Old Holmbo Residence

You are here Home  > Miscellaneous >  Old Holmbo Residence

Former owner Nicolai Holmbo hung himself in the front room of the house in 1904, and locals reported sighting his apparition staring down into the street late at night. Screams and moans came out of the building, and strange flashing lights moved around the house, despite the fact that it had been abandoned for decades.
