Ghosts and Hauntings of the Old Jesse Lee Home in Seward, Alaska:

People have reported hearing disembodied footsteps at the Jesse Lee Home as well as the sound of a jump rope tapping. The ghost of a priest and a young orphan boy has also been reported at this location.

No children were killed at the Jesse Lee Home during the 1964 earthquake in Seward, Alaska. However, the damage from the earthquake caused the Jesse Lee Home to be shut down.

According to I.O.P.I.A., a number of children died as a result of epidemics that took place during the early twentieth century. Many of the children were sent to the orphanage/boarding school as a result of the epidemics and the death of parents/family members as well.

According to Investigation of Paranormal in Alaska, (I.O.P.I.A) (see video below), the children at the Jesse Lee Home were well cared for.
