Dr. Joseph King is calling it quits.
He tried to stay in the haunted house. However, the sudden bangs and the ghostly singing — and the time “when he was aroused by a cold, clammy object being placed on his face” — proved to be too much.
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.
