Based upon Beth Cooper's book, Ghosts of Kansas, longtime residents and business owners explain the historical significance of haunted venues, including former funeral parlors, hotels, underground cities and a former governor’s mansion. Each interviewee describes their encounters with inexplicable spiritual activity, ranging from mysterious shadow figures and stirrings in the attic to phantom cigar smoke and baffling piano music.

Commonly referred to as Satan, Beelzebub, demon, Lucifer, old serpent, and the wicked one, the devil conjures up a variety of names and representations in spoken and written language and in the arts. But just who is the devil? Where does the familiar image of the devil come from? What does it mean? And why are we both attracted and repulsed by it?
