Initially built as a school for Choctaw Indians, Wheelock Academy, in Millerton, later served as a school for girls. Some of these girls, mistreated and murdered by their abusive instructors, are said to still haunt the grounds. The school’s administrators were reportedly very strict with their pupils, and abuse and beatings were common punishment for wrongdoing. For some students, the beatings proved fatal, and their bodies were secretly buried on school grounds. Witnesses claim to have seen several apparitions here, including the spirits of young girls dancing outside in the moonlight. Strange lights have been reported, and other witnesses claim to have encountered the spirits of old women, probably former teachers, who chased them from the area. Still other people say they have seen the spirit of the former groundskeeper, who sometimes acknowledges their presence.

There are many different stories of the spirits that haunt these grounds. Most involving a man that forced entry into the girls mission and brutally murdered the little girls. Walls and trees bleed, ghosts can be seen hanging from trees or sitting in chairs, underground tunnels that lead somewhere but nowhere, and also the spirits are said to protect the near by graveyard. One incident a couple of young kids intrigued by the place thought it would be a good Halloween gag and got more than they bargained for when they tried to take a vase from a grave. Their car would not start, upon returning the vase their car started with no problem. They will not return to this day.

I visited Wheelock on halloween one year with a group of friends. We brought food to distract the dogs that roam the grounds at night. The second floors were all distorted up and down. The tunnels exist and we found them to be filled with pipes and dust. Everybody was so busy scaring eachother that the real spooks probably had a hoot watching us. The water table has risen into the pump house behind the main building. If there are tunnels leading back there they could not be accessed. A true basement on I believe the west side had taken on water but not too much to keep us out like the pump house. We rescued a big turtle upside down on one of the steps down to the basement. The church on the property has real wow factor. We were idiots that night. We ran a friend up the flag pole and shook it until he screamed he would come off if we didn't stop. We had alot of fun. We were trespassing despite being adults that should know better. I wish we had seen something real spooky but were to busy goofing off to give a ghost a chance. We entertained them that nite!

Would you be able to email me your pics please? I'm not able to view them on this site. My email address is sjr7900@yahoo.com I believe I have relatives buried there but have never been able to visit. Thanks! Even if you can't email me the pictures it would be great to hear about the cemetery.

I have been to this place many time as I grew up about 15 miles from there.  Every time we have had weird things happen every time!  This place is for real!  It is now open for tours as a museum during the day and night time visiting is prohibited and closely guarded.

It's like a federal offense to be on the grounds at night. This place is real though. I live in Broken Bow, OK, roughly 30mins from Wheelock. It's a legit haunted place!

About 12 years ago, I went on a school trip to this place before the remodling and I can say that this is a truely haunted place. The underground tunnels are real. You cannot see ever with a flashlight and you smell gasoline in the tunnels outside the house and underneath it. Several of my fellow classmates witnessed a strange shadow in the former gym and the upstairs corridor where the rooms for the girls was. I will not say that this place is haunted by evil spirits or anything as such I just believe that some times bad stuff happen and it leaves it mark on the land.

I went to that place when I was real young. An old man gave us a tour. He showed us through the building. Then he took us outside. We went to that tree that they hanged people from. while observing it. The whole tree started shaking. It was filled with horse apples. They started raining down on us. One even had a bloody child size handprint on it. When it was over, the old man had disapeared. We got outta there quick, but I wish we would have taken pics.

I went back to the cemetery a week after my best friend was buried there. It was late at night when my fiance and I got there after driving in from Houston. I came out of the cemetery bacause I didn't have a light with me. There was an old man at the gate and ask if I needed a light, he handed to me and when we turned to go back he was gone. Good thing I had ,had a few, my wife now says she'll never go back in the dark. He was nowere to be found!

My great grandma was a student there. She and her daughter took my mom there. My mom said that there was a pentagram somewhere on the premises, and that the people who ran the place did practice occult things. I want to see it for myself.

I've been there once two years ago.. we were camping at Pine Creek (roughly 15 minute drive) we were in a truck that would tell you that the tires were going flat and speak of the devil the sensor came on that a tire was going flat. we stayed for a while longer, i seen a couple silhouettes (spelling?) walking over a grave and the other people that were with me sen someone standing by the tree next to the church. Very scary, haunted and legit place to go if you're looking for a scare!
