What are some truly creepy places in Oklahoma?
Oklahoma is a beautiful state and a lovely place to call home, but it’s definitely not without its creepy, eerie, or otherwise downright weird locations. For example, the old Fort Washita Historic Site in Durant is both historically significant and spooky. Legend has it that it’s haunted by the ghost of a woman named Jane, who lived here in 1842 as the Civil War broke out. She was murdered by a gang of thieves who arrives demanding she give up her valuables; upon her refusal, they beheaded her. Not only is she said to still roam the grounds, but there was even a recorded case of her allegedly possessing a young girl in the early 1900s. Yikes. There’s also Historic Fort Reno, in El Reno, where cold spots and unaccompanied footsteps are heard often and visitors sometimes claim to see full-body apparitions all over the park. Yeah, we’ll pass, thanks.
What are the most haunted places in Oklahoma?
As we alluded to in the paragraph above, Oklahoma is filled to the brim with haunted places that are sure to creep you out. There are some places in Oklahoma that are quite notorious for being haunted, like the Masonic Boys’ Home, in Guthrie. This building was an orphanage in the early 20th century, and it’s said that the treatment of the children there was, to put it lightly, less than ideal. Supposedly, it’s haunted by the restless spirits of children who were brutalized and murdered on the grounds, as well as a worker who was said to have committed suicide on the campus. It’s not uncommon to experience cold spots, disembodied crying and screams, orbs, objects moving on their own, and electricity behaving strangely ‘round here. While in Guthrie, you’ll also want to check out the Stone Lion Inn, which is allegedly one of THE most haunted places in the Sooner State. It’s as haunted as it is elegant, and legend says that it’s haunted by the ghost of a child who died accidentally here in the 1920s. Need more Oklahoma hauntings in your life?
