A form of the vanishing hitchhiker story exists here involving an inebriated woman who demands people pull over at Evergreen Cemetery only for people to discover her grave. Another possible ghost here is Benjamin E. Smith who went on a suicidal drinking binge before shooting himself nearby.

  1. I was sitting on a barstool at King Eddy saloon facing the band when a kind of breathy male voice said “hey” directly in my left ear. I looked around but the bartender was on the other side of the bar, no one behind me, and there were no other barstools or people to my left.

  2. Does anyone know anything else about the haunting in the King Eddy Saloon Bar? I would like to know more information. Please let me know. Thanks.
