About The Event

In the year 1910, a devastating train accident occurred, resulting in the loss of 19 lives on the land where Poasttown Elementary School now stands. In an era devoid of immediate medical facilities, the land upon which the school was later constructed served as an improvised triage area. Despite relief efforts in the form of dispatched trains, the final death toll reached a heartbreaking total of 36 casualties.

Fast forward to April 1938, the school was officially dedicated and continued its mission of education until the year 2000. However, within those years, the institution witnessed its fair share of tragedies involving both students and staff members. Incidents included reports of children being struck by vehicles and a girl tragically falling from a third-floor staircase.

What lingers within the school's walls is an energy that encapsulates both happiness and sorrow. Frequent testimonials recount the haunting echoes of children's laughter traversing the corridors, accompanied by unexplained disembodied voices that linger within the atmosphere. This includes the once-operational intercom system, now silent but still a conduit for the spectral whispers of the past. This echo harks back to a time when innocence and learning coexisted with darker memories, making Poasttown Elementary School a place where the past is palpable, and the unseen intertwines with the seen.
