  There is a house in the heart of town almost to the high school in Stanwood, IA where a man murdered his wife, and she has never left. She is spotted in the windows of the empty house standing there. Until you see her then she disappears. No other activity is reported, and the house has remained empty since the murder, but she is there. No one knows if she is a vengeful spirit angry about her early departure from the land of the living, or if she appears
    as a warning to people that that is her home, and she isn't willing to share it.

There are two houses on a hill just south of Stanwood. The house on the west side of the gravel road is haunted by two ghosts, spirits of men who died in the house. Through the 1950s, 60s, and 70s, the house was home to a family of seven children: six boys and one girl. Many of the children have heard footsteps late at night moving from one side of the attic to the other. Though there are two ghosts, the family regularly attributed all paranormal activity to Lou. Lou's confirmed sighting was in the upstairs bedroom in the northeast corner of the house.

A future bride of one of the boys was staying over and using that bedroom. In the middle of the night she awoke to see the specter Lou sitting at the foot of her bed. Too petrified to move or call out, the frightened young bride-to-be froze. After a moment, she rubbed her eyes, and Lou was gone. Neither ghost has ever acted out angrily, choosing instead to peacefully exist with the family during those years except for the meanderings in the attic and occasionally rearranging things stored in the attic.

Comment by Casey: My mother is the bride-to-be in this story. She told my brother and I this story when we were very young, and it kept us awake for nights.
