Located in Yale, Oklahoma, “Satan’s House” was once the old Norfolk school. Supposedly, two children found themselves trapped in the basement’s boiler room when the school burned down. Both kids died in the fire and now, allegedly, haunt the location. There are also rumors of Satan worshiping taking place in the school sometime after the fire (hence the name).
This legend has its share of variations. On the Strangeusa website, it states an old man died tilling his field nearby the school (no mention of any children dying). Shadowlands reported very much the same but amended the listing in 2007. According to their sources, “Satan’s House” was an old oil refinery not a school and a 5 year old girl died trying to rescue her brother’s bike from a sludge pit. The area is or was known for its oil refineries especially during the oil boom and an Oklahoman group called Sooner Paranormal of Oklahoma did investigate an abandoned one stating it to be the actual “Satan’s House”.
I’m not totally convinced it’s the same place. Most of those familiar with the legend says its a school. Although, some people have doubts that even the school is the actual “Satan’s House”. Those who have visited the location have reported little to no evidence of Satan worshiping at the school. One visitor posted their story and photos on the urban exploration website Underground Ozarks. They mentioned seeing an abandoned house a few hundred feet from the school. Could it be the actual “Satan’s House”?
Those interested in this legend may not have much longer to investigate its origins…or at least the old school’s part in it. Those who live in the area say a lot of the brush and trees had been cleared out, making it easier to find. However, there are rumors the ruins are being torn down to make room for a new oil refinery or perhaps some other business. I believe the property is fenced in and while there may or may not be any "No Trespassing" signs I don't recommend hopping the fence to check it out unless you are able to obtain proper permission from whomever owns the property.
