washington  school; it was late at night and what I saw was an old dusty building with dark boarded up rooms, old tables and desks and possibly some blood stains on the walls and floors, but I can't be sure.  I did get an eerie feeling from the school and decided never to go near the school again. :(

Back in 06 me and some friends went there and messed around after the Pista event at Seward park. Never did we see anything while there but as soon as we left a few of us began to act up in a scary way. We began up the hill towards the Jewish Church? and the friend of ours who was usually easy going instantly became angry for unknown reasons. He was acting possesed as well as two other friends who were playing the role rather well but stopped after some attention. My easy going friend however didnt snap back completely for two days. He literally was zoned out sitting on the steps of the church, rubbing his raw knuckles on the concrete ground. I did as he and found that hard to do. That following night me and a friend stayed over while he was still "possessed". He would sway his head back left and right all night looking into the corners over the room explaining when he could that it somehow made him feel better. Till this day we never seriously brought that night up but I'm actually curious to know wth happened that night, thus stumbling upon this thread.
