Kansas Army Ammunition Plant

You are here Home  > Military >  Kansas Army Ammunition Plant

Rumor has it that the Kansas Army Ammunition Plant is haunted by a victim of an explosion in the late 1980s. When the plant was reopened for the Persian Gulf War in the 1990s, workers suffered from nightmares and visions and heard the phantom sound of bicycle bells once used as transportation by supervisors throughout the plant.

  1. Not me specifically, but my mom told me of a story that happened to my grandfather that worked there. She told me he was a part of that exact explosion, and helped out there, although he quit a few months later. She told me he actually heard the same bycicle bells described here. I would get my grandfather to tell me the story himself, but sadly he passed away from a tumor.
