  1. Back in ghe 1960’s my father attended in this house to service an appliance. An occupant of the home told him one night he was awoken by a slap to his face…and no one was there! My father noriced some big old wooden doors were set outside the house that were free to take. He installed them in our home in Thisteltown. Next thing we knew, we had paranormal activity in our home…footsteps upstairs with no one there, a picture falling off the wall but nail in wall still intact, orbs on the walls, weird stuff. Our house was sold then we found it had burned to the ground with no one home in 1980 or so.
