      • A freind of mine was walking on Linden st. Late one night and saw a young boy standing in the yard..he said to the boy ‘isn’t a little tolate for you to be out?’ The boy didn’t respond..when my freind looked back the boy was gone..

    1. I visited this house recently and its filled with spirits of all kinds. We had smells, breathing in my ear, steps up the stairs, lights on n off and stomach aches. So much more. Too bad its being rented out now.
