Whoever haunts this 1894 courthouse is not known, although the list of possible candidates include a member of Clyde Barrow’s gang who was sentenced here, or the man who was shot dead in a five-day gunfight outside the courthouse at the turn of the century. In the latter case, the bullet holes can still be seen on the fa├žade of the historic building. Paranormal activity here is confined to voices emanating from empty rooms, doors slamming shut of their own accord and the sound of the elevator moving from floor to floor, despite the fact it hasn’t been used in decades.
