CUTLER, Ind. (WLFI) — The Adams Mill is located in Cutler, Indiana.

Throughout the year, the property is a host to multiple events and festivals.

The mill was completed in 1846.

While the building no longer serves as an operational mill, it's common for ghosts to make an appearance.

People have reported several unexplained noises and apparitions throughout the building.

"You hear footsteps walking up and down the stairs. There's nobody in here. The doors are locked," Matthew LeBeau, the property manager of the board of directors for the Adams Mill, told News 18. "We've had reports of a lady in a blue dress standing in the third-floor window."

The mill isn't the only site on the property with paranormal reports.

The Adams Mill Covered Bridge, which dates back to 1872, is a hot spot for activity.

"We've got reports of people not being able to cross it...like something's keeping them from physically touching the bridge," LeBeau told News 18. "We've had people standing on the bridge, 8-foot shadows, and just absolute swallowing darkness."

Along with historical education, the sites at Adams Mill serve as a tool for those interested in the paranormal.

"Once a month, we do an open-to-the-public investigation," LeBeau told News 18. "You can come out here, and we will give you a crash course in how to become a ghost hunter."

The property also serves as a historic museum and hosts several events throughout the year for guests to enjoy.
