What’s Worse than School? A Haunted One
Winslow Elementary may have seemed like a normal school on the outside, but many strange sightings over the years have made many people in the Racine, WI area to question how “normal” this haunted place could actually be. The school was built on part of the old city cemetery, after most of the bodies were exhumed and moved to what became known as Mound Cemetery, named for the Native American burial mounds. Disturbing the site had been a huge mistake, since many children attending Winslow Elementary over the years claimed to have heard phantom footsteps and voices, seen unexplained shadows, and glimpsed apparitions inside the classrooms and windows. Winslow School eventually had to close down in 2006 due to budget constraints—but the building still remains, far from abandoned and waiting to haunt its next inhabitants.
