The Sinister Story Behind This Popular South Dakota Island Will Give You Chills

Many of South Dakota’s most haunted places seem to be in the Black Hills, in little towns like Deadwood where murders were common. But some stories are even older than that. Reports of strange happenings on LaFramboise Island have been circulating since the days of Lewis and Clark. Is it haunted? You decide.
