"Mikey" Haunts a School Auditorium

North High School, located in Columbus, Indiana, is apparently the lair of a rather mischievous ghost.

Long before the High School was built, back in the horse and buggy days, a young lad named Mikey was walking along a dirt road on the then northern outskirts of the town. A man driving a horse drawn wagon or buggy did not see Mikey and ran him down, killing the boy.

As it sometimes happens, the Judson S. Erne Auditorium at North High School was constructed on the exact spot where the old dirt road used to run, and where hapless Mikey lost his life. Locals have for years told of many episodes in the auditorium that are attributed to the ghost of Mikey.

Mikey has been known to turn lights on and off. He has been seen briefly at times in the catwalks and the balcony. Some claim to have seen him out of the corner of their eye running across the stage. It would seem that Mikey enjoys staying around, or at least making an appearance occasionally. The school officials tend to discount these sightings, which is frankly to be expected. However, many in the Columbus area are convinced that the ghost of Mikey truly haunts the Erne Auditorium.
