HAUNTING AT GADSDEN HIGH SCHOOL
LONGEST LIST OF THE LONGEST STUFF AT THE LONGEST DOMAIN NAME AT LONG
The story of Gadsden High School.
Gadsden High School is
located in Anthony, New Mexico. And even though this building is
still standing and has students today, it also still houses students
from long ago.
One of the main spirits haunting
Gadsden High School is known by the name of Ana. How Ana died at the
school is debatable. Some think that she was forced into the
basement of the building and that she was then raped and murdered by
two boys she went to school with. Some though think that Ana walked
into a classroom on the second floor and killed herself there. But
there’s no doubt that however Ana met her end, she still hasn’t been
able to leave the school to this day.
Ana doesn’t terrify or scare the
students while she’s still on the school’s premises – or at least,
she doesn’t mean to. She simply walks around the school’s campus,
and back and forth from the building. She has even been known to
walk straight through walls, just to reappear on the other side,
continuing her walk as though nothing’s out of the normal.
There have been many students who have
witnessed Ana’s walk but two girls saw her in the actual room where
she took her life. These girls were standing at the bus stop at the
school, waiting for their bus to take them home after school.
Looking up to the last corner on the North side of the second floor
of the school, they saw a girl in white looking out the window at
them. The rest of the school was dark, because school was over. But
the girls both witnessed a girl that seemed to be completely
illuminated standing in that window. It’s also said that Ana still
appears in her school’s yearbook, although maybe not where she’s
supposed to be. Instead, she’s standing just behind the boys’
basketball team, where they are seated in front of the building at
the front of the school. Perhaps she’s there to forever remind some
of those boys of what they did to her?
But Gadsden High School has another
prominent resident too. This one though, is not seen and is usually
only heard in the last month of the year. This ghost is one of a
Hispanic janitor, who became locked in the basement of the school in
the winter of the late 1970s or the early 1980s. The janitor was
never found, and died in the basement before he could be rescued. If
you stand near the railing of this room, by the concession stand,
and it’s late December, it’s said that you can even hear the janitor
calling out for help.
This janitor is also joined by a third
ghost that resides at Gadsden High School. This ghost is that of a
young boy and his death too, is a tragic one. This boy ventured into
the dark basement of the school on a dare from his friends.
Unfortunately, he got lost and got trapped down there, dying before
he could be found. It’s also said that you can hear this boy too
crying for help.
Gadsden High School is definitely a place that can teach their
students about more than just academics. With so many spirits and
ghosts lingering around, there’s no doubt that some have learned a
few things about the after life too! But if you’re interested in
taking a look, be sure to ask a custodian where to find the ghosts –
they are often most familiar with the ins and outs of the school
