Built in 1918, the Mantorville Opera House building has been a club, a speakeasy, a silent movie house, a skating rink, a city hall and a civic center. It is believed to be haunted by several spirits, including former actors and entertainers and a woman who the staff nicknamed Ellen. Witnesses also have felt cold spots, seen lights turn on and off, heard the thump of cowboy boots in the second-floor hallway, and described an uneasy feeling of being watched in the basement, among other eerie occurrences.

  1. I lived in Mantorville and my Grandmother made costumes for the plays. One Sunday we went so that she could make adjustments and I used the downstairs performers restroom, when I looked in the mirror there was someone looking back and it was not an 8 year old girl (me). I booked it to my Grandma, so scared I wanted to leave.
