I've heard Vilas elementary in sunset heights is haunted. I bought one of Ken Hudnall's books looking for more info, but not really much is said. Supposedly the attic lights are said to turn on by themselves and occasionally a person's silhouette can be seen in the windows. The odd thing is I've never been able to find any attic level windows on the building.. so I'm not sure what the deal is there. I live nearby and have never seen anything unfortunately.

There is a house on Silver Street. You can't miss it. It is unusual looking. It's claimed to be Pancho Villa's favorite ***** house. My best friend lived there for a few months quite a few years ago. It is definelty haunted. There is like a tower in the kiving room where the attic used to be. It is now sealed off due to someone girl hanging herself. The dog she owned used to growl constantly in the upstairs bedroom and women in period clothing have been seen standing at the top of the stairs. It is one of those old houses where the steps are right at the bedroom door so you have to be careful to step down as soon as you open the door. In the basement is a small crawl-through space that leads to some tunnels. It is said that Pancho Villa would ride his horse through the tunnels to escape authorities when they came looking for him at the ***** house. A few of my friends walked the tunnel from the house and said they wound up at 5-points.

All of Yandell is supposed to be haunted since the cemetary was said to be spread all along the place. They gathered the graves and condensed them into one place making the cemetary. I worked for a physician in 5 points and that placed had it's moments such as the St. Francis picture flying of the wall several times.

6-west at WBAMC used to be the surgical ward way back in the days and then became the psych ward. Not sure if it still the psych ward but it was back in the 90's. The lockers would open voluntarily and constantly. There was also a figure of a boy standing in the corner in the last room down the hall. They said that room used to be the operating room.

OK- last one: not too sure what went on in the Old R.E. McKee mansion on scenic but I do know that there are hidden tunnels into rooms. I've heard rumors about the lights being turned on and off and noises coming from the place when the current owners were out and the place was being renovated.

I looked into the Bigfoot thing a little bit because I had a cabin way up in the woods outside of Cloudcroft for awhile and I decided to freak myself out (which I was successful at). I didn't realize that there was such a thing as the Horizon City monster. I had some property up in the Cascades in Oregon in the late 90's and that was a big topic up there because allegedly that is where most of the sightings occur. I had read that the Mescalero around Ruidoso have long reported such sightings. This stuff is such great entertainment. Where do you think that airplane graveyard is that is referenced?
