Heroes from all wars are buried in the Springfield National Cemetery, including a Revolutionary War soldier and hundreds of Civil War soldiers killed during the Battle of Pea Ridge, Battle of Wilson's Creek and the Battle of Springfield. It is said that floating orbs and glowing gravestones have been photographed here.
Built by the Knights of Pythias as an orphanage in 1913, the structure was later owned by the U.S. Military for more than 50 years. The nearly 40,000 square feet contain more than 50 rooms, including dungeons and a ballroom. The Paranormal Task Force and the Ozark Paranormal Society have certified Pythian Castle as a haunted site. One-hour tours are offered daily. Murder mystery dinners, comedy nights, ghost tours, and other special events occur regularly.
