This abandoned Oklahoma Schoolhouse has been the location of numerous rumored hauntings, supernatural occurrences, and paranormal investigations throughout the years. There are ghost stories galore and the frightening legend of this place continues to grow. It's allegedly one of the most haunted places in the state.


The historic Bird Creek School in Pawhuska, OK. was originally built back in the late 1930s. At the time it was considered one of the most modern and advanced schools of its kind in the entire state. From the instruction that students received there to the actual building and classrooms themselves, it was way ahead of its time.

Bird Creek Schoolhouse served the small rural towns around it. Not much is known about the school or its students. The school closed sometime in the 1960s and was used as a community center for a while and was later abandoned. If you visit the school go inside and write your name on the chalkboard then walk out and wait a while, when you go back inside your name will be mysteriously erased from the board.

Some say that invisible hands, ghosts from prior students erase names and other messages that have been written on the board. Those who have gone to the school and tried it say the stories are true and their names were erased. There have also been paranormal investigators who have captured EVP (Electronic Voice Phenomenon) evidence and recorded voices and other unexplained noises while visiting the school.

There have also been accounts of ghost hunters seeing actual ghosts, shadow figures, and other apparitions both inside and around the school property. It's been abandoned for well over 50 years now but locals and investigators say it's definitely not empty something still remains. It certainly has that unwelcoming, creepy vibe as most abandoned places do, but there's more to it than that. Sure most of the stories being told are urban legends and superstition. Even so, it sounds like there may be some truth to this ghost story.
