The old one-room schoolhouse for Native American children was built in the early 1900s. Legend has it that if you write your name on the blackboard and leave, when you come back later, the board will have been wiped clean by unseen hands.

    1. We investigated the Bird Creek School in July of 2015. Inside my cousin had started an EVP before my brother and I were ready. Upon reviewing the EVP you can hear us three whispering and discussing where we should sit and look while we conduct the EVP. Then the distinct sound of wood scraping on wood (I believe a wooden chair scraping the wooden floor) is clearly made twice. Upon the 2nd wooden scrape a distinct female voice (all of us are male) louder than our whispers says, “I’m sitting here.” During the 2nd EVP recording I was asking questions again and my cousin interrupts me with,”Did you see that!” There was plenty of moonlight shining through various holes in the roof and he claimed to have seen a shadow person cross in front of some of the moonlight patches. Upon reviewing this EVP there is the distinct sound of 4-5 footsteps followed by my cousin exclaiming, “Did you see that!” I believe this evidence suggests that the Bird Creek School is in fact haunted. Two of our four EVP attempts had some form of interaction whether it be intelligent like the first one or residual like the second.

      • In May of 2017 I returned to BCS with my girlfriend to conduct another investigation. During an EVP session while I was asking questions she whispers to me, “Can I turn on the light?” Because she thought she saw something. I ignore her and ask, “What is your name?” Before I finish my sentence a distinct 3rd voice of an older woman says, “Turn off the light.” Which is followed by a brief pause and then says, “Bertha.” We believe that we captured an intelligent response to both of our questions.

    2. Tonight a friend and I traveled from Skiatook up to Pawhuska just looking for some adventure. We arrived at Bird Creek School around 6:30 PM. we felt at peace, very comfortable, and we definitely did not feel a presence among us. We took pictures and very few videos. I actually only took one 2 minute 14 second long video. Nothing is seen or heard through the whole video until about 1 minute in. At the point we were on the stage. We had been complaining the whole video about how cold we were and how it felt so much colder in the school than outside. After complaining non stop. A friendly male voice reply’s “alright I’ll go check”. As if he were going to check out a thermostat to see why it was so cold in there. We did not hear the response with our own ears. But if you would like to hear this yourself. You can follow my Instagram page @mollykatehenderson we are still in complete shock. All I know is there was a friendly male spirit there that didn’t want us cold. We were there 25-30 minutes without knowing we caught this. We caught a few pictures of orbs as well and that’s it. Definitely worth the visit. I’ve never had such clear evidence in my life.
