The Small Town In Iowa With A Terribly Creepy Past

The town of Ames, Iowa is best known for being home to Iowa State University, where thousands of young Iowans continue their education and embark on the first journey of their adult lives. Ames is hiding a bit of a secret, and you may not find it on an admissions brochure! Iowa State’s campus is one of the most haunted in the country, and nearly everyone who attends ends up with a ghost story of their own.
