Elmwood Cemetery is among the oldest graveyards in Coffeyville, Kansas, featuring many graves over a century old. Some of the more famous graves include members of the fallen Dalton Gang and Coffeyville’s Defenders from the notorious gun battle of October 5th, 1892 (which occurred after the Dalton Gang attempted to rob two banks in Downtown Coffeyville).
Tenants of the Dale Apartments have reported witnessing shadowy apparitions, disembodied noises and screaming, and doors slamming mysteriously. There is no known cause for the haunting, as no spirits have been identified.
The Brown Mansion was built sometime during the early 1900s, and has been the site of many tragedies. Mr. Brown, a wealthy man and the owner of the mansion, lost all but one of his children while they were in their childhood. Today, employees can hear the sound of bowling balls striking pins in the basement, as there was a personal alley in its day. In the third floor’s ballroom, the scent of cherry tobacco smoke sometimes and sound of partygoers fill the room. It is believed to be the ghost of Mr. Brown, and he has been seen in a smoking jacket. The house is also said to be haunted by the dead children as well.
