Local History

As I've said before, we have a local history room.  I get a lot of questions dealing with it, but today's question was really interesting.  A woman wanted to know the history of her house (she'd had it for over a decade) because it was haunted.  Not by a nice ghost, but (in her words) a mean, nasty one.  It makes me wonder, with the old houses in the City, if most of them aren't haunted.  An old City with a dark history (started as a logging town), with a lot violence.

There's a few books about haunted Michigan, including one by a Reverend Gerald S Hunter that has a chapter about my City.  Very interesting books!
