    Every night all around my
    house outside my windows, in the yard standing watching me I’d a woman and man standing together or they split up and watch me from different directions it’s gotten worse by the day that now I see the shadows of them everywhere trying to enter my home but for some reason they can’t come in….
    I looked around in several different ways to try whi they could be what they want or need if they are evil or harmless I don’t know

    • we spent the night at the Rivercene Mansion and took pictures about 10 years ago. In most of the pictures there is fog or orbs.Id have to dig for the pictures its been awhile. I had a question for the man running the place and walked back to some room where i thought he was and he had many TV screens watching which were showing different areas of the hotel. Gave me the creeps because it looked like he was watching some of the rooms. Its a really cool place

      • Hello Debbie,
        The Mansion has been under new ownership for 5 yrs. now and is being restored. I happen to be the owner and would love to see your pictures.
