A few years ago after the old hotel was torn down for several months after, there were a few reports of a woman in what appeared to be a night gown seen walking at night in the streets nearby. Most would say it was like she would turn a corner and was gone. In the years that have passed it seems to have tapered off, and to the best of my knowledge there have been no recent sightings. Perhaps a displaced tenant just looking for a home? If so, here is hoping
she moved on and may rest in peace.|

At the school several students and teachers have sighted things such as a man in a black coat in the jr. High math room. Also a white girls arm peeked out of the first floor bathroom. The high school history room there has been sighting of desks moving and stuff being moved around.
At night when you drive by the school if you look in the 3rd floor window at the farthest end you will find a guy standing in the window. In the vocational building, you will see a girl with pony tails walking around with one arm, and if you sit in the woods part of the building you will hear her scream.

Comment by Alexis: I have cousins who live in Joy. One night I went to spend the night we wanted to go for a walk because we were bored so. When we passed by the school a man tried to stop us, but we kept walking we heard a really loud scream behind us, so we turned around and the man that was just there was gone. He disappeared, and he wasn't there anymore. We looked around, and nothing was there, so we kept walking.
As we got maybe five feet ahead, I felt the hairs on the back of my neck rise, and I suddenly felt like someone was watching us, so I turned around, and that same man was standing on the third floor. He looked like he was screaming. I was scared but not much. We went home, and we didn't tell our parents because we didn't think it was real until other people started talking about it. Now every time I go to Joy, I do not at all go out at night. And I hope nobody else does either.
