Hello. I am in Texas. I have been having strange nightmares the last couple of nights about a cabin in the woods in Indiana. These dreams are really disturbing to me because a young person is asking me for help. I feel there is something evil that is threatening her. She told me in my dream, she was at Drapers cabin. I have never been to Draper cabin nor have I ever heard of it. I told my boyfriend about the dream, he researched it on the Internet, and much to my shock, this place really exists. I have had other dreams and experiences like this in my life. I have always managed to reason them away. I am a skeptic, and always believed there to be a logical explanation. My boyfriend and son believe that I am some sort of sensitive and have convinced me that to come up with the name Draper cabin, the location, and it having a negative history is too much to be reasoned away. I am seeking historical information on the murder that was suppose to have happened there. The Internet is not much help. I would very much appreciate any information that anyone has. If my dreams are more than just that, someone wants my help. I don't have a clue how to provide that.
Thank you so much for this link. There are some elements on some of these postings that are significant in my nightmares, and at least one person claims to be having some dreams about Stepp Cementary. Having never been there, I don't really know the realationship of Stepp Cementary to Draper Cabin. Are these close to each other? In all honesty, I keep trying to reason this all away but, the more the I learn, the harder this is becoming to do. I am not sleeping well at all. I am a middle aged woman and not prone to be a total believer in what other's consider the paranormal. I have always had what I call feelings about people and places that are either good or bad, and some places that I instintively avoid as being bad. I have dreamed about the deaths of people before they happened. In 2003 I lost my dad, my best friend and my cat of 23 years. Since then, I have had many dreams of them as well as other people I don't know, but I do know they are not living.they are usually trying to get me to tell someone they knew in life something. It is usually so unclear. Maybe I just have a vivid imagination but these dreams of Draper cabin are different, more real and urgent.

To help rule out the mundane, can you think of anywhere you might have seen the name 'Draper Cabin' prior to your dreams?Do you read about the paranormal online or visit sites like this one? Have you ever read a book called "Haunted Heartland" or one like it (a compilation of true ghost stories) ? However brief, any exposure to that phrase (Drapers cabin) in this context, even if you don't remember it could explain how the name got into your dream. And, yes, Draper cabin and Stepp Cemetary are both located in Morgan Monroe State Park near Bloomington, IN.
I have never visitied any paranormal sites before having my dreams. I didn't really take my dreams seriously until my boyfriend did research on the internet. I have never read anything about Draper Cabin. I have not read the book you mentioned, or any other haunting book that mentioned it. I feel fairly certain that if I had, I would remember it, just because it is in Indiana. I was born in New Albany, Indiana although I have not lived there for close to 30 years. My boyfriend and I have tried to think of any way I would have this information in my subconscious, and we can't think of any. I have never been there, never heard of it, don't know anyone that has. The family that I have left in Indiana are older people and would not be the type to talk or beleive in the super natural if you know what I mean. I am not even sure I beleive it myself, but I do know that there seems to be too much information in my dreams to simply be conquencidence, but who knows it could be. I have experienced a few other things in my life, where I have known things that I really should have no way of knowing, but I have dismissed them in the past as strange, but nothing more.
