    I live in this haunted house. The piano plays by itself. I see and smell cigar smoke, it smells of cherry’s. I have dolls’s that move and play tricks on me. I see imagines of spirits flowing up and down my up stairs hall. Guest have been pushed down the front stair case. The basement is very scary, I refuse to go down to the basement, been locked in for over 6 hours until the basement door magically opened on it’s on. This house is extremely haunted and active.
