Who is the group in the area? I'd love to know some other places, and I'd love to do the next class.
SCTC had the class. I believe the group was from St. Louis that came down to teach it.

Haunted things in and around sikeston
www.missourighosts.net/sikeston.html

At one time Harts was haunted. In the late 60's me and my girlfriend went parking there. We parked there many times and never saw anything. One Friday night when we were getting ready to leave the cemetary a light rain fell. My tires just kept spinning, I was stuck. I told my girlfriend I would have to walk down to the house and get help. It was the house across from the rodeo grounds. As I got out of the car it was scary as hell. I turned to her and ask her if she wanted to go with me. She said no I would wait here for you. As I'm going through the graveyard I fell in a hole and tripped. I got back up and started off again. I was sure glad to see the road. As I'm walking to this house I kept thinking about my girlfriend I left in the car. I make it to the house and ask the guy if he would pull me out. He wasn't to happy but he got on his tractor and we took off. As we came upon my car I could see her, she was fine. We left and as we were driving she said why were you trying to scare me. I had no idea what she was talking about and promised her I would never do anything like that. A chill went through her. She told me to the left of my door was someone standing and looking at me. She couldn't make out what it was but she described it as someone in white with scraggly long hair. She said as she saw the tractor approaching it walked off into the woods. The next morning I went out there to see if I could see any footprints. It being pretty sandy I did see my footsteps but no others. Although I walked over to where I fell and what I saw scared the hell out of me. People in the early 1900's were buried in wooden coffins. Most of these graves were sucken in from being rotten. But the grave that I tripped over was from someone of the same last name. I went home and told my dad and asked him who this was. It was his dad that died in 1916. How strange things happen but after that night I never went back when it was dark.

I think you can make anything scary if you really want to. I know some nights I get unnerved or a little scared just taking my dog out or taking the trash out. If I have been watching a scary movie or Unsolved Mysteries, sometimes even those specials on Lifetime, I walk a little faster and try to get my ass back inside a little quicker! One night my friend showed me the clip from 3 men and a baby where you could supposedly see the little boy's ghost standing by the window. I swear I kept my doors locked all the way home and kept checking the rear view mirror expecting to see the little kid standing in my backseat or something! I know I am silly but oh well.

I have heard about the light and about the blue baby All my life. That means over 40 years, unfortunately. My Brother and some friends claimed they saw the light on the railroad track many years ago. We always went ghost hunting as teenagers. Many graveyards and houses all around Sikeston and Benton to find some spooky things going on.
My dad claims he and some friends encountered the light on the tracks one night. said it blinked in and out; coming closer to thier car with each blink. Then it blinked on inside the car with them, and the engine died and the car went dead. Then it blinked out and back on outside the car on the opposite side, continuing down the tracks. They said they restarted the car and left, vowing never to return.

There are indeed real hauntings ... many of the stories are old legends, and circulated for years, but a percentage are truly real. The house I live in has two resident ghosts who play little tricks, and some times fight amoung themselves.

I have notarized statements from some who observed ghostly or paranormal activities at 247 North Ranney, and a couple of the older houses on North Kingshighway, just North of Baker Lane, which were also part of the underground railway in the civil war era.

Much of the phenomena can be explained in time, but perhaps 10 - 20% is absolutely real.

Just to let everyone know, the cemetary is actually very huge. The part that has a fence around it is just a small poetion. The road that turns in and goes west is actually on the cemetary. That hole hillside is graves. The ity threw all the markers away. My grandfather was buried there in 1916 and his marker has also been hauled off. Folks this is the pioneers of Sikeston buried their. I called the city they knew nothing what I was talking about.

That actually wasn't a ghost of a little boy. It was a mini-cardboard cutout of Ted Danson. It was a hoax - or at least a myth.

Well I don't care it still scared the sh*t out of me. Which is kind of the point of my post, there was really no reason for me to be scared regardless of what it was but I managed to scare myself I guess by buying into it.

Every other Friday night us guys would head over there. I never seen anything although my brother one night was parking with a girl. As they were making out a small white ball about the size of a ping pong ball came through the window and danced around on the dash. He was so scared that he couldn't get the key in the ignition. He got out of there......If you want to know a little history about Sikeston I have some interesting post on the title DOES ANYONE REMEMBER THE MALONE THEATER AND HODGE DECKER Sikeston was actually the first ROSEWELL....UFO Very Interesting

Is the house over here in Morehouse the old Zelmer house? It's the only one I can think of that used to be behind the mill. It has been gone for a long time. I've heard that the foundation is still there. I've never seen it. My cousin told me that on Halloween he saw the outline of the old house in the dark. I don't know if it's true or not. He may just have been trying to scare his baby cousin. I do know it's blocked off and you would have to walk. It's a pretty long walk from what I hear. The gentleman who owns the land is very nice. He'd probably let you go back there if you asked.

The house is not behind the old mill,. When you go over the tracks to the mill, turn left go down along side the tracks. On the right about half way down that road was a big house, with a point on top (I think). That's the house.

On Sarno, there is a green house that I thought always looked like a castle. It has like a tower looking top on the front. This might be it or I'm just confused.

I really enjoy reading this thread. I rather have always prided myself in not believing in ghosts and thought I was not timid about things that go bump in the night; however, I am not so sure since I was working late one night and out of the corner of my eye saw something move in outside the window. I spun around, felt the adrenalin of the fright/blight mode kick in and screamed in reaction while getting up out of my chair-- before I realized the reflection was of me. Oh, me, did I feel silly after that!
