Crawfordsville Kiwanis Club


Members of the Crawfordsville Kiwanis Club were treated to an enthralling presentation by Christopher and Christina Hunt, authors of the book “Ghosts and Legends of Crawfordsville Indiana.”

The dynamic duo, also known as the co-founders of the Crawfordsville Paranormal Society, delved into the mysterious and chilling tales that have woven themselves into the fabric of Montgomery County.

The centerpiece of the meeting was the intriguing narrative surrounding the “Crawfordsville Monster,” a story that has sparked both skepticism and fascination among locals. Whether one believes in the original account or the subsequent research findings, there’s no denying the allure of such a legendary tale within our community.

The Hunts, renowned for their dedication to uncovering the truth behind urban legends, didn’t stop there. They regaled the audience with stories about the cursed chair of Oak Hill Cemetery, the eerie Spooky Hollow, and the paranormal activities whispered to haunt the old Culver Hospital. As they shared their life’s work and passion for exploring the unknown, the room was filled with a palpable sense of curiosity and wonder.

Members of the Crawfordsville Kiwanis Club were visibly engrossed in the presentation, reflecting the deep connection many residents feel to these local legends. Despite the mysterious and sometimes spine-chilling nature of the tales, the meeting was enjoyed by all in attendance, fostering a sense of camaraderie and shared intrigue.

Looking ahead, the Crawfordsville Kiwanis Club is excited to announce its upcoming speaker, Matt Williams, the Director of Conservation Programs with The Nature Conservancy. His presentation is scheduled for 11:30 a.m. today, at the Crawfordsville District Public Library. Members and the public alike are invited to come and enjoy another engaging discussion that promises to enlighten and inspire.
