The C&H Lanes in Chanute, Kansas served as the home of a freak accident several years ago. One woman went bowling, and her fingers got stuck in the ball as she rolled the ball. With such momentum in her arm, it swung up and hit her skull. She died of her injuries. Now, the lanes are haunted by the woman. Footsteps, the women’s bathroom door shudders, and bowling pins will knock down on their own. Lights have been known to flicker when she is mad.

Bobby Mackey’s Music World is a nightclub currently owned by country singer Bobby Mackey. It has been dubbed “the most haunted nightclub in the USA” by Mackey. Urban legends and folklore say it is the “gateway to hell”. One of the nightclub’s resident spirits is Pearl Bryan, whose body was found in a field several miles away from the club. Rumor has it that Bryan’s murderers were Satanists who cursed the location and vowed to haunt everyone involved in the prosecution of the case.
Another ghost is that of Johanna, a 1930s dancer who got pregnant when she wasn’t married. She committed suicide in her dressing room in the Latin Quarter Club (now Bobby Mackey’s). Although there is no record of it, it is believed that she killed herself after her father murdered her lover, who was a singer at the club.
While both tales are merely rumors, there are some who believe in the connection to the place while others don’t. According to Bobby Mackey, the site was a slaughterhouse in the early 19th century that was later demolished to build a roadhouse. He purchased it in 1978.
