  1. I’M NOT SURE WHICH RAILROAD TRACKS THE STORY IS TALKING ABOUT BUT WHAT I DO KNOW IS THAT THE KEARNEY PARK IS HAUNTED. MY SISTER TOLD ME HER STORY BACK IN 1988 JULY. IT WAS HER AND HER BOYFRIEND HEAD TO THE PARK AND IT MUST HAVE BEEN AROUND 8:30 P.M. AS IT WAS DARK AND SHE SAID, SHE HEARD THE TRUCK MOVING AS THOUGH PEOPLE WERE JUMPING ON THE TAILGATE. HER AND HER BOYFRIEND GOT SO SCARED THEY TURNED AROUND AND THERE WAS NOONE BUT THE TRUCK WAS MOVING. AS SHE PRAYED THE TRUCK SLOWLY STOPPED MOVING AND WHEN SHE STOPPED PRAYING THINKING IT WAS SAFE THE SOUNDS OF WHIPPING CHAINS AND POUNDING SOUNDS AND JUMPING HARD SOUNDS. IT WAS A SCAREY EXPERIENCE THAT SHE STARTED TO PRAY NONSTOP AND EVERYTHING FINALLY STOPPED BUT WHEN SHE TOLD HER BOYFRIEND START UP THE TRUCK THE TRUCK WOULDN’T START THEN SHE CONTINUED PRAYING AND PRAYING LOUD AND THE TRUCK FINALLY STARTED UP AND WE TOOK OFF SO FAST AS WE LEFT THE PARK WE SEEN THESE TWO SKELETAL FIGURES STICKING THEIR THUMBS UP. IT WAS THE SCARIEST EXPERINCE SHE EVER HAD. SO DON’T GO THERE AT NIGHT. ITS NOT A LIE ITS THE REAL.

    • First you say it’s your sister’s story and she told you then you say “we” took off and “we” sen the skeleton’s with their thumbs up. You don’t sound credible Liz,

    • Yes I strongly think it is haunted im 30 now but I remember back around 1996 me and my cousin camped out to save a spot for easter and oh hell no I herd kids laughing and playing like a summers day at water park and the sound was not far it sounded like close around me

  2. In the year of 2004 my bro his girl an i when to the house around 12 at night idk why i guess we wanted to see it at night we sawa light light up in side the went out hear some talking. Like a conversation around. the back we investigated it an didnt see anything we decided to leave as we went over those tracks a verry loud cough broke the silence in the car i was in back driver the cough was besides me an friend (bros girl) heard it right in her ear crazy ill mever forget it NEVER

  3. I believe this is true because my own grandmother worked at this house as a maid. She was very sensitive to ghosts or spirits because as a little girl her great grandparents would come and talk to her after they had passed. Once while walking home she felt someone following her. My grandmother has passed now but my sister gets the same the feelings and emotions as my grandmother had.

  4. My son and I went on a paid tour of this mansion in the daytime. Upon entering Mr. Kearney’s small library with his personal desk, I swear I smelled a man’s musky scent. It was so strong that I asked my son to move away from me to see if it was coming from him. It was not and the smell was so pungant It seemed as if a man was right next to me. I kind of had the feeling he didn’t want me in that space…

    • About two years ago in third grade our class took a field trip to Kearney Mansion we walked by some kind of coat closet or something and there was a hat and a sweater all of a sudden the coat and sweater moved me and my friends screamed.That day was one of the scariest days of my life.So u know i am not lying.

  5. When I was little my parents took us to Kearney park, my brother an I and little sister went for a walk around the house I seen a lite in one of the rooms then I heard music BEAUTIFUL panio music I seen this lady sitting playing the piano she was so Beautiful there was a tall man standing next to her he had is hand on her shoulder and there was a butler walking to them he was caring this silver tray then the all ture at the same time in a VERY slow way she smiled at me but the butler face was so stiff looking that I screamed so loud we all ran to my dad they were a little way from us , I said daddy some one is in the house , well my dad was afraid of ghost he would not go see I will never for get what I seen and this was daylight time she was so Beautiful.

  6. my friends and I back in 1999 used to go every weekend around midnight to hang out drink and to see what would happen it never fails something always did!!
    That park is definitely haunted I wasn’t a strong believer but this freaked me out the most so we stayed till the beer was gone there were 4 car loads the gates are always open
    Since we’ve been there right along with this night so we were ready to leave but then one friend had to use the restroom I told her I am not going in there because a young girl was murdered in that bathroom a few months back and I’ve heard her crying at night but she didn’t believe me so she went alone while the group of us stood outside I kid u not the 16 of us started hearing noises like dogs barking or wolves it was so strange because the noise got louder and it felt like we were surrounded it was so creepy then we all heard the girl crying a few minutes after then here comes Roxanne running and screaming with her pants half way up and we all jumped into the cars and rushed to get out the park but for some reason we couldn’t find the exit ( there is only one way in this park we all know this park very well )) but still went in circles couldn’t find the exit we ended up in the same place we were chilling at!!!!!! So we ran over the grass trying to cut through the back of the kearney mansion but it’s a dead end so we all got off historical saying we’re trapped there no way out let’s leave the cars and hop the fence as we were panicking the noise stopped the barking or howling whatever it was had stopped so we get back in the cars and try it again finally we were able to exit the park my God! ! We never went back ever again ………..its one thing that one person can hear and see evil but for all of us to hear and witness at same time hell no never going back

  7. my father told me that him and his freinds wer at thepark at night time very late once drinking, as they wer leeving the park driving back home they seen a lady in white in the middle of the street they said she just apeared infront of ther car they drove out the way as fast as they could bt they didnt stop,turning around sudenly after my father looks back and sees the lady still in the middle of the road after that they drove away and never seen that lady ever again.my dad wanted to go back bt everyone else was too scared.

  8. I visited the park and took a tour of the mansion. There were two tour guides, an older lady and a young woman in her 20’s. As we were touring, I asked the older lady if the stories were true about the mansion being haunted. She flatly refused to confirm anything, saying that it was all bunk. She almost looked angry. We continued the tour and I lagged behind. Once we were far enough out of ear-shot, the younger tour guide whisperer in my ear. She told me that she did not like being left alone in the house. She told me that she had felt something evil in the basement of the house and there was definitely something there when she was bringing up some items from the basement. Whether or not she was pulling my leg, I felt that she was being completely honest. It added to the tour.
