Most Haunted Places in Kansas
Where are some of the most haunted places in Kansas?
Kansas is one of those states that seems to be just crawling with ghosts. For example, there’s the infamous Sallie House in Atchison. It’s open for tours and is widely considered to be “super” haunted. Also in Atchison, there is also a widely known haunt called Molly’s Hollow, which lurks within Jackson Park. A strange, suffocating feeling is commonly reported here, and so are sightings of “Molly” herself – yikes. There’s also Fort Leavenworth, one of the most haunted military forts in the entire country. Commonly reported haunts at that location include those of soldiers, a priest, and more.

What are some genuinely creepy places in Kansas?
Kansas is one of those states that are just kind of ... creepy. There are a lot of wide, open spaces out here, and there’s something eerie about lonely Kansas roads at night. There are some places that are definitely much creepier than others, like the old theatre building in Leavenworth. Once upon a time, it was a church, but it was eventually converted into a theater and playhouse in 1985. During its time as a theater, many people reported bizarre occurrences going on, and to this day the building is known to be creepy as all get-out. In Ulysses, there’s a haunted elementary school (which, obviously, you can’t go exploring, so please don’t try). And, perhaps most famously, there’s the eerie Jacob’s Well, which is said to be all kinds of things: haunted, cursed, creepy – you name it. Kansas is a really great place to be when you’re a fan of all things paranormal and surreal.
