Haunted Places Listed in Red
Historic House - On
a full moon there is a lot of ghost activity here.
Lindberg Rd. - On Lindberg rd. down towards Alex Pike. There is a supposed haunted house. It has a partially caved in roof. Neighbors say they have heard strange hiss-like sounds coming from the house. Me and a friend have broken into it before and we did a little research. Supposedly the house was caught on fire close to 20 years ago with the family still in it. All of them escaped except for the middle son, whom supposedly haunts the house. The floor caves in, in many areas of the house and there's ashes all over the place. Supposedly no body was ever found of the boy. Few eye witnesses have supposedly seen a ghost like chandelier hanging even when part of the ceiling is missing. Typical paranormal activity happens such as moving old lamps and such. The biggest spook is that when the wind blows, it will draw pictures in the ashes of a family and house. All the people you can see but the middle sons picture has a hand print over it instead of being drawn.
Old Anderson High School - the haunting is in two different places but due to the fire that happened there the older half is no longer there. In the basement of the gym you can hear screams of a young girl there due to the fact she was raped and killed there. The other part was on the second story of the older part of the high school. Ghost's have been seen and have been known to throw items when you refuse to leave.
Circle Hill Cemetery - people have seen very tall black hooded figures in there and most visitors are too scared to go back.
Sigma Phi Epsilon House - Located at Tri-State University it is haunted by a young girl who died there several years ago.
Circle - if
you go to the circle at midnight and look at the movie theatre building you will
see a man with a long red beard pacing on the top of the building. You will
also, if you are very quiet, you will hear his screeching voice say. "Marie
please come back to me, pleeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeease!"
he sobs and he sobs. He is known as the movie man. And if you go and sit to
watch a movie you will hear a sobbing man, but there wonít be anyone sitting
behind you, just rows of seats, and maybe a red bearded man.
Haunted Hotel - you can see lights music and see people in the woods. Ghosts scratch your back and they push you down the stairs. If you stop at the bridge and turn off your light you can see a person walking by. If you just stand by the hotel you can hear things and a baby and car running.

Barbee Hotel - The
Barbee Hotel was considered a very high-class resort during Al Capone's time. He
stayed in the hotel frequently, often clearing out all the guests so he could
stay in seclusion. He always stayed in room 301 at the back of the hotel. When
cleaning the rooms employees have smelled cigar smoke
and when investigated it is coming from room 301. The bartender who has worked
there for years has seen an old man sitting at one of the booths on several
occasions. When she goes to get someone, he is gone. People have reported
hearing footsteps on the stairs, and in the halls above the dining area. Many
parties when taking their picture will line up on the stairs. There are several
pictures on the wall where you can see orbs of light in the background behind
the group. Many other celebrities stayed there as well. Rita Hayworth was said
to go and stay in her room for days at a time. When you drive by the area of the
hotel she stayed in late at night sometimes you can see a faint light.
Podunk - Podunk is an old town right by Bargersville. It's a really weird and freaky place that near-city teens go to. There's a bridge that if you drive on to & then stop & turn off your headlights, radio, and don't talk then you can see a baby crawl across the road. You can also hear it crying or laughing sometimes.
Headless Man - Go to on Greenville Pike. At the stop sign turn right at the first gravel road turn left, go past the bridge turn around and go back over the bridge. When you get over the bridge wait a few seconds and the turn around. Donít drive to fast or to slow but you can see a man on a horse without a head. The farther you get from the bridge the close it gets to you. It soon disappears.
Bass Lake Cemetery - there is a certain headstone that you go to at night. Surrounding the grave is this thick bladed grass, the grass is blood red during the evening. If you break off a piece it is that color all the way through, however it's not like that during the day. If you hold a lighter under the picture the mans face changes, to resemble that of the devil, he grows a beard, and flames flicker around him, for some people he even begins a mute laughing. When you hold up a flashlight the picture doesn't change like it did for the lighter and it doesn't work during the day. There is also said to be a beast that resembles a Werewolf that charges at cars.
The Battle Field Memorial - Back
in the 1800's there was a terrible battle fought on the grounds where the
memorial is. If you are anywhere close to the creek right after dark, then you

The Coffin - The trees on the old gravel road covers the road so good at anytime of the night even if the moon is shining bright you and not see anything other than what your headlights shine. The is a myth behind it saying in the 60's a cop busted a party in Bobtown and the teens killed him and put him in a hollow tree trunk and it grew around him. Sometimes at nights you can see his eyes in the trees in the coffin.
Tall dark and handsome - If you drive down Elizaville Rd. early in the morning (1:00am-3:30am) you are likely to see to see a man beast standing about 7feet tall that looks like a towering shadow. It's not certain why he wanders the fields, churches, and cemeteries (Browns Wonder). All that is known is he is in search of someone or something very important to him. If you get out of your car and scream bloody murder into the night sky he will track you down and drag your body into his domain where you will be eaten bones and all. Many missing people have been linked to the mysterious small town of Elizaville. Maybe a murderer is responsible, but this figure has been reported wandering those parts since 1924!!!
Haunted House - Located on 8th Road. Supposedly there was a family of four, husband and wife and son and daughter. The daughter and wife were raped and killed. The husband and boy were killed and hung in the barn. The daughter and wife were thrown in the adjoining woods. If you go out there at midnight and look in the barn, you can see the ropes hanging in the barn but can't see them during the day. The house is boarded up and the furniture is still in the same place as when they died.
100 Step Cemetery - At midnight, if you walk up the stairs on the grassy side of the cemetery, there are graves dating back to the 1860s all around. On one's way up you count the steps. When you reach the top, you must turn toward the open field and the ghost of the cemetery's first undertaker will appear. Without saying anything he will reveal the climbers own death to them in a vision. The hiker MUST proceed down the steps, counting them again. If they do not get the same number as they counted before then they will die the way they saw but if they do the vision was wrong. If anyone dares to try to reach the top or level ground by not using the steps, they will be pushed to the ground by a phantom hand which will leave a red imprint on the persons back for several days so those who see it can see the mark of the Devil. Another version goes like this, Carpenter's Cemetery lies just west of 340 and US 40 on CR 675. Locally it is better known as 100 steps. Legend has it that, on the darkest nights when you can't see your hand in front of you, you can walk up the broken steps of this cemetery and count 100 steps. As you walk down, you can count only 99. Its a hard trick to do when there are only 60 or so steps there any other time. The night must be total and you must not be able to see where you step. Legend tells of those trying to walk beside the steps on the ground and of people being knocked down hard to the ground with handprints appearing on their chest. The legend continues that if you are able to safely navigate the steps in the pitch of darkness and make the magical count, then that night before the rise of the sun, the spirit of the original caretaker will make known to you the manner of your death.
Haunted Church - the church is kind of old and if you look at the church you see a light in the church. You can see figures of body's looking out the broken vents and windows. At the top of the church where the steeple is you can see the the cross is broken and it looks like someone is hanging on the broken cross. You see lights fly past you and across the church its not a big light is a little light kind of looks like the spook light from spoke light hill. It can be a real calm day and the wind will start to blow. This church is on 300 w. the other way from spook light

Turn North on this road and go about 1.2 miles and you will come to a lane on your right side. It is hard to see because the grass is so thick. There will be an old shed on the left side of the road here. Take the lane back and you will discover the front wall of an old home (the rest has been demolished), several sheds, and a barn or two. The larger barn has a loft that you can access easily by a staircase. There is no real legend of this place, but it may be worth checking out!
Shadow Beasts - You'll see what seems to be a couple of bushes, and one obviously is, but the other seems to be fainter in shadow and doesn't pass as the car passes, it appears to run along with you. People have observed this during a midnight drive. They call them "Shadow Beasts." They also said that they witnessed more than one, and that they were much more interactive. But the strangest thing is that this figure absorbs light...when you attempted to disprove this "thing" by thinking it's just-another-bush theory, shine your headlights in the direction of the known bush, and the unknown shadow. The bush was immediately illuminated and confirmed of it's nature, the shadow, seemed to disappear completely. Then as you drive away, it will be there again, running right along with you.
