A Ghost Report from the Evening Telegraph on July 26, 1869

A boarding house on Boston’s Springfield Street is haunted by bell ringing and door knocking. One gruff and ghostly voice has been heard, but multiple apparitions have been seen.

The Chief of Police is baffled, and the boarders are leaving quickly.

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 The Big Séance and the History Goes Bump podcasts — or listen to previously released recordings here.
