The Hannah House, Indianapolis,
Case File 06-0605
Classification: Historic, Commercial
Built in 1858 by Alexander Hannah, the Hannah House on Indianapolis' south
side was once a stop on the Underground Railroad. Slaves fleeing toward Canada would stay in the basement until
it was safe for them to continue on their journey. One night a lantern was accidentally knocked over in the basement;
fire and smoke quickly overtaking and killing several of the runaways. It is rumored (but never substantiated)
that in order to keep the safe-house a secret, the victims were buried in the basement...and remain there to this day.
Further, it is said that Alexander Hannah and several of his family continue to haunt the house.
iGHOST visited the Hannah House in June of 2006. It is in the basement that at least 2 members
of iGHOST were "touched" by invisible hands.
Below are successive images of a picture taken
by iGHOST at The Hannah House in June of 2006. Notice the strange
form in the shot. Successive pictures clear the image up. At
first glance it appears to take the form of a woman wearing a 19th century bussel-type dress, facing away from the person in the white shirt, floating a few feet off the ground. Also, notice how the railings of the porch are visible through the form, especially
in the last image that has been brightened up. This is a strange
picture, open for
interpretation, and is possibly a case of pareidolia, as it appears to show a woman in 19th century garb. This picture was taken with a disposable film camera, and, unfortunately,
is fairly blurry.
