The ghost of Bessie in the basement
This picture was taken in a historical home in Parkersburg, West Virginia. Charles Bartlett, a dentist, lived in the home with his wife and children, but one of the children, a daughter named Bessie, died of a typhoid fever in 1879. She was just 11 years old. An infant son also
died in the home a few years later. This pic was taken in the home’s basement, where Bessie reportedly died.
What do you think of the image? Does Bessie’s ghost appear near the wall or is it just an illusion?
