Old Catholic Church

Located in historic downtown Hannibal, Mo.


Built in 1876 and located at the corner of South Sixth and Lyon streets. Was originally the First Congregational Church. Remodeled in 1880 and became the Church of the Immaculate Conception. The church moved in 1955 and the building changed hands several times, becoming an American Legion Hall, a wedding reception and banquet facility, a bowling alley, and finally as a community theater.It’s been described as when you walk inside, you’re walking into a room full of people and they all stop talking as you walk in. During plays, spirits would peek around the stage-left curtain and were mistaken for the crew. Also, church music was heard even though there are no instruments of any kind in the building. The ghostly spirit of a priest giving a sermon has also been heard. This location is endangered. It is currently for sale for 30,000 Dollars.
