An Introduction to the Haunted Sallie House
On a quiet street in the small town of Atchison Kansas sits one of the country’s most well known “Haunted” houses. On 508 North Second street in Atchison Kansas, is better known as “The Sallie House”. Over the years the house has been the subject of several TV shows and has drawn many paranormal investigative teams and psychics in an attempt to unravel the mysteries regarding who or what still resides in the modest, two story, brick home.
The home was originally constructed for the Finneys’. Michael Finney purchased the home and lived there with his family until his death, which occurred in 1872. There have been four documented deaths that have occurred in the Sallie House.
Michael Finney- 1872
Richard “Edwin” Finney- 1874
William True- 1918
Agnes Finney True – 1939
The name “Sallie” originated from several psychics including Peter James who believed that her spirit haunts the house. The psychics believed that “Sallie” was six year old girl who came to the house one day suffering from acute appendicitis where the local town doctor, Charles Finney, resided and practiced. It is said that in the doctor’s “haste” he failed to fully anesthetize the young girl and she awoke during surgery in terrible pain and horror and then died from shock and blood loss.
However many paranormal researchers believe that Sallie never existed and that a demon haunts this home. To date there is no historical records to validate the existence of Sallie living in Atchison, or having died at the Sallie House.
