Hobo Ghost by boogoosttella124

A year ago I was with my sister and her friends walking down our dirt road when I saw this hobo sitting on the ground with his back against a tree. It's not unusual to see a hobo in our county, but not down our road. So I whispered to my sister,"There's is a hobo over there." She responded, "What ...

Ghost Girl by boogoosttella124

I have a house that was built about five years ago. In the woods there are these mounds. I did some research and found out they are Native American burial grounds. I had a feeling though that one really stood out, one of a Native American princess. I told my sister about it and she didn't believ...

Harding Street by bette31

When I was 16, I was in an accident where I was turning into my boyfriend's house and a lady ran out of the road and hit me while I was in his driveway. Her front bumper was hanging off her car and she totaled mine. After the state trooper came and listened to both of our statements, I ended up gett...

Possible Ghost Attack? by freckle0328

Hey, I'm a bit freaked out about what's been happening at my boyfriend's place, and I'm really confused if my last experience was possibly just my imagination or an actual encounter with a spirit of some sort. First let me start off with a few things that I've heard about that has happened in the ap...

My Sister's Experiences by bette31

These occurrences have taken place at my sister's house over the course of the past 3 years. The house my sister and her family live in was built by her husband's grandfather. At some point, throughout the years, even in their adult lives, every one of his aunts and his uncle has lived in the hou...

Asking To See Others by bette31

lthough this is not a scary story, I need some help. I have always heard that if someone has passed that before you go to sleep at night you can ask God to let you dream of them. There is a reason for me asking help from the contributors of this sight as I have read a lot of posts that some of you ...

A Husbands Last Promise by bette31

I Saw my Mom Who Recently Died by Candiegirl

My mother died about a year and a half ago. Last month I was looking at a picture of her before I went to sleep, I held on to the picture as I slept.

I Saw Someone in my Parent's Room by Candiegirl

When I was a little girl, three years old to be exact, I fell asleep in my parents' room while watching a movie, I awoke some hours later, and if I remember correctly it was about 3 A.M. And the t.v had been turned off, as well as all the lights. Then I thought I heard the door open, thinking it ...

First Encounter With a Little Blue Orb by Pandaotaku

Before I tell you the story, just let me tell you: If you think that ghosts aren't real, please don't post rude comments. No comment will change my mind about what I saw and hear with my own eyes and ears. Call me crazy and stupid, but I will not change my mind. Also, I'm not one to lie to my friend...

Making His Presence Known by Laxe

This "haunting" took place in an apartment that my Mom and Dad were sharing in Hampton, VA. My dad had died back in October 1994 after developing complications after heart bypass surgery. I arrived from Colorado the next day to attend his upcoming funeral. That night, I stayed in a small bedroom in ...

Corner Shadow by LPeezey

Try to bear with me, this is the first time I've really talked about this. The sequencing might be a little messy. Lets see, I've had experiences all through my life. Nothing really that stood out, or terrified me though until within the last few years. The experience that I'm about to describe is b...

Harley the Ghost Cat by Crystal

I'm 16 years old and I live in VA. I had the same cat since I was a baby, his name was Harley. We were really really close and always together when I was home.

Old House Haunting by zack1392

Back again, but this story is different from my auditorium story. When I was around 4 years old I was living in a house which isn't that far from where I live now and isn't far from my high school. It all started by me seeing shadow figures or people in reflections and of course me being 4, it scare...

Haunted Norfolk by BriFischer05

Here are a couple of occurrences that happened to me and my Navy buddies when we were stationed in Norfolk, VA. Three of us shared an apartment off base. It was a two bedroom 1 bath apartment.

Origins of the Forest Elemental by deathcipris

To fully understand this story, please read my first story Elemental of Forest. It was about November 2006 now and I have gained a close friend. Something still intrigued the both of us though; we wanted answers to what was out there. He told me all he knew of the forest in hopes that maybe it would...

The Elemental of Forest by deathcipris

It was only about a year ago in late September, early October that an acquaintance and soon to be good friend of mine began talking about the band shirt I was wearing that day. We conversed through class and carried our conversation on outside. Right as we were about to depart my friend brought up w...

Haunted Auditorium by zack1392

To start off I go to this high school. I'm not going to release its name because the reputation of the school is bad enough and it doesn't need a ghost story. Back in ninth grade I started as a techie (technical theatre) so I would be up in the light booth working on lights and sound. One day I'm si...

New Apartment Adventures by lazria

Now that I got the old apartment out of the way, it's time for the events in my current apartment. Just under 2 years ago, we moved from the old building to another old building less than a mile away (same zip code). My end of town is old as I somewhat explained before; the Oceanview section of Norf...

My Old Appartment Haunting by lazria

Let me start off by stating that I have lived in what could be considered haunted houses on and off my whole life (currently 31), including both of the apartments I moved into upon leaving my parent's home. I've seen as few things that I can't 100% explain, felt things, and even "know" things that I...

Buddhist Prayers for Civil War Dead by RaisesOrchids

I am a Buddhist nun, called an ani. I live near the Manassas Battlefields in Virginia, and I've frequently gone there to pray for the lives that were lost so tragically. The battlefields cover many miles, and some of the bloodiest battles of the US Civil War were fought in that area. Many Buddhists ...

Scary Retirement Homes by Janique

I work at a retirement home and I like it, but there are just so many people talking about how they have had ghostly encounters. I always said, if I don't see it I don't believe it. Yesterday I was at work with my friend Jessica and co-worker Diane, I was washing dishes and jess was making coffee, w...

The Girl Who Couldn't Figure Out How to Get to Heaven by sassy

In the late summer of 1997, my father and mother purchased the old home place that had been in my father's family for over two hundred years.

That Day I Started to Believe in Ghosts by Dragonmom

Back in high school I went over a friend's house after school. While we were in her room she decided to tell me that there was a ghost in her house.

Jimmy, my Little Brother's Friend by Joanne

My Sister Says Goodbye by ThaiFemme

On October 9th 2007, our family held the funeral of my sister Noy. After the regular prayer, the buddhist ceremony followed and just a handfull of people left.

A Sinister Shadow Entity by bathory313

This happened to me about a month or so ago, and I have posted it in a couple of places; one place for entertainment of others, and one place to try to find some answers to this encounter. I have been having ghost experiences since I was very young; I am now 39 and quite seasoned at ghostly conta...

A Sign that He Can Still Sense Me? by ThaiFemme

In 1998, one of my best friends (Billy), passed away from a car accident.

Guardian Angel? by Jin

I have an incredible story that occurred very recently too - I would like to share it because I believe in guardian angels. I decided to go racing against my friend in his WRX late one night.

The Two Little Boys of Williamsburg, Virginia by TryToFigureItAllOut

Hi, I haven't been on in months because I was sooo scared of these 2 ghosts, so it took me awhile to get over it. I live in New York and I go to a traveling camp. We went to in the beginning of the summer to Williamsburg, Virginia, as some of you ghost hunters or experts know, that's where the "Scar...

My Grandma by torig1230

This is short, and this stuff hasn't happened to me, but my mom. She doesn't think anything of it, but my stomach flips whenever I think of it. It doesn't help that I'm home alone right now, either. Yipee. I've lived here all my life (12 years), in this (hopefully) normal house. About four or five y...

What Happened to Me? by Colleen813

It was late one night and I felt like I could connect with a spirit. I just had a strange feeling, but I was ready for this to happen. I always felt that I could open up and be a medium, I just never really believed. I thought it was made up or something terrible would happen. It must have been arou...

A Ghost? Or my Imagination? by haunted

Hello. I am a 14 year old girl, and I believe that my house is haunted by someone or something. One day I was home alone downstairs on the computer. I was just sitting there and I heard a knocking.

Slave Girl at the Foot of my Bed by Pam

Very early on Tuesday morning, July 16, I awoke suddenly for no good reason. There was no noise, no movement, nothing at all that had disturbed my slumber. I don't know what compelled me to do so, but I immediately sat bolt upright and found myself blinking, incredulously, at the shadowy image of a ...

Knockings at the Bedroom Door by PrissyChick247

How do I explain what I experienced this morning. My nerves are still shot, but I will try. I spent the night at my boyfriend's house. We had just went to bed around 2.am last night.

The Old Civil War Hospital and the Old Indian Burial Ground by Ceary

Well Hello Everyone! When I was 14, I had a friend who experienced a lot of supernatural experiences.

When she was 3, she used to see her dead grandfa...

My Cat Shuby by windsong

I've always been a cat lover and have had cats since I was very young. I had a cat named Shuby. She was as sweet as could be with her plaintive little meow. She was a fairly large cat: at one point she grew to be 17 pounds. We don't know how or by what, but she got bitten when she was 9 or 10. As th...

A Laugh that is not Mine by windsong

My name is Amanda, and I'm 14. I've never considered myself a particularly extraordinary person, but I seem to be living in an extraordinary house. I've been living in the same place in Richmond for as long as I can remember, and things have been happening for as long as I can remember. On one occas...

A Spirit that Likes to Scare Me by Ciel

This happened while I was younger. Before I moved to Massachusetts and for the record it had nothing to do with the haunting, I do not remember much about the house's history, however I believe there were people in it before us. So it started because I had lots of nightmares back then, these nightma...

Medium Experiences by msmeghan2

When I was little and I was in class, I felt like there was a ghost behind me watching every thing I was doing. It was weird, I tried to move but it was like he/she didn't want me to move so it lasted about 30 seconds and that feeling went away. Then when I sleep in my room, I sometimes wake up to s...

Schools Ghouls by dmtm

I go to this creepy high school. Everyone knows it's haunted, there's a girl and a guy in a black coat. They did a show about it on X-files. I'm not a big fan of the supernatural ever since Dollie (she's in my other story). I prefer to ignore things like that. Well, I was heading for class from the ...

I'm 17 now, but when I was 10, I lived with my parents and my brother at my grandma's house. My grandma got me this interactive doll (Dollie) and a porcelain doll (Doll).

Phone Call From Beyond by Zelora

I had a friend, Carol, who was dying of cancer. Her husband called to tell me she was in hospice - meaning the end was very close. I couldn't go to visit her because my car was out of commission, and also because I knew that I'd cry and Carol wouldn't like that. So I just stayed home and cried off a...

A Christmas Visitor by misty millner

About 8 years ago, when I was 5 (I am now 13), I lived in this house which was believed to be haunted. Since I was so young, I didn't really believe this stuff because at that age, kids sometimes think what people tell you are mad up. Just a joke to scare you. It was Christmas Eve and everything ...

Young Girl Saying Hi by Misty White

This didn't happen recently. It happened a couple of years back at close to mid night. I shared a room with my sister so I was happy when she said she was staying the night at my cousins.
