The murals and graffiti at Concho Indian Boarding School are beyond amazing! BigBankz BigBankz

You can literally go anywhere in the state and you'll find places that are rumored to be haunted. One such place is the Concho Indian Boarding School. It's located in Concho, OK. right outside of El Reno in Canadian County. Paranormal investigators and those into the supernatural have made this location a major focus.

The school is scary and rumored to be haunted, but the paintings are beautiful! BigBankz BigBankz

It was originally opened back in the early 1900s around 1909 and remained open until 1983. The school was used to forcefully assimilate Native American children. It was home to members of both the Cheyenne and Arapaho tribes and later opened up for other Native American students. Kids from first through eighth grade both girls and boys attended the school. All were forced to conform to mainstream "white-english" society.

The children that were in the boarding school were forced to abandon their Native American traditions, beliefs, and even their native dress and language. The penalties for not acting "white" were severe. The punishment these poor kids would receive was beyond abusive, it was bordering on torture and cruelty.

There are even stories of children that were murdered and buried on the school property. Some died at the hands of school administrators and workers, others died due to malnutrition and poor living conditions. While there's no concrete proof this happened, most believe the stories. Mediums and psychics seem to confirm it.

Absolutely EPIC! I have to make the trip to Concho and see these in person! BigBankz BigBankz

The school was run like a military academy complete with drills, harsh discipline, and lots of manual labor and cores. The school had livestock and grew a lot of its own food and got all of its labor from the children who lived there. This place wasn't just unpleasant, during its years of operation it grew increasingly violent and cruel. The treatment the children received at Concho Indian Boarding school was horrific and inhumane.
