The Ghost of Minnie Quay, Forester Township, Michigan:

(Not my photos)

​The shores of #LakeHuron in Forester Township, #Michigan are said to be #haunted by the #spirit of a teenage girl named Mary Jane “Minnie” Quay, who committed #suicide on April 27th of 1876 at the age of fifteen. The tragic story of #MinnieQuay is considered by many to be one of Michigan’s most famous #folklore tales, with many different versions of the story being told over the years. In one popular version of the story, Minnie Quay is engaged to a sailor who is killed at sea which drives her to commit suicide, but very little #historical evidence is available to validate these claims. Newspaper articles published around the time of her #death, however, allude to some type of scandal or other gossip surrounding Minnie which may have caused her to plunge herself from a dock into Lake Huron, ending her own life. Some historians speculate she may have become #pregnant out of wedlock or had an #affair, while others even claim the young woman was involved in some type of #prostitution ring. After her death, Minnie Quay’s family even requested an autopsy to determine if #rumors surrounding her #pregnancy were true, but the results were undetermined. Ever since, those walking along the shores of Lake Huron claim to encounter the #spirit of a young #woman in a white dress believed to be Minnie Quay. Some even claim that her #ghost tries to urge others to commit suicide as she did by luring them into the lake. Others report hearing the disembodied sounds of a woman crying and moaning with grief. ​In the years following her death a popular #folk song was even written about her, called The Ballad of Minnie Quay.

Stimson Hospital in Eaton Rapids, Michigan:

(Not my photos)

Stimson #Hospital in Eaton Rapids, #Michigan was built in 1877 by a man named John T. Sweezey as a private residence, and was known at the time of its #construction as one of the most expensive and lavishly decorated #houses in town. In 1917 the building was sold to three #doctors named Dr. Charles Stimson, Dr. Francis Blanchard, and Dr. William Claudius Puffenberger, and in 1918 was opened as a hospital with beds to accommodate up to twenty #patients. The #historic hospital remained in use until 1957, and was later converted into an #apartment complex during the 1970’s. It is said to be #haunted by the #spirits of numerous men and women who died of #disease or injury when the #building was used as a hospital, including Dr. Francis Blanchard who was killed after accidentally stepping into an empty #elevator shaft just a few months after the hospital opened. Residents living in the apartment building over the years have reported encountering #apparitions and #ShadowFigures, as well as the #ghost of a man believed to be Dr. Blanchard. Many also report witnessing objects being moved by an unseen #entity, and hearing disembodied voices, whispers, and other strange sounds which appear to originate from the building’s #basement. One popular #UrbanLegend also claims that one of the hospital’s founders, Dr. Puffenberger, committed #suicide in the building, however these rumors were later debunked as being historically inaccurate. In 2017 the former hospital was purchased again and reopened as a medical #museum, which offers ghost tours to help fund future renovations, with plans to eventually turn the old building into a historic bed and #breakfast.

Music Box

Music Box

Anonymous submitted:

Once when I was little, I had to stay at my grandma’s house for the night. I slept in my uncle’s childhood bed. There was a music box that, even during the day, really made me uncomfortable. It was just two wooden frogs on a lil’ wooden stage that would rotate and play a basic jingle if you turned it and let it go.

I woke up in the middle of the night that night. I felt deeply uncomfortable for some reason, like something or someone was watching me. But as far as I could tell, nobody else was in the room. It was almost pitch black, but a little light coming in from the windows showed me that the music box, which had been on the opposite side of the room, was now on the nightstand right next to my head. I swear I saw it turn a quarter inch. And then the music started to play. But it was low, like a croak. I thought I could hear a deep voice muttering something from it. I screamed and ran out of the room before it stopped spinning and finished its song.

James: 8/10 I gotta get me one of those. Thanks for sharing the scares!
