Ghostly Tales of Oklahoma 66

Claremore, Oklahoma - Long ago a Native Americanstudent was attending the Military Academy at what would later become Rogers State University. Like we have unfortunately heard too many times in the past, the youth was accidentally killed during a hazing ritual. Obviously his spirit is not at peace as he is said to haunt the halls during the midnight hours. Baird Hall is where the Indian's footsteps have often been heard in an otherwise empty building. Two janitors have reported hearing these odd footsteps as well as toilets flushing in empty bathrooms and other strange phenomena throughout the building.


el reno oklahomaEl Reno, Oklahoma - If you are traveling the Mother Road between Weatherford and El Reno, Oklahoma at night, keep your eyes open because legend has it that this part of the old Mother Road is haunted by an elderly humped back man. Said to appear in a brown trench coat, wearing a Bogie style hat pulled down over his eyes, he has often been spotted walking along the old highway, especially on foggy or rainy nights. Reportedly, one person picked this old figure up one wet evening and the eerie little man wouldn't talk to him. Soon, the vagabond tried to jump out of the moving car. The driver immediately pulled over to the side and let him out, only to spot the man walking again several miles ahead of the driver on down the road. Another person said that they thought they had hit the man with their vehicle but when they stopped to check on him, no one was there. Do you believe it? Keep your eyes peeled.

A Reader's Story

While driving between Yukon and El Reno, Oklahoma on a clear day, I suddenly saw a white mist run in front of my car. I slammed on the brakes as I felt the car hit someone or something, the white mist falling beneath the front of the vehicle. My twelve year old daughter was with me and looked at me as if I'd lost my mind. I stopped and got out, looking under and behind the car as my daughter looked on. There was nothing there. This incident has haunted me for years. Though I continue to travel that same road every day, I have never had the experience again. If if do, I'll let you know. - Carol, July, 2005


Editor's Note: Once again we have taken down a story because of vandalism created by "so-called" ghost hunters. Criminal behavior is NOT ghost hunting! Vandalism and trespassing are nothing more than crimes against property and I suspect those who are guilty are little more than wreckless revelers out looking for a good time. For legitimate paranormal researchers, this type of behavior reduces their credibility and overall, gives ghost hunters a bad name. It has also significantly reduced the number of "ghostly legends" that appear on this website.
