The Story of Story
The Town of Story, Indiana was founded in 1851 with a land grant to Dr.
George Story by President Fillmore. As the town grew it reached
it’s heyday in the years 1880-1929 and had two general stores, a
church, schoolhouse and post office. In 1929 the Great Depression hit
and the town never recovered. Much of the land surrounding Story was
left behind and was eventually turned into Brown County State Park. The
town limped through the better part of the 20th century without being
modernized or updated with new
structures. It essentially looks the same today as it did 100 years
ago. The one surviving general store was eventually bought and
renovated into what it is today, The Story Inn.
Paranormal Research was lucky enough to be allowed to spend the night
at the Inn and do an investigation. The Inn has 4 rooms upstairs in the
old General store and a few outbuildings that have been turned into
cottages. Each room upstairs has a ledger kept in the room for guest to
record their stay at Story. All ledgers, once full, are put away for
safekeeping. For years there have been stories recorded in these
ledgers of ghost that haunt the Inn, particularly the ghost of
“The Blue Lady”. This has been a local legend for years and
has been published in local papers and one national magazine.
our interview with the owner and employees of The Story Inn we were
shown and allowed to read some of the ledgers stored away from years
past. Some guest did not encounter anything while others were sure they
had encountered something supernatural. What we found amazing is that
the guest were from all parts of the country and had no ties to each
other but still had these strange things happen to them. Hoosier
Paranormal also spoke with three current employees to see if they had
any stories. One said she has had nothing happen to her but one of the
chefs said that she was cooking in the kitchen one morning when
suddenly the door flew wide open and slammed against the wall. Another
employee said that he was in the kitchen area when a plate of spaghetti
flew off the counter striking him in the hand. He had the scar to prove
it and showed us. We also learned in our interview that the most active
room in the Inn was not the Blue Lady Room
but the Morrison/Kelly room.

The owner himself told us that he had
captured high EMF readings in the bathroom area. Ledgers from the
Morrison/Kelly room tell of strange noises through out the night. Also
learned in our interview was the fact that Doc Story’s house is also
active along with the barn out back and the Old Mill building next
door. The owner’s wife confirmed that lots of strange things occur in
the house (they live in it) and we hope to return in the future and
conduct an investigation of that house and some of the cottages. We
were shown the headstone of a young boy who died in the mid 1800’s. The
grave marker was found in the barn and was being used as a counter
weight for bales of hay. His grave has yet to be found.
