Hey Everyone,

I'm the new guy to the Forum, and this is my first post, so bear with me here!  I will admit right here, and now, that I'm not much for buying into the paranormal thing, and so on!  Kinda more of a skeptic till proven otherwise (and it takes some pretty good convincing to prove me otherwise), but I got one for ya!   I am a long distance truck driver, and spend a lot of time back east, where I kind of developed an interest in older houses with cool architecture, as opposed to the newer, more cookie cutter houses that are more prevalent in my area out here in Southern California!  So, much to my wife protesting, when I came across an turn of the century Craftsman "Cockpit " Bungalow, I had to go with it!

Now, this was our first home, and originally I had the mindset of gutting it out, and starting over, but after playing around with the Historical Society, they said I should look into some history about the place, so I did just that!  Turns out, it was built by the first Mayor of our town, and the first member of the Fire Dept!  I thought that was actually pretty cool, so I dug a bit deeper. and wanted to know what came of the orgional owners, so I started trying to track down death certificates, and so on, to backtrack the paper trail, and interestingly enough, as our home was originally in the middle of a field, out in the middle of no where, It was customary upon request of the owners of the home, that they may be buried on site, by whatever means they see fit within reason according to law!  So, being able to find record of approximately when they died, but not where both the owner, or his wife were laid to rest, I began to grow more curious into this whole thing! 

And now were getting to the good part!  Oddly enough, I honestly have two concrete casings in my root seller.  One is 5' x 3', and directly across is another 6' x 3'!  I used to kid around a bit hat those were the tombs of the owners, until one day while the City was doing some road work, and vibrated the ground enough to cause a cracked piece of concrete to fall off of one, and sure enough, their is a wooden structure behind the concrete encasement!  I called the City out to get their take on this one, and was told that since records indicate that they have most likely been their for approximately 90 years, that unless we wanted to pay to have them removed, and proper burial, that they could do little more on the situation!  So, we now have one of the only houses I know of in our area that was never owned by any criminal types, but has two dead bodies in the basement! :-D

And yup!  both my wife, and I have both seen a very clear apparition of a woman only in the dark that kind of gives off a faint glow, wearing a  white flowing nightgown appearing through the seller door, and walks to the rest room, before vanishing into thin air!  Doesn't seem to see, or hear anything, or know anyone is their.  My guess is kind of like a human fingerprint in time played out over, and over.  It usually happens in spurts where sometimes it might happen a couple of nights in a row, and then nothing for months!  The only other thing that is beyond me is that any time we do anything to the house, from minor restoration, projects, to even repainting the walls, all of the lights in the house will flicker continuously for about a month, blowing all of the light bulbs! even if they are all new!  And  this happens every time, regardless of having fully replaced, and updated all of the wiring to insulated 3 wire romax, and updating the old 70 amp panal, to a brand new 250 amp panal, and then after blowing all of the light bulbs the day after, we had the contractor go through the entire system from top to bottom with no explanation!  We replace all of the bulbs again this time using the 2 year guaranteed ones, and the next day, all blew again!

I would have never believed it till I had seen it first hand, but rather than fear them, they have done no harm to us, other than maybe protest our choice in paint colors, and having contractors making a bunch of noise, to which I can kinda understand!  I wouldn't want someone doing major construction above my eternal resting place either!  So, like I started to say before getting sidetracked, instead of fearing them, we see them more as kinda like guardians looking over us, which is cool with me!  I need a few more of those on my side anyhow!

So just for what its worth, thats my all true, and verified Haunted House Story!

Take it easy!

I think this will be an interesting topic of discussion.I look forward to hearing more stories.I only wish there was hard empirical data to support the claims,obviously videotape or solid communication would be the best(not evp) but i would even be more interested is learning the science behind any of the investigations.What can scientists actually do to collect data on this phenomena?Obviously this isnt Hollywood or the "Entity" where an attempt at isolating an actual spirit was attempted(great movie for any who hasnt seen it,still holds up today against any ghost movie in my opinion)Have a nice weelend all.Carter

Just thought I'd share my "ghost" story. Shortly after we bought our house my husband decided to completely remodel the upper story; it's a 1 1/2 story bungalow. He came upon a handful of marbles in one of the walls. I took them for myself and put them in a small vase. Right after that we all started getting the feeling that something was watching us whenever we went upstairs and we all got the same impression- that it was a young boy, although none of us had actually seen him. Once when my husband was working upstairs, the little boy poked him really hard on the back. I decided to put the marbles back where they were found and my husband dry walled them up. After that none of us really got any bad feelings when we went upstairs, although once and awhile we do "feel" him and every now and then we find marbles laying around.

Our house was built in 1927. I've often thought about researching the history of the house to see if a little boy died here, but I never have. The people that owned the house before us didn't have any children. I do know that somewhere along the line there must have been a fire in the house; the timber in the rafters is black and charred.

I recently had another experience in my house

I woke up to a creaking sound I have heard before, there is a spot in the living room in front of the tv, if you stand there the floor it will buckle a little and creak

Well I heard this familiar sound around 130am and everyone was asleep, I thought some perp might have broken in and went in there with my Taurus PT-92 AF 9 mm

Nothing there...I went into the kitchen and it was freezing cold...no windows were open, all the upper cabinets in the kitchen were wide open, after I closed them all I went back into the bedroom and when I turned the light off I heard something above me, when I clicked the light on from my bed the ceiling fans was spinning real fast, faster than when it worked, yes it has not worked in quite some time now......twilight zone music echoing in background

Our house is not that old

When I moved in it was only 2-4 years old when I bought it, and I have lived in it for 10 years now

It happens every once in a while, I think it just wants to let us know it is around

Even the kids have heard and seen things but they are not scared, they say they feel it just wants attention

I wouldn't be surprised if my house is haunted.
Though we're right in the middle of town now, there used to be nothing out here by fields and train tracks. This house is the oldest house in the area, and there's a reason for that.
It was a brothel for all the railway workers and millworkers to come and "relax" after work. Now, this might not be too weird, except for one thing: It was owned by the Ku Klux Klan. Because of the sway they used to hold here (Oregon was pretty much run by Confederate sympathisers during the Civil War) they could have shut it down instantly, so they took advantage of that and taxed it.
During the time this house was a brothel, numerous murders were committed here and in the surrounding area. The motivations were varied...Some of the murders were just psycho pervs killing the whores, some were racially motivated and executed by the KKK, and some were criminal in nature (not paying back debts, etc.)
Some weird stuff goes on in my house, and though most of the strange things can be explained away easily if looked at as solitary incidents,, the massive number of bizarre experiences I, and my family, have had here is just too high to be entirely coincidental.

The house I grew up in was built by my parents and was also one of the first in the area. Legend has it that the area was once an Indian burial ground, although I don't know how true that is. As far as I know, no artifacts or anything were ever found, and it would be awfully disrespectful to build homes on sacred ground. There was a park in back of my house, and I can say that I have heard and felt weird stuff there, and once I saw some kind of ghost/spirit. I was with a friend at the time and she also saw it.

I live in Thailand and find that the thai people as a general rule very much believe in the presense of ghosts. At my apartment my girlfriend does not like to stay alone for fear of ghosts and is convinced that any creaking noise is a spirit in the house. Are there any specifics trademarks that a spirit is in your house?

Well, just before we got married, the wife and I moved to a new location. This one is another old farmhouse on about two acres of yard, surrounded by forest and farmland.

When we moved here, the entire area was positively crawling with spirit activity! Unfortunately, due to the nature of my individual abilities and energies, I drove off or outright destroyed practically all of it. However, of late, things have been returning. We now have a regular Shadow who visits our yard, and there are orbs around our home at night again. At one point an entity even tried to gain a foothold here. It got a bit too insistent, and was sent packing quickly.

So now I look forward to seeing what comes around.

My elementry school was built in the twentys or thirtys. It was originaly a private school for the military base kids. We always had strange things going on. Lights would go out, fire alarms would go off, the lockdown bell would sound, doors that were open two seconds ago would be locked. The fishtank even burst once. Mostly it happend after school. One of the teachers there was my mom's friend and she would talk about how after hours she would hear someone slaming doors and lightbulbs exploding for no reson. The school is closed now, but only because they built a new one.

But in my town, espacaily on the base, it isn't very hard to find haunted houses. Or so I'm told. But it wouldn't suprise me. We have people posted from all over Canada and they all stay in the duplexes for the most part (those are what we call the houses on base).

I just saw somewhere that when people are asked anything regarding the supernatural, the most thing that is commonly believed in, is in the haunted house.

I'm going to move into a new home when my boyf and i get married. how will i know wheter it's haunted or not before we move in?
