Darling Lutheran Church

You are here Home  > Miscellaneous >  Darling Lutheran Church

Darling Lutheran, established in 1893, is no longer in operation except for its cemetery; both the church and graveyard are well kept. A nearby murder from the early 1900s may be the cause of the church’s haunting. Witnesses have heard female screams and seen a woman’s apparition walking in the graveyard.

    1. Visited Darling a Sunday in August of 2012. It is a well kept church and cemetery. I went there around 5pm, so well before dark. There were random people visiting graves and that was about it. I did not get any creepy vibes or anything such as that. It was just very quiet and still. I think the church door was open, but I didn’t have permission, so I didn’t go in. I would imagine it would be creepy at night, being out out in the country, with a lack of light.

    2. I just went there tonight with some fellow ghost hunters and we asked Annie to knock back on the floor after we banged on the floor and it worked several times and it was obviously not an echo, we lit a candle and all sat on one side of the church and shadows appeared running through the church, twice things were thrown in the church with none of us moving, it also after midnight got so cold we literally could see our breath in the flashlights yet it was 50 degrees out so this couldn’t be possible, also noteable cabinet doors are open every time you enter the church and we close them every time before leaving, and we threw a key ring in the ceiling last time we were in the church and we found them on the floor at our arrival this time, strange blue lights also appear, this place definitely is inhabited by spirits

    3. I have lived in little falls before. there was some creepy thing there.This man would start to stare at me when i came home from school. i had to to start going the back way. my cousin said she saw a ghost that looked just like me too.

    4. I have been here multiple times, every time weird things have happened. Since it is next to a busy highway, you’d expect to still hear and see the cars. But once there, there is none. The yard light goes from clear to a deep red color and shuts off when going into the church and doesn’t turn on fully until leaving. Also, every time going we end up with a car problem. There’s always a strange cool feeling like there’s someone else with youbor watching you.
