The Allen House, Monticello

The Allen House in Monticello is apparently haunted by former owner Joe Allen who built the property, but he is not the only spirit that is clinging to the place that they once called home. In fact, the ghost that is spotted most often is actually that of his daughter LaDell Allen who is believed to have committed suicide in the property by drinking cyanide. After her death, Joe moved the rest of the family out of the building and it was converted into smaller, more affordable apartments. It was when this construction began that people first started to report seeing LaDell’s ghost!

A doctor who lived in the house at one time did not hold much stock in ghost stories and told people that rumours of the hauntings were nothing but silliness. However, he was forced to eat his words after developing some photographs he had take of the house and finding a very clear image of LaDell Allen in one of the mirrors in the house! Another resident of the building reported seeing LaDell in their closet. They tried to shut the closet door and it wouldn’t close properly. They heard giggling and opened the door only to see the girl who promptly vanished before their eyes! The first floor of the property was turned into retail space and the store owner would lock the door each night only to return the next day and find items had been moved or were missing completely. Other residents have reported hearing a girl crying, phantom footsteps and other strange noises. Some have even called to police fearing a live intruder, but there is never anybody there!
