  1. My father in law saw an old man in a rocking chair that was on the side of the road rocking his chair late at father in law worked for Mr bentson who was married to the shary family and when they turned to check there was nothing there the old man disappeared .

  2. I have been there in the evening several times and have seen the rocking chair rock back and forth when there is no wind blowing. As we approached it, it suddenly stopped.Regardless, I know that something supernatural has something to do with it moving.We got this eerie feeling as we approached it. You should go and visit,it is peaceful and quiet.I recommend going right before the sun is about to set.

  3. I was driving through there to go to edinburg,,and when I passed where the shary mansion on street, my car was messing up,,my sterring wheel felt like if it didn’t wanna move no more,, so I would press the gas and car didn’t wanna advance,,so I just said a prayer and car started to work..I later found out that area around sharry mancion was haunted including street..
