An audio documentary format that tries to shed some light on the infamous Sallie House.
This is a premium episode that we released in April of 2016. Decided to release it to the public as a Christmas present to our listeners!
From the Sallie House website:
History of the Sallie House
Originally built at the turn of the century, this house became the residence of an Atchison physician. The front served as office space and examination rooms, while the doctor and his family lived upstairs. One day, a frantic mother arrived carrying her 6-year-old daughter, Sallie. The child had collapsed from severe abdominal pain. The doctor diagnosed appendicitis and knew there was no time to delay surgery. Believing the appendix would soon burst, the doctor began cutting Sallie before the anesthesia took full effect. Sallie’s screams suddenly stopped and she grew pale and limp. She died on the operating table – her last memories of a man whom she believed was torturing her.
Hauntings at the Sallie House
Though the house had long been known to be haunted, Sallie’s haunting grew ominous in 1993, when the house was rented to a young couple. Their dog seemed to growl at nothing, especially near the upstairs nursery. Things began to take a violent turn, however. Fires broke out in the house and a series of sinister attacks on the husband began. The operating area would become cold. Objects would visibly move when the young man drew near. He could feel scratches upon his chest or abdomen. But never did the ghost attack the wife or baby.
Events that have been witnessed by visitors to the Sallie House include:
- video and investigative equipment that stop working
- batteries that are full immediately and completely draining
- experience moving objects
- unexplained scratches or bruising on their bodies during/after visits
- physical touches
- mysterious coldness
- Trained guide dogs refuse to enter the nursery
