There is a farm northwest of town that some guy built a park across the road from. Its said that he built it after his daughter died so her spirit could play, it has life size playhouses and stuff, really creepy in the middle of the night.

My buddy use to have a really bad house when it came to ghosts. He would get out of his car and all of a sudden a ghost dressed up real nice would sprint at him and right before he would get to him he'd disappear. They use to have a little house off of their own house, and they tore it down and that's where they believe the ghosts came from. Also, his mom would go in the kitchen, close all the cabinets and go out in the living room to come back and all the cabinets open. Doors and cabinets and everything else were opened when she was the only one home and would slam shut at other times.
I have personally been to this memorial on the NW part of Ames. Rumor has it that it was built for his daughter that had died at a young age. It's located on a country road and as you come over a hill you start to see wood signs that say things like, play, rainbow and so on. It's believed they represent words the girl liked when she was alive. I admit it is very creepy, but keep in mind to be respectful because the man who built it watches over it. He came out once with a shotgun when we drove by really slowly and came to a complete stop the first time we saw it. Ever since then, when we went by, we never again stopped. We just drove to the next driveway and turned around to see it again.
