Haunted house, ever stayed in one?

Came across these "news" article on Yahoo

http://news.yahoo.com/blogs/abc-blog...opstories.html

Interesting story, but now I wonder how many of you guys believe in ghosts/paranormal activities. Better yet, who think they have stayed in a haunted house before? What was it like?

In college, me and my roommates stayed in a house in Riverside, California and we'd always hear an odd knocking noise from the attic/roof. The knocking can change from "knocking on the door/table/wall" to "dropped the remote control". The knocking always came after ~ 1:30am has passed and persists until dawn.

On several occasions, we tried to locate the knocking but could never pin point it, nor could we discover the source for such knocking.

After the initial freaked-out months and attempts at locating the knocking, we just ignored it and said "Steve's home."

Post your haunted house stories, or whatever haunting stories you may have.

Re: Haunted house, ever stayed in one?

Well my friends in Denton use to live at this house where a family got killed. Dad went mad and killed kids and wife and at the end killed himself. They said they would always hear noises in the attic. One day one of the guys showed me scratches on his back. Said they just appeared. One day they had a house party and like the next door neighbor came over and at the end of the party it was just a small circle and he was saying "man you guys have lasted the longest at this house. This house feeds off negativity. You guys are friends and don't fight. I notice the people before you didn't last very long because they would have regular arguments and I guess that made the spirits angry". One day they showed me on Google Streets what is a little girl standing on the side of their house next to the trash cans and like when you keep scrolling down the street she isn't there. Im not saying I believe or didn't but it was pretty interesting lol.

As for me, my house isn't haunted but only once did I experience a WTF moment. My dad was under the car changing oil I think and like I see a little girl dancing/skipping around our tree in the backyard. I thought my parents had company show up. I lean over the engine and can see his face and Im like "hey dad, who's that? Dad. Dad! DAD! HEY DAD!!!!!!!!!! (wtf Im thinking at this moment) so I ask her who are you and she runs towards driveway and I run through the house to cut through and cut her off at the front of house. During all this I notice no one is inside our house but just mom in living room. No car in our driveway and our fence was closed. From where my mom was sitting you can see if anyone comes in and out. My mom asks why are you running? And I tell her there was a little girl in the backyard and I was yelling at dad and he didn't hear. I went back outside and told my dad why didn't he reply and he says that he never heard me say anything (I should have kicked him lol)

Well that's all I got ha
I was thinking of staying at this hotel April 27-29 for Fiesta in San Antonio cause I hear its haunted, Emily Morgan Hotel...but fuuuuu that, I want to get some rest lol

Re: Haunted house, ever stayed in one?

Haha my old house was a new house, but located near a small cemetary. The wierdest stuff would happen. from golf clubs pitched in a corner of a room all of a sudden being thrown and scattered around the room, a dart board on the wall moved accross the room and stood neatly leaning against the wall opposite the wall it used to hang on, doors would open and slam shut (even ones with automatic door shutters installed on them), foot steps, voices.. yadda yadda.

It was an interesting living situation. I found it interesting until the last day i lived there. I was in the garage by myself checking out the place making sure i had everything when i heard pounding footsteps in the room above the garage. so i investigated it (like the typical dumb white person in most horror films lol) when i got to the room it was vacant. so i went down to the garage to finish my cig when i hear the pounding footsteps again, but this time they sounded if they were running. then i heard the door to the room slam shut and the foot steps continued down the stairs toward the garage door. by that point i was in my car shutting the garage door and peacing the hell out of there. lol

Re: Haunted house, ever stayed in one?

I have one. I don't believe in the supernatural, aliens or any type of monotheistic religion. That being said, I had an experience I cannot fully explain.

In Prince George Maryland, there's an old abandoned hospital. It's Glenndale Hospital. It shut down in the 80s... There's a lot of details about the place and my experience there but for your sake, I'll simplify it as much as I can. There's on-campus police. Not guards... Police. If they catch you there, they'll arrest you.

Well, while I was stationed in Dover DE, a friend told me about the place. It's an abandoned TB Hospital. It's the stereotypical abandoned hospital. The Head Doctor has his own mansion on the property, the nurses had their own housing building and the children were separated from the adults. All to prevent the spread of Tuberculosis. The two hospitals are connected by a tunnel, which is flooded now and has been for some times. Apparently, they also housed mentally ill patients there after the TB epidemic dimminished. On to my experience...

My buddy Rob told me about this place. I decided I wanted to go because I'm all about adrenaline rushes and getting the shit creeped out of me. We make the 2 hour drive. This was in May 2008. Another friend, Mike, was with us. They failed to mention that the cops have night vision and dogs... Just for trespassers.

We took bats and knives with us because drug addicted bums like to squat there. We get there and have to run across an open field to get to one of few doors that aren't locked, boarded up or chained. The whole time there, I felt like someone was watching/following us. We stayed together the whole time. Once inside, we donned our gasmasks (esbestos) to try to protect ourselves... I'm not sure if the masks help.. Better to have it than not. We explored the main hosptital floor by floor. The whole time we were there, we could hear footsteps behind us. It was so dark in there that my surefire flashlight had a hard time cutting through the darkness. Every time we would hear something we would all turn around.. Nothing. We knew it wan't a cop, he would have stopped us. It wasn't a dog or crackhead... They're not that quiet. We don't know who or what was following us. One instant I remember taking off my mask to catch a breath.. The old masks we had are a bitch to breath in. The smell of this place was unbearable. The humid bay air mixed with years of neglect was stomach turning. I kept my mask on for the rest of our stay there.

In one of the rooms we were in, there were three big windows. This was one of few rooms that didn't have the windows boarded. Moonlight shone through. We decided to take a look outside. All we saw was an open field with a few trees, the head doctor's mansion through the tree line and the lights in the distance from the town. We felt the room get cold and decided to leave the room. As you leave the room, you enter a long narrow hallway. If you look right, there's two doors on the left side of the hallway and one on the right. After those three doors, the hallway comes to a T intersection. We could see light at the end of the hall. As we left the room, we were trying to decide which way to go. We were ready to leave by this point, we had already been there about an hour and a half and didn't want to risk getting caught or worse... We were spooked at this point. We could retrace our steps into the darkness to the left, or walk towards the light (no punn intended). As we discussed our options, we were looking and pointing our lights in the directions we preferred. We looked left, right, left and right again. I was standing closest to the light. As I went to look from right to left, something caught my eye. I swear I saw a shaddow run past our hall on the T intersection. It moved left to right. First, I wanted to go towards the light so I could see where I was going. Now I was ready to go the other direction. Now Mike wanted to check it out. we walked to the end of the hall and took a right. there was a Big window at the end stretching from ankle high to the ceiling. One door on the right. through this door is a large office. at the far wall is a glass partician, through the next door in that office passed the partician, there's another office. Just as big. In the second office, there was a smaller office. No other way in or out. There wasn't much in these offices so there was nowhere to hide. These rooms were empty. When the shadow passed our hall, there wasn't any noise from it. We thought/hoped it was somethig infront of the window casting shaddows and we were just being pussies. We were on the third floor and there were no trees blocking the moonlight. To this day, I swear what I saw looked like a human sized shadow running from one side to the other. We made it to the tunnel in the basement of the main hospital. (Fuck swimming in this shit!). We made our way outside to the children's building where we saw the children's morgue. That was erie. The whole time we were there, we could hear noises on the upper floors. We heard walking, running, pounding, doors slamming and voices. We never ran into anyone. I will never go back.

I'm including a URL of a site that is ran by a photographer who has been to the hospital and other sites around the world. This is the site Rob and Mike showed me when they first told me about Glenndale.

Edited to fix grammatical errors and fill minor gaps at the end.

Re: Haunted house, ever stayed in one?

Thanks for the link! (actually, I take that back... )

I wouldn't go inside even if I had spot lights paving a path for me, even if during the daytime too.

Look at this place!







I'm all for being brave and standing up against injustice, bullies, etc.

But I don't mess with creepy places and unexplained events.

The college house I lived in with my roommates, the unexplained knocking after 1-2am, or "Steve" as we called him wore on me eventually. It's the not knowing, and the possibility of what it could be freaked us out.

Yeah, That place is definitly creepy. Look at the floor. As you walk, dust gets kicked up, no matter what. And it's impossible to "sneek" around.

Re: Haunted house, ever stayed in one?

I've never been inside of there, but live pretty close. I drove by it once and that itself was pretty eerie, AND it was during the day. Don't know if I could ever bring myself to get out of the car, let alone go inside.

There are a lot of haunted places around where I live, though. Ellicott City is supposed to be pretty bad, which I have been in and around a trillion times, but haven't ever really seen anything too crazy.
