Get lost in a tragic tale, a ghost story from the days of the railroad:
Moonville began its existence as a simple railroad and coal and clay mining town, founded around 1856. At its peak, about one hundred mining employees and families lived in Moonville during the mid to late 1800’s. After an 1880 train derailment, in which two trains collided, the ghost stoy, a tale of a light that blinded train conductors, began. In February 1895, the Chillicothe Gazette wrote the following: "The ghost of Moonville, after an absence of one year, has returned and is again at its old pranks, haunting B&O S-W freight trains and their crews. Monday night the ghost appeared just east of the cut, which is one half mile the other side of Moonville. It showed up in front of fast freight No. 99 west bound, which is due at Moonville at 8:50 p.m. The train was hauled by engine 226, in charge of Engineer William Washburn. The conductor was Mr. Charles Bazler. The ghost was attired in a pure white robe, and carried a lantern. It had a flowing white beard, its eyes glistened like balls of fire, and surrounding it was a halo of twinkling stars. As the train approached, the lantern was swung across the track. . ."
