Wander Hills Orphanage was once an orphanage in Queens until it was burned down. Over the decades the property suffered numerous time-warp hauntings due to the repeat manifestations of the ghost of the orphanage's former headmistress, Ellen Gold.
Wander Hills Orphanage stood until 1920 when it burned down after a tree adjacent to the building caught fire during a lightning storm. The blazing tree then collapsed into the east wing of the lower floor. Headmistress Ellen Gold had locked all of the orphanage's children in their rooms during the storm. Gold and all of the children died in the fire.
However, this was not the last time Wander Hills would be seen. Over the decades, six occurrences of the Wander Hills manifestation were reported. In 1922, Gold was seen in the attic of the house built over the orphanage grounds just before the house caught fire. In 1944, the children of three families living in apartments built at the time reporting seeing ghosts of children just two days before their own deaths. Sightings continued in 1963, 1973, 1984, and 1989.
In the 1990s, the Sunderland family were the current owners of the property. They hired the Ghostbusters when Wander Hills manifested again. Ray Stantz and Egon Spengler discovered Gold in the kitchen and opened fire. Winston Zeddemore and Peter Venkman joined in from above and Gold was trapped. So far, the Sunderland family reported no further manifestations of Wander Hills.
Ellen Gold was released when the Containment Unit was manually vented to prevent a catastrophic explosion. She immediately tried to manifest familiar surroundings but due to being a long distance away from the original Wander Hills, Gold wasn't completely successful.  Once Gold was trapped, the Firehouse's basement returned to normal.
The time-warp haunting of Wander Hills is a rare occurrence of "Temporal Displacement Haunting" in which latent psychokinetic energy in the physical space of the orphanage once stood was manipulated by the ghost of Ellen Gold. This lead to a psychic reconstruction of Wander Hills, irrespective of the laws of physics. While the building appeared normal on the outside, the exterior was an exact facsimile of the orphanage.
