As much time as I spend on this site talking about eating local food and supporting local businesses, and lambasting those who don’t, it strikes me as somewhat hypocritical that all of my favorite ghosts are in New England and the American South… Anyway, seeing as how it’s Halloween, this struck me as a good opportunity to discuss local hauntings. Are there any well-known ghosts in Ypsi? How about Ann Arbor? It seems like there might be, what with all the young coeds from Normal College who drown in the Huron, weighted down by their petticoats when their canoes capsized, and all the young men going off to fight in the Civil War. Surely we have a ghost or two walking the railroad tracks late at night, swinging lanterns, looking for their heads. And, if not, I say we go out and get us one. Ypsi needs a good local ghost that we can all rally behind.
Are there any good local ghosts?
