The Haunted School

17 December 2022 | Haunted houses, Haunted locations, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

A friend of mine runs a school for pre-school kids. It is located in a large 1920’s building just outside the city center that was built to strict standards of opulence by a wealthy jewish family.  Unfortunately, when the Nazi’s took over in this part of the world, the family were taken from their home and shipped off to concentration camps where apparently they unfortunately died. Several teachers at the school have reported strange happenings. One, took her boyfriend there returning home from a night out when it was very late with the intention of sleeping on the floor. She said that after about 30 minutes, someone switched the hall light on yet the building was empty. This worried them a bit but they switched off the light and settled

Our Haunted Home: 63 Maple Street

03 November 2022 | Haunted houses, Haunted locations, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

About the town, the Haunting of 63 Maple Street took place in… Belišće, Croatia, the quaint little town that I moved to back in 2017, sits in a corner of southeastern Europe that is near the Slavonian and Hungarian border. It is a place with quite an interesting past, to say the least. The contents of this book center around the history and events that occurred on and around one particular street in town; Maple Street, as it used to be known before the Balkan Wars of the 1990s. The town was originally made up of peaceful working-class people who flocked there from all over Europe, for the most part, to work at the giant sawmill (one of the largest of its kind) created by the founding family of Belišće,

Hotel Ghosts

03 October 2022 | Haunted houses

I once stayed in the Flamingo Hotel in Las Vegas. In the middle of the night, I woke and saw a dark figure moving around the foot of my bed and coming up the gap between the twin beds. I hit the light, and there was a full figure of a man in a ’60s sports blazer with blood all over his face. I yelled ‘Go away!’ and start flinging my arm in his direction. Just like that he disappeared. I woke my friends in the other bed and my buddy said ‘What the hell you swatting at?!’ I told them and they laughed at me. The following morning, my buddy said after I had fallen asleep water was dripping on his head, but there was no leak on the

The Black, Shiny Entity

06 September 2022 | Doppelgangers, Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

I’ve had so many things of a paranormal nature happen to me over the years starting when I was a very little girl up until last year when I turned 60 years old. I don’t know if I’m sensitive to these things, whatever they are, or I’ve just lived in places where the activity was already there and I am tuned into it. The weirdest thing I’ve ever seen was in broad daylight, around 2 p.m. My husband and I were watching TV and my mother-in-law, who lived with us, came out of her bedroom and went out the front door to sit on the porch in the sun. She had left the door open to the bedroom straight across from where I was sitting on the couch in the

A Night at the Rydges Hobart

01 November 2021 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

My husband and I stayed upstairs in the main part of the Hotel (the older one). I had stayed there previously before and had experienced strange things (lights on in the morning when I knew (thought) I had turned them off. This particular night, I woke during the night to sounds of footsteps running up and down the hallway. After a few minutes, I realised that there were only two stories to the hotel, and we were on the second story – there was no upstairs. I ended up going to sleep, and the next morning, my husband said to me, “did you hear those children running up and down the hall last night”; sounded like it was upstairs. I was like, wow !! After we were dressed we went

The Shadow in Our Home

11 August 2021 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

I have lived it the same house since 1996, and it was built in 1987. Fast forward to 2006. Myself, my husband and our to kids lived a regular family life. No strange activity in our house, until the eventful day. It was evening and I was with my daughter in the kitchen, we turned off the lights and made our way to the staircase to go upstairs. I turn the corner and there was a solid black figure standing at the bottom of the stairs. I let out a scream and my daughter asked “what’s wrong mommy?”, I replied “nothing, I just scared myself in the dark” because I didn’t want to freak her out. A month goes by and my son comes home from University. He turns to

My Paranormal Life – Part 3

30 July 2021 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

In 2012, we moved across town into an older ranch-style home and the first night before we are moved in, my brother, slept there alone and told me the next day there was someone walking in the attic! At this time, I am in my thirties and trying to get back on my feet. I move home with my unemployed mom and noticed the walking noises as well. Every night we would hear him walk across the whole house and I named him the ‘attic man’ as the footsteps he produced were too heavy to be a woman. Slowly things started to happen. One night sleeping with my window open, I hear someone say “well are you going to let me in or not?” and I woke up. I will

My Paranormal Life – Part 2

23 July 2021 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

(Part 1 is here) Months later everything started to die down a bit. I was sitting at home by myself and I heard the bathroom water kick on and my hair stood on end as I knew my family wasn’t home, so I stood up and had to tell myself you have to find out why? I went in, turned off the water and left the house, and sat outside until my family returned. I confronted my mother when she got home and that is when she started telling me stories from when I was younger. We were living in a house (it was me my mom and my dad with my sister and brother) and my mom walked by the bathroom and says ‘hi’ to my brother and then

My Paranormal Life – Part 1

22 July 2021 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

My paranormal experiences have been strange but scary and started at a young age, I was twelve years old when my first experience happened and it to this day continues now that I am thirty-six years old. The first night this happened, we were returning home from Mcdonalds and it was the first night I felt normal as my dad passed in front of me earlier in the year while we were homeless and now towards the end of summer we had a house and my mother was working and we were slowly piecing our life together. When we got home from eating, I was sitting in the front room watching tv and I started hearing something that sounded like someone was walking in the attic but I knew this

The Rocking Chair

20 July 2021 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

Around 2002, my husband and I were shopping for a house on Long Island in New York. One was over 100-years old. The broker unlocked the front door and we went in. It had two floors, but we could already tell the house wasn’t for us upon entering the first floor. We agreed to go upstairs and see the whole house, but we were only in the house for maybe 5-minutes. Upon returning to the front door to leave, we found a rocking chair was blocking our exit. The chair was inside, blocking the door! Nobody was there with us. I looked at the broker and said “How did that chair get there?” She had a look of shock on her face and shook her head as if to say

Hugging Margie

23 June 2021 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

I had a paper route when I was younger and delivered it to a lady named Margie. She was very old and lived alone, so I’d take the paper inside and check on her. One day, I went in and she was asleep on the bed, so I put the paper on the table and left. The next day, she was asleep again, and the other newspaper was still unopened. The following day, I went in and Margie was awake. She said she was very happy and gave me a hug. But the day after that, there were cars outside her house. Apparently, Margie had died in her bed, three or four days beforehand. Somehow I spoke to and hugged her about 24 hours earlier when she was already dead.

Ghostly Kiss

08 June 2021 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

I had moved to a new city and had found an apartment overlooking a nice street. That there was a graveyard right behind the house was something I figured much later. Anyway, this was a first-floor house with huge windows in the bedroom. The air was fresh and minty so I left the windows open at night. Right beneath my window, the guard of the building used to sit with his dog. One night, at around 3 am I was woken up by the guard’s dog’s manic barking. I was just thinking to myself why this dog is barking like mad and why isn’t the guard doing anything about it, when all of a sudden, the dog went quiet. My room became a bit extra chilly almost immediately and I

Haunted by a Dark Spirit

04 June 2021 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

Let me be the first to say this is going to be a long post. I wrote it as a means to, I suppose cope with all that was happening at the time, and while it is the high-lights of the insanity that happened. I think that I was genuinely being hunted or… haunted by something evil. Even worse, I wasn’t alone in witnessing this thing’s work. Let me know what you think. I was twenty-one years old when my grandmother who raised me, died of cancer. Her death was an extremely emotional, and mental toll that forced me away from college, and made me return home to the house she and my grandfather built. It wasn’t ever finished, a three-bedroom two-bath home surrounded by the red clay of the
