It was been a while since my last post. I have recently divorced and now live alone in a historic district of town. My new place was built in 1925 and to my surprise I haven't encountered anything...yet.
My story actually takes place at my friend's grandma's house. My friend's dad and other relatives work on the property making horse bits and other accessories that they sell at horse shows etc. The house is tucked away down a windy dirt road. The property is surrounded by trees, fields, old tobacco barns / sheds and a pond. The place has always had weird pull to it - nothing too frightening but it just gave off a feeling of not being alone. I have been to this property many of time day and night and have never experienced anything other than the feeling I described before.
7/27/09 I was over there hanging out and talking like normal with my friend and his dad when all of a sudden something caught my eye and totally stole ALL of my attention. There was an old tobacco barn about 40 feet from where we were standing. I saw plain as day just like I was looking at you or me, a man walk straight through the front door of this barn. He had on a tan cowboy looking hat and tan looking clothes - looked like overalls. I quickly interrupted my friend and his dad and told them what I had just seen. I must add that I had never been told any history of this place before nor been told of any ghosts.
My friend's dad went on to explain that the first owner of the property had actually hung himself in that barn in the 1900's. I was in awe. It was so cool seeing a ghost in the daylight, outside and in such a real way except for the walking through doors thing.
I walked down the barn and looked around but he was gone, yet I could still feel a definite vibe in the air. My friend later told me that he had been alone out there one day a few weeks back and noticed the dogs going crazy. He saw a man walking around the same barn in the trees but couldn't make him out too much - the man faded away. My description of the clothing and color matched what he had seen. I would like to help this poor fella move on. We'll see...
