"oh Yup There She Is!" by ERINISAWESOME

My friend lived in the oldest house in the town we lived in. Her house was the first house to ever be built in the town. So we always made jokes about it being haunted as hell and how we could hear things. It never really scared us but we didn't dare taunt them either. She would have some weird dr...

Lesson From A Ghost by jaded_disciple

It was a cold, foggy morning of August 16, 2017, that I decided to go out for a run. I planned to take my usual route which is to get to Mines View via South Drive-Outlook Drive. This is my usual route so I was expecting nothing. It would be a normal run. I didn't expect something out of the ordinar...

Elizabeth & The House On Alberta by Cups

I will preface this story by saying I am very open-minded to the paranormal and do believe ghosts or spirits exist... However, the logical side of me always tries to find an explanation before deeming something "paranormal". Some things cannot be explained. Here are some of them. Portland, OR in...

Calling For Noah by Cups

This is my first post here, so please be kind! I've had many what I would describe as paranormal experiences throughout my life. My earliest memories are of my 5 or 6 year-old self late at night, snuggled in bed. I'm not sure I'd classify this as a "ghost story" but I feel like I should start sharin...

Legs by Gh0stHunter

So one stormy night, 2 of my friends wanted to go on another ghost hunt. I didn't really want to for simply 2 reasons: We went yesterday, and it was pouring rain outside. Eventually they managed to get me to go with the dumb idea because we had never gone during a storm before. There is an old hi...

Time Slip One December Morning by EmmalineTexas

In my 20's I worked for NASA Ames Research Center in Mountain View, California. You know the place with the gigantic blimp hangars? Yep, that's the one. It was a great job with a rotten commute.

Back again with another update. I took some advice and announced to whatever is in my house that the board has to go. I cut it up and tossed it away. Hopefully, it won't reappear.

The Boy In The Red Vest by Jubeele

My mother has a theory that the "sight", for want of a better word, most likely stems from the "exotic" Thai side of Grandma's family. However, that ability may also have come from Grandpa's side of the equation. I never had the privilege of knowing my paternal grandfather. When I was six, I aske...
