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

The Unseen Presence In My House

23 February 2017 | Haunted houses, Your True Encounters

I was visiting Reddit this morning and came across this story. I reproduce it here because it sounds very similar to some of the experiences I had growing up… I will start by giving a brief description of the house in which I grew up in and then I will share an experience of my dads. First of all, I could talk about this house forever! Way too much happened in my 18-years of living there to even try and explain in this very short story. As far back as I can remember, the house was always very active, very creepy, and no matter where you walked in that house, you would always feel as though you were been watched. Right from a very early age, I had experienced creepy

Nedamov u Dubé is a small village in the Czech republic known mostly as a place school kids go to camp in the summer. However, over the last few years, it has become famous for an occurrence of a poltergeist with a difference – this poltergeist is an arsonist. It all seems to have started when a house burned down a couple of years ago in the village. The firefighters could establish no cause for the mysterious fire that gutted the building. Things got stranger however when rebuilding began. Over the course of 6 days, the fire fighters were called out to no fewer than 45 fires at the property. According to the construction workers and the local fire fighters, things would simply spontaneously combust including articles of clothing, wooden

The Ghost of the Hanging Student

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

About fifteen years ago, I helped my boyfriend move into his first home. It was a one bedroom flat. It was in a dingy building but it was his first place and we thought it was exciting. As you opened the front door there was a long hallway with a door to your right, the bathroom, further down the hallway another door to your left which lead to the bedroom, and straight ahead at the very end was a doorway to the kitchen/sitting room. There was no door though, just the empty frame. I always felt as though some one was stood in the doorway with their hands on the top of the frame swinging as in a playful way staring at me. I didn’t like the feeling and my

The Haunted House Next Door

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

When I was a child I lived in a rural part of the country. Our house was perfectly fine but the next-door house had a serious of strange events happen that could be called paranormal. During the 1800’s a man had murdered his family in that house. Then he had committed suicide. After that few people had wanted to stay in the house and people always told of “blood running under the crack of the door.” From time to time we would hear noises from next door. Crying, sometimes banging, sometimes tapping. It was nothing extreme but a family moved in and they started redecorating the house. After a few days, the wife of the family who moved in knocked on our door and asked if we knew anything about

Could My House Be Haunted?

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

I’ve lived in the same house in Alaska my whole life. It is a three-story house that is about 30-40 years old. Ever since I was a kid I was constantly terrified in my house sometimes when I’m walking up or down my stairs I get this sudden urge to run. I don’t know why. I always feel as though I am being watched, especially when I am alone, but even when I’m not alone. My father died of cancer a little over a year ago, in my house that I live in but I have yet to have any signs of him lingering in my house but my mom said on the one year anniversary of his death she woke up to him calling her name. Before he passed

The Black Eyed Beckoning Ghost

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

This took place several years ago, when I was staying with a friend of mine, Monica, and her family in Maine. Her parents had a summer place out there and I would go with them quite often. We were in my friend’s bedroom when I saw something walk past the window. This is a second floor bedroom so I was shocked to see something go past the window. I didn’t get much of a look at it—but I know it was completely white—pale even. After that I tried to tell myself I hadn’t seen anything. Monica didn’t seem to be bothered by it so we both spent the afternoon reading and talking together. The next day we were outside and I had forgotten about the bedroom incident. We were in

Great Grandma Is Still Around Our House

31 January 2017 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

I lived with my paternal grandparents most of my childhood. When I was about 5 years old, my grandparents sold their large Victorian-style house to move us all into my great grandmothers tiny shack of a home. My great grandmother was in poor heath and had Alzheimer’s. My “Nanaw”, “Pop”, Uncle Bennie, and I all pitched in to help care for Grandma Grace. About a year later grandma Grace passed away in her sleep in her bedroom. I remember how strange it was that morning when I woke up and looked in her room and she was still asleep as she was usually awake before I was. It was our morning routine that I would wake up and go into her room and sit in the chair beside her bed
