I live in Graysville Alabama which is a small old mining camp community. The house we live in is like 50-60 years old. We have been renting for about 3 years. I have only been in this house in complete darkness once because when it happened I could feel breath on my face like someone was right there, weird that everyone was asleep. Since then my mom who baby sits sometimes was giving my baby a bath and playing peek a boo with the shower curtain, when mom pulled the curtain back my 2 year old was waving beyond my mom to the laundry room and when mom asked who she was waving at my baby said " that man" my baby said he protects me. Needless to say my mom was pale when I came home.
A few weeks later my husband jumped out of bed and grabbed his shot gun when I asked what he was doing he yelled "did you just see someone walk past the bedroom door?" He doesn't believe in ghosts or anything like that but he swears someone was in our house. I have heard a lot of stories about this town but this is just too real.
Short story if spirits do walk among us were fine with that as long as they protect us and are friendly. And yes I have been broke down by loss in Birmingham and heard screams coming from over there, it is a truly freaky place.
I also work nights in an old abandoned jail in Graysville dispatching the fire department. I hear all kinds of creepy noises,
I was told recently that the land used to be a grave yard.
