Real Haunted Houses...........

9 replies • Last post

Since it is that spooky time of year in the US i thought i would share some spooky haunted houses that are well known............

Schweppe Mansion
Chicago, Illinois

This stone mansion with twenty rooms was unoccupied for half a century after the man who owned it committed suicide; he was mourning the loss of his wife Laura Schweppe. The halls are haunted by the ghost of his servant. The ghost of the former owner is seen in the bedrooms. There is one window in the master bedroom that, despite all the other windows being filthy, never needs cleaning.

House across from Victoria Cemetery
Marshallberg, North Carolina

In this house, the lonely wife of a fisherman began having an affair. Soon, she gave birth to her lover’s baby. As she heard her the fisherman approaching, she killed the baby and buried it under the porch. Eventually, the woman went insane because she kept hearing the baby’s cries. It is said that if one stands on the porch, the baby’s cries may still be heard.

Keyhole State Park
Devil's Tower, Wyoming

Many years ago, after being kidnapped and tortured, a man was murdered and thrown into the nearby river. People have reported seeing a misty figure lurking around the cabin nicknamed “Little Keyhole.” The figure has also been spotted prior to accidents, as if warning of oncoming danger.

Resurrection Mary
Bridgeview, Illinois

One raining day, a woman was killed as she was leaving the ceremony. Today, she hitchhikes, in her wedding dress, along 79th street. After one picks her up for a ride, she vaishes, leaving the seats and car floor wet from that rainy night.

Ghost Road
Chesterton, Indiana

About one hundred years ago a woman left her young son with a baby-sitter and when she returned, her home was ablaze. Frantically, she ran inside to try to find her son, but only found the baby-sitter. The woman searched the woods around her house for her baby. So overcome with grief was she, that the woman died of a heart attack. If one drives to Ghost Road and parks, he may see the woman–a whitish-blue light hiding behind trees. She may also be seen rocking in a chair in a field across the road.

Do you have any haunted locations in your neck of the woods?

This was a good read about the Schweppe mansion:

There's even a video of the place in there as the owner is trying to sell it.

There are many scary legends coming from Serbia. Did you know where the word "vampire" comes from? Serbia. The most famous Serbian vampire was called Sava Savanovic, and there is still belief that whoever spends a night in his grain mill, will not live to see the morning light.

I have an interesting tidbit. Despite the fact that you will undoubtedly believe me to be a few eggs short of a dozen, I will impart what I have learned from my experience.

We have always joked that our house was haunted. After living here for 9 years and having heard more noises in the attic than usual, I decided one night to record the noises in the attic to determine whether squirrel had taken up residence. I used a small Sony digit recorder.

When listening to the recording, I was really surprised to not only hear noises in my attic, but voices as well----–one of which was my name being called. Scared

But, let’s rewind to the end.

After taking many, many recordings over the past year, I have found out that you can not only record the voices of those who have past on, but you can communicate with them as well. I have found that these spirits know all that goes on in my house, can answer my questions, etc. I have even been able to contact my loved ones.

I have taken these recordings in not only my house but others as well. I use WavePad and Clear Voice to amplify and cleaning up the background noises so the messages are more audible.

Whether or not you believe it, it is all true, and I think everyone can do the same.

I must admit I am pretty skeptical of that sort of thing.

But Rodaaf282 that story is really freaky. How do you communicate with them? By going up into the attic and talking or do you have to leave a message on the tape recorder?

Have you tried setting up a camera?

Yeah, a camera which records aura and energy fields would be the right thing! Wow, what a freaky story! How come you're not afraid, Rodaaf?

Awesome story rodaff! I completely relate to you that people think your one sandwich short of a picnic. Until it happens to them then they never quite understand. It just seems to far fetched and difficult to fathom.

I have not had quite the interaction that you have, but i have had experiences. What is more interesting is that i am not the only one that has heard voices, sighs and the presence of someone. Only until i mentioned one day did the flood gates open to the same exact experiences to others in the house.

When I communicate with my "friends", I set the recorder on "record" and ask questions. I cannot hear responses until I listen to the recording. I guess if I had coffee mugs being chucked at my head or something, I might find it frightening. But, honestly, I see no sign of any kind of presence or otherwise. I tried a digital camera once, but received no results and never tried again. However, I do take about 4 or 5 recordings a month and have had some really interesting responses. Some of the spirits are sad, some are angry, some are frightened and the list goes on, Some sing, some whistle, some count, and some build things (i.e. pianos). One time, I asked one of them to try to move something in my house, and his answer was "Bite Me." So, they even have a sense of humor.

But, the coolest of all is when I realized that I could communicate with my grandma and grandpa, with whom I was very close. I had asked my grandma to give me the name of one of her sisters, and instead of giving me her sister's first name "Kay," she gave me her sister's last name instead -- "Romanowski." That totally floored me--and that is when I first realized I was actually hearing from my grandma.

However, the point that I am trying to make here is that I am sure that if EVERYONE were to set up a digital recorder, they would also hear the departed.

Here's the spooky watermill where Sava Savanovic, the vampire, used to live, along with some interesting info about vampires in the Serbian folklore and art. You can also see a part of an old, freaky Serbian horror movie - 'She Butterfly.'

thanks for that story CatFace. i read it and went off for about half an hour reading about vampires and stuff on wikipedia.

seems there was a vampire craze in the 18th and 19th centuries in parts of europe and when people started getting sick they would blame vampires. so they would dig up the grave of whoever had been accused of being a vampire and if they werent all decomposed or their fingernail had grown (which happens even after you are dead) the people would stake the heart then cut off the head and burn the body to make sure!! but they were burying htem in the freezing cold countryside so of course they didnt decompose quickly! crazy times!
