TW abilist language, fictious murder.
I grew up in a small town in Minnesota. We had two local ghost stories, Lantern Man, and “Crazy” Annie. Lantern Man was the spirit of a turn of the century janitor/handy man who died in a fire. To see him you’d have to drive down a specific country road late at night, cross the train tracks and wait. He’d appear as a glowing red light that would sway back and forth, the lantern that started the fire. What’s interesting is lantern men exist in east Anglican folklore, but our neck of the woods was all german immigrants. Plus lantern men supposedly enticed folks into bogs, and this isn’t a boggy area
Annie is supposedly the soul of a pioneer woman who killed her husband and two children. If yo parked on the bridge in Fox Hollow at midnight on a fogy night, her hand prints would appear all over your car.
My question for y’all. Do you have any local ghost stories, and if so how big was your town. We we’re only a town and surrounding farming community of about 3000. Anytime I’ve asked ffolks from larger communities they never seem to have any stories, which seems counter intuitive
