Jordan Commons/The Mayan (former Jordan High School)
by Ashley M. (Rasmussen) Ford
There is a long, deep legacy and history of Jordan High.
One of the biggest accidents involving JHS students was on Dec. 1, 1938, when a school bus carrying 39 students to Jordan High School in Sandy met head-on with a 50-car freight train during a raging blizzard. There were 15 survivors.
There are some suicides that I know/heard of and other numerous stories. As the school first opened in 1907, there is 100+ years of history to cover. I personally have not seen anything, myself.
I worked at the Mayan for 2 years and many other employees had been 5 -8 years +. I had friends that worked over in the theater next door and I have heard stories of people hearing voices and sounds when the restaurant or theaters would be empty or at closing LATE at night.
Some have seen a girl picking up her dropped books up from the ground and other harmless apparitions.
There have been other stories, but, they are hard to find and hear the whole thing. Hope this was a fun find/read for you!
