This story starts about 7 years ago. We just moved into a new house, that needed so much work. When one of the walls were taken down there was the most unusual and beautifully carved chair back, at first I thought it was a frame to a mirror.
As the weeks passed, we came across a boarded up storage space. We removed the boards, and found the seat to the chair and two legs.
Now, if this wasn't strange enough, the yard work started. As we dug up the weeds we found two of the legs to the chair buried in plastic that was disintegrated. These were a little damaged and had worm holes in them but still in good condition. So, now we have a whole chair.
My son and I put the chair together and as soon as it was complete we both said the same thing, "This chair is haunted." We dismantled it as quickly as we put it together, put it all in a big trash bag and put it in the garage for years.
I thought about the beautiful chair all the time and when I moved I wanted to put the chair back together, so I did. I felt for some reason I was the guardian of it.
I told everyone who came over never sit in it. But one night my husband, who mocked my warning, sat in the chair. It was immediately that his eyes had a blank look, almost as he was in a trance. That same night he was admitted to the hospital for months. He didn't know what year it was or what he did for a living. It was a very scary time as the doctors could not diagnose the problem.
I knew right away it was this chair. I had the chair dated and it is from the late 1400s. It beautifully carved with a woman's face. One day I was watching the history channel and on the episode Dracula Castle, there it was! The same exact chair.
So this is my strange and very true story. I still have the chair, but it is safe and sound sitting happily in my guest room with no chance of anyone ever sitting on it again. Oh, one more thing sometimes just sometimes when you photograph it there is an eerie mist. This has happen a few times when guests take pictures if it. Well that's it.
