Near one hundred years ago, there was a woman who lived near the road on her own for several years. The townspeople accused her and two others of witchcraft, and the three were hung with chains. Now, every Halloween at midnight, you can hear the sound of chains being dragged across the top of the car when you drive beneath the branches of the tree in which they were hanged from.
In 1978, the Wal-Mart in Chanute, Kansas was upgraded into a Super Center, which caused one man to try to protest it in anger. He died in the parking lot for unknown reasons. Now, he haunts the store, and is known to hang around the children’s aisle, where he often plays with the toys when he is happy. If, however, he’s angry, he gives off cold air and shuts down the power on Halloween. It is believed that only children can see him, and those who follow him don’t come back.
It is said that on moonlit nights, you can see the “ghost of Hebron Lane”, an elderly woman who walks through the cemetery carrying a lantern. She is seen wearing a long dress, an apron, and a scarf on her head. The story goes that she holds her lantern high, looking in the trees for her lost cat. The woman appears most often during Halloween and the fall months.
Camp Cottaquilla is a Girl Scout camp notorious for its ghost of a scout.

On Halloween, people have reported hearing the classroom intercom on and off by itself, as well as doors slamming shut in the 6th-grade section of the girls’ bathroom. Years ago, a teacher committed suicide by jumping off a fake airplane that sits atop the building shortly after revealing that a disruptive student “drove her crazy”. Her death is believed to be the cause of the hauntings.
