There is no more popular haunted place in Oklahoma City than the historic downtown Skirvin Hotel. Just a glimpse of the Haunted Skirvin story page
shows you that a LOT of people are convinced the ghosts of a young maid and her infant child frequent the establishment, particularly the 10th floor.
Out at the intersection of 119 and Air Depot, there remains a chimney and fireplace from an old house, long ago destroyed. The story goes that a witch lived there, and she will, from time to time, burn various items. When driving out to the old bridge a couple of miles down, some report cars won't start and headlights go on and off.
Edmond's Central Middle SchoolLocated on 9th street in Edmond, Central Middle School has a couple of haunting spirits, according to various websites and legends. There's a mysterious woman in old-fashioned clothes, a man that can be seen going into the restroom and a spook that apparently enjoys scaring people by turning on music.
This is one of those rare hauntings without a story behind it. But apparently, over the years many people claim to have seen the spirit of a long-haired woman in the OKC Zoo Aquatics building.
Puckett's Body ShopLocated on SW 29th, Puckett's Body Shop has one of the more interesting ghost stories in Oklahoma City. In a video you can find all over the net, including YouTube, images of a spirit were reportedly captured by a surveillance camera. Owners theorize it's the ghost of Tracy Martin, a woman killed in a car accident shortly before. Ms. Martin's car was moved to the body shop by her insurance company only a few hours before the image was seen on tape.
Halloween is spooky enough. How about getting a fright on... Labor Day? Well, according to some legends, the Student Union at Rose State College is haunted by the ghost of security guard who hung himself. Visit on Labor Day at 12:01 a.m., and they say you can hear the entire event.
With murder mystery dinners and more, the owners of the Stone Lion Inn, just north of the metro in Guthrie, are more than willing to capitalize on the legend. According to the story, a young girl named Augusta died in the house, and today, some claim to be hear a child's footsteps or see toys mysteriously scattered around.
Guthrie Masonic Boys HomeIt's not a surprise that a city with so much history would be the locale of several reportedly haunted places. Oklahoma's first capital claims another popular ghost story with the haunted orphanage where an evil head mistress supposedly killed many of the boys and buried them in the basement.
