My grandmother grew up near the massacre site. She would often travel to visit other ranches in the area and would often pass through locations where the massacre occurred. She related how as a girl she would see different colored balls of light darting between the sagebrush and juniper trees, as well as the sound of women weeping. Grandmother wasn't prone to flights of fancy, so I give the story a lot of credence.
I've been to the area multiple times and can say that I've not seen any paranormal activity. There is a feeling of sadness there, but much of that could be attributed to my knowledge of the events that occurred there. Posted 10/23/19
