Remember The Alamo: The Lingering Ghost

27 December 2016 | Haunted locations, Your Stories

During my last visit to the Alamo I saw a young man striding toward me looking like he knew where he was going. I watched him walk across the ruin and I thought he was a reenactor. He was over six feet, bearded and his hair was dark brown, slightly curling, and loose to his collar. He was dressed in very authentic-looking period costume. His rust-colored trousers were tucked into black, high boots that showed stirrup wear. He wore a wide belt of plain dark brown leather with a simple brass buckle. But it was his shirt that impressed me most. It was made of heavy, old-fashioned off-white broadcloth. It had a pointed collar and a placket in front, and the ties at the top of the placket were undone.

There is Something In Our House

23 December 2016 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

We had moved into our house a few months ago, we got a good deal on a large house and decided to go for it. We spent the first two months without any kind of incident. The first incident however took place in my bedroom with my son, and we both saw something like a white ball floating in the middle of room. This has happened several times now. Then a couple of months ago, things started to change for the worst. My daughter falls asleep with the TV on, but I always set the timer so it would cut itself off. I would get up around 1am and her TV would still be on. It was around this same time in October 2006, that a neighbor of mine had

The Boy in the Mirror

21 December 2016 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

When I was a kid, we lived in a large house in Arkansas. The house was reportedly one of the oldest in our small town. I would spend a lot of time by myself at home, and would often see the spirit of a little boy. He was younger than me and I saw him almost on a weekly basis. He was as clear as day to me. I would try to talk to him—but he would ignore me. He looked wet and cold. After a year or so, he stopped appearing and I got on with my life. I started to think he was just an imaginary friend—I’d never spoken to him so it was highly likely that he was just a figment of my imagination. However later I

The Yellow Ghost That Spoke To Us

20 December 2016 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

Ever since I met my husband, I would spend a lot of time at his parents’ house and even spent the night there before we were married. That’s when I realized that this house, only a few years old was haunted. There have been many incidents that have taken place there. For example, I would wake up many nights to whispers in my ear and even felt someone pulling at my hair as I lay in bed one night. Sometimes I would feel the bed jerk or even feel like a breeze roll over the bed when the air would be off and no fans were on or even a breeze outside. A couple of years ago, we had to move in to their place to take care of my

The Reaper Came To Visit

19 December 2016 | Shadow people, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

This incident took place several years ago, at our old house in Florida. It was a very stormy night, and I was scared. I went to my parents’ bedroom and asked if I could get in with them at around midnight. My Dad moved over and I got in. I started to sleep a little better, but about three hours later, I awoke suddenly, as I tend to be a sporadic kind of sleeper. When I awoke, the scariest thing was in front of me. An outline of what I can only say looked like the reaper was about six or seven feet away from me. It stood there, glaring, for about a minute. It didn’t talk, it just stared at me, and I hid under my parents covers. I

The Blue Orb From The War of Independence

15 December 2016 | Ghost hunting, Haunted locations, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

Last year, I went with parents to King of Prussia, Pennsylvania. I had never been there before, and I was excited to go. That area is known for having a bloody history, with a lot of battles from the war of Independence. For something to do we all decided to do a ghost tour. The tour guide began his story-telling. We walked on a little bit, and then we came upon an eerie looking graveyard that was next to a church. We were walking past the fence, and it was then that I noticed a blue circle hovering in front of one of the church windows. I stopped to take a look, thinking that it was a light coming from inside of the church. I was confused, because I instantly

Grandpa James and the Haunted Vase

14 December 2016 | Haunted items, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

Today’s encounter is one that I really like….. Imagine being left such a gift? I was fifteen years old when this incident took place. A couple of years before my grandfather had passed away. He had lived with us for as long as I can remember, and took care of our family while my mom worked full time. He had a very strong presence, was psychic and had always believed in ghosts. When he passed over to the other side, my mom moved us to live with my grandma and uncle until she could find steady work. That’s when we noticed some strange occurrences taking place. It was just small things to begin with like ornaments that were slightly re-arranged when we weren’t looking, lights going on and off by

Ouija Board Hell After Trying to Contact Granddad

12 December 2016 | ouiji boards, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

My Grandfather passed away when I was twelve and I had to move into his old room – the one where he had passed. A few months later, I had a friend sleep over and we thought it might be fun to play with a witch board. So we lit some candles and decided to see if we could contact my Grandfather. Nothing happened at first and we weren’t really taking it too seriously. We stopped touching the board and we blew out all of the candles only to have them all re-light by themselves. The glass continued to move around violently across the board on its own… my friend lost it and asked to go home and she did. Later, I resumed playing with the board myself. My TV

A Possession in Virginia

09 December 2016 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

This story took place twenty-six years ago. My dad told me about this incident and I think it’s probably one of the scariest things I’ve ever heard. My father does not have much of a sense of humor, so I’m pretty sure he didn’t fabricate any part of it. When my mom was pregnant with me we lived in a rural part of Virginia. My mom arrived home after giving birth to me but her health began to worsen with time and it made my dad worried. He consulted a lot of doctors who deemed it was normal because my mom was anemic. They prescribed a lot of medicines but nothing seemed to work. One early morning dad got up to go to the bathroom. When he was coming back

The Black Eyed Boy Wal Mart Experience

08 December 2016 | Black Eyed Kids, Your Stories

They say you can get anything at Wal-Mart…… Note this story took place in the 1970’s – long before the current wave of stories got going. I was around twelve when this incident took place. I didn’t know anything about Black Eyed kids until a few years ago when I started reading reports on the internet about these strange incidents. My story is a little different to those other accounts. I was sitting in my Moms car waiting for my mom to return. She was inside Walmart and I had elected to wait in the car with my book. A young boy had walked past the car a few times—and I hadn’t really taken that much notice of him. The fourth or fifth time the boy went past I think

The Ghostly Girl Who wanted To Play

07 December 2016 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

This story took place in London, Ontario about twenty years ago. I was staying with my parents at a close family friends’ house. Our vacation was going well until one night I was woken up by something tapping on my shoulder. Fast taps in rhythm. I tend to be a deep sleeper, but these taps woke me straight up. I turned over and switched on the light. Nothing was there. I turned the light off and lay on my back. About a minute later the taps started again. But faster than before. I turned the light on again and could see nothing. I was getting scared by this point and didn’t want to turn the light off. Eventually I settled down and turned it off and the tapping started again.

Ghost Hunting at Elgin State Hospital Cemetery

05 December 2016 | Ghost hunting, Haunted locations, Shadow people, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

This is the story of a ghost hunting trip to the old abandoned Elgin Mental hospital cemetery. I first heard about it online, where I read stories of the former grounds keeper hearing chilling sounds and heard it said that there may be three bodies in every grave. For over 100 years, the hospital operated as the Illinois State Institution for the insane. The unwanted were sent there to die and many horrific experiments were performed during the early years of treating mental diseases. Over 1000 people are said to be buried in the cemetery and it has a long held reputation as being haunted. We initially had a hard time finding the place and we were about to give up when suddenly, we found it. Immediately, we could feel
