Sorry, but we couldn't find the haunt you're looking for. Here are a few things you can try:
Many years ago, a young Indian girl was kidnapped by a couple of settlers. She was taken out on the river in a canoe. A fight pursued and the vessel capsized; all three died. Three people (sometimes more) die per year according to the legend. The girl’s father, an Indiana chief, was highly upset. He placed a curse on the river and vowed that three people would die on the river every year. Since then, three or more people have died on the Saco each year.
Sometime in the 1800’s two Indians were picking berries near the edge of town, when a group of angry white townspeople found them and dragged them back to the center of town. They were accused of raping and killing a young white girl and they were hanged outside the local tavern. A few years later, a white man confessed to raping and killing the young girl. The tavern still stands in downtown Brainerd and sometimes at night when the bar closes, people have reported hearing the cries of Indian people and the beating of drums.
The word “Anchuca,” is a Choctaw Indian word meaning “happy home,” and it is quite that for this antebellum home in Vicksburg, Mississippi, which is now a favorite tourist spot.
This majestic home is haunted by former owner Richard Archer’s daughter, “Archie” Archer.Â She has been seen wearing a long brown dress in the dining room.Â Also, those who have visited have felt a presence in the area what used to be the slave quarters.
Anchuca Mansion is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
This house is said to have belonged to a doctor during the antebellum period. A conductor on the Underground Railroad, the doctor helped many slaves escape to freedom. One slave, however, died on the way to Canada. It is said that this slave had wanted to earn money to go back and buy the freedom of his girlfriend-Nelly Gray. In response to the tragedy, the doctorï¿½s son wrote the Civil War song, which became very popular in the North, “Darling Nelly Gray.” Since that time, the house has been haunted by an unknown ghost. It is so plagued by the apparition, that the deed of the house notes that it is haunted.
In the 1940s, a young lady lived across the street from the cemetery. After becoming infected with tuberculosis, the girl died and was buried in a white party gown. It is said that on dark nights, one may see a bright, illuminating figure of a young girl walking along the side of the road. It is said that if one stops, she will ask him for a ride home because she is lost. Once they get past the cemeteryï¿½s property line, however, the girl disappears.
Hennessy Mansion was originally owned by Daniel J. Hennessy, who was a wealthy businessman and a Democratic State Senator. He built this home in the late 1890s. This mansion was definitely a dream home, with three floors and a gym in the basement. Throughout the course of time after Mr. Hennessy’s death, the mansion has been used as a private residence, dormitory and fraternity house.
There have been reports that Mr. Hennessy still hangs around his house to keep a watchful eye over it. The apparition has been seen in the basement, basement staircase, gym and kitchen.
