    • I no joke lived right down the road from here my whole life and had no idea about the story but I have had some of my own paranormal stories growing up like one time I saw a bloody man on stilts in clothes from a circus in the 1920’s.

  1. We live in Hastings Ia and there’s this creepy house and we think it’s haunted we saw a girl with a long flowing white dress and she had long black hair covering her face and were scared she’s fallowing us. Help Please!
