Not Many People Realize These 6 Little Known Haunted Places In North Dakota Exist
North Dakota has a few notoriously haunted places, even some that host haunted houses every year for the brave and daring. But there are a few places where supposed paranormal activity lurks and not many people know about them. Here are 6 little-known haunted places in the Peace Garden State that not many people realize are there:
1. Sims, North Dakota
The town of Sims, North Dakota is mostly just remnants now. All that's really left are some dilapidated buildings and the still-running church. Next to the church is the parsonage, which has a long history of reported hauntings. According to years of reports, a ghost of a woman lives in the parsonage and has run out multiple residents. It's out in the middle of nowhere and takes some digging to find, but the locals all know about the stories and some say it's all true.
2. The Old Armory in Williston
This historic building in Williston is over a hundred years old. It is listed on the National Registry of Historic Places and looks quite majestic from the outside. On the inside, however, it is known to be haunted. Mannequins in the building have been reported to move on their own and disembodied whispering has been heard inside.
3. Harvey Public Library
According to legend, the small town of Harvey's public library has been haunted ever since it moved into that spot. That's because it is supposedly built on top of a home that was formerly the site of a murder. Decades later, the library is said to experience unexplained activity after hours, such as books being pulled off of shelves.
4. White Lady Lane
The legend of White Lady Lane is one that sends chills down people's spines. This rural road near Leroy, North Dakota is said to have sightings of a woman in white who was either killed on that road or killed herself, depending on the urban legend you hear. Many people have claimed to see her ghostly apparition on the side of the road at night.
5. Trollwood Park
Fargo's Trollwood Park has an interesting history. Today it is a bright and lovely park with playgrounds, disc golf, and plenty of paths to walk on, but a long time ago it was a community farm for those who had nowhere else to go, work, or live. Many of people died there and were buried, some in unmarked graves. Today it is said you can see a ghost standing near a particular willow tree near where the graveyard was.
6. Medora Fudge & Ice Cream Depot
Who would think that a fudge and ice cream store in Medora would be haunted? There are more chilling aspects to this place than the ice cream. According to some accounts, this shop is visited annually on a particular day by a particular ghost. That day is the birthday of the ghost, a female figure. The reason she haunts this spot on her birthday is unknown.
