GHOST STORIES OF INDIANA

Author: Edrick Thay

Indiana, Crossroads of America, is known as a place rich in folklore, where spirits and ghosts intermingle with the lives of ordinary Hoosiers, often with strange and frightening consequences.

  • A woman in Greene County discovers that the frightening vision of a tombstone in her living room was a premonition of her husband's death.
  • A former Indiana University student stalks fellow students in vivid and terrifying nightmares.
  • Shrunken heads, a peculiar hidden altar and chilling screams in the night in an Indiana University residence lead the tenants to hold a séance.
  • Blue lights, once hung on a now-demolished Indianapolis mansion, mysteriously still glow in the night sky.
  • The friendly ghost of Thomas Taggart is still making sure things run smoothly at the French Lick Springs Grand Hotel.
  • The mischievous ghost of former football hero George Gipp spooks students at University of Notre Dame's Washington Hall.
  • Amelia Earhart's spirit returns to spend time at her old haunt, Purdue University.
  • An arsonist spirit sets dozens of fires in an Odon home, driving the family to tear the whole house down.
  • The specter of a riverman killed by pirates a century ago wanders the banks of the Ohio River searching for his missing head.
  • The lantern light of a grieving father can be seen every night on Spook Light Hill as he wanders in search of his beloved daughter's murderer.
  • Once the site of a gruesome massacre, a farmhouse near Valparaiso now hosts ghostly hallucinations of severed heads.

From dancing orbs to headless apparitions, numerous friendly and frightening ghosts haunt every corner of the Hoosier State.
