Atchison, KS is well known for ghosts.
“For more than 150 years, residents of this riverside town and its visitors have reported strange occurrences and the presence of otherworldly entities. As the hub of Westward migration in the late 1800s, thousands of pioneers embarked upon journeys here, launching from Atchison by wagon train, steamboat or the new Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Railroad. Maybe it was that displacement, those trials that kept spirits here. Maybe it’s the abundance of water porous limestone that reportedly holds spirits. Maybe it’s just that today’s Atchisonians are more open to the possibility that ghosts and other spirits do exist. Whatever the reason, thousands of people flock to Atchison each year to experience the paranormal, whether through leisurely tours, dinner events or paranormal investigation.
This year, Atchison is proud to host its first annual Atchison Spirit Fair. Join us at historic Theatre Atchison, which has its own unique paranormal history, as we host a collection of psychics, media, readers, therapists and much more! –Haunted Atchison“
They are having their first ever Spirit Fair and I’m going to be there. It’s the Theatre Atchison, 401 Santa Fe Street, Atchison, KS on Saturday, October 29 from 10am – 5pm. And it’s a haunted Theater. Maybe I’ll find out I’m a medium–har! :laugh:
I’m excited, although it’s too bad I’ll be working and not able to run around town checking out all the thrills and chills. It just sounds like a lot of fun! A cemetery tour, paranormal investigators, dinner with the spirits…great for Scorpio Season. Cool, huh? Come on out if you can!
Have you ever done any ghost hunting?
