New Attraction in Globe, Arizona designed to Haunt Visitors

All the pounding and sawing inside the historic jail in Globe over the month of August has raised questions about the possibility of sinister happenings in these parts. Tales of crazed zombies desperately scratching at windows and the sounds of unearthly moans emanating from the ghostly throats of long-gone prisoners have caused concern among the local folks, and they are demanding answers. Since Sept. 28, citizens have taken to lining up in front of the historic jail house on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays at sun-down so they can see the goings-on for themselves. This is expected to continue through the weekends in the month of October and end with a special showing for kids on Halloween night. Trouble is, the more people that are allowed in, the more screams and maniacal laughter are heard by those on the outside. Read More »
