Things That Go Bump In The Night
Make sure to get all the way to the bottom folks. There is a spooky giveaway contest!
Just ask the coach man, I like to scare myself silly with shows like Ghost Hunters and if you're old school, Unsolved Mysteries. Not really the horror movie kind of stuff, but the "real" story kind of stuff. I watch with a blanket pulled up to my nose so I can quickly bring it up over my eyes if need be. I'm completely intrigued by the paranormal, so it's only natural that I'm ultra intrigued by paranormal in Fortville!
Just down the street from me is the Ivy House Bed and Breakfast. It's rumored that Al Capone used to visit long ago and illegally gamble within it's walls. HGTV's If Walls Could Talk featured the B and B and noted that gambling items were found both behind a furnace and inside garage walls. Haunted Places also reports an experience with the piano within the B and B.

If you read my Indiana State Museum: American Spirits exhibit recap, you know I love the era that includes flappers, bootleggers and gangsters! To think...Al Capone thought Fortville was cool enough to hangout here often! Just maybe in a speakeasy in the basement of the now Indulge! I love it! We'll just overlook the whole criminal thing for a minute. I just love that just maybe we're a slice of that period's history!
Moving on...my newest creepy Fortville destination providing for haunted intrigue - Ten West Center for the Arts! There's been quite a few interesting incidents over the years. You can read about them here and watch a spirit interaction as well. Love the flashlight thing! Decide for yourself, haunted or not. My favorite part of Ten West is the passage from the church to the parsonage. I love hidden doors and tunnels. When those are present there is always a back story or two to go with!
