Farrar School in Maxwell, Iowa was built in the middle of nowhere to replace one room schoolhouses throughout its vast district.

2707

BONUS LIVE EPISODE

Special Live Episode recorded at the haunted Mount Washington Resort in New Hampshire. The story of the paintings is revealed, then: taking over three decades to construct, Eastern State Penitentiary was designed on the idea that solitary confinement and complete silence would instill regret in the heart of prisoners. Over the years it was in operation, horrid reports of abuse, neglect and unrest were reported. It's no wonder it stands as one of the most haunted sites in America today.
