George Rogers Clark Park – This was the site of the battle between the Pique tribe and the Kentuckians. An old house in the park is said to be haunted and reports of seeing a figure appearing in the window are frequent. This window can be viewed from State Route 4 as you pass by. Some witnesses have claimed to have seen ghosts of Indians and soldiers, including George Rogers Clark and Daniel Boone.

Gunn Road – A young boy was killed here years ago by a hit and run driver. It is said that if you stop your car on the spot marked by a sign and turn off your car, you won’t be able to restart it until you push it off the spot.

North High School – The stage in the auditorium is said to be haunted by the ghosts of a boy and girl. Before the school had been built, the grounds were used as a cemetery for the children’s home across the field. Most of the graves were moved to a nearby cemetery, but two were lost. The location of theses graves was near the auditorium’s stage. Reports of seeing a boy playing on the catwalks and hearing the footsteps and laughter of children playing are common.

Rockaway School – Located near Springfield on Route 40, this school is where a boy died in a fire he had set. At night, ghostly voices can be heard and the smell of smoke is heavy.

Wittenberg Avenue Old House – This old home on Wittenberg Avenue was once an old boarding house, possibly a bordello, and is at least 150 years old. The home has apartments upstairs that are no longer used, but they once were rented out years ago. One apartment in particular is haunted. At least two witnesses have seen two men wearing railroad hats. One witness reported that one man was halfway into the door digging and pitching out dirt, and the other man was watching the first man dig. Both railroad workers then turned, looked at the witness and faded away. There is a section of basement with a dirt floor directly under this apartment. It is believed something could be buried there due to the fact that it is the only dirt spot in the basement…the rest of the floor is concrete. There once was a railroad directly behind the house (now a bike path) and railroad workers often stayed in the home.

Wittenberg University – A site of multiple hauntings, see below for details.

York Street Homes – Many of the older homes on this street are said to be haunted, as they were used on the Underground Railroad. Some of the basements have tunnels that connect the homes. It is in the basements where strange noises are often heard. The spirits of the homes have woken the residents. Apparitions that have been seen are of men in Confederate uniforms.

 Wittenberg University 

Myes Hall – Myes Hall was once a Civil War hospital. A dying soldier’s last wish was to see his horse. The horse was brought into the room but refused to leave the side of his partner. The horse was shot and killed and dragged out of the hospital. The horse’s spirit is said to roam the halls.

Sigma Kappa House – This house is haunted by a man named Gus Sun and his daughter. Gus was a theatre owner and a booking agent headquartered in Springfield. Some headliners who Gus helped in the early days included Bob Hope, Ted Lewis, Sophie Tucker, and Will Rogers. Gus died of pneumonia at Mercy Hospital after breaking his hip in a fall on the street. He was 90 years old. Gus’ daughter supposedly died in a fire.
