Okay, this story I really believe in.
My grandmother lived in Otter Tail, which is only a 20 minute drive from Fergus Falls and she used to tell me everything about this story. Here's what I learned about Fergus Falls; one, there was a movie called Geist that was made there (I don't know if any well-known actors are in it, so don't ask me if it's good or bad), and two, there was a mental institution.
Apparently, like 3,400 people died there in that institution and paranormal researchers went out to try and see what they could record and witness. Here's what they found.
They witnessed doors slamming and knocking - even pounding - on doors. One of the paranormal investigators claimed he saw a triangular figure moving towards him inside the building. They even got a recording of floorboards moving and creaking as footsteps were heard somewhere on the 3rd floor overlooking the facility grounds.
Spooky. Now that I look back on it, I don't know if I would have gone in there just to say I went or something. Just imagining myself being left in a dark room with mysterious haunting footsteps stomping just around the corner. It gives me goosebumps.
