October is the month for ghouls and ghosts and all things spooky. What better way to get into the Halloween mood than to take a ghost tour? I’m talking real ghosts, in places where people claim to have experienced apparitions. We’ve dug into our archives and found three ghost tours that we’ve taken over the past few years in Midwest cities. Although we haven’t seen or heard any ghosts, the stories we heard on the tours have me believing.
The young couple that moved into the Oliver Comstock House had a notion to name their new baby Hannah. Within days of Hannah’s birth, strange events began occurring. The piano keys were banged on in the middle of the night. The name “Hannah” was written on the wall in pencil. Doors opened and closed on their own. The couple soon discovered that the home’s original owner, Oliver Comstock, was married to a woman named Hannah. The Comstock House is just one of several haunted homes we stopped at during our horse-drawn Marshall Carriage Company ghost tour of Marshall, Michigan, the only such tour in the United States.
