Haunted Minnesota Northeast Region
St. Louis County
Aurora High School  – There was a very horrible fire at the school in 1977. In this fire many lives were taken because at the time there was a bunch of kids just going around pulling the alarms. There have been sightings of 2 boys walking on the third floor yelling and there’s been reported sightings of a girl on the second floor crying for someone to help her.
Charlie’s Club  – There is a night club in the western part of Duluth called Spirit Valley (go figure!). The building was built in the late 1800’s and was previously 4 stories tall, now a single story due to a fire. Even though no one was hurt or killed in the blaze, the bar has quite a lot of paranormal activity. It was quite a colorful place back in the day, being a reported “house of commercial affection”, gin mill, speak easy, etc. There are a couple of ongoing events that are quite commonplace. Near the west doors are a couple of pool tables. Just off the far right corner there is a corner drink table where many people have had been either shoved, poked, brushed against or had their stick bumped to only discover that there is no-one there. The other occurrence is the old woman who shows herself only to men, mostly men who work there. Many staff members have heard the bathroom doors open and close, slam shut and swing open violently and the back security door open and slam shut with no-one being there. Attesting to this is it mostly happens after closing time when only the staff are there cleaning up with perimeter alarms set so if anyone was in these areas it would trip the alarms.
Duluth International Airport  – The ghost of a woman murdered on a nearby road haunts the airport to which her murderer fled after stabbing her to death. The ghost has been seen by security staff and causes doors to open and close sounding alarms with no one in the secured areas.
Glensheen Mansion/Congdon Mansion  – Haunted by a maid who was murdered there and also by the woman who was murdered there too by her own children. Elisabeth Congdon and her nurse haunt the house they were murdered in.
Heritage Park House  – In the house one family that lived there a dad had killed his son by telling him that if Jesus could walk on water so could he. The boy then drowned under the bridge near the house. The father continued to beat his children until he later died. To this day people have reported sightings of the boy who was drowned by the bridge, and the house remains abandoned.
Abandoned Hardware Store that was originally a furniture store where the owner also did mortuary work. MNPI conducted an investigation at this location, see our summary report.
Hibbing High School Auditorium  – An apparition of an older male sitting in seat J47 has been photographed many times. It is thought to be the ghost of the stage manager who died of a heart attack while working there in 1942. There have always been odd occurrences in the auditorium, but the rumor wasn’t believed until the apparition was captured in the photograph after a play practice in 2000.
Haunted Tree  – Somewhere off Highway 7 there is a tree where a man had hung his two daughters and then hung himself. It has been reported that late at night the branches will be pushed down and shoot up and shake like something has fallen off of them.
