Today’s Clue for the “Bewitched in Billings” Contest
If you’ve been playing our “Bewitched in Billings” Halloween Contest, hopefully you knew that Friday’s Haunted Hot Spot was the Moss Mansion. One of the most famous landmarks in the Magic City, this turn of the century mansion is allegedly haunted by two ghosts.
The patriarch of the family, Preston B. Moss built the house for his family back in 1903 and lived there until his death in 1947. Several witnesses have reported seeing him descend down the staircase at night. His daughter, Virginia Moss, was born in the mansion in 1903 and tragically passed away at the age of 5 after a bout with diphtheria. Servants and visitors alike have seen the image of a little girl, believed to be Virginia, going up and down the staircase.
Monday’s “Bewitched in Billings” answer is a person, not a place. For decades, visitors have reported seeing the image of this woman, dressed in a flowing white night gown, walking near the Yellowstone River about 5 miles east of Billings. Here’s a hint: If Justin Timberlake ever saw this woman, he might tell her to “Cry Me a River”. If you’ve got a guess, here’s the link to submit your answers.
