The Haunted School is a local legend that in 1836, a small community, drawn by the local coal mines, began to grow in the area now known as Chittyville. Here they worked hard, raised their families, and died. The dead were buried in a cemetery somewhere along Chittyville Road .As years went by, most of the early settlers died or moved on and the cemetery became overgrown and unused. In October 1912, officials claimed the land to build a new school needed for the thriving community. The school opened in August of 1913. Almost immediately, the children and teachers complained of seeing ghostly figures in the hallways and strange noises coming from the boiler room. It wasn't until October, however, that the real horror began. On one cold October day, Mr. Haney, the school custodian, thought he heard the sound of someone crying. He went into the boiler room to investigate and never returned and each October a student or teacher would vanish without explanation from the school. The school closed in 1989 and sat empty for many, many years...until an unwitting couple purchased the school in December of 2004.

Who will be the next to disappear...will it be you?
