The Spirits of Stricker Ranch | Hansen, Idaho | History | Magic Valley | Paranormal | IdaHaunts

Situated in Twin Falls is what might at first appear to be some old derelict buildings, but if we delve a little deeper, we see there is alot more than meets the eye.

The ranch was erected in 1865, one of the valleys very first buildings, and run by a German man Herman Strickler, who had earlier immigrated there with his wife Lucy Walgamot.

The ranch was mainly used by travelers who wanted to access the Oregon Trail. Herman would often open up his own home to aid sick immigrants but sadly many did not make it, because antibiotics were scarce, so he made a small cemetery just behind the property and laid the bodies to their final resting place.

Today the site is a popular hotspot for paranormal investigators and ghost hunting teams, all in search of its rich mystery and intrigue.

Many visitors claim to have seen multiple clear apparitions around the ranch as if going about their daily routines! Maybe unaware of their own passing maybe?

One reporter states that recently the ranch was bombarded with gangs of teenagers holding midnight seances there.

There was rumour that Herman Strickler himself was killed with an axe by the hands of Lucy his very own wife! But this was later debunked as reports came in that Herman actually died very peacefully in 1920.

Yet many are still convinced that the ranch is heavy with paranormal activity, believed to be spirits from the cemetery, who still linger there.

A very eery and fascinating place to visit if ever you are in Twin Falls.
