About Middle School

Located at 1100 North Washington in Lexington, Nebraska.

The History:

Mildred Sorenson, a 15 year old Girl Scout, fell to her death on March 8th, 1927, while trying to take down the American flag off the flag pole at the Lexington Middle School. After seeing the flag flying over a new addition to the school during the evening hours, Mildred decided that according to proper flag etiquette, the flag should not be left up through the night. She lost her footing, after retrieving the flag and dropping it down to fellow Girl Scouts on the ground and Mildred lost her footing and fell 40 feet.


Doctors were not able to revive Mildred and she died 2 hours later.

Her gravestone reads, "She died for loyalty to the flag..." On the northwest corner of the building, there is a ribbon of stone placed there in her honor.

The Shadowlands web report indicated the Mildred died in the teacher's lounge. It seems more likely that she died at her home or at the local hospital/clinic.

The Haunting:

Reports include instances of lights flickering on and off as well as chairs sliding across the flor when no one else is in the room.

Observations:

Schools are often host to paranormal activity. This is an unusual report however in that a girl actually did die as a result of an incident that occured there.
