Haunting at 824 Sweetbriar

05 May 2017 | Audible Activity, Haunted houses, Poltergeist, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

This all started back in the summer of 1965. It was a hot August day. My oldest brother and I were home and were about to make some lunch. We started making lunch and about 20 minutes pass before we heard a knock on the front door. My brother said, “Go see who that is.” So I go and open the door – but no one was there. I closed it and walked back telling him no one was there. So he just said, “OK“, and he continued to make sandwiches while I made the soup. Tomato soup to be exact. Some time went by when again, we heard a knock at the front door. Again, he asked me to go see who it was. So, I go to see

The White Skeletal Entity

04 May 2017 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

I was about six years old and my parents had just moved us into a new house. From the first visit I never felt comfortable in that house and still, 15 years later I hate being there alone. The first couple of months after moving in we had a few incidents, keys would go missing, electricity would cut, creeks, and bangs on the walls but my parents reassured me that it was just because it was a new house and we weren’t used to its personality yet. One night I was woken by a feeling of being really cold. I sat up and opened my eyes, and there was a figure standing in my doorway. The only way I can describe it is that it was like death, but all

Am I Haunted?

01 May 2017 | Audible Activity, Haunted houses, Poltergeist, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

My story begins when I was eight years old and my mother was cleaning the back half of the house. As she was coming to the front, I heard her tell my brother to shut the door if he was going to use the restroom and then she walked on like nothing happened. She reached the front room and stopped dead in her tracks and said to my brother who was there with me “How did you get out here so fast.” I asked “Who were you talking to mom?” and she said “I was talking to your brother.” I now think that my mother saw my brothers’ doppleganger. When I was twelve, we moved to a new house. The first night there, we had to call the police department

The Phantom Knocker

27 April 2017 | Audible Activity, Haunted houses, Poltergeist, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

Since February I have been hearing knocks all around my house. It started one night at around 3am. I was having a tough time falling asleep so I went downstairs to watch TV. I’m sitting on the couch watching infomercials, when I heard a male voice call me from my room. I go to my room and asked my husband what he needed but he was fast asleep. A few weeks later, I heard knocks under the house, but I dismissed it as neighborhood cats under the house. That happens all the time. I went to bed and thought nothing of it until I heard three really loud bangs on my front door at around 3am in the morning. I went to get a bat and see who was at

The Friendly Ghost Who Haunts My Dreams

25 April 2017 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

We moved into a bigger house recently where I have been having some strange experiences. These are not frightening, or creepy, but do interest me. I was sleeping one night, having a bad dream, I woke up out of nowhere. I was laid on my left side facing my room and as I turned over to go back to sleep on my right side, I looked through my bedroom door and saw a dark male shadow figure. I did a double-take but when I looked back it was obviously gone. It didn’t feel threatening nor did it frighten or startle me. In fact, I just rolled over and went back to sleep peacefully. I believe this spirit has been watching over me and he could have even pulled me out

Crouching Ghost, Hidden Motive: A True Tale of the Paranormal

24 April 2017 | Haunted houses, Shadow people, Your True Encounters

When I was twelve years old, my family lived in an old house in Texas. It was a four-bedroom house. I shared my room with my baby sister and my brother and parents had their own rooms. The last room was used as an office. Every night when everyone went to sleep they would close their doors except for my room. I don’t know why… I just didn’t like my door closed. We had an extremely long dark hallway. One night, when I was the only one awake, I was watching TV as usual when I saw a tall male figure in the corner of my eye peek into my room and when I turned to look he would back up and hide. For some reason, I didn’t really feel

The Witches Prison

21 April 2017 | Ghosts in the news, Haunted houses, Your True Encounters

This month saw the placing on the local real estate market of a small property in St. Osyth, Essex. That anyone would want to live there is, I think, unlikely but it may make for a wonderful paranormal business of some type and be an interesting investment as a result. The house is nicknamed ‘The Cage” and it has been featured in several television paranormal investigations. For what looks like a small village house was actually a mediaeval prison and one of its more famous ‘residents’ was Ursula Kemp, hung as a witch in 1582. The house was used as a prison up until 1908. Poor Ursula Kemp, like many older and lonely ladies of her time, kept a cat for company and did things like minding children, making herbal

Making The Rounds….

10 April 2017 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

I was raised by my mom and step-father, who was, in every way, my Dad. He always referred to me as his daughter and I loved him more than anything growing up. He was part of the Sheriff’s Department based in a major city in the state we lived in. He was raised during the depression, a first generation born in the US Italian. He was one of the smartest, kindest, most gentle men I’ve ever met. In 25 years of being a police officer, he only drew his gun a handful of times, and never shot anyone. He was forced to retire in 1985 due to a heart condition and developed emphysema several years later. He had his first heart attack when I was 13, and the second when

GrandMa Came Back

06 April 2017 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

When I was a child, my family and I lived in a very old house, which my grandfather had built on his own. It was so old that we sometimes saw cockroaches in the kitchen. In the kitchen I used to wash the dishes together with my grandma. But one day my grandmother suddenly felt very weak and she died. We were very sad. I can remember the funeral because, even though I was very young, it was my first experience where any of my relatives had died. Time passed. One day I was washing dishes in the kitchen. It was a very hot and stuffy day. Then I felt something behind me. I thought it was my mother, so I looked back. There was no one there except this

There is Something Dark and Nasty in my House!

30 March 2017 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

Since my grandad died in 2003, I seemed to have attracted “something”. The week he died, I felt his hand grasp mine – I ran outside screaming, something I regret. A few years later,I moved into the flat above our shop, I could never ever sleep when I was there and would often get pushed in the small of my back-mum. Dad told me that the old lady who had the flat before me had died in there, but only AFTER I’d moved out. The most recent episode has been in the house that I’ve just moved out of. I was there for just over a year. Things really started to happen after Halloween, which happens to be my favorite times of the year so was lots of decorations etc!

A Crowded House

28 March 2017 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

It’s been a while, and I’d love to share the story of the house I grew up in on Long Island at 26 Crescent Beach Dr. I was very young at the time, however I have vivid memories of the events in the house which took place in my early childhood that not only affected myself, but my mother, uncle, and 4 aunts who lived there. They can all corroborate their own experiences and details as there is no real rhyme or reason to the incidents that took place over the years. I’ll try to cover them as briefly as possible, but there are a lot of instances. A little background; I was raised in my grandfather’s house in Huntington, NY. In that house lived my Uncle, my mother who

A House of Horrors in California

21 March 2017 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

I have dealt with “things that go bump in the night” most my life, making we always wonder if I was a bit of a strange child, but I never thought I would end up living day to day with an entity. It can be just as spooky and unnerving as all the movies you have seen, but it can also be very stressful. You just have to keep laughing and get through it. Easy to say now, years later. We moved into a huge house not far from San Francisco just before Christmas, 1986. I lived there alone with three children while their father commuted, coming home on the weekends. The first night was filled with the new house exploration, the usual moving and settling in activities, keeping me

The Giant Graveyard Orb

15 March 2017 | Creepy places, Haunted houses, Haunted items, Your Stories

My brother and my daughter, decided to have a weekend away with me in a village where we stayed in a two-hundred-year-old inn, while there, we saw a notice board with a ghost walk advertised on it, we thought it would be a bit of fun, and agreed to go on it. When we turned up at the allotted time at the meeting place, which was in front of the old disused graveyard, we were surprised that no one else was there, I asked a young girl passing by if she knew anything about it, she told us it was only on a Friday night that the event took place, and this was Saturday evening, disappointed that we had missed it, we decided to go and have a couple of

I Share my Bed with a Ghostly Couple

06 March 2017 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

According to the Birmingham Mail, a pensioner living at Hamilton Court, Cotteridge, shares his double bed with a ghostly couple. His solution to this problem is to look for a larger bed! He believes that the couple – a domineering wife and hen-pecked husband – lived there before him and have never left despite passing over. He is OK says the pensioner but the wife has a sharp tongue on her and causes problems like ringing the doorbell, switching the lights on and off, and breaking his video player. He says that the couple left him for one short peaceful period but announced their return saying ‘we are back!’. The biggest problem, he says, is that they share the bad with him – one either side of him and often

Zeb – The Angry Ghost

27 February 2017 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

When I was eight, my father retired from the military. We moved to North Carolina to be close to my mothers family. My mom found a 3 bedroom home 1/4 mile from my grandparents. My two sisters and I shared a room. It was huge! Enough room for our full size bed, a twin size bed, 4 dressers with a space in between you could have put two more full size beds and still had room. The first night there I woke up in the middle if the night. I could feel someone staring at me. And it definitely wasn’t in a nice way. I rolled over towards the door and saw an old man in a wheelchair. He looked furious. He was pointing at me and mouthing something but
