Old Calhoun County Courthouse

You are here Home  > Historical Buildings >  Old Calhoun County Courthouse

This 1904 Romanesque courthouse building formerly served as the county jail, but is now mainly used as a haunted house attraction by the local police department. A former sheriff reported that staff would continuously here moans and screams emanating from a series of cells during the night shift, but upon investigation, nothing was ever found.

  1. N/A I'm not saying  |  

    In 2000 I had to take a polygraph because a woman’s purse had been stolen at work (turned out she misplaced it). I was sitting, waiting for them to come give me the polygraph up stairs. I was led up their by an officer and told someone would be up in a minute. So there I sat looking out of a window (on the east side I believe). The floors are old and wooden and it was very quiet and empty. I heard someone walking up behind me so I turned around. There wasn’t anyone around. I always thought that maybe someone was down stairs walking heavy or something. I tried to rationalize what I heard until I saw this. I haven’t thought about it since. But at least it makes sense now.
