The Tale Of “Old Book” – The Ghost That Went To His Own Funeral

The Ghost Of Old Book

Bartonville Illinois’s Peoria State hospital has a pretty creepy history and legend surrounding it. Supposedly there was a man by the last name of “Bookbinder” which legend calls him “Old book” that supposedly haunts the area.

Bookbinder worked on the cemetery grounds for years on end. He witnessed numerous people being buried and but eventually his time came as well. Stories say that when his casket was about be lowered into a grave, cries were heard coming from an old oak tree that was directly behind them.

The scary part was that the cries were coming from no one else other than Bookbinder himself.
