  1. When I was little I was visiting the Hearthstone house on a field trip and I remember I got behind of my class who was going downstairs because I was looking at an upstairs bedroom because I noticed something by the curtains and I got the chills. I got a really cold feeling in my stomach and ran down to catch up, it felt like someone was up there watching me.

  2. I walked by today with a friend. When we began talking about the house being haunted, we saw the curtain of one of the windows move. Might have been someone inside, but we didn’t see anyone.
