A Ghost Report from the San Antonio Light on April 25, 1885

Spectral EditionAfter Charles Gillett ran to the village store to report that he had seen a ghost, others came forward to say they’d seen the apparition, too.

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.
