The Night Shift Security Guard

11 July 2019 | Haunted locations, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

The Native business I work for is also next to a Native cemetery. When I close the buildings and lock up. I hear whispers and knocks. When I first started ,the other security guards mentioned that it’s a common thing. How can people become so cool with stuff like this? I understand the situation and how you don’t show fear. But, I’m making this post now and I’m sitting here at work looking at my cameras seeing lights that are on that were off when I went and checked the whole building for anybody or anything (the building has a security system that was working). And there are two buildings I watch. Out of the 2, the one closest to the cemetery has the most activity.   Originally submitted by

A Trip to Wales

10 July 2019 | Haunted houses, Haunted locations, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

About 25-years ago, I and a few friends went to stay for a week at the small Welsh estate of a work friend. He had inherited a small parcel of land and a 16th Century house on the coast in mid Wales and rented it out to help keep it maintained. As it turned out, the house was very haunted. On arrival, we decided which bedrooms each family would use. We chose the master suite, my parents another room and some friends yet another leaving one bedroom free. The entry hall was quite grand, wood paneled, very gloomy with a staircase that came down from both sides to a central balcony and from there, to the ground floor. Later, we were to discover a Priest hole in the floor of

A Haunted Toy?

09 July 2019 | Haunted items, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

I have a 15 month old boy named Zeth (yes with a Z) and since his birth, now and then, interesting things have happened. When he was a few months old, he would look at the corner of the ceiling smiling and laughing at nothing; He would do it at his daycare too. About 3-months ago, my wife was home with him and he fell asleep on the floor by her side. She started taking pictures of him sleeping and in one a ball of light is next to him. It was in the middle of a sunny day and only that one photo. So fast forward to last Sunday and my wife had left to go shopping in the morning while I stayed with Zeth. We were in the

Hey Come Here!

04 July 2019 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

About 13 years ago my sister lived in a house in a not so great neighborhood. You came in through the kitchen, then the dining room and turned left into the living room. Behind the living room was a hall to the main bathroom and all the bedrooms. The couch was positioned with its back to the hallway. At the end of the hall was a bedroom that always creeped us out. We didn’t ever go in there or in the half bath that was inside it. She mostly has boxes in there. Well, my nieces’ nursery was right beside that room and we always had weird stuff happen in there. One time my sister was asleep and heard a voice scream one of my nieces’ names in her ear.

The Hooded Demon

02 July 2019 | Demons, Haunted houses, Old hag, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

It was 3am. I was laying in bed. My room was dark and the only light came from the mobile phone in my hands. Then, my phone’s battery died and I couldn’t see an inch in front of my face. I placed my phone on my pillow and laid down staring into the darkness. Slowly, my eyes adjusted to the darkness. It was at this point that I realised I wasn’t alone. There, standing beside my bed, was a dark figure wearing a hooded cloak. At this point in time I had a friend staying at my place so when I say this dark figure, I instantly laughed thinking I was the victim of a practical joke. Suddenly, the figure lunged at me hitting me in the chest. I was

Faith and Fireflies

28 June 2019 | Haunted locations, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

I wanted to share something original; something that I’ve shared with close friends, but have never written down, until now. With that being said, this piece is written with dedication to my best friend, Hope, who fought valiantly against cancer, but succumbed to it in 2015. This is a story I shared with her, which helped strengthened her faith and belief in God. Inevitably, it was through this story that she gave her life to Christ a month before her death. FAITH AND FIREFLIES I worked for the Department of Natural Resources the Summer after my freshman year of college. My love for nature and the Summer sun found me garbed in hunter green, selling daily and annual passes to vacationers and residents, alike, looking to enjoy a picnic or weekend

The Grandmother’s Last Visit

27 June 2019 | Your Stories, Your True Encounters

This is in short my ex-wife’s story and she swears by it. Her grandmother was from China and they moved to Vietnam right after the US left Vietnam. Her grandmother live to be over a hundred years old and she said that after her grandmother died, she visited all of her relatives. My wife was also visited by her to and supposedly her grandmother kind of floated into the room and over a my wife. She was so scared. All she saw was the feet of her grandmother and the dress she was buried in.  I don’t understand why? Hearing the stories of her grandmother is very interesting to me. Supposedly she was so beautiful that a hundred Vietnamese men would try to knock or throw rock rocks at her

The Demons of 11e Hunter’s Crescent

26 June 2019 | Demons, Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

I was born in November 1986 in Perth, Scotland. I spent my first four years living with my Mum and Dad in a top floor flat of a block of six. The housing estate we lived in was called Fairfield and was just a little run down and rough around the edges, but it was home. From the time I was born my maternal grandmother, who had The Gift, always insisted that I also had it. All throughout my life I have had visions of things that have passed and things that are still to happen. This gift has gotten stronger since my grandmother passed away a couple of years ago. This story, however, centers on my first four years living in 11e Hunter’s Crescent. This flat was haunted, to

Recurring Nightmare

24 June 2019 | Your Stories, Your True Encounters

So to set this story is simple. I’m 28 years old a truck driver and have some problems sleeping sometimes. But anyway, moving on, I have this weird reoccurring nightmare and while it’s not all the time it usually comes in 1-2 week spurts. My dad passed back in 2007, which is a part of this story, but it actually begins in 2013. I left and went to Colorado to get my cdl (commercial drivers license). This nightmare always starts the same way and feels so real. I wake up and start my morning routine. Wake up, get up, and pull the curtain back over my windshield sit down, light a cigarette and crack a monster. But something catches my eye – it’s my dad sitting in the passenger seat.

The U.S. Hotel

21 June 2019 | Haunted locations, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

The U.S. Hotel on South Juniata Street in Holidaysburg, PA, dates originally to 1835. Adjacent to the western end of the Pennsylvania Canal and the Allegheny Portage Railroad, it was a stopping point for many people traveling west for the majority of the 19th century. It was destroyed by fire in 1871 and rebuilt in 1886, by brewmaster, Engelbert Gromiller. It no longer functions as a hotel but is now a restaurant of some renown. The hotel, like many old buildings of its kind, is purported to be haunted. I had the opportunity to eat here recently and I can tell you the food is superb. Having some extended family in the Alltoona, PA area, we met for brunch and had a great time. Our discussion during brunch, of course,

Unexplained Sightings at RAF Base

20 June 2019 | Your True Encounters

A few weeks ago, I was asked if I had ever seen a ‘ghost’. I’ve never actually put the experience down on paper (so to speak). I spent quite a few years with the Royal Air Force, my first posting was to RAF Buchan, situated in a small village called Boddam, around thirty miles north of Aberdeen. This would have been in the middle of July 1996. My billet was a small room (we didn’t have to share) and it was based at the back of the building (Tiree Block). Being on the top floor I was afforded a fantastic view of the North Sea, bleak in the winter but stunning in summer. To give you a rough idea of the layout of the room, my bed was next to

Demon Intruder?

17 June 2019 | Haunted houses, Your Stories

One afternoon when I was about 10 or 11 years old, my mom and brother had left to run errands and my dad was outside working on our car. My sister and I were playing tag inside of our home. My sister tagged me while I was in the living room and she ran back into our bedroom. As I was walking back to our room where she’d ran, I heard a loud bang on the wall thats between the hallway and kitchen. This wall was not an area that could be accessed easily without moving our huge stove, refrigerator or dutch oven, so I ran our room and slammed the door behind me. I told my sister I thought someone was in the house and we pressed ourselves against

The Stay Over

10 June 2019 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

Back in 1976, when I was 12, we lived in Lismore NSW Australia and my mother went to visit my sister in New Zealand. Returning to Brisbane, she had my two older brothers and myself drive up to Brisbane to meet up and stay at a friend’s place who we have known for 10 years at the time. They had only just moved into this house from across the road two weeks before we arrived. We all went to bed and my brother and myself had to share a double bed in a closed in Verandah that was up against the wall closest to the street with windows behind and beside the bed. Around 2 or 3am for some strange reason, I woke up, and saw a lady around 40

The Mystery of the Union Bleachery Mill

07 June 2019 | Haunted locations, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

Union Bleaching and Finishing Co., the Buncombe Road company long known in Greenville as Union Bleachery, was founded in 1902 by the “New York capitalists,” led by J.B. Duke. It is an old abandoned textile mill located on Old Buncombe Rd. in Greenville, SC that closed back in 2003 because of a mysterious fire that took place then. In 2017, the Abandoned property caught fire again leaving only half of the building. This abandoned mill is known to be one of the most contaminated abandoned ruins in the state of South Carolina. Young adults and teenagers often explore this abandoned property because of its outstanding beautiful views and the sinister history behind the mill. The rumor is that a mysterious light, apparitions or shadowy figures that take human form, and

The Lady in White

06 June 2019 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

This didn’t happen to me. It happened to my grandmother, who lives in Mexico. My grandmother says that one morning, she was awoken very early in the morning by noises in the kitchen. My grandmother checked her alarm clock, the time read 3:30. My grandmother figured it was my aunt who lives with her, my mother’s youngest sister. My aunt used to get up early in the morning to get ready for work. My grandmother called out to her, “Is that you in there Elizabeth?” No response, absolute silence. All the sudden, out of nowhere, my grandma hears their kitchen door close really hard. They had a front door, and an extra door in the kitchen. My grandmother gets up and goes to make sure everything is okay. There is
