A Ghost Report from the Wahpeton Times on June 27, 1889

Spectral EditionI strongly suspect that the St. Micheal’s church featured in this 1889 ghost report is the one in Charleston, South Carolina, which survived an earthquake in 1886. However, the guard house near it was not so lucky.

A ghost story told by a police officer who had worked at that guard house is a sad and poetic one.

Each Wednesday, I post an actual ghost report from a U.S. newspaper published between 1865 and 1918. You can also hear me read the articles on recent episodes of The Big Séance podcast.
