The Real Hauntings of Fort Abraham Lincoln – The Barracks [WATCH]
We’ve all heard the rumors that Fort Abraham Lincoln is actually haunted, so we decided to find out for ourselves.
As a Bismarck native, I grew up hearing the stories of the hauntings at Fort Abraham Lincoln. We attend the Haunted Fort each year, but do you ever think about what really goes on out there when no one else is around?
Staff members have reported hearing footsteps, voices and seeing figures at the Fort for many years. We asked our friend Matt to give us a tour of the stables, barracks and Custer House after dark to discuss some of the paranormal activity in each building.
First, we looked at the horse stables. In this video we tour the barracks. This is where soldiers slept. Can you imagine spending the night there in the middle of winter with nothing but a stove and fireplace to warm you up? That is how some men died at Fort Lincoln.
Be sure to watch our video above. The next video in our series will highlight the most haunted spot at Fort Lincoln, the Custer House. You won’t want to miss it!
The Haunted Fort begins Friday, October 6th at Fort Abraham Lincoln and will be open the following evenings:
- October 6th & 7th
- October 13th & 14th
- October 19th, 20th & 21st
- October 27th & 28th
New this year is the Zombie Battlefield. You’ll have a chance to kill zombies in this new paintball experience. Tickets for the Zombie Battlefield are $10.
