Home to ancient burial grounds, unsolved murders, economic depression and a water crisis, Flint emits an unholy energy rife  with ghostly encounters.

Colonel Thomas Stockton’s ever-vigilant ghost keeps a  watchful eye over his family home at Spring Grove, where guests occasionally hear the thump of his heavy boots. Restless spirits  long separated from their graves lurk among the ancient stones at Avondale Cemetery. Carriage maker W.A. Paterson’s spirit continuously wanders the halls of the Dryden Building, and something sinister and unnamed resides in a Knob Hill mansion waiting to prey on impressionable young men.

Join authors Roxanne Rhoads and Joe Schipani on a chilling tour of Flint’s most haunted locations.

Could the very name of the city have something to do with all the hauntings? In Native American lore, Flint was a trickster God and sometimes portrayed as a villain.

Historical homes, museums, and beautiful theaters are among Flint’s most haunted locations.

There is a little-known tale of a Native American curse that could be causing Flint’s unfortunate events. The Sauks were massacred on the land along the banks of the Flint River. Legend tells of a curse they placed.
