Amboy – Amboy School – The Teacher and students, K-8 , have experienced someone coming in the front door but when looking out into the hall from the classroom, there is no one there. Also, on windless days, the swings out on the back playground would swing on their own. Down in the gym, at night, when students play basketball, items would relocate themselves; a broom, standing against the wall, would be seen standing against another wall. This of course unseen by the students until they looked to see the broom was in a new location. The teacher,
working down in the school at night, on numerous occasions, experienced something watching her and one night has to abandon her lesson preparations and beeline it out of there pronto…is was said that several Indians working on the nearby railroad (1868) died and that their ghosts roam the town. The school was closed in 1999…. there is the Amboy Cemetery located down by the tracks with approximately 15 souls buried there. Amboy currently is up for sale.
