Default Haunted places in IOwa

Has anyone ever heard of any haunted places in Iowa or better yet close to Central Iowa?
They say the Old Boone county home you could hear yelling and screaming and you could see apparitions of different people walking around.
Also in Madrid withint the last few years I heard of a place where the family couldn't take it any longer because of all the bad things going on and they finally moved out. (Don't know how true this is, or what actually happened to them).
Do you believe in ghosts??

Villisca has a house where someone murdered and entire family with an Ax and it is supposed to be haunted.

Some say the Kate Shelley bridge is haunted, but I don't believe it.

If you do a search for Haunted Places in Iowa -- you would be amazed all the things that come up.

Deception Hollow kinda up by Le High is also supposed to be haunted, or has a trail to hell or something -- I guess you go by one way and there are like 6 paths and go antoher way and there is like 7 or something like that.

There was an article in the BNR a while back, they had a paranormal group investigate the Boone Library and it is supposedly haunted too.

I went in-I like it-I like it-That is interesting-I would think though that Kate would be haunting the original place the accident happened and where she worked instead of the new bridge.

Oh yeah, our one of the cemeteries in Boone supposedly has a "glowing grave" - the one by McHose Park.

Do you ever wonder how true any of this is? If there is actually ghosts there? I would love to know-Won't go-but would love to know. Ha!

Hotel Pattee is said to have a few ghosts. So does the Sheldon Munn in Ames. And there's Old Botany on ISU Campus.
