Milford Skating Rink, Milford, DE
The Milford Skating Rink has employed dozens since opening its doors in 1982. However, it seems some are reluctant clock out for good. According to the rink’s current owners, skates at the rental counter tumble off their racks and then land right side up on the counter several feet away.

Do you think the paranormal group captured a legitimate haunting?
