  1. I lived there from 2005 until 2012…and yes there are at least 2 women, 2 men, 3 children and a cat ghost that I myself witnessed. At first i was scared, but then i got used to it. They were not malicious, just curious, and sometimes a bit of a pain in the ass with electrical working and waking me up in the nighttime. I can say that I was woken up at 3 am 5 out of 7 days a week the whole time I lived there, either by excessive stomping by the men up and down the stairs, or by the women or children whispering in my ear… Again…more of a pain in the asp since I had to work the next day

  2. I spent the night with a friend who lived there when i was a child. I did not sleep most of the night because of the constant touching and tugging on my pj’s and blankets. I was someone new in the home and they were just curious. I also have had an experience as an adult at the cemetery down the road. I visited in the early spring in the dark when the grass is just crunchy and frosty at night. The gate was shut, so i asked out loud if we could enter. I immediately got an absolute feeling of anger and violence. It hit me like a shockwave. So i did not enter, but i walked about 15 steps down the fence line. I could hear my footsteps in the crunchy frosty grass. I also heard footfalls on the other side of the fence, following me in the crunchy frosty grass. I stopped dead in my tracks after that, and i listened as the footsteps went right past me and continued on down the fence. I almost felt as it was a soldier on century duty protecting the cemetery that night that i encountered.

  3. They are tearing this place down now. Its a disgrace they are tearing it down the owners blew all their money buying nearby land and tearing out the trees there. They are building a new house where the stage coach is currently.
