Kicking off my countdown to Halloween is a Cleveland ghost story. I have been on my share of these sorts of ghost-chasing adventures. More spooky newspaper stories will follow – getting spookier and spookier as we get closer and closer to Halloween.
For some free newspaper ghost-hunting of your own, go to the Library of Congress’s Chronicling America site, select the “advanced Search” tab, and find those ghosts!
Without further adieu, I present: “The Ghost Discovered”!1
