  1. I visited the house in 1993 on my honeymoon. When I walked upstairs and stopped at the first bedroom, I felt an overwhelming dizziness and shortness of breath, and a cold fear raced through my body. I had to leave right away. I knew that it was a presence I felt. No question. Every once in a while I will think of it and do an internet search to see if there is anything on it being haunted. Finally I see this website after 25 years. Yes, I definitely did feel that presence. I can’t say whether it was friendly or not, but it definitely wanted me to know it was there.
