This Little Town In MN May Have The Most Reported Hauntings
Grey Cloud Island is about the size of Solon Springs Wisconsin, but yet it has many stories and hauntings reported. Why is this little town so haunted?
There have been so many stories about Grey Cloud Island, that the website Haunted Rooms has said that locals are saying no to ghost hunters coming through because they are stirring up the spirits. In this small community of 300 people there seems to be a huge collection of stories and personal experiences, and a connection to the people who used to live there.
Grey Cloud Island was home to a large group of Native Americans, and there are a lot of the Native's buried there. A tribe of Mdewakanton Dakota Sioux lived in the area around the late 1700s early 1800s. There were also a collection of Woodland mound-builders. The area was known for great fur trading and had many traders visiting the area, but that is also where some of the trouble begins.
They have tried to settle the area, but now there are no schools, churches, or other things that make a town a town. Too many hauntings have kept this town from flourishing.
Here is a list of some of the things reported on Haunted Rooms:
In the cemetery, people have seen a former Indian Chief roaming around with a green lantern. Some say they just see the Chief, and others say they just see a floating green orb.
Some say when there's a full moon they can hear drums beating.
A white truck appears out of nowhere and chases visitors off the island, then vanishes into thin air. Some say the truck has no driver. Others say this isn't a ghost and is actually a local who's chasing ghost hunters out.
There's a group of 12 tombstones at the cemetery the all belong to nuns. If you walk down the line you can count all 12 but when you turn back around there won't be 12 anymore.
People have heard voices coming from nowhere.
Some have heard a woman screaming.
There's apparently a translucent man that people have seen carrying a rifle and smoking and wearing a red flannel and orange hat. One woman says she saw him just staring at her saying nothing and when she got in her car to leave she saw him sitting in her backseat.
One group that went to the island claimed to have heard a child whisper "don't come back" as they were leaving.
Some say they've seen a woman mourning the loss of her baby.
There was a person who drove to the cemetery and when they tried to start up their car again to leave it had lost all power. The car was pushed to the other side of the cemetery gate and it started up just fine.
The people of the city say they are happy with no one visiting to see spirits, plenty of things happen on their own. So, if you are thinking of going. Think twice.
