Dent School House Tales - In 1942, 5 students vanished; in 1945, 4 students did; in 1952, 3 students did, & in 1955, 7 students did. Supposedly the staff complained about a smell, and "Charlie the Janitor" said it was the old pipes. Rumors spread about Charlie, and the basement was searched. It contained decaying remains of the missing students. Charlie was never found by police, & the school closed shortly after.Now the place is a popular haunted house open during Halloween.
