Stories from Valles Mines and Surrounding Areas
Valles Mines Missouri has for generations, even centuries, been a place of more questions than of answers. Its many graves, occurrences, and stories have intrigued people for a long time. It just seems to attract the strange and unexplained.

By the time I was 10 years old, I had already heard a dozen stories about “unnatural” happenings here... I remember old men telling me of a man who once lived there... They said he possessed the bend silverware with his mind and make a broom dance around the room. Such stories and testimonies were not unusual around Valles Mines...

Well this is my story, a collection of nearly 50 years of hauntings, occurrences, investigations, and “past-ons”...This book is not intended to make you believe or not believe in anything. It is just a collection of my experiences... "
