The Jonathan Padelford - Real Haunt in Saint Paul MN

- Saint Paul, MN

This Mississippi River steamboat is rumored to be haunted by a man who drowned after he climbed to the top of the pilothouse and then fell into the river. Both passengers and staff members have claimed they heard this phantom scene replay, complete with footsteps and a large splash. When they go to check it out, no one is ever found in the water. Today, sightseeing cruises are available on the steamboat.

This story is as fake as the stern wheeler (it has hidden propellers below the water). This boat has only been around since the ‘70’s, and there is NO RECORD of any such accident in news articles from that time! The only “spirits” here are the watered-down drinks on this “tourist trap”! Save your money and go to a local corn maze/haunted house; at least you can leave there when you want!Posted 9/9/23
