While there are more than a few ghost stories and haunted places in the Sooner State none are more terrifying than the dreaded Purple Church in Oklahoma. Of course, the place is haunted, but it gets worse than that. It's also rumored to have a demonic presence and is considered a place of pure evil.


Over the years the legend of the Purple Church has grown and its fame for being one of, if not the most haunted places in the entire state. This location is not only very active when it comes to the paranormal, but it's also very active when it comes to the supernatural. It's rumored to be a gateway to hell and home to several demons and other evil spirits who have been conjured by Satanists and witches throughout the years.

Hit play to watch ghost hunters investigate the haunting of the Purple Church

According to one of the legends the Purple Church was a satanic church used for not only devil worship but also for witchcraft and animal sacrifice years and years ago. Local townsfolk eventually found out about the church and its evil followers and burned it to the ground. All that's left is the foundation and the basement. But something else was left behind, something that can't be destroyed by fire or any other means.


Another tale or legend of the Purple Church states that it was originally a house, not a church, and certainly not a satanic church. It was just a normal house that was eventually abandoned by those who once lived there. Some say they all died out, others say it was the sight of a tragic accident when a fire broke out and killed the entire family. It's rumored that the spirits of the family haunt the area scaring away trespassers.
