Anderson native to lead county ghost tour

ANDERSON — Growing up in Madison County, Nicole Kobrowski liked to visit some of the area’s creepier places, such as Moss Island Road just west of the city.

Now she hopes to come back to revisit some of her favorite spots and, this time, bring a few other paranormal enthusiasts.

Kobrowski and her husband, Michael, will host a bus tour March 27 through Madison County, stopping at sites where suspected paranormal activity has occurred, in Anderson, Elwood, Alexandria and Lapel. The Kobrowskis own Unseen Press, which has led ghost walks and tours around Indiana since 2001.

“When we take people on our bus tours, normally we take them to different places that are supposed to be haunted and have a look around,” Nicole Kobrowski said. “We tell the history of the area and talk about what kind of hauntings could be there.”

The Kobrowskis plan to take tour participants to businesses, homes, cemeteries and other places that have been known to be haunted.

“One of the places is Moss Island Road; that was always creepy as a kid for me anyway,” said Nicole Kobrowski, who graduated from Madison Heights High School. “It was just very dark and very creepy and kind of mysterious. I always used to drive through there when I got older and it was kind of cool. I just got a very creepy vibe off of it.”

Nicole Kobrowski said past tours by Unseen Press had turned up ghost sightings and other supernatural events, including once when a woman in the group described a soldier she saw standing in a cemetery and a man who said he was shoved by an unseen presence and showed a claw mark on his arm to prove it.

“In another case there was a man who was a skeptic,” Nicole Kobrowski said. “I saw something in one of the buildings and asked him if he could shine his flashlight into it. He described the same thing I saw: a man standing, and you could see a wisp of hair on his forehead and the crook of his nose.
