A young actor, Ken Yandell apparently hanged himself from a pipe in the basement of this theater. His ghost seems to spend most of time in the strange corridor filled basement where he died. A wardrobe woman was so frightened one night by cackling coming from the stage, that she left and never returned.
Apparently, a school bus full of children was driving down one day and got stuck on a road with railroad tracks and was hit by an oncoming train. Most of the children died. On most nights you can go there and drive your car on to the tracks, stop it, put in neutral, and the children will come and push you off the tracks to keep you out of harms way.

Brought from England Apparitions of a man have been reported. January 2004 additional information: They say a young man built this castle for his bride to be. The wedding was to be held in the newly finished house, but on the wedding day, the bride was found floating in the lake. No one was sure if she died accidentally or if foul play was involved ...But a few months later the groom married the dead woman's sister. Now, at night, the bride can be seen running from the house, across the road and towards the lake before disappearing. The actual history of the Castle is not quite as dramatic as the ghost stories it has spawned...but in case anyone is curious... The Castle was originally an 1860's rock farmhouse that was purchased in the 1920's by the Whitings. After extensive renovations and the addition of the round crenulated front wing and the rear tower the rambling mansion took on the look of a castle. It was completed in 1938 and Mrs. Whiting, who mostly supervised the renovation, named it "Inverness". The residence has seen several owners in the past and at one time Gary Stewart stayed there while filming a movie in the 1950's. In the not so distant past the castle was vacant for a long period of time and was in such disrepair it was on the verge of being condemned. It is now currently occupied and restored.

Carter was established just after the end of the Civil War in 1866 – 1867. The name comes from Judge W. F. Carter – one of three town founders. The three men established the town around a business operation – a flour mill on Clear Fork Creek. The town was granted a post office in 1888 that remained open until 1907. The population dwindled in the 1920s due to its proximity to Weatherford, Texas.
