BROWN COUNTY, Ind. (WXIN) – One of the most haunted places in the Midwest is just an hour south of Indianapolis.

The Story Inn located in Nashville, Indiana is the state's oldest country inn.

Dr. George Story founded the village of Story in 1851. Story became a booming settlement a few decades later, but it was abandoned after the Great Depression.

Rick Hofstetter purchased the town in 1998. He never believed in ghosts, so he was surprised to find documentation of paranormal activity in the inn's guestbooks.

One of the most well-known ghosts is the "Blue Lady;" she is said to be the wife of Dr. George Story.

Guests have recorded hundreds of encounters with her. They say her eyes are hypnotic blue and she smells like cherry tobacco. She also frequently leaves behind items blue in color.

If you're interested, you can stay in the "Blue Lady Room" and summon her by turning on the blue light next to the bed.
