Many witnesses have reported seeing the ghost of a young man who appears and quickly disappears in the section of the school that houses the band and choir rooms. A musically inclined ghost, maybe?

  1. I went there for three years, and when they were introducing Minor High School to the 8th Graders last year(my last year) in the front gym, I saw what I thought was a student walking down the bleachers, I turned away for a second, looked back, and the “student” who was halfway down the bleachers when I looked was gone. No sign of a student having moved or anything. I think it’s the boy that they have a plaque for in the front office.

  2. IM IN SIXTH GRADE AND WHEN YOU LOOK IN THE BACK OF THE BAND ROOM ITS SPOOKY IN THAT CLOSET AND IN THE CHIOR ROOM I WAS SITTING DOWN AND I EARD THE CHAIR SLAM BACK I TURNED AROUND AND IT WAS GONE AND IN THE GIRLS LOCKER ROOM I FEEL LIKE PEOPLE WATCH ME AND THE DOOR SHUTS IT SELF HE WROTE HELLO ON THE WALL AND CUT THE TV ON

    • That is the most ridiculous thing. I lived in Adamsville all my life. My class of 1972 was the first class to walk those school halls it was new at the time and to be honest I know of no ghost ever present in that school. My sisters also went to Bottenfield Almost 10 years apart no ghost then or now ever revealed itself. And believe me we would have enjoyed such a bizarre attraction to disrupt those days.

  3. I went to that school back in 2002-2004 and they always had problems with the swampy area behind the main building. My fellow classmates and teachers would tel us that back in the mid 70s, a few students went back there to fight and one fell in the swamp and drowned. he begged for help but the other students ran. Even the coach at the time said he was part of the group. I don’t know if it was just a foul game they played or what. But while i was in band late in the evening, all the lights would be out and I swear i could see someone in the hall ways soaking wet, beaten. Even my brother saw it
