South Pleasant Church

Bonanzaville Unexplained Tour

South Pleasant Church

West Fargo, North Dakota 58078, United States

Created By: North Dakota State University


This historic church was built in 1890 and served its congregation until 2013. It was moved to Bonanzaville in 2015 and underwent extensive renovations before being opened to the public in late 2017.

While the church was being worked on, construction crews reported several instances of the unexplained. Tools would go missing or be found in random locations in the church, child-sized footprints were found in sawdust on the floor (the churched was closed during renovations and no one was allowed on site), and some reported hearing a child's laugh. Most disturbing of all was several reports from the crews that hands were trying to push them off the balcony while they were working up there. It got so bad that crews refused to work before dawn or after sunset.

During a live morning newshow in the church in October 2017, several production lights that had been fully charged flickered and went off for several minutes before coming back on again. They had no trouble with the lights after that.
