Jacksonville – Jacksonville City Cemetery – There is a statue by the name of Mother Templeton. It is said that during full moons she changes her positions. Some have seen her holding one hand over her heart and her left hand down by her side, some have seen her holding a bible in the palms of her hands, and some have seen her holding flowers in her hands.
Jacksonville – Killough Monument – The history of Killough Monument involved the Killough Family who settled there and built a home. Eventually Indians came along who wanted to take over their land and massacred the family and destroyed their home. The monument was supposedly built in the same place the house was located, with the graves of the family members surrounding it. The monument itself is a brick pyramid formation on a concrete foundation. The foundation is approximately 4 feet tall and the pyramid is about 15-18 feet from the ground to the top. On top of the foundation there is 4-5 inches from the edge, to where the bricks begin. On the south side of the monument, the second layer of bricks from the top, which was 3 bricks side-by-side, with bricks surrounding the top and bottom, the center brick is missing. Since this monument is the same formation on four sides, not sure if it is hollow or not, believed to be nearly impossible for any human to remove that brick.
Jacksonville – Lon Morris College – Craven-Wilson Dorm – The dorm is haunted by a supposedly female ghost and each year she chooses a resident to live with. Sources say the ghost is apparently the former dorm director Ms. Brown who died of cancer before her term as director was completed. Sources say her spirit feels the need to complete her stay as the dorm director. Harmless activities are noticed by residents in the chosen room such as: things being moved on shelves, drawers being opened, electronics turning on and off, radio stations changing on their own, noises being heard from the room while the occupants were away for the weekend, clothes moving in closet, dishes being re-arranged, items jumping off shelves as if pushed from behind, unexplained steaming water from the cold water pipes, and the shower curtain would be pushed in with great force towards the occupant while showering.
