Some Personal accounts of people living in Earlsboro taken from Ghosts Of America.

I live in Earlsboro and YES it is very creepy. The house i live in sits on a burned down hotel and i often find marbles and other burned toys of kids that died in the hotel. It is very eerie and there is a field outside my house and its scary as well. – A fellow resident Of Earlsboro OK.

An old railroad worker is said to be seen lated at night on a rail car holding a lattern. Supposedly you can hear it creek by, and hear him humming a tune.

There’s not one thing out of the ordinary concerning Earlsboro, Oklahoma while the sun shines, but when the sun has gone below the horizon you might observe some scary things. The ghosts of this settlement don’t leave anyone unfrightened. People who have never stayed for a few days in this settlement will laugh and say it’s a pack of lies, but Earlsboro is jam-packed with undeparted souls just waiting to scare you.

The ghost of a security guard with a bullet hole in his forehead was noticed in the middle of Brier Creek screaming. The witness ran away right after she distinguished the spirit. Based on what the people who live here argue, this ghost is probably the undeceased ghost of a local resident who used to have a home here in Earlsboro.

The ghost of a guy having on an army outfit was seen at Audrey Crown Dam in the early morning hours trying to verbalize something. When the onlooker emerged the ghost ran off.

This is the town my father was born in. He recounted a story from when he was 5, 1929, about seeing a car going down the street with one guy hanging on the side, standing on the running board, while another guy was leaning out the front window stabbing the guy on the running board. Sounds like fun times.

My dad and his brothers and sisters grew up in Earlsboro. I lived there when I was in high school and for over 10 years as an adult and it was mostly uneventful. You can go 4-wheeling and exploring on the back roads and you never know what you might find. I have a lot of good memories. Some of my family still live there so I'm there quite a bit. If it's haunted, I think that's kind of cool.

Pretty Boy Floyds partner in crime…George Birdwell…his mom lived there and was laid out at the funeral home. The law had surrounded it in hopes of catching him. They were met by a group of outlaws that supposedly held them back so he could pay his last respects…and then he escaped out the back and went on the rob a bank like the next day or two. I'm interested in knowing where that old funeral home used to sit, like the location and if it's being used as something else today. Any info?

This is my mema and granddads store.. I am curious to know how and when these photographs were taken? I can tell that they were taken a long time ago. And I also know that I want prints! They bring back the best memories of my life! As far as Earlsboro being haunted.. Gonna have to call a bluff on that one! Lived here my entire life; I used ride my bike and walk these streets in the dark by myself ALL the time and never had an eery or uneasy feeling. Please, let me know who has these prints?!?… Read more »

I have a great old panoramic photo of the original oil fields of Earlsboro, my grandad used to be a pumper for many years and my family is all from around that area. I'd love to visit sometime and see if I could find my great grandpa's general store…

So where in the town is the Audrey Crown Dam and the hotel that burned down? I've certainly never heard of either one. But I second the motions that the only departed souls in this town are the ones still living there. And I too remember walking down to the old store to get packets of BB's to go hunting in the abandoned oil fields and walking the railroad tracks pulling up the stakes or throwing rocks at the glass fixtures on the electrical lines.

I grew up in Earlsboro, in an old two story house on the hill a few blocks north of Main Street. We used to play outside at all times of the day and night, I don't remember ever seeing anything that gave me the creeps. This included playing in the abandoned oil fields around town and the cemeteries north of town.
Question: Has anyone heard anything about a woman who hung her child, then herself in Earlsboro? Heard some rumors about my parents house, just doing some research.

Hello Vicky!
Haven't been to this site in a while. I can appreciate the picitures that have been taken, because we no longer have our little white fillin' station and the feed store adjacent to the post office because it burned down earlier this year. As for an Aunt Liz, I faintly remember an Aunt Lizzie Harris growing up, maybe the same person. Please visit Shanky's Mini Mart north of main street for possible information.
Farewell

I grew up in Earlsboro and have never heard of any ghost stories. The scariest thing I have ever experienced in Earlsboro, is being on the back of a horse running uncontrollably across a pasture. As for our old buildings we welcome any and all funds that would allow us to bring our structures back to life.:)

Having been thru the town many times, it is certainly not a ghost town in the strictest sense. The video clip would be more enjoyable if edited down to half its present length.

I am not a ghost hunter by trade, nor am I a psychic, but I do get feelings when in certain places that are unexplainable. Earlsboro didn't make me feel uncomfortable at all. In fact, while we were in the main street area, a group of ladies walking their dogs strolled by and said hello. The creepiest place I have been is a house on the dirt road that leads into Fallis, which hasn't made it's way to the site yet. I'm holding it out until October….*evil laugh*>:-)
