The Old Combs School was used for many years. Closed down in the early 1970's for the new school that is still used today. The old abandoned school is on a hill above the new school. It's been told you can hear kids talking, teachers still give kids the lessons. Walking can be heard in the old halls, lights seen and sights of someone in windows. The school was kindergarten to the 8th grade. It is thought principal Spicer, who died in the late 60's or early 70's, still is on the job today. The building is in poor shape and not to safe anymore. After all, that’s why it was abandoned that long ago.

Water faucets coming on and off. Televisions in classrooms blinking on and off with no intentions. Bats and crows (blackbirds) coming in and out of the windows, or sitting on the windowsills. It is a place that is dark and damp anyways, but the strange Phenomena that goes on is still horrifying.
About 50 years ago when this building was being built, one of the workers who was building the stairs that go up to the ambulance service, beside the police department fell, crashing to his death. The other workers were afraid that they would be blamed for his death, so they buried him under the stairs where his remains are still said to be. At night you can hear things coming from the stairs, there are cold spots and sometimes when watching movies certain scenes are fast forwarded.
Reports of an overwhelming feeling of evil. Mist have been seen rising from some of the graves in the cemetery behind the church. Voices that were not heard by the people visiting the area have been picked on voice recorders. Orbs have also been seen in the church, in the cemetery and in the wooded area surrounding the church.
