ST. LOUIS, MISSOURI HAUNTINGS
THE LONGEST LIST OF THE LONGEST
STUFF AT THE LONGEST DOMAIN NAME AT LONG LAST
Some hauntings in St. Louis, Missouri.
A visit to St. Louis can be more
exciting than you could ever imagine especially if you enjoy ghost tales. Ghost
stories abound in St. Louis and date back as early as 1870’s. Many people
believe that St. Louis is the most haunted city in the nation.
One such story in 1876 begins when a salesman from
Boston was visiting his parents in St. Louis. He was spending the night at the
Old Pacific House Hotel when in the middle of the night he was awaken by a ghost
that appeared to be that of his sister. The details on her face were very clear
even down to a scratch on her face. The next morning, he was still very nervous
about the evening visit of his sister that had passed away during a cholera
epidemic that he told about the event to his mother. His mother began to cry and
explained that when his sister had passed away and she was preparing her body
for the funeral, she accidentally scratched her face and then covered it with
make-up. No one knew this had occurred except for her and of course his sister.
Many ghost stories are told about the numerous
caves that honeycomb underground the city. One of the caves, English Cave, has a
Native American man and woman as permanent residents. As the legend goes, both
starved to death in the cave. The area in which you may encounter the crying
woman and unseen strangers speaking in a strange dialect is around Benton Park
at Jefferson Avenue and Arsenal Street.
At one time, the Edgewood Children’s Center was
known as the St. Louis Protestant Orphan Asylum. If you talk to anyone in the
Webster Groves area they call give you many stories of the ghostly children that
play on the lawns, appear and disappear in the Rock House, and even of one sad
little girl that is often seen playing alone near an old cottonwood tree as
These are only three separately stories of the
paranormal activity around St. Louis. If you talk with the locals there are
several caves, buildings, and yes, hotels that have permanent unseen guests.
