Anderson native to lead county ghost tour


“He said I’ll never look at these things ever the same way again.”

The Kobrowskis aren’t out to change anyone’s mind about the presence of ghosts, however. They get a variety of people on their tours, from true believers in paranormal activity to those who are skeptical.

“We want to find different opinions,” Nicole Kobrowski said. “We love history and we put a lot of history with it. We have our own idea of what the paranormal is. Nobody knows; nobody’s been able to prove the existence of a ghost.

“If they come on tours and walk away thinking it was nice but they’re full of hooey, that’s OK too.”

Nicole Kobrowski said she was a true believer in ghosts, but she didn’t always feel that way. When her family moved into an old farmhouse in Madison County when she was a child, ghost sightings occurred that made her believe, including an incident in which her older sister felt someone come into her bedroom and kiss her.

Other incidents occurred when Nicole Kobrowski or her sisters or friends saw a man in a cape in the house.

“It’s been years and years and I’ve had other experiences,” she said. “Some people may think I’m a crack pot, but there’s a lot of us out there.”

Michael Kobrowski said he was surprised at the positive response when he and his wife, married since 1996, asked businesses in downtown Indianapolis whether they had ghosts in their facilities.

“I’m not as sensitive as some people are, but when you feel something and later you compare notes with other people, it’s kind of neat to have that experience,” Michael Kobrowski said.

Madison County ghost bus tour participants have signed up from Anderson, Greenwood, Indianapolis, New Castle and other places around the state, he said. The Kobrowskis likely will plan another Madison County tour in May.

“It seems like this one has been pretty well received so far,” Nicole Kobrowski said. “We have almost a full bus.”
