A Ghost Report from the Los Angeles Herald on November 26, 1905

Spectral EditionThere’s a haunted house in Kansas City, and its brave resident eventually abandoned it. To solve the ghostly mystery, the landlord invited a team of Spiritualists to hold a seance there.

According to them, the place is haunted by Lena Bernheim and Andrew Cogliasky, a couple in love who were murdered there decades earlier.


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.
