This Creepy Ghost Town In Kansas Is The Stuff Nightmares Are Made Of

What is it about ghost towns that is so fascinating? Is it the dated homes and businesses? The deafening silence? Maybe it’s the potential of a paranormal encounter? Whatever it is, we as humans seem to be drawn to it and cannot get enough. That being said, there is one abandoned town in Kansas that is the pièce de résistance when it comes to ghost towns with its abandoned cement factory, deserted homes, and the spirit of Bohr, a former United Kansas Portland Cement employee who allegedly met his demise after falling into a vat of concrete. His body was never recovered and is rumored to still be haunting the southeast town of Le Hunt.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now:

As you can see, the old cement plant, which closed its doors after the Great Depression, has been reclaimed by nature and is difficult to find due to towering trees and overgrown shrubs.

After Bohr’s tragic death, his fellow United Kansas Portland Cement Company employees encapsulated his wheelbarrow, pick, and shovel into a wall of concrete that can still be seen today.
