My family used to live in a home in Madison county Idaho. I was very young at the time, maybe 6 or 7. This is one of my most vivid memories from my childhood and it still makes me nervous when I'm alone. My family and this house have a history of experiences like mine and I think they could be related.
My experience occurred very late at night, maybe 1-2 a.m. I couldn't sleep and my mom was asleep in my room that night because I felt very uneasy and nervous that night. I was reading and had just turned off my light, when I had a feeling we weren't alone and I was being stared at. I looked up and I remember going rigid and feeling like I was choking. Next to my dresser and my closet there was a black figure with almost no visible features. The figure appeared to be a little boy from what I could make out. He was about my height and was wearing a cap like they did around pioneer times, 1800's I guess. The thing that scared me the most about it was it's eyes, because they were glowing bright blue. All I could do was stare at the figure and it's eyes. I couldn't move or look away and it slowly faded. I passed out once it was gone.
Other members of my extended family have had experiences with a little boy in this house. My uncle saw a small shadow run and hide under the pool table and when he looked underneath it there was no one there. My aunt was playing hide and seek with her sisters when they were young and lived in the house and a little boy with a striped shirt hid from her, and when she found him he looked at her and then walked through the wall. Other things like voices calling or whispering our names, pool balls moving in a circle of its own accord, and toy cars driving by themselves have all happened. Faucets turned themselves on full blast and then off.
Never have I felt threatened and another of my aunts lives there now. I haven't heard of anything happening recently. I don't know the history of the house or anything. I do have some pioneer ancestors so perhaps some of them died in the snow.
Any ideas? Any thoughts? Any questions? Let me know in the comments. Thanks for reading, I know it is long.
