The Flapper Ghost is a brunette beauty with a bob and 1920s clothing. She has been seen since the 1930s. Her identity remains a mystery, but throughout history she has been seen in the evenings at dance halls and asked for a ride home. She would direct them to Waldheim Cemetery, saying she lived in the caretaker’s cottage or in an apartment nearby, but those who followed her found her to disappear among the tombstones. In 1973 she was seen in broad daylight by a family visiting the cemetery, who were surprised when she vanished into a mausoleum. The Flapper Ghost’s identity is not known, but she was most active in the 1930s and the 1970s.
