Hello again all,
Below please find a story that I found onthe internet about the school I
attended as a child. It turns out that the site was for a group of people
who investigate hauntings in Indiana. Here it is:
Something strange happened to me and several others - including children -
when we stayed at a school for the Blind in Indiana. The only problem was I
am the only one to have seen the "apparition." Others heard it, felt it,
sensed it but I got to see her. A young, thin girl. I immediately - at the
time- felt she was one of the skaters getting up in the middle of the
night, but she was not.
It happened during the summer in 1996. Many other things happened
leading up to the "event" such as electrical socket blowing up, doors
closing, lights going on (not off), television channel changing constantly,
voices, drafts, bunnies outside the windows of this eerie place every
the face on the door of the closet in one of the dorm rooms, things
vanishing, the cabinet doors in the kitchen swinging open - then slowly
on the van going up and down not allowing anyone out of the van (or in) for
quite some time, etc., etc., etc. Like I said several people witnessed
or felt someone was watching. (the van was rented by the ice arena).
The night I saw the "girl", I had several young ladies staying in the
office to sleep due to the fact the television changed channels, turned off
on again -- they were truly frightened. I allowed them to camp on the floor
of the office and as I was speaking to them I walked over to the office
and looked thru the blinds and saw this young, 13?, blond thin girl walk up
to the TV area, pause, tilt her head to one side, she then lifted one
in puzzlement (?) and I turned away and told the girls they awoke Johneen.
It was not Johneen. This girl was way shorter - and way thinner. And she
had on different pHs.
It was weeeeeeeerd. I still get chills. Are there any reports that a
child may have been a victim of something there at some time? The dorm
many children at different times, not all blind, many requiring constant
supervision and meds. We just happen to rent the place for the summer.
Several things had happened to my 10 year old as well. It was very
creepy. How could I find anything out? I heard I shouldn't pursue this
since I was
the only one that "saw" her - that I may be inviting others????
The skaters and I nicknamed the young spirit, Jane Doe. I had complained to
some female office workers (located in another building during all this fun)
and they looked at each other and said the ghost must be back. I was
peeved. I said I don't care who's back I don't want them in the dorm we are
Other things that would happen, would doors to rooms that were strictly
forbidden for use by us would suddenly be open to the camping skaters. They
the stein way in the auditorium for fun, the garage where all the little
bikes for the mini race track, the bowling alley, the gym, etc. These rooms
only open to certain girls - when they got in they'd call everyone else.
Rooms that were locked at the end of the spring semester but that somehow
unlocked when the skaters arrived. I hated it. I never could find them.
Somehow, I get the feeling that it was a hoax put on by the employees of
the school. But how they did the vision of that girl walking across the
(she was barefoot) and stopping right at the end of the kitchen area - is
way beyond anything I can understand. How did they know I would go to the
at that moment and look beyond the blinds????
The grounds had storm tunnels, a bell tower complete with nasty looking
gargoyles, a reflection pond with dead animals floating in it, and some
things that just looked unfriendly. The face appearing in the wood grain of
the closet door in the dorm seemed to only gel my feelings on the place
visited. It didn't help when the skaters wanted to rent videos about
vampires and such. I lasted 9 out of the 10 weeks. Nothing remotely close
like this has ever happened to me or my daughter since.
I tried to ask around and was told to go to some state place to look up
old death records - from when?? We even tried to look thru archives of the
Paper but again, from when? If something did happen I have a feeling it
was hushed. That they claim the child died either en route to a hospital or
at the hospital. It would not look good for a State run place that cares
for special children - to lose one somehow. I don't believe that would ever
Oh, after the year of fun - the ice arena changed dorms. They still stay
at the same School but a totally different dorm. The newer one - with air
No More Camps. : )
