There are many reports of paranormal activity at The Valley Hotel Bar & Grill although it is unclear who (or what) is doing the haunting. Voices, screams, noises, knocks, and moving items are some of the many incidents reported. Footsteps, voices, and moving shadows were reported in the upstairs hallway. Floating orbs are seen in photographs and faces are seen in mirrors. An investigation by paranormal experts from the Pittsburgh Paranormal Society, turned up many unexplained phenomena including a mirror that moved of its on volition and crashed to the floor. Even the owners believe that it is haunted. “They’re not unfriendly or evil spirits, they’re just here,” said one of the owners Ms. Oggier, 59.
