Garden City, Missouri Ghost Sightings
I live about a mile west of Garden City on old 7 and about once in a while I'll hear a train whistle. Twice I heard it when I was outside and it sounded like it was on my property.|

Been here a year and strange things have happened to me and my family. Bedroom door would shake back and forth while door handle moves up and down. When my son pulled the door open there was nothing. People walking on second story of house when no one is home. There are lights in a barn in back yard when there is no electricity. We have seen a younger girl looking into the creek and when got closer to her she disappeared.

On a cloudy summer night around 2 am you can hear the train whistle of an old locomotive as it passes Garden City on it's way to Clinton. Once said the sound is the 'ghost train' which as the story was told to me happened in the late 1880s as the locomotive was passing through town failed to sound the whistle because the engineer feel asleep.
As the locomotive passed the area where the city park is now it struck and killed two children that fell asleep on the tracks listening for the train with their ears to the rail. The engineer who's spirit is lost still travels the old rail line and blows the whistle when he passes Garden City in hopes to save the children he killed more than 100 years ago.
There used to be a memorial near the tracks in the early 1940s, it was removed in hopes the 'ghost train' would not return. Around 2002 the red caboose was relocated from John Cole's property to the city park as a memorial although very few know the story.
