Omaha - Brother Sebastian's - "The Regular" Bill Wolcott was an older
gentleman who, for years, dined at Brother Sebastian's almost every evening.
Wolcott had his peculiarities: he often dressed in a formal smoking jacket
complete with an ascot tie; he always dined in the lounge, always at the same
seat. Unfortunately, Wolcott was stricken with cancer. Although treatments were
painful he continued to dine at Brother Sebastian's, even while he was
hospitalized. When Wolcott became so ill that he could no longer swallow solid
food, the kitchen staff pureed his meals for him. At some point during this
time Wolcott began draping a towel over his head while he was in public; but
for some reason he was drawn to his favorite dining spot. Wolcott, it appears,
felt so comfortable at Brother
Sebastian's that he continues to frequent the restaurant even after his death.
The last report of Wolcott's ghost occurred on the night of the restaurantís
grand re-opening. A woman seated in one of the back dining rooms complained that
someone was staring at her and making her uncomfortable. The
"Someone" to whom she referred was the face of an old man that the
woman claimed was in the stones that make u p the wall of the room. Two of the
staff also witnessed, late one night after the restaurant was closed and all
the doors were locked. They were the only people inside, they saw a swinging
door at the rear of the bar open fully, stopped moving as if someone were
walking through the threshold, and closed. Anyone who has been inside the building
knows that a random wind breezing through to swing doors open and closed is
unlikely: Just like the original building (before the 1995 fire), the new
structure has no windows. Sometimes in restaurants an employee closes the
establishment one night and opens the business the following morning. More than
one server has stated that a candle that they knew was snuffed out the previous
night was burning the next morning.
Omaha - Hummel Park - In Omaha, there is a city park on the northern outskirts
named Hummel Park. The background of this park is very macabre to begin with.
In the early 1900's, Lynch mobs would ride through town and hang or otherwise
mutilate any black people that happened to be in sight. They hung so many black
people that the trees still bow over the road leading to Hummel Park. The weird
part is that young trees and even the grass lean toward the road outside the
park and even inside the park. Apparitions, mists, Indian drums playing at
night, wolves howling. Supposed old Indian burial grounds on sight. Also,
reports of the morphing stairs. It is a staircase which is roughly 200 stairs
long. The word, ďroug hlyĒ is used because every time you go up and or down it
you will count a different number of stairs. There is a staircase at Hummel
Park that if you walk up to the top and count the stairs going up, it will be
less than the number of stairs going down, it is called the stairway to hell
because of this. There have been many reports of animal sacrificings in the
park. There is also a cult of albinos that live in the park, supposedly. But be
careful of crazy people out there if you decide to go.

Omaha - Omaha South High School - At Omaha South High School, there is a ghost.
The ghost's name is Gus. About 20-25 years ago there was a tornado drill. So
everyone had to go to the "Catacombs" as we call them. This was a
part of the building that was built when the performing arts part of the
building was built. It was the 50's so it was built, to be a nuclear fallout
shelter. Well during this tornado drill everyone went down to the catacombs.
Gus, a janitor for the Performing Arts part of the building, thought that they
would be there for a while. So he went to the "Rat Room" to get some
provisions for everyone. He closed the door behind him, went to get a barrel of
food, when it fell on him, and crushed his head. He was not found until he had
been dead for a while. Now Gus still roams the Performing Arts section of the
building, even after it was remolded about 10 years ago. The strange thing is
that if you are in a play there and you don't believe in Gus he will mess you
up. As in you mess up your lines, cues, entrances, etc. He also likes to be in
the Green Room, which is right next to the Catacombs; he leaves lights on and
open d oors.
