Maplewood History: The Ghosts of Halloweens Past


Now and then, when the stars are in alignment, I’ll manage to do something timely, such as create a post containing links to all of the Maplewood ghost stories that I have been privy to, and then to actually remember to post them on Halloween!

This year I thought I was ahead of the game.  I began thinking about the title and created the one you see above a couple of days ago.  Then I thought I ought to go back and look at some of my posts on past Halloweens.  So guess what?  The title is exactly the same as the one I created five years ago.  Oh well, it must be a good one.

I hope you enjoy the ghost stories.

  1. Doug, I have a story about the home on Big Bend that you featured. I thought when I saw the headline you were referring to a real ghost. Anyway, one day my 5 daughters and I visited the women who lived in this home. They were delightful, offered the girls refreshments, and talked about the history of the neighborhood. Then one said that their nephew had died in the chair my daughter was sitting in. I never saw someone jump out of a chair faster! Needless to say after that comment, the girls could not get out of the house fast enough.
