Kansas Haunted Legend - The Woman in the River
On one of the steepest and most dangerous hills in a small Kansas town, there is a well-known street known as Atchison Street. Once upon a time, the street was a place where the river ferry docked at the end of its journey. This street is well-known because at the top of the hill are two of the town’s first and fanciest hotels. Many visitors have been to this hill and visited the area. These visitors are the reason that we still have the legend of the woman in the river.
There once was a woman who was traveling through the area on her stagecoach. The stagecoach went down the well-known steep and dangerous hill when suddenly the horses pulling the stagecoach became spooked and started running down the hill. As the speed continued to increase, the woman knew she was in trouble.
The horses were able to wiggle their way free out of the hitches, but unfortunately the buggy continued to fly down the hill with increasing speed. As the buggy reached the end of the hill it flew into the middy Missouri River and sank. Since the buggy flipped, the woman was unable to get out in time. People assumed that she died, but there was never proof as her body was never found.
Since that night, men who walk along the Missouri River near the same hill where the accident occurred hear the screams of a woman. They feel a strong force that seems to call them into the river and a voice that calls for help. Many believe that this force is the woman’s ghost. It is believed that she desperately seeks a companion to share eternity with under the water.
A handful of men have died over the years because they became mesmerized by the voice and the force of the woman. They simply walked straight in to the river as if they had no control over their actions. The bodies of these men are always found and their ghosts are nowhere in sight – meaning the woman will always and forever be on the lookout for a companion.
