The rolling countryside of Howard County is dotted with dozens of two-hundred-year-old log cabins, humble homes and magnificent manor houses—many teeming with restless spirits. From the specter of the madman murderer at Belmont Manor to the spirits of mangled workers at Savage Mill, the dead return to tell their tales. Delve into the stories behind the “Blue Lady” of Salopha, the lovelorn poltergeist at the Grayhouse, the shocking secret of the Mead House and the gruesome origins of the tormented spirit at La Petite Academy. Packed with recently uncovered facts, nearly forgotten local lore and chilling eyewitness accounts, every chapter overflows with riveting stories of Howard County’s haunted history. Author Shelley Davies Wygant uncovers spooky tales that have never been told before.
