This historic former jailhouse is now the county office, but has a haunting dating back to the turn of the nineteenth century. Prisoners were reportedly frightened by a apparition robed in white, who repeatedly floated past their cells without making a sound before vanishing. This manifestation has made various appearances since then for well over a century.

  1. I have been a resident of West Union for 33 years now and have walked its streets for many years before driving. I was walking by this place one night before it became precinct offices which it’s now FRS Transportation, anyways I always got this erie feeling and one night around 1:30am I looked up at it and I noticed a white glare in the window and as I kept looking I noticed it looked like a person looking and watching me walk around the corner, every hair on my neck stood up and I was getting the hell out of there.

  2. My father was here for counseling and felt a cold chill and it felt like something grabbed him by the throat, and was squeezing tightly, and every time he’s been there he’s felt someone or something of the spirit world had been watching him.
