But onto the main event! We recommend the following 5 sites for first time ghost hunters.
- 2309 Witchita – This impressive house is said to be haunted by its initial owner, Charles Fandow and many people have reported finding apparitions of a ghostly figure on the grounds at night, accompanies by inexplicable sounds. Make sure you have your EVP handy.
- Patterson Road – A site with which we have had personal experience, this creepy road off Eldridge Parkway is known for its many car crashes so drive carefully. Many think that these car crashes are due to people speeding to try and get out of this dark and lonesome road, but many think that this road, and the bridge in particular, are haunted by the ghosts of confederate soldiers. We switched off our engines on the bridge (please be careful as the road is very dark) and started to hear tapping on the windows, as if people were marching by.
- Jefferson Davis Hospital/Elder Artists Street Lofts – This hospital was said to be haunted by deceased patients, and now the lofts that have been built in the area are now experiencing the same hauntings. Go at your own risk.
- Kings Gate Village – One of the saddest back stories in the list, there was a girl who was killed by her boyfriend when she found him cheating on her, and is now said to haunt the apartments and public areas of this town.
- Martha Chapel Cemetery – We have saved the best for last. Although this is a bit of a drive up north, if you want to have the highest chance of a paranormal encounter, this is the place. Many possessions are said to occur on ‘Demon’s Road’ while driving up to the cemetery, and staff who work there frequently here screams or giggles as tormented souls wander. Please be careful visiting and be respectful of the dead, as these spirits are know to be violent.
So get your ghost hunting camcorder out, round up your friends and head out into the city for a spooky adventure you will never forget.
