What's one of the creepiest places in Kansas?
There are plenty of creepy places in Kansas. However, some are much creepier than others. One of the creepiest places in Kansas is St. Jacob's Well. St. Jacob's Well is a water-filled sinkhole that's located within the Big Basin Prairie Preserve near Minneola, Kansas. Many people believe this sinkhole is quite haunted. The reason why is because, as legend has it, you can't see the bottom when you look into it. If fact, many people believe the sinkhole is bottomless and whoever tries to touch the bottom of it will drown. One of the most popular stories surrounding St. Jacob's Well involves a cowboy and his horse. As the story goes, the cowboy tried swimming in the water-filled sinkhole and eventually died. Numerous people have reported drowning sounds and the wailing screams of a horse. Could it possibly be the spirits of the cowboy and his horse? It sounds like it very possibly could be.
Are there any ghost towns in Kansas that leave most people with an eerie feeling?
Like most other states, Kansas is home to numerous ghost towns. For one reason or another, several people decided to up and leave the town they were currently living in. One of these ghost towns is Le Hunt. Le Hunt isn't just any ghost town. It's a ghost town that leaves most people with an eerie feeling. At one time, Le Hunt was a thriving town that employed many residents through its United Kansas Portland Cement Company. Unfortunately, after the cement company went out of business following the Great Depression, most of the residents left town. All but one, that is.
