Opened 1925 as a junior seminary for Roman Catholic boys, the Salesian School in Goshen, New York operated until 1985, when dwindling attendance forced it to close. It continued as a youth center for a few more years, but eventually, shut its doors for good in 1991. Since then, it’s become associated with legends of hauntings and ghost stories, especially concerning the true story of Paul Lewis Ramos, a 9-year-old student who leapt from the rooftop in the middle of the night. His death continues to be a mystery and fuel rumors of hauntings, but Goshen police continue to patrol the grounds and arrest trespassers who scale the school’s fence and brave the asbestos riddled interior in search of the paranormal.
