Springfield Place

According to Coxe, a“hideous little dwarf” reportedly haunts Springfield Place (pictured above), but others claim that it is an elemental spirit.


Day states that an “unseen force” reputedly haunted it, and phenomena included objects thrown, and the faces of sleeping persons touched causing them to wake up. Some have suggested that “an ugly, little dwarf-like gnome” that haunts the area causes the phenomena.
