In 1858, two monks arrived in Atchison, Kansas and set up a boarding school for boys on a rise overlooking the Missouri River.  They started off hosting just a half a dozen students.  Heavy wagon traffic, with settlers heading west, kept the town very busy and some chose to settle in Atchison.  Within a year or two, the boarding school grew into St. Benedict’s College.  In the 1970s, the school combined with the Mount St. Scholastica College for women, resulting in Benedictine College.   Many students have come and gone through Benedictine, but the monks who originally founded the school, never left!  And, they have a few ghostly friends that hang out with them.

Legend has it that around 1920 on a stretch of track near Charles City, Iowa, a train loaded with passengers was steaming along and there was an accident.  Some of the train cars still being made of wood in those days, as the use of the safer steel cars was just beginning to grow, caught fire and quickly spread through the train.  Many of the passengers became trapped, could not escape the blaze and perished.  A large number of the deaths were centered around a passenger car loaded with orphan children.  Some say they still linger in the woods near Charles City today.

Some rail cars during the early 20th century were still being made of wood which spelled disaster for many victims of railway fires such as the one near Charles City, Iowa in 1920
