Haunted Locations and Scary Legends Around Sioux Falls
is steeped in scary traditions. Trick-or-Treating, frightening costumes, local actors in "haunted" houses, and the pitch-black darkness of area corn mazes.
However, if we set out to find the real
haunted areas what would we find? Over the last 30 years that I have lived in Sioux Falls
, a few locations still gain attention as being haunted.
And yes, a handful of thrill-seeking people will show up on our favorite eerie night for what could be a viral video moment or experience a misty phantom first-hand.
Let's take a little tour of the more famous hauntings around Sioux Falls. Turn on the lights and cue the Cowardly Lion: "I do believe in spooks, I do believe in spooks..."
Although Deadwood still boasts the most haunted town in South Dakota, it turns out we have a few good scares of our own. These legends have been around for years and I guess every town has them. Stories and lore created by a fire while camping are to be handed down from generation to generation.
We would love to hear your story if you've experienced a paranormal moment. Happy hauntings!
