It’s not every day that you get to see an action movie in real life, but some residents in Claremont got to witness a little bit of that Tuesday. The NH State Police SWAT Team conducted training Tuesday between 8:00 AM and 3:00 PM at the Topstone building on Mulberry Street.
The Topstone building, formerly the Topstone Mill, houses a restaurant on the bottom floor, the Time-Out Americana Grill, owned by Nicholas Koloski.
The SWAT Team trained on the 4th and 5th floors of the building, which are vacant, and the public was advised prior to the training to not be alarmed if they saw a heavy presence of tactical law enforcement in the area.
Now here’s an interesting note, the popular television show Ghost Hunters, during their 8th season, actually conducted an investigation at the Topstone building, as it is rumored to be haunted.
Having previously been a shoe and furniture store, the episode was called “Fear Factory” and the crew discovered and recorded alleged supernatural activity.
