Beyond Lincoln: A History of Nebraska Hauntings is a book about the ghosts of Lincoln and Nebraska.
I am asking for submissions of ghost stories, tales, folklore, supernatural experiences, and most importantly the history connected to these stories. I am in search of documents, newspaper articles, names, dates, and details linked to ghost stories and locations with a ghostly past in Lincoln and Nebraska.
I am specifically looking for ghost stories and history connected to the following:
Lake Street Lake
20th and Washington
Bloody Mary’s House
Temple Theater – UNL Campus
Oldfather Hall – UNL Campus
The Nebraska State Penitentiary
Nebraska State Capitol Building
C.C. White Building
Outside of Lincoln:
Seven Sisters Road - Nebraska City
Argo Hotel - Crofton
Ball Cemetery - Springfield
Norfolk Asylum - Norfolk
White House Apartments - Omaha
Hummel Park - Omaha
Barnard Park - Fremont
Spring Ranche Bridge - Spring Ranche
Although I am looking for specific information connected to certain stories, I would still love to hear any information you may have that you believe would contribute to my research. I am also looking for new stories to consider for later editions.
Beyond Lincoln: A History of Nebraska Hauntings began as a project for Independent Study at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. I am currently collecting research and stories about the ghosts that haunt Lincoln and Nebraska. Through fact-based information, I plan to provide a backstory for the tales we have been retelling for generations to provide a larger and more detailed picture of the origins of the ghost stories we recount.
If you would like to share your ghost story or any information that you believe would assist in completing my book, please send all submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org
