Nestled in the downtown of Fort Wayne Indiana sits a quiet and reserved home, but this isn't any average placec this is a mansion...it is the The Bell Mansion. And yes the ghosts are real!

Join us as we talk with Lindsay and Ricky, two of the mansion's docents who have both worked and experienced some of the most frightening paranormal experiences. From ghostly children running in the upstairs bedrooms, to the devoted maid Maria who is still tending to the rooms she once cleaned and did we mention the hundreds of thousands of dead bodies that went through the doors? This beautiful example of architecure and marvel was a funeral home for nearly 90+ years! So to say there spirits is an understatement.

Same architect as the University of Saint Francis' Bass Mansion and The History Center both in Fort Wayne.  Robert served as a state senator, assistant U.S. Commissioner for Indiana, huge investor in natural gas, (the reason Fort Wayne & even Chicago got natural gas when they did) and was a prominent lawyer. Clara helped form the first classes at the Fort Wayne Art School and was the co-founder of the Fort Wayne Museum of Art.  The couple was originally from the Muncie area but moved up here for business purposes. They were a very prominent couple during their years here in Fort Wayne. Not only did Clara leave her forever footsteps at the Art Museum his law firm is still going strong known as the Barrett-McNagny law firm serving the local area still today. They only had one child Bessie but unfortunately due to illness died at 11 months old. After Robert's death in 1901 the home was sold to William K. Noble who ran a lumber company that operated in 3 states. His family of 3 lived there for 22 years and sold the building for $50,000 to The Klaehn Funeral home. In 1935 the west side addition was added due to high demand. At this time funerals were no longer held in the residents home as they were done in the 1800s. Today there are over 14,000 square feet in this absolutely breathtaking mansion. No detail has gone unnoticed. It remained a funeral home for over 93 years. Until they left the building in 2018 and the Sturm's bought the building in 2020 to preserve its beauty. We want to preserve our precious history first and foremost. History is the reason why we are all here today!  We are SOOO PASSIONATE about preserving and sharing this place with the world! Everyday we are getting creative so we can keep this mansion in one piece (not 8 different apartments or even a parking lot). We hope you love this building half as much as we do! Please don't hesitate to reach out with any questions or concerns! We are very open minded and easy going people looking to preserve a giant piece of Fort Wayne's history!

 Do you love spooky stories? Do you love haunted places? Then we have the show for you! As we begin our yearly trek to Upper Michigan we bring you some scary and entertaining legends and lore of haunted areas and places in and around upper Michigan. Strange ghost sightings, haunted cemetaries, inhabited buildings and even our own personal ghost encounters!

 Haunted Locations in Sault Ste. Marie Michigan

Soo Brewing Company/Second Childhood & Adult Too– Under prior ownership as Superior Impressions, the team conducted several investigations on the premises.

The building is believed to be haunted by a former ship captain whose family originally had the structure built, and ran their retail operations after leaving the lakes. Activity includes disembodied footsteps from the upper floor and formerly, and a Christmas caroler doll which would be moved to different locations in the store after the building had been locked for the night.

The Antlers Restaurant– Formerly operated as a speakeasy and brothel, the building is believed to be haunted by both a lady of the night & possibly a waitress. Doors have been known to open on their own and office equipment to turn on and off by itself. On one investigation, a team member was pushed on a stairway in the kitchen by an unseen force.

Museum Ship Valley Camp– Although no known tragedy is associated with the ship itself, it does house artifacts from shipwrecks that resulted in the loss of life. On one occasion, a heavy coughing sound was heard in the old coal furnace area. When asked what the sound was, a voice was captured on a recording device stating “I am coughing”. Shadowy figures have also been reported on the ship’s deck at night.

Ramada Ojibway Plaza– Believed to be haunted by Beatrice, the wife of a former owner. Rooms occupying what had consisted of her former suite have purportedly had patrons find their suitcases unpacked and rooms made up, although housekeeping service had not entered. There are also reports of a tall man in dress clothes and top hat being spotted wandering through the lobby area.

The Satisfied Frog Pub– Reported activity includes nickels turning up on a formerly vacant bar and the spirit of a little girl who has been both seen and heard at the rear of the establishment. In a picture taken several years back, a gnarled, disembodied hand is seen gripping the shoulder of a young lady. No explanation has ever been reached as to where the “hand” came from.

 

Thanks for tuning in this week, remember we love our listeners! HAve a wonderful week and stay spooky!!

The Ghost Bride of Ravine Cemetery

Ravine Cemetery is located just outside of downtown Sylvania, Ohio and it is here, in this quiet neighborhood cemetery, that stories of a phantom bride have captivated the imaginations of many for over 50 years.

The story of the ghost bride entered northwest Ohio folklore in the 1970s when a cemetery caretaker shared his knowledge of the legend with a friend, who, in turn, shared it with a Toledo Blade newspaper reporter.

The legend involves the spirit of a woman who returns to the cemetery to visit the graves of her former husbands, three of them. It is said she will appear at dawn on the anniversary of either their death or their marriage, no one is sure which.

There are many, including me, who suspect this legend is based on an actual person but, so far, the identity of the ghost bride remains a mystery. 

City Tavern (Philadelphia, Pennsylvania)

A bride and her bridesmaids were preparing for the wedding when one bridesmaid accidentally knocked over a candle, setting the curtains on fire. The fire spread throughout the tavern, taking the lives of the bride and her bridesmaids.  The ghost of the bride is active today, especially during wedding events at the tavern. Some wedding photographers have even reported seeing her apparition appearing next to the (living) bride when looking through the camera viewfinder. Although, no one has caught her on film.

Hotel Conneaut (Erie, Pennsylvania)

Elizabeth and her new husband stayed in Room 321 on their honeymoon. Their blissful vacation was interrupted by a raging fire in the hotel. The husband was able to get out alive, but Elizabeth was trapped in the room and died. The heartbroken bride still roams the third floor, looking for her husband and sobbing. Wearing a wedding dress, she leaves behind the smell of jasmine.

Curves (Onondaga Hill, New York)

A similar story appears in Onondaga Hill folklore. About 60 years ago, a young couple died in a car crash on a very snaky road just after their wedding. People claim to see the bride on Halloween. Her glowing figure floats down the road in a wedding gown, searching for her husband. Some say she carries a bright orange lantern. To read more about this legend, visit Weird New York.

Baker Mansion (Altoona, Pennsylvania)

Anna Baker, the daughter of the rich Elias Baker, fell in love with a local steelworker. Her father forbade her to marry him, because he was of lower class. She died alone. Much later, The Baker Mansion (in Altoona, PA) was made into a museum and a wedding dress was put on display in a glass case in Anna’s bedroom. When there is a full moon, the dress violently shakes, sometimes to the point of almost breaking the glass. Myth says she is so mad she never got to wear a wedding dress, and therefore shakes it in anger. Some people often report seeing it dance by itself (with the shoes tapping along).
