When I was working on the Images of America: Dallas book with Sue Rohde, stories of various "paranormal" happenings in the area popped up on a regular basis. Some were well-known to Sue, a longtime resident, but some were new to us both. Our listeners seem to have a special affection for the more unusual and less publicized side of historic life in our local communities, as evidenced from previous shows on Salem's underground, Chinese burial shrines, and our "darker" institutions. So when we learned of Marilyn Morton's book from History Press, Haunted Independence, Oregon, we were more than delighted when she agreed to come on our show and share her stories with you all.
Marilyn continues to collect unusual stories about Independence, and may do another book in the future just for herself. If you have some information to share, either another story or some information on one of the published stories, feel free to contact Marilyn by email at email@example.com.
