Tuscaloosa, AL - Who is the crazy woman with a gentle touch, who tucks the children in at night and sings songs in the darkness? Who is the drunken idiot who falls down the stairs and kills himself?

Downstairs a doctor's office waits for patients, a room is filled with wartime memorabilia, and a schoolroom waits for students. But the people who roam the halls are not the people for whom the rooms are intended. They've been dead for more than 150 years. But if that's so, then who moves the toys? Whose cries are heard from the doctor's office? Why is there such a feeling of unease? Because, dead or not, many of them never actually left.

There's not a horror fan out there who's not intrigued by the prospect of real cases of things that go bump in the night. Sometimes said things can come in some really unexpected places.
