Myths & legends of the Art Instituteedit
In 1946, The Burnley School of Professional Art moved into the building at 905 E Pine St The Art school operated at that location until 1986 That same year, the building became the Seattle Central Community College south annex building In 1913, an eighteen-year-old boy was killed during a fight after a basketball game, resulting in him being thrown down the back stairs of the building The students named his ghost "Burnley" Through the years since that event, various people from both schools using the building have had experiences with Burnley678 At the Art Institute of Seattle, students working in the building alone, regardless of the time of day, have heard unexplainable noises coming from other rooms next door One student heard someone shuffling paperwork, and walking around in the adjacent room No one was in that room A janitor had just entered a dark classroom to drop off his cleaning equipment, which he planned on returning to after turning on the building lights, just as he left the room he heard a loud crash He quickly returned to find four desks and chairs overturned in the middle of the classroom Similarly at the Seattle Central Community College other unexplained acts were reported The college's microcomputer lab is located on the second floor; the lab manager, who was a female, reported that Burnley directed his attention towards women with his acts, totally disregarding the males When she was in the storage room, completing inventory, a stack of computer disks fell on her head The disks were always stored on the top shelf in the corner, far from the location where they fell When the occurrence happened again, the manager told Burnley to stop it He complied Today, although the building has undergone numerous upgrades, Burnley still continues to toy with the living
