Indianapolis - Noblesville Middle School- The Red Hallway
More Haunted places in Indiana submitted by our visitors, the following was submitted by Olivia and remains unaltered:
The red hallway is said to be known as a place where a cheerleader of the school was murdered on homecoming night by a janitor.
Though there is no online evidence of this happening, some students have gathered their own evidence. Some have ventured into the hallway, locked at all times so no one can enter.
The janitor supposedly murdered this cheerleader in the bathroom upstairs in the hallway, and painted the walls with her blood. The hallway is on the school map, but none of the 4 class rooms are numbered on the map, and the school uses the rooms for storage.
Students have asked teachers and staff about whether the rumor is true or not, and their response was always the same " We can't talk about that ".
If the rumor wasn't true, then wouldn't the school utalize those rooms, and the teachers wouldn't care if you talked about it or not. Big bleached out stains on the floor is some evidence that this could possibly be real, and putting two and two together isn't hard.

Wabash - Wabash County State Forest
Near the Salamonie Reservoir, black shadows have been seen running through the forest. Strange lights also have been known to appear, along with a foul odor. Witnesses have even claimed to see wolf-like creatures wondering about the forest. Hikers say that time seems to stand still while hiking and the trails appear to shift, causing some unlucky people to be lost.
Wayne Town - Lester B. Sommer Elementary
Some people say that a little girl lived there when Sommer was not built yet. She was tortured and abused by her father. Then one night, she tried to run away and her dad came chasing after her. He grabbed his gun, and shot her and she fell and died. To this day she is buried under Sommer, and apparently, at night you can go in the rest room and the lights will flicker and you can look under the stall and see her sneaker and boot.
West Pittson - The Smurl Haunting
The claimed incidents began in 1974 and lasted until 1989 in the home of Jack and Janet Smurl. Whether the haunting was genuine or an elaborate hoax is debated. According to the Smurls, the first signs of paranormal activity began in 1974. They reported that a television set burst into flames, and a stain appeared on a carpet overnight. Water pipes began to leak even though they were repeatedly re-soldered by a plumber, and scratches resembling those from a large cat appeared on paintwork and bathroom fittings. Toilets flushed without human intervention, footsteps were heard on the stairs, chest drawers opened and closed unaided, radios worked when they were not plugged in, rocking chairs rocked while empty, and a sour smell filled the house. In 1985, John and Mary claimed to hear loud, obscene language, and Jack and Janet's house often became extremely cold. Two days after this, an icy cold swept the house and a strange black human shape allegedly materialized in the kitchen in front of Janet. It was about five feet nine inches tall, and with no facial features. It later appeared to Mary Smurl in her kitchen. Several TV specials and movies where made about the experiences here.
