Creepy Closet by coco31

When I was 13, I lived in my grandmother's house with my mom and my sister. The house was old (I'm not sure how old), and there was a furnace door across from my room. I came home from school one day and no one was there. I did my homework and laid on my bed to watch t.v. It was around 7 or 7:30, be...

Creepy Jewelry Box Music by Ashley1985

Yesterday, my mother went to the hospital because she has had complications from a surgery she had. I was upset about it and looked at a photograph of my parents after I got off the phone with my family. My father passed away several years ago. As I looked at the photo I thought... I hope he is with...

Dc's History by justin102798

I went to DC during the summer. While there, I went to the air and space museum. I took a picture of the Spirit of Texas and when I looked at the picture, it looked like there was a face in the window. It looked like a man with sandy blond hair and a scratched up face. I still look at the picture to...

Not Quite The Shinning by Johanna

This happened while I was visiting Washington D.C. With my parents for a few days. On our first night there, we checked into our hotel, a Hilton on Connecticut Avenue.

Skeleton Apparition by coco31

In the room me and my sister slept, there was an attic door. I felt very uneasy living in the house and especially uneasy sleepi...

The Touch by BabyBoo

I've written before about how I believe my condo is haunted. The ghost likes to turn water on, turn off and on lights, and in general do things that are never really scary but seem to be a way to say "Hey, I'm here too..." There have been a couple of incidents lately that have been unusual that I th...

The Watch by BabyBoo

My Mom died way too early. She was only 51. It was a very traumatic time for us. It started out with one of the most terrible sounds I know. The phone ringing in the middle of the night. One of my brothers calling to tell me that Mom had a major heart attack and to get home as quick as I can. My ...

Unusual Activity From My Ghost by BabyBoo

We have lived in our condo for over 3 years now and have had what I consider ghostly activity since we moved in. I have contributed a couple of stories about the happenings in my home to this site.

Who Else Lives Here? by BabyBoo
