I was six years old at the time. Our house was three stories with the second floor being rented out. My brother Mark and I were to sleep on the third floor which had three bedrooms. After saying goodnight to our parents, I ran up the steps alone. Mark was still in the living room talking. When I ...

Finally at Peace After a Long Haunted Ordeal by cleavis20

Typically when I tell people that I grew up in a haunted house, I get a grab bag of mixed results. Some ask questions and others suddenly seem very uncomfortable, but I have come to accept all of it as a side effect of how I was raised. Maybe I should start with a brief background of the area, prope...

The White Spirit by new_volume

My story starts off a few years ago. I was still living with my parents in our old house in Ohio. I have a few friends who are into the spiritual world and visit so-called "haunted" houses on a regular basis. They stumbled across a book on how to achieve an out of body experience. And after only cou...

Recurring Encounters by Jayme16

I want to start off by saying that I am 16 years old, and have a ridiculous fascination with the paranormal.

Spitting Demons? by Mountaineer63

I am 44 years old. When I was about 4 or 5 years old I had an experience that I have tried to make sense of ever since. I had just gone to bed on a summer's night. I know it was summer because it was still light outside, probably about 8:30 p.m. I had not been in bed long and I looked up to the t...

A Father's Sign by Shane

This story happened shortly after the passing of my father. It was a very stressful time for my family and I. I was only 12 at the time and had to take over as the man of the house.

Devoted Parents by El

I was spoken to by ghosts, only they did not reveal themselves in a visual form and they did not speak with voices, instead they spoke with energy. When I was working on my undergrad, I did a paper about cemeteries. I decided to go to the oldest cemetery in my tiny town, dating back to 1814. When I ...

The Night Visitor by BYLUYSTER

When I was a kid, I overheard my mother and aunt talking about seeing ghosts and other strange phenomenon they had experienced.

Our Old Farm House by Jodi

I grew up in a small town (more projects than anything else, we lived in the "new homes"), before moving to a small farming community when my mother divorced my father.

The Subtle Pounding by mike8887

I previously published a story called Eerie Things Started Happening to Me. Another thing that has been happening a lot since a few years ago is a subtle pounding.

Phasmophobia by propp21

Phasmophobia (fear of ghosts), yes I have it. Who could really blame me? I went from a non-believer to a man whose hair stands on end from the mere thought of it. It all started around midnight four nights ago. I lay in my bed, so close to falling asleep when I began hearing voices to my left. The v...

A Warning from my Mother by Ary

A year after my mother died, I had become very close to my thrill seeking friend Beth.

One night I...

I live in Boardman, Ohio, and there are three stories that I have since the Summer of 2000 that I would like to explain.

The Skinned Dog by redone1867

I know this story is going to be a little unbelievable but most of my stories are. I was 17 years old and was staying with my best friend Anna. It was a pretty average night hanging out in her living room. We had just put her son to bed and were having a great time laughing and talking of old times....

Levi by BewitchedKitti

I give this spirit a name because we maintain it's Levi. A few things had happened. The basement door opened... The smell of a man's cologne... The sight of a man out of the corner of your eye... Lights flickering... One day I turned my head and watched a man in a tweed jacket walk into the spare...

Unexplained Noise and Movement by BewitchedKitti

I have had several 'ghost' experiences throughout the years. The first being when I was about four -I was sitting on the toilet and I started yelling for my mom because I saw 'smoke' in the bathroom.

Midnight Shadow by Whoaness

I'm going to give a bit of background info on what room I was in, and how I can try to figure what went on. The computer is located in the computer room. This happened when we had the old computer, one that wasn't exactly the brightest, but it could still cause shadows when one walked by. The comput...

Noises in the Night by JCop08

I have always believed in spirits and the undead but I never thought anything would ever happen to me... Until two nights ago when it finally did. I am 17 years old and I have never been so scared.

For a couple of weeks, I've been feeling my old black cat's presence. She has been dead over four years now. I got two more cats.

One of the infamous spots around here is Buffalo Ridge, a hilly road that's just a bit northwest of Cincinnati in Cleves.
