UM alum Justin Averette has written an interesting piece about a group that's been active here on campus looking for evidence of the haunts of King House.
Writes Averette, "The Gulf States Paranormal Society is made up of mostly Shelby and Jefferson County residents. They get together about twice a month and investigate 'haunted' places like King House."
I spoke to a member of this group earlier in the week, who claimed that they heard footsteps and voices on the second floor of the historic structure when they were here most recently.
Averette's story was published in the Shelby County Reporter on October 31, 2007.
