It’s Time to Tell Tales of Ghosts
Phoenix is home to both the living and the dead and as we found out in our last post Phoenix & It’s Ghosts there are more than a few places in the area where you can stumble upon the paranormal. Check out our last post if you missed it or keep reading to get spooky!
Pioneer Living History Museum
The Pioneer Living History Museum tells more tales than just the traditional history of the buildings preserved there. Ken Johnson didn’t have an idea that he would be encountering more than what can be seen by the naked eye when he signed on as the museums caretaker. Johnson has reported hearing children singing in the old school house and the icy feeling that only a paranormal presence can cause on a hot summer day in Phoenix.
One San Marcos Place
One of Phoenix’s oldest hotels, that was built in 1913, has been the place that may famous people throughout the years have stayed. It is also one of the most haunted locations in the metro Phoenix area. Staff and visitors have reported moaning, sighting a female figure, and receiving phone calls from extensions that don’t exist.
Chandler High School
If walls could talk, we are sure that Chandler High School’s walls would have a few things to say. Built in 1914, the high school is one of the oldest schools in the state. Teachers, students, janitors, and others have reported strange experiences and one custodian refuses to care for the second-floor in the second wing after having a particularly disturbing experience.
Highland Junior High School
Chandler High School isn’t the only haunted school in the area. Highland Junior High School, is the home of a particular ghost called Lily. It is rumored that Lily was killed on the property years earlier during a farming accident. She makes her presence known by flushing toilets, slamming lockers, and turning on blow-dryers.
9802 N. 58th Ave.
Some homeowners decide their residence where they lived during their life is the place that they will spend their eternity. Such is true for the home located at 9802 N. 58th Avenue in Glendale. It is reported that an old woman in white and a man wearing a black suit wander around the premises.
