More than just a college town, Norman owes its persistent population of ghosts to a past rich in legend and steeped in murder. The infamous gangster Lew Murray still lingers in Brendle Corner, searching for his long-buried treasure. Patients who perished in a deadly fire at Griffin Memorial Hospital still roam the vacant wards, while the White Lady eternally descends the east stairs at the Sooner Theater, one of the oldest stages in the state. Author Jeff Provine undertakes a chilling journey through some of Norman's spookiest haunted sites.
