While living in the state of Maine, my 2 sons and I headed up the road to look in an old apple orchard to shoot a deer. Outside the orchard was an old stone home. Across from it was a fallen down barn. The boys and I walked over the old barn. There was "some" snow on the ground, not a whole lot. As we got directly across from the driveway of the house - we could see the trees out back. Behind the trees was a large pond, something caught my eye in the side window of the house. It was a large woman in a apron, leaning on the table there and smiling at us. I told the boys we should go and ask her if it was alright to cut through her yard to go behind and into the orchard.
We walked across the street and knocked on the door, noticing immediately that there was no furniture in the house. I walked around to the side window. There was a old table there in front of the window, all dusty "with NO hand marks" where the woman had been leaning. Also, NO footprints around the house in the snow! We saw her for quite sometime before crossing the dirt road. She was there! But - not a real person at all...
She was a real ghost. We later learned that the house was empty because of this woman who had haunted it for many years. The house has been torn down, no one could ever live in it. It was in Fryeburg, Maine. There was a very - very haunted house near Bridgton, Maine, about 8 miles from this one. The owner offered $100 to anyone who could spend the night in it, no one ever did while I lived up there!
Strange, but true.
