Webster Groves – a great place to live, work, and play… even for the departed… Discover eerie legends and uncanny firsthand accounts of the ghostly and supernatural in a neighborhood perhaps just like yours, where residents of a quiet bedroom community come home nightly to unseen footsteps; resign themselves to objects mysteriously moving, disappearing, and reappearing; live with lurking, spectral figures; and otherwise share their homes with the ghostly and supernatural. Some who lived that history have evidently remained. Patrick Dorsey reads from his book, Haunted Webster. The author also invites the audience to share their Kirkwood ghostly accounts for a future book! free
