Haunted places in Oklahoma
Anadarko - Jeremiah's Bridge
Cars have broken down frequently on this bridge, sometimes even school buses, but only at night. People claim to have seen a Native American man jumping off the bridge, also they have seen blood dripping onto the windshield as they drove over the bridge. Dead animals have also been reported to be seen hanging from the trees that overhang the bridge but they are nowhere to be seen when they stop to cut them down. A team of investigators began taking pictures over the bridge when suddenly, while they were reloading the film, a flash came from under the bridge as if something was mimicking their camera flash. It came from under both sides and it was gone almost as soon as it happened. They decided to drive forward about 15 feet and got out to see a bright ball of white light floating towards them, they described it as being almost like a flashlight going on and off zigzagging through the trees. It continued to come closer to them as they were taking pictures of it. They claim that the pictures came out quite nicely.
Avard - Vina Rae's Grill & Graze
This cafe is inside the old high schools gymnasium. There have been orbs are visible in pictures. Also people have reported hearing footsteps, voices, knocking on walls as part of an everyday occurrence. Reports also say that a headless woman appeared on Memorial Day,2002. She was thought to be that of young woman murdered and burned about 50 years ago. People have been able to smell burning hair on some days amongst some other odors. There has been a possible portal located in the hall. Being touched is also a regular occurance.
Bartlesville - Labady Mansion
This is a 19th Century Victorian mansion, that lies in the woods, far far outside of the town, perched on the top of a huge hill over looking the country side for miles. This house has been the scene for 4 deaths in the early 20th century. Since then the house has burned twice, now only the rock walls and foundation remain standing watch over the miles of lonely woods. If you make it through the mile of lush vegetation, to the top of the hill, reports of people that have ventured there say, they were generally treated by their flashlights not working, strange, invisible people shouting their name, odd smells, strange animals running through the dark, and only a few meters in front of them. But probably scariest part of the reports is when what's left of the fireplace starts to blaze on it's own as they left.
Blackwell - Hollopeter
Rumors say that the old farmhouse southeast of Blackwell was where the family Hollopeter used to reside. There used to be an old iron bridge there with the wooden floor that Mr. Hollopeter's daughter hung herself on. It is said that you can sometimes see the rope from which she hung herself still hanging on the bridge. Apparently, they left the rope hanging there for a long time after the suicide. It is also said that if you drive past the house at night, and you look up into the top of the barn, you'll see the grandmother sitting in her rocking chair feeding the chickens on the ground. Also, Mr. Hollopeter is said to have appeared on his white horse down in the bottom of the river, which is very shallow, when you honk your horn and flash your lights while sitting on the bridge. This area floods very badly, so the old bridge is no longer there, it was finally washed away about 3 years ago.
Broken Arrow - The Devil House
About three miles down a gravel road (about 10miles away from civilization) there once stood a concrete house that was reportedly once owned by KKK members which has just recently been torn to the ground. Several reports have been made about bonfires seen one minute and then disappearing the next. Also of freezing cold temperatures inside the house even in the middle of summer. A sharp turn is located about feet from the rubble and at night there is a car that drives insanely fast around this turn and then will disappear into a nearby barbed wire fence out into a cornfield. No tire marks have ever been found.

There have been two people that have witnessed "Sally", but she is always seen backstage and only her profile is seen. Doors have locked, and on one account, a student was actually trapped within the room by an unknown and undescribable force. Things have been known to move and scratches and whispers have been heard.

He has only been seen a couple of times thereafter. The station was relocated in the mid-nineties to a different building on the campus. The old radio station (KNGX) has been torn down.

Tahlequah is the capital of the Cherokee nation, in the foothills of the Ozark Mountains, and is where the sad trail of tears episode in American history finished up...where a quarter of the displaced Native Americans died on the forced march. In the cemetery you immediately feel you are being observed, weird unfilled graves will appear and dissappear, sobbing and strange winds are common, and for some reason a dark man dressed in 1930's clothes will sometimes be seen...at times angry and giving chase to visitors at night.
Tulsa - Camelot Hotel

One worker refused to go up on the roof after repeatedly hearing footsteps and finding no one there. At one point the building was supposed to be totally empty and the security guard, while making night rounds in the parking lot, observed someone walking around on the upper floors of the building. The Engineer also observed several strange things, including desk drawers in the cubicle next to his that would be found open again and again after he closed them.
Waurika - Moneka Antiques and Haunted Tea Room
The sound of footsteps can be heard as well as voices when all is quiet.

Beads used to hang in the doorway to separate the kitchen from the dining room, and the owner says that one evening they separated and swayed back and forth, as though someone had walked through, but at the time, she was alone. The entire second floor is a chilling experience.

Late at night you can hear a baby crying upstairs and a man yelling. Downstairs you can hear keys jingling from the doorman and whistling from Lavern. The owner has been seen in the front lobby walking around and hovering over tables. Curtains that were undone the day before are tied back the next as if someone was looking out them.
Westville - trail of tears Indian cemetery
The road to the graveyard is about 2 miles long and the drive is very narrow so you have to move slowly. While you are driving you will feel like your being watched and the hairs on your neck will stand up. When you reach the cemetery you will see a small house or school building. If you stand on the porch you will hear voices coming from inside the building. There is also a dog that roams around the cemetery at all times of the day but its strange because there is no one around to feed him or take care of him he just wanders around the grave stones but never takes his eyes off of you. This is a private residence but you can go to the cemetery during the day

The Mansion was condemned and bulldozed late 1998. The cemetery remains as well as some haunting spirits.
Wynnewood - The Eskridge Hotel and Museum
This location was once a booming hotel, but was turned into a museum during the past century. Though several of the exhibits are strange, if not creepy, the location has a reputation all its own. Anyone who possesses the courage to pass through this museum alone will see strange things. Shadows pass where they shouldn't. Mannequins that are not animated move. Since the hotel was once highly populated, there is no way to keep track of the murders and other dramatic happenings that occurred here...but it is obvious that something happened. See for yourself.
