  1. My family and I spent a lot of time in this house in the early 90s when it was for sale . There is definitely a ghost present ( a good ghost) with a sense of humor. Ringing the doorbell and turning on the radio

  2. I celebrated my brothers birthday here in 2018 and we didn’t know it was haunted until the trip ended. We went with a group of 15 friends and stayed for about 5 days. While I was there I had horrible graphic nightmares that made me anxious the entire visit. The day we left I ran inside to use the bathroom alone before we left and used the restroom in the furthest corner (i don’t know why), but I felt like I couldn’t get outside fast enough. Fast forward to when I returned home. The first night I slept I felt that anxious feeling again, and had the worst nightmare ever. In my dream I woke up in my room and thought it was real and heard the voice of a woman telling me not to look at faces no matter what. In my dream I would’t even look in the mirror because I was terrified. I heard a knock on my door, and when I opened it felt a bad spirit enter my body through my mouth. I couldn’t breathe or move, I was paralyzed. When I finally woke up I couldn’t move. The next morning I told my mom about it and she told me to pray. I leave and come back to hear her on the phone with my brother and she calls me over and says that my brother had a similar dream! He and I spoke about it and it was so bizarre that our dreams were so similar. In the following days, someone posted an article of the Young house being haunted and then it all made sense. Very crazy! Sorry for the typos, too lazy to fix.

  3. My parents lived in the house behind the Young Mansion in the 80’s. My mother witnessed all kinds of activity at that house. Shadow figures, lights flickering when no one was home. My parents also spoke with the owners who confirmed the house was haunted by a poltergeist. They claimed it was friendly.
