Longfellow Hill is where teens would make out during OHS football games back in the 80's. Mary Owen, 15, was murdered and sexually assaulted in 1974 behind that school by 3 males. Longfellow has been torn down and OPS has reconstructed that hill. Many ghost tales were told through the years regarding that sad tragedy.
my grandmother told me that story many times. Awful wat they did to her

Daviess co. fair grounds, the big arena is said to be haunted after the tractor pulls every year ppl claim that you can see a large man waking the stands. The story ive heard is a man lost his son in the crowd and search for him a long time. Eventually heading to the police station to report a missing persons report he died in a tragic accident.

I dont think it is, iv been out there many many time and iv been out there at night playing in the stands now i dont see what was so fun about running up and down the seats lol my dad is a member and i think he would have told me about this

<quoted text>I was a kid (7th grade) when the Longfellow incident happened. Everyone was really scared for awhile, because there were threats that more girls would be murdered, which didn't happen. I knew Mary's brother. He was a year older than me. This murder happened on Easter sunday of that year. It was early April. I haven't heard any of the ghost stories. What are some of them?? I've always wondered whether there were any stories associated with that incident....I do know that a doctor here in town who was mentioned at the time as one of the suspects, committed suicide in 1991 and it was rumored that he left a suicide note on his computer stating that he couldn't live with his guilt over that incident. He was in high school when it happened, I believe.
In the early 80's the kids that came back from making out would say they saw her. Just sillyness. Or try to scare kids off from sneaking back there. It was really dark back then with more trees/shrubs. I just remember sitting on the end field bleachers up high during OHS games at night and looking around over that way wondering about all the rumors. I was scared to go back there because of it.

Does anybody know FOR SURE where the Wilson House is located, or where it was? I hear everything from HWY 56, HWY 54, Pleasant Valley Road, etc. If anyone can tell me for sure where it's located I'd appreciate it, thanks!

Wasn't a man murdered there in 02? That former principal wasn't he found there? He was killed by some drifter who also shot and killed the store clerk at the liquor store on 4th, i think.
That's what my grandmother told me because she knew him. He was joggin there. And If I'm not mistaken his wife was with him too but I don't remember if she said she was or wasn't.

I went to one of the wilson houses lol. It was in pleasant valley road around the huge houses over a hill and in the woods. No road or trail leading to the house, and it looked straight up like the Amityville horror house.
It didn't looke quite as old as people had told me though, and I didn't have any experiences in it, but it was creepy nonetheless.
Just watch out for the rich neighbors, they get a bit uppity whenever teenagers are crawling around the woods in front of their house at 10:30 at night.

I would check out Wilsons Ferry in Stanley, Elmwood Cemetery, and Lancaster Cemetery. Lancaster is hard to get to though.

There's an old abandoned elementary school out in philpot. It's definitely haunted. It's locked up but you can sneak in the windows.
I was in there one time with some friends and we went down to the cafeteria and it was pitch black and so 2 of them got in a closet to try and scare us and they started screaming, so we bolted. And turns out someone (somethig?) was holding the closet door shut and they weren't able to get out til like 10 minutes after the rest of us were out of the building. And we were on the first floor and you could hear footsteps and kids laughing on the second floor.
