Real Haunted House

Carnegie Library

St. Joseph, Missouri

The Carnegie Library is supposedly haunted by the spirit of a former librarian. When nearing closing time, some people have reported hearing footsteps from an unknown entity, as well as someone saying “shhhhh”. Some accounts even claim that books have moved from shelf to another shelf on their own.
