Little Rock by day is a vibrant, modern metropolis, alive with commerce and energy. By night, however, it is a city of the unquiet dead. At the Arkansas State Capitol, a politician' s spirit rides the elevator. On Woodson Lateral Road, a pale girl in a torn dress flags down drivers for a final ride. At The Empress of Little Rock Bed and Breakfast, a ghostly gentleman greets guests on the stairs.
Across the Arkansas River, in the bowels of the U.S.S. Razorback submarine, spectral sailors stand at eternal battle stations. Just down the street at the library in Argenta, a phantom mob is doomed to replay their part in a terrible crime. In Mount Holly Cemetery, the headstones creep across the grass by moonlight, witnessed only by wraiths in Victorian dress.
These are just some of the stories to be found in The Ghosts of Little Rock -- a blood-chilling journey to 18 of Central Arkansas' most haunted places. Written by the paranormal investigators who have been there long after the living have locked the doors and gone home for the night, it s a stroll down some of the darkest streets in the city, to places where the dead refuse to stay dead.
