Christ Episcopal Church

You are here Home  > Miscellaneous >  Christ Episcopal Church

Built in 1888, the Christ Episcopal Church is said to be haunted by apparitions and shadows that appear around the altar and elsewhere. One of the ghosts is an older female parishioner who appears in her Sunday clothes, sitting in a pew halfway back. Another is a happy man who has appeared as an audibly laughing face floating in the air, and still another ghost is said to take the form of a vanishing bat who causes the candles to go out. A ghost that has been identified is that of former church Rev. Alexander Cummings, who has been seen as an apparition on the bell tower steps and around the altar.
