About Central High School

Located at 124 N. 20th St. in Omaha, NE.

The History:

This school was started in 1859.

The Haunting:

Cold spots have been noted while walking on the main floor between the deans office when school is not in session. Disembodied voices that are supposed to say something different depending upon the number of people in your group (Either, "I know you're here"...or "I know you're ALL here...."). Reports of a "white blur" that flies past people and heads to the deans office. A shadowy figure is said to, "wave at you" through the window. It is said that this is possibly, "a former dean or janitor" and that the ghost "sounds like a janitor because you might hear broom sweeps in the hallway". Speculation that the "ghost" is a dean comes from the waving-shadow-person-through-the-window paradigm.

Strange sounds of wheels moving on wooden floors as well as creaking have also been reported.


Here is another example of a report involving a school haunting. Indeed, school hauntings are common and they typically cite the involvement of a janitor as an important character in the paranormal activity.

Central High School is one of those places that leaves an inprint on your soul, just as I'm sure souls also leave their imprint walking down the Central halls. You can just feel it!

Iv interviewed the Head Custodian and she and a few other janitors all report that this "ghost" huants the third floor. And his name is "Big Will" I was told he didnt die there.

I am a jr at central and my freinds and i went exploring around the school one saturday and we got random chills. We were down in the basement on the 2 side and we got a chill and it fel like something was going right through you.I have no doubt that the school is haunted. We are going on a "Gohst Hunt" this july to see if we can find anything.

this is my school and i have never witnessed any hauntings here, but that doesnt mean anything i am only here during the day. The school is very old and with the wood floors it does creek alot as expected.

I am currently a senior at CHS and, no, I have no real proof of the fact that it's haunted. But I have had the creepy feelings everywhere in that school. I have seen lights go off without there being a switch pulled, doors that stay open by way of magnets close when the power goes out. It's flat out creepy, but I love it! It's really creepy after a concert for band or something and you are walking the school.

I am a class of 98 graduate and I remember a civil war era soldier in the attic/ art supply room on the fourth floor. I was getting some supplies for the class and when I went into the supply room, I saw a man in a Union officer's uniform and he smiled and then vanished immediately. If I am not mistaken, there are tunnels that lead from the basement of that school in the rifle range and the lead into the Old Market. They were used during the Civil War for the underground railroad when the building site was a territorial capital.

I went to Central. I discovered a few of the tunnels. Lots of weird stuff late at night... Was there for drama activities. Love that school, though.
Kat Posted: 10/31/2009
Eagles27, when did you graduate from Central? I'm curious to know when you saw the tunnels, because my grandmother and great grandmother went to that school and I'm curious.. I was supposed to go there but at the last minute moved away.
