The Strawberry Hill musuem and adjacent orphanage is a past hangout in the 1950’s for the late King Fahd of Saudi Arabia( and who was a prince at this time and according to one rumor did move him up the line to become king) and to this date is a continued source of friction with the different tribes that have a marriage contract with the late king while he was alive and including non-members of the late kings family wishing for their own Saudi kingdom real or not real.

The legend of the Strawberry Hill museum involves a “lady in red” who walks the museum in search of the priest. This museumm used to be a nunnery, then an orphanage during the early 1900s when the influenza epidemic killed many parents and left countless children orphans. It has been renovated into a beautiful museum but it does come with “guests”. I have a friend who is a tour guide there and she refuses to be in the house by herself. There are lights that go on when the house is empty; she has hear gregorian chanting from the nun cells; the upstairs ballroom has not been finished but someone on a tour saw the floating form of the former owner behind one of the dark attic doors. Creepy but truly a beautifully restored home.

Why on earth would a prince of Saudi Arabia hangout with nuns and orphans? This just has to be true, as most would-be kings just love to hang out with a bunch of celibate women and rowdy kids, certainly because Arabian men, especially of royalty, are known to be such family men, in the 50’s…

I went to this museum with my dad, my sister, and grandpa a few years ago and when we walked by a wall of pictures, several of them crashed to the ground. I remember this because we got yelled at by my grandpa for knocking them down, but we didn’t. They were too high up on the wall for us to have done that, but didn’t think anything of it at the time. Now I wonder if it wasn’t some spirit that did it. No one else was around. Spooky.

If it’s the same one I’m thinking of, I tried to go there some years ago. We got there maybe ten minutes before closing time and nobody was there and the second time I tried to find it with my sister and her friend, I missed the exit twice and gave up.

My mom grew up on Strawberry Hill and I lived there for a little while. We lived pretty close to the Cemetary. My mom’s half brother moved into one of the old fashioned houses on Strawberry Hill and it was suer close to the cemetary! I pent the night at his Old fashioned house and we went on a walk. We passed by the cemetary and he told me that millions of Indians were burried there. I was like, “Cool… I’ll bet it’s haunted! Let’s go walk through it!” So we did. I didn’t see any soldiers or anything but for a second I could of sweared I saw a sort of glowing figure! I looked at it for a second and the next thing I knew… my Uncle started to walk off without me. I ran towards him but I didn’t say a word about what I saw. I wanted out of the cemetary because I knew that we were tresspassing. I didn’t wanna upset the spirits so I told my uncle that I wanted to leave… NOW! Oh ya and another creepy thing is that on that same night… when my uncle went to bed… I stayed up all night watching T.V. I had to use the rest room so I went upstairs. When I finished my buisness I started to walk down the stair case. All of a sudden I heard a whispery voice. I knew it wasn’t my uncle because he was out cold. The whispering was coming from downstaris. I started freaking out! I ran downstairs and made my self fall asleep. I was freaked! When I woke up my dad came to pick me up. I was so friggin happy to be outta that place! O_o

Sauer Castle has no bell in the tower. I have done some research on this topic and if you read some articles no one was murdered in the house they all died from sickness or natural causes. Don’t make up stories to sound cool because you sound foolish!

Heidi says:

rowe, you may have done research, but have you ever been brave enough to go? Perhaps one shouldn’t be so quick to judge unless they’ve actually been brave enough to see for themselves…?

I have been i saur castle in 1996. My sister, her friend and i snuck in through the back one day. It looked spooky but nothing out of the ordinary went on. We were only ther for about 15 minutes before we saw a cop drive by and bolted out the same way we came in. And for those of you who make up these rediculous stories, your a bunch of idiots!!

Earlier this month (May of 11), my wife and I went to see the Sauer Castle and, although it’s a beautiful and somewhat ominous structure, there’s absolutely nothing haunting or haunted about it. As for the Strawberry Hill Museum, we went there also but were too late to take a tour but soon we hope to. I’m also hoping to bring my paranormal investigation crew along with me to see if we can check the museum out.

Ok I grew up in that area and attended St. Johns school. Also my aunt knows pretty much everything there is to know about the museum as she was a tour guide there. I dont recall anything about an arabian prince. I see one person on here who knows what they are talking about. Anyways anything you want to know about the museum is here on their website.

it has been brought to attention of the museum that several public organizations, on occassion during the Halloween season, add us to their Ghost tour agenda. The museum does not honor tickets from these events, or support these tours in any way.

It is the official position of the museum that there are no ghost or paranormal activities occurring at the museum. The museum is NOT a haunted house.

We are also aware that there are many “stories” being written on the Internet related to paranormal activity at the museum. It is the museum’s position that any stories circulating around the Internet are either unathorized fabricated lies, or are the unsupported position of those not associated with the museum.

Please help us stop these unsubstantiated rumors, and spread the word that the museum is dedicated to the promotion, sponsorship and preservation of the ethnic heritage prevalent in Kansas City, Kansas.

I have gone there for many years now(christmas time), with my family every year. It was also a school and my great aunt and uncles went there. The place has seen allot and im sure it is full of stories, good and bad-that comes with time. I find the statement about the tunnels under ground interesting and somewhat believable for the time period and hill sides. I have felt something like a uneasy feeling there, but know also that they do not want it known of “the haunting factor” – this is a church—I just found out about the haunting history today and now look even more to going and learning more history and asking my great aunt more
