In the late 1800s Father Donald MacLeod was struck and killed by an oncoming train on the Indianapolis and Cincinnati Railroad while on his way to provide comfort and sermon to a seriously ill woman. Locals, including parishioners, have seen his ghost walking along the street near the building or by the railroad tracks.
