James Allison Mansion - Real Haunts in Indianapolis IN
- 3200 Coldspring Road
- Indianapolis, IN
This mansion was built in the early 1900s after James Allison, a well-known figure of the auto and plane industry of that time purchased the land. While Allison achieved financial success, his marriage was not so. He ended divorcing his wife in 1928 after he fell in love with his secretary. He soon after moved on to marrying a former employee named Lucile Musset. And at the age of 56, he died of pneumonia which lead to the estate going up for sale in 1936.
The Sisters of St. Francis of Oldenburg ended up purchasing the property and was put to use as home to the college's library, administrative office, classrooms, and sleeping quarters for the Sisters.
It is believed an apparition of a little girl who drowned in the basement pool exists here. Witnesses have claimed seeing the little girl's apparition, hearing voices in the attic, and seeing things moving on their own. The property is located on the grounds of Marian College.

Terrifying study break
While attending Marian University my roommate and I went for a walk down to the “Eco-Lab” which is wetland behind Allison Mansion. As we approached what used to be the drain for the pool in mansion that leads to the creek we heard a whining sound, we kept walking because it could be the breeze running through the trees or any number of things from the surrounding area. We got closer and both felt cold (it was the beginning of May) and we turned to see a small girl crying. We took off back to the dorms and didn’t look back Posted 7/30/18
