There are some things that will never cease to be a mystery. That is definitely the case for one tiny Missouri town that was prominent enough to have a post office back in the day, but now has no remnant remaining that it ever exited. It simply is extinct.
The internet just declared that a certain mansion is "the grandest in Missouri". Well, that may be true, but it also might be the most haunted as many claim they have seen a "lady in white" presiding over the estate.
When two massive earthquakes rocked the New Madrid, Missouri area in late 1811 and early 1812, most of the damage is only recorded in history books. But, there is still a remnant of those historic quakes in the form of sand volcanoes that can still be found if you scour Google Earth.
If you find a time machine, you'd have to venture way back to the time when Hannibal was 3 times larger than Hannibal, Missouri, but it's true. There's a new memento from a scrapbook that's just been found that recounts that era.
If you've ever attempted ghost hunting, you know it can be a terrifying experience. Normally, there are no physical risks though. The exception was a recent paranormal investigation in Cape Girardeau, Missouri where an investigator got seriously scratched by...something (or someone).
Every home I've ever heard of that claimed it was haunted had a moment in the past that could be pointed to as a possible reason. But, what about the house in Illinois that was just named the 'creepiest place' that experts claim was haunted before it was built?
