I've been having problems with my home for quite some time now, and I wanted to know if anyone had an idea of what could be going on.
Some background information: my house was built over an abandoned Puritan barn. When we moved in, some of the brick walls were still intact in our backyard, but since then, we have knocked them down. Our house is also located a few houses away from a run down Puritan/Quaker cemetery, and next to the cemetery is an old church that is supposedly haunted. My house was also supposedly the "haunted house" on the block way back when no one lived here. However, when it was vacant, there was a fire in the basement. This leads to my experiences in the house.
I've always felt uncomfortable and had the feeling like someone was watching me from the day I moved in. Back then I didn't know any of the information about my house that I know now. We've lived there for about four years now and in this past year and a half the scares are becoming more frequent.
The first thing that happened, one afternoon I was home alone and went downstairs to get lunch. From my kitchen, there is an open doorway to our dining room. In the doorway there was a figure, about three feet tall, pure black and I had the feeling it was a boy, and even though it didn't have eyes I knew it was staring at me. In the blink of an eye, he was gone.
Next, both of my dogs sleep with me in my room. If they hear a noise downstairs, they jump off the bed and bark at the door to get out to go bark at whatever noise is bothering them. However, sometimes they wake up out of a dead sleep, both of them at the same time and just growl at my closet. They do it for about ten or more minutes and you can see their heads moving back and forth like they're watching something. They only do this to one of the closets in my bedroom. The other night, I woke up in a startle and saw an image of a man hung in all black from one of the closets my dogs bark at. It really freaked me out.
The creepiest thing of all, one night at about 11 pm I was walking downstairs to ask my mom something and I heard what I thought was her talking to my dad. I went into his study and no one was in there. I looked through the whole floor of the house and no televisions were on. I went into their bedroom and they were sound asleep. The next day I told my mom and she said no matter what you do, don't tell you little brother, he will get scared. I didn't tell anyone and the very next day, my brother came out of his bedroom scared, saying he heard two different voices in his room. He said they sounded sad and he didn't recognize the voices. A few weeks ago, he claimed he heard the voices again late one night downstairs, and thought it was my parents as well.
Could my house possibly have these hauntings because of the cemetery? I really want to know what could be going on.
