Several citizens in Nez Perce, Idaho, have seen a spectral woman wandering their streets at night. Some say it peers through their windows.
There is talk that it might not be a ghost at all — a hoax, perhaps, or a living woman with psychological problems. But none are brave enough to investigate the matter closely.
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.
