My Parents’ Haunted Home

01 December 2020 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

My parents house is haunted. I’ve known this since we moved in when I was 14. Things would constantly be moved around and us kids were always blamed for it. It was a two story house and we would always hear footsteps coming from upstairs when no one was up there, or even home at all. It became so normal that we were always surprised when friends mentioned it. It was the norm for us. It wasn’t the only thing that happened while I lived there. One night I was up late in our living room and my parents were asleep. I heard a scratching at the backdoor, which I assumed was our dog wanting back inside. I got half way across the room before remembering that the dog was

The Clothes Were Swinging

30 November 2020 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

Growing up, my best friend and I, would play with the ouija board. As we grew older, she would be able to do automatic writing. I tried but could never clear my mind enough. I was being abused by my step-father from being eight. By this time I was sixteen. She and I were up late doing the automatic writing and in what we called one of our sessions it said, ” Beware of the closet, there will be a warning and something is going to happen, but you will be ok.” A few months go by and I am fooling around with my boyfriend and I look at my closet for some reason and I saw this pale boy with red lips and slick black hair smiling at me.

The Haunted House of Shadows

23 November 2020 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

I was about 6 years old when these experiences happened. When I was young my parents had divorced causing our family to abruptly split up and move into different homes. My dad moved my brother and I to a new apartment, owned by my father’s best friend. It was a nice apartment (half a house) that had many rooms and a lot of space for my brother and I to play in. Money was tight but my dad did what he could to provide for his kids. This house seemed normal at first, but it all seemed to quickly change. I have a few very frightening occurrences happen in this house, and they still haunt me to this day. My first experience began soon after we moved in. I had

Harold and the Cat

19 November 2020 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

As long as I can remember I have had an interest in the paranormal and supernatural and have had many experiences through my life. The house I lived in as a child in Bristol, England harboured both friendly and not so friendly entities and it is the experiences with both of these I want to share with you. I cannot remember when the strange occurrences started but I think it may have had something to do with the use of a ouija board in the house. It was used at Christmas when my grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins were all in the house. I was not present in the room where the board was used but saw it laid out before the session began. I don’t know what happened but

The Pipe Smoker

09 November 2020 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

Just completed a sail from USA to Scotland. I visited many harbors and inlets around this gorgeous country. I was actually able to meet ancestors of my family clan “Fraser”. I have a strong family background in sailing. which basically began in Scotland and England. One night, I had anchored off a small community named Portree. A beautiful seaport. I spent three nights on the hook and went in town with my dingy. I spent time walking the entire town taking in all the history and folklore. Incredible history and stories told by the locals. I have a 40 foot wooden Ketch, which was built in the USA around the early 1900″s and has thousands of miles of sea time on her hull. I woke up on the third morning

The Hefty Price

30 October 2020 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

In 1944 my family moved into an apartment that no one wanted. The lure of cheap rent was not enough of a draw for even the most desperate. We were more than desperate, we were a family living on the margin. The margin of opportunity, money and sanity. We were the working poor, with a questionable pedigree. Housing had always been an issue, because of finances… and other matters of social delicacy. Our last chance was waiting, we had been disappointed before . My parents were shown dismal cold water flats fit for vermin, in industrial slums. Once property owners or Real Estate agents saw the dark skinned man with the blonde wife, suddenly there were no vacancies. To get rooms above a store on the avenue would take a

The Entity and a Decade of Poison

26 October 2020 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

April 2010, I find myself thoroughly injected in yet another hopeless, mundane, uneventful day in deep east Texas. Twenty-two years old with more life experience than most could dream at that age, though little evidence existed to support that claim other than the slide reel of countless memories ever rotating in my mind. At this point, I am approaching my 4th wedding anniversary however it wouldn’t be smiles as she was residing for a prolonged stay out of state, I’m staying with a friend and his wife attempting to find some financial stability. They were kind enough to let me work out what I had needed and provided me a room to make my own out of an old art studio in the rear of the house. The couple that

Who’s That Knockin’ at the Door?

22 September 2020 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

My mom was sitting at the kitchen table, up early as usual. The time was around 5 am. She sat reading her Bible while puffing on her ever present cigarette. Our house was an old parish as the church was catty-cornered across the street from us. It had been a one bedroom house with a front and back porch. As our family grew to three boys and three girls, my dad had added on to the house and enclosed the porches to become part of the house and added two new bedrooms with a basement below (as my mom was very scared of tornadoes). Where the back porch had been enclosed it was made a part of the kitchen. As you were sitting at the table you could look down

Friendly Ghosts

08 September 2020 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

After I graduated college, my friends and I were a bit tapped out (we had little money) but we lived in Buffalo where there were many very old apartments that rented rather cheaply. A friend and his new wife were looking for someplace to live and I accompanied them to look at an apartment they were considering renting. I don’t recall much of what the apartment looked like but I remember going into the living room and having to leave right away. I felt something unnatural in there. I was sure that the apartment was haunted. I never said anything to my friends because I thought they would think I was nuts and I didn’t want to put a negative spin on a place that they had settled on as

Clara

07 September 2020 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

I live in Montana, with my husband and 3 kids. About 6 years ago, we found the perfect starter house. At the time we moved in, my youngest son was 3, and my daughters were 6 and 9. That seems important, because as they get older, our mysterious 6th resident seems to bother them less and less. The first time I heard her, I was alone in the house with my son. He was in my bedroom, watching Mickey Mouse, and I was in my kitchen baking. We have a partial wall with a window to the living room, from the kitchen. As I was taking a pie out of the oven, I heard a laugh. A high pitched, little girls giggle.. that could not have possibly come from my

Colorado Shadow Figure

03 September 2020 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

About a decade ago, the economy picked me up out of my apartment and firmly plopped me back into my parents’ house in southern Denver. I adore my parents and get along with them really well, but I couldn’t shake the feeling of being a failure in not being able to take care of myself financially. In hindsight, that was a common struggle for many of my millennial counterparts during that time. On top of this, internal political issues at my job of four years had encouraged me to jump ship and land in a less-than-stellar management job at a big box pet store. The stress of this job really took a toll on me. Long hours of late nights, followed by early mornings, on top of really foul company

Ghost Follower

25 August 2020 | Haunted houses, Haunted locations, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

Okay so here is my story. At least the best that I can remember it This is long sorry. Before I start the story, you need to know I have been told I am what they call a medium and that ghost are very drawn to me. If you don’t know, a Medium is some who can interact with the spirit world, at least that is what the internet says. I never really investigated what people called me because I never believed it. I have had several encounters with the paranormal in my life, but this is the one that has always stuck with me the most. When my husband and I first started dating we lived in my old apartment together. At this apartment, I swear to you, there

Don’t Close the Door!

24 August 2020 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

I’m a 17 year old girl and am always looking to make some extra cash as teenagers do. A family I will refer to as the Will’s for privacy reasons, live down the road from my house in a pretty thick forest. They have a long gravel driveway they share with two other nosy neighbors, but they leave me alone for the most part. Anyway, the Will’s are a big and very kind family that enjoy going on small trips together. They go on a pretty regular basis and they usually ask me to watch over their chickens and cats while they’re away. They pay pretty nicely too: 40 to 80 dollars on average depending on the length of time they’re away. A very kind amount, if you ask me.

The Apparition on the Staircase

10 August 2020 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

This will be somewhat of a short story, but it IS a true story. When I was about 7 or 8 years old (almost 45 years ago), we had a family sleepover because some cousins and their parents had come to visit from Delaware. We all decided to stay at my Aunt Beaula’s house because it was big enough to comfortably sleep the amount of people that were all there due to the visitation. The kids all played games downstairs in the living room, and most of the adults were seated in the kitchen talking among themselves until it was time for us all to call it a night. This house was an older three-story house and until this time, I had never stayed the night here. I had always
