We moved into our house six years ago in a small town called Hooper. It is a small farm town settled by Pioneers in 1849. Our house was built for us, the land is an old hay field with no known paranormal history. I have searched online and in the library for any abnormal history without any luck. Recently there have been some strange activities in the house. Here are the latest three:
1. My wife and I were in the bathroom taking a shower. The light switch is across the room and I was standing in front of the shower door rinsing my hair so my wife could not pass without bumping into me. The door was locked so no one could come in. The light switch is a dimmer switch. When I opened my eyes, the lights on the dimmer switch were much brighter. I asked my wife if she turned it on, she responded, "No I saw it move by itself..." Another time I was in the shower alone, the door was locked and I turned around just in time to see the dimmer switch move up by itself. The lights the dimmer were on turned on all the way, and they were brighter than I have ever seen them. After the shower I tested the switch and it appeared to work normal. It is not loose and takes some pressure to slide the switch on.
2. My wife was home with my oldest and they heard footsteps walking around on the back deck. They looked out the window and could not see anything. We live on an acre, so no one could come on the porch and run off without being seen. They investigated around the house and the lot (no trees) and saw no one.
3. We have wood floors in our house. One night I heard footsteps run across them. I shouted for the kids to go back to bed. The footsteps stopped then started again. I got up to see which kid was wondering around, but they were all fast asleep. I sat back down and heard steps run back and forth for 10 minutes. The steps repeated over and over like someone was lost, looking for something.
