This summer has seen a huge number of people trying new things, and one of those things is ghost hunting! Iowa is a great spot for some Spector hunting. Ghost hunters come out to Iowa to find the next big spot where they can prove that ghosts exist. Many amateur ghost hunters start right here in the Midwest since there are so many great spots to "find ghosts."

Places like Edinburgh Manor are once again open for those who want to explore the legendary abandoned asylum. Edinburgh is about an hour's drive away from Waterloo, so let's look at some closer spots.

Former Johnson Funeral Home - East side Waterloo

The rumor was that this spot was was not burying bodies of those un-paid in the home... Yikes, not getting burred can make for some angry spirits.

Sheep Barn Hill cemetery - Waterloo

This appears to be a favorite for local ghost hunter... Then again most cemeteries are.

Black Hawk County Cemetery - Waterloo

Speaking of cemeteries, this one is sitting adjacent to the Islamic Cemetery. This spot which features a long row of dozens upon dozens of babies that all died mostly in the early 1930’s. This spot has similar rumors behind it like a popular Haunted Davenport spot in Iowa.

Renssaeller Russell House - Waterloo

A home from the 1800's with a story of a young girl drowning? Makes sense why this spot is another local go to for those hoping to snap a pic of a ghost.

St. Francis Hospital/Pinecrest Building - Waterloo

It was built in 1912 and served as a hospital for 55 years. That's a lot of years for some rumors of ghosts to start...

There are so many other local spots many love to visit. What is your go to spot? Do you plan on hunting ghosts this year?

Ghost In Our Iowa Basement?

As a radio station, we have a lot of people here who have seen some scary stuff. Do you see any ghosts in these photos? I can't, but I also don't know what to look for.

This Isn't The First Face Caught On Camera Here!
In September of 2020 the band "Pit Lord" came to the building to shoot a music video. They shot it in the basement and for a split second in the recording, you can make out a face of what looks to be a woman. You can see that video here.

With a history of ghosts, it's safe to say the basement of our building is CREEPY!
