Christmas Eve Indian – The spirit of an Indian in full dress knocks on the doors of residents in town, trying to tell them where a buried treasure is located.


Edward McClain High School – This school, built in the late-1800s, is haunted by a ghostly chandelier. Mr. McClain wanted a senior staircase made of marble and Mrs. McClain wanted to add a chandelier. The chandelier was never added, but after Mrs. McClain’s death, a beautiful big chandelier could be seen through the window at night. The chandelier is regularly seen from the Sixth Street side of the school despite the fact that no chandelier is there.
