With “Halloween, 2015” lurking just out of sight in the failing light of a quiet October night, it seems fitting to welcome this special observance, by getting into the “spirit of the day” with an unveiling of some Bismarck area tales of strange happenings, eerie events and spooky things that sometimes go “bump” in the night.
The Bismarck Historical Society invites you to hear a presentation unveiling these Bismarck area tales, by Ms. Ann Vadnie, a well known local teacher, researcher and Historical Society board member, Wednesday, October 14, Meeting Room A, Bismarck Veterans’ Memorial Public Library, 515 5th St., Bismarck. Ms. Vadnie will guide the audience through a variety of places with allegations of, shall we say, “spirituality?”
Among the places that may harbor (or may have harbored) visitors from the nether regions are Fort Abraham Lincoln, the Liberty Memorial Building, and St. Alexius Hospital in Bismarck as well as buildings in Medora, Dickinson, and Dunseith, and structures on the campuses of both ND State University and the University of North Dakota. Here now is your chance to find out where (and maybe why) some local places are thought to be haunted, and by whom they are, (or may be), bewitched. In addition, the audience will be invited to share their own tales of ghosts, apparitions, and mysterious goings on.
So, come on out, and join in some lighthearted, history oriented fun and prepare for “Halloween, 2015.” Who knows, maybe, Little Casino or Dennis Hannifin, or the General himself will drop in for awhile?
