The Whaley House : The most haunted house in the U.S

February 26, 2009 at 6:55 am (horror, spirit, Stories) (, )

Located in San Diego, California, the Whaley House has earned the title of “the most haunted house in the U.S.” Built in 1857 by Thomas Whaley on land that was partially once a cemetery, the house has since been the locus of dozens of ghost sightings.

The Whaley House

The Whaley House

Author deTraci Regula relates her experiences with the house: “Over the years, while dining across the street at the Old Town Mexican Cafe, I became accustomed to noticing that the shutters of the second-story windows [of the Whaley House] would sometimes open while we ate dinner, long after the house was closed for the day. On a recent visit, I could feel the energy in several spots in the house, particularly in the courtroom, where I also smelled the faint scent of a cigar, supposedly Whaley’s calling-card. In the hallway, I smelled perfume, initially attributing that to the young woman acting as docent, but some later surreptitious sniffing in her direction as I talked to her about the house revealed her to be scent-free.”

Some of the other ghostly encounters include:

  • The spirit of a young girl who was accidentally hanged on the property.
  • The ghost of Yankee Jim Robinson, a thief who was clubbed to death and who can be heard on the house’s stairway where he died, and has sometimes been seen during tours of the old house.
  • The red-haired daughter of the Whaley’s sometimes appears in such a realistic form; she is sometimes mistaken for a live child.

Famed psychic Sybil Leek claimed to have sensed several spirits there, and renowned ghost hunter Hanz Holzer considered the Whaley to be one of the most reliably haunted structures in the United States.

However, a resident of the town for many years, knows the building that is being referred to. It was formerly located in Oakland Park, the three-story brick building built in the late 1800s was a sanitarium for tuberculosis patients. It served that purpose until TB was eradicated in the 1950s. After that, the building was used as a nursing home until a new nursing home was built on the property in the late 70s early 80s. In the mid-1980s the building housed a dormitory for the local community college. The students that lived there were a little upset when the college failed to mention that the “dorm” was about six miles away from the college. Needless to say, the building was only used for a few years as a dorm. It stood empty from that time and was used for storage for the nursing home. It was torn down a few years ago. There is some interesting features on the building and its history. A tunnel was constructed that lead from the basement kitchen to the nurses’ quarters (a separate building on the premises) so that the staff could travel between the buildings without having to go outside in the winter.

At night after 12 am if you count the trees at the center of the cemetery and if you go to the boy’s grave and come back the number of trees has changed.

For centuries people have sought to have psychic abilities proven, yet the answer has seemed illusive. People such as Chris Angel and David Blaine leave people breathless in wonderment, yet still the final answer has escaped validation. At the same time you have skeptics who feel that the abilities of a psychic are nothing more then a collection of generalizations that everyone can relate to. Is psychic ability real and will it ever be accepted?

Since the age old question has yet to be proven scientifically, the psychic field has been rattled with frauds, wannabes, and outright whackadoos. These people prey upon the grief, uncertainties, and unstable time’s people fall upon and tell them what they want to hear so they can fill their bank accounts with their client’s money. In essence the situation involves one individual paying another to tell them what they want to hear.

Other then frauds, there are many actual psychics that are in mental institutions and many who are just plain psychotic who claim to be psychic. Some people actually hear voices from beyond and pay to be institutionalized for doing so, whereas some hear voices because of mental disorders and charge you to listen. Yet where is the real answer, especially when an individual has a lady across the table claiming Sally said “Hi” when the original questions was “Can you pass the syrup?”, and a psychic hotline can only tell one more about their future if they press “#” followed by their pin number?

Numerous respectable psychics seek the answers to respectability among the muck of undesirables and frauds. The true psychic does not sit around with a crystal ball or a deck of tarot cards in hand. In fact, one will most likely not find them dressed in brightly colored frocks with a turban on their heads nor with a third eye painted between their brows. Think about it, just because a person tames lions, does not necessarily mean they are going to walk down the street with one. Instead they dress in usual attire, speak on grounded terms, and hail from every walk in life.

YouTube has a video from an NAS Museum where psychic Rhiannon Waits reads energy from a vintage Japanese Zero that is being prepared for restoration. Naval Administration are the only ones that have the ability to research where this particular aircraft was and have records to where each part was located before its arrival to the hangar. Rhiannon tells the planes history and information of the pilot that navigated it to the director of its restoration. She explains that she reads energy from the aircraft, thus revealing its history. A quick search for Rhiannon Waits in YouTube search box will allow you to view this short clip. (Reference (1): youtube.com/watch?v=LJ29J_Jwww4)

Numerous television shows have become popular as they seek out haunted houses or explore paranormal activity. However, despite the popularity of such broadcasts, there are many individuals who appear to hesitate when it comes to admitting belief of existence in paranormal phenomena. It seems as if the average person finds safety and shelter behind the conclusions of a television critic.

One show in particular, which seems to escape the flakiness and the shroud of hysterical Ghost hunters, is aired on the Sci-Fi Channel. Ghost Hunter has now been aired for several years now and features TAPS (The Atlantic Paranormal Society). What is significant about this show is that it is filmed as they investigate certain places to either validate or disprove paranormal activity. With the use of scientific equipment, the reports submitted by those experiencing the activity, and several investigators, they collect all data possible and then submit their findings. Viewers can rest assured that they will not find this team screaming in fear or running from the findings. The unbiased team will analyze their findings and complete a report stating whether a location is considered to have a significant amount of paranormal activity or not, and why that conclusion is so. For example, one may say their house is haunted based on the idea that they always hear foot steps at night. Yet, a closer look can reveal that due to changing climates and wooden floors, the sounds are simply coming from the wood adapting to the changing temperatures outside and within the house. In spite of their professionalism, Grant Wilson and Jason Hawes are still attacked by skeptics and criticism from those devoted disbelievers. (Reference (2): scifi.com/ghosthunters/)

Who are these attacking critics and why is it that they become so vicious in their attacks? There are many reasons for this. Some hail from Christianity, where they point to a few passages in the bible where they refer to the paranormal and those who believe and go in search of it in are to be dammed and are headed for a damning light. However, this appears to contradict itself as many Christians cast this aside as they read more than a few passages that refer to prophets, spirits and miracles. To cast the entire skeptic community on Christianity would be erroneous. Yet, perhaps their religious upbringing has many in fear of damnation for believing what they were taught was wrong.

Numerous skeptics come from atheist backgrounds. Their inability to believe in what they cannot see shrouds their judgments. If they were to believe in the afterlife and the ability to see beyond it, then logically, their belief system might be in jeopardy. This fight then becomes one of self preservation because it is the basis of their life structure.

In contrast, if one recalls ancient times where individuals believed in the afterlife. The ancient Egyptians would fill their tombs with possessions that they believed would go with them into an afterlife. Likewise, the ancient Greeks longed for the day they died, where in the afterlife they would be able to enjoy a huge banquet for eternity. Let us not forget all of those who believed the world was flat and Christopher Columbus was crazy, when he decided to prove one would not sail off the face of the earth. One can argue that ancient times are primitive eras, yet theoretically, the society we live in today will someday be considered primitive.

Overall, most of the time I find that some will simply say, “It isn’t real,” yet when I ask why, I get a response such as “because it isn’t,” “Its just fake,” so on an so forth. Therefore, one can conclude that when it comes to the paranormal, it is not a matter of whether or not something exists, yet it comes down to having an open mind and being able to evaluate situations in terms of being “inside and/or outside the box”.

No matter where the skeptics come from or what their purpose, they all agree on one area. They will seek out the frauds, the imaginative, the mentally ill and any mistake or fallible act to use as creditability and validation for their point of view. Where skepticism is good to a certain point for us all – blind obsessive compulsive skepticism is good for no one. It proves nothing. Keeping an open mind and being able to think on a deeper level will allow one to experience more, which then, expands one’s knowledge and overall horizon intelligence.

So do psychic abilities and the afterlife exist? This will be for the individual to decide. It should have enough doubt to keep it real and yet enough belief to embrace the possibilities.

Allamuchy – Ghost Lake -
Ghost Lake is located on Shades of Death Road in Allamuchy Township the local legends vary – but the prevailing theme is that there was an Indian Graveyard there and settlers built a man made lake over the graveyard.

While it was being built, the wife went up to the top floor, as she came down, she saw her husband with another woman! She ran back up to the top, and jumped out. There is a myth, if you circle the tower, 8 times or something, something is supposed to happen. Nobody has been able to complete it.

Ancora – Veterans haven - Veterans haven is right next to bayside prison ward and Ancora mental institution. It was once a town the psychiatric hospital made for patients to all live together, many of the patients murdered each other, and the most of them are old veterans from the war.

Atlantic City – Taj Mahal - it is said that man jumped from the tenth floor of the garage and haunts that area every night around midnight

Bay Head – The Greenville Hotel/Restaurant -
Over the years many employees have experienced many things from ghosts physically appearing (looking very much like a live person) and walking down the hall and disappearing, to the sounds of children playing in the lobby late at night. One employee even reported falling asleep on the couch in the lobby and awaking to the sounds of kids playing in front of them. He saw glimpses of them as well. There are sounds of moving furniture in unoccupied rooms, sounds of people walking down the hall but “no one is there”, the sense that someone is standing behind you, but “no one is there”. Guests report hearing children run down the halls laughing in the middle of the night, but there are never any live children doing that. In fact it is rare that children stay there.

Bayonne – Bayonne High School – The now auditorium of the high school used to be the Jr high section. It’s been said that a boy around 14 hung himself from the stairwell, also it’s been said he was pushed and broke his neck but anyway. If you go there just before school season begins you will see a boy opening the doors to the auditorium with school books in his hands. Also on many nights that the high school has put on plays there is a boy in the back of the room just watching.

Bayonne – Elco Naval Base - This was a World War Two Factory active to make P.T. Boats after the war a lot of people lost the jobs. During the war a boat fell off a conveyer belt and crushed 2 men.

Bayonne – Robbins Reef Yacht Club - The gentleman who haunts this location was said to have hung himself in an unstairs bedroom.

At the end of the field there is a huge hideous looking tree with a branch that extends perfectly parallel to the ground. It is said that the tree was used to hang slaves on and still has a chilling aura to it. You can see marks on the trunk from people attempting to chop it down, they say whoever tries, something bad happens to and sometimes a pickup truck will try to chase you out. In the Summer that tree is in full bloom and actually quite lovely. In the Winter or Fall however, it is creepy looking. The axe marks on the tree are from years of kids hearing the legend of the tree and what would happen if you tried to cut it down. Supposedly if you try to cut it down the devil in a black pick up truck will come and chase you away, once you drive down the road a bit the truck just vanishes. It’s an Urban Legend that gets featured in Weird NJ magazine all the time. Please get permission before you visit this property, otherwise you are trespassing and could get arrested.

New Monmauth – Shelly Drive - During the Revolutionary War the woods that once stood where now stands a housing sub-division, with the street name of Shelly Drive, provided cover and refuge to many troops of both sides of the American conflict. It has long been said that where the street Shelly Drive ends into a new sub-division there was a horrible battle between Patriots and British troops. So Bloody and horrific was this Battle that scores of troops from both sides were killed. One particularly poor soul was that of a boy named William Champlain who fought on the side of the Patriots but was a spy for the British. When it was discovered by Washington’s troops that Champlain was a spy they did not let on to him that he was compromised. At the start of the battle it was relayed to the troops by Washington himself that Champlain should be shot from behind to let the British know that his traitorous dealings didn’t deserve a bullet from the firing squad. Upon the start of the Battle Champlain moved to the front of the line to get a better shot he was heard to say, and before the first volley of shots were exchanged between side’s he was dropped in his stride from a volley of shot’s from five patriot’s. It has long been said that the spirit of William Champlain Haunt’s the sub-division in search of Washington in the hopes of finding out why he was struck down by his own troops. Being only a boy of 17 at the time of his demise and fond of the flute he has been heard many a fall night playing sad ballads and tunes in search of his mentor. So if you are walking or driving down Shelly Drive one evening and see a young lad dressed in Colonial attire don’t be alarmed it is only William Champlain looking for his troops bivouac, and the reason for his betrayal.

As you walk in one flashlight will light up the entire room as it reflects off of the water and the crystals. It provides you with an eerie feeling right from the start. As you walk around you will notice cold spots and hot spots. Though not particularly the most desirable place to spend eternity, it would seem that many apparitions could be seen there.

Los Alamos – Los Alamos High School - The auditorium is the dwelling place of the two most frequently seen ghosts in the school.

Here, a petite Spanish maid, Inez, was stabbed to death by the mother, Senora Maese, of her lover, Armando. The son was stabbed himself and died just days later. The Carlotta Room, the scene of the tragedy, has a reputation for cold spots, a woman’s laughter, the apparition of a small woman in black skirt and white blouse, and the strong scent of perfume. Double Eagle restaurant and Peppers grill are both in the same building.

Down in the dressing rooms is the scariest place in the theatre. The dressing area with just a curtain as a door has very different temperatures in certain places. There is a broken mirror, which ALMOST always never works. Creepy all over. All you have to do is see a performance to witness the haunting of Mr. Shuler. Very cool.

After one such excursion, no one from the Juliet troop survived. A tower with a clock was built in their honor and the letter ‘J’ has not been used since.

In the camping areas around the lake you can still find many miners carts, lanterns much of it untouched. There is a house in one part that many people camping in the area have reported strange lights coming from as well as sounds. “I thought there were a bunch of kids goofing off” claimed one camper. “It sounded like a party with music, lots of people talking and gunfire.” Later this camper discovered the only other people in the area were three adult campers and a border collie.

Ruidoso Downs – Hale Lake – Eyewitnesses report many strange activities in Hale Lake Just outside of Ruidoso Downs. It is said that this is where a Settler, Indian dispute first took place.

Other reports include War Paint on their vehicles. Vehicles dieing in the middle of the night, and starting up in the morning with nothing apparently wrong with them. Illuminated Gates have been seen, as well as many reports of a man wearing all leather on horseback that many have thought they run over only to look back as the dust cleared to see him in their rearview mirror. The dreams that people have while camped there are probably the most interesting aspect of the whole place though.

There have been numerous times night shift staff will see ghosts out of the corner of their eye only to disappear when they turn to get a better look. Beds have raised and lowered by themselves without anyone at the helm operating the bed. Linen closet doors would open on their own as one would pass by. When the hospital first opened nuns operated it and would cook brownies for the patients. The nuns are long gone and do not work in the hospital any more, however their have been several sightings of the nuns cooking in the little kitchen area in the hall on the second floor.

On the other hand, the problem causing spirit has never been named because the associates prefer no contact with that spirit.

Alvin – Harby Jr. High – This place is teeming with weird things. During the Galveston Hurricane of 1900, some bodies were buried where the school was built. Teachers have reported seeing the faces of people in windows. Also showers in the locker rooms will turn on without anyone in the locker room.

Amarillo – Gebo’s – Formerly Bonanza Supermarket – back in the 1980’s , before Gebo’s ever opened a second store, a supermarket called Bonanza was there. people say that an employee there was killed in the meat department one night. Present day, stories of the ghost haunt Gebo’s.. Moving items and misplacing them at night… since then, the employees try to avoid night inventory. In the morning, things would be out of place… Lots of employees have seen what the ghost has done.

Amarillo – Tradewinds Airport – Rumor has it that back when the place was a private air strip, a woman caught her husband with his mistress in their private plane and killed both of them then committed suicide. This would explain the distinct smell of perfume, which comes and goes(even in the strongest breeze) Also strange lights( like a plane gearing up) can be seen coming from an abandoned hanger. From this same area the sounds of arguing have been heard but there is no one there.

Andice – Blue Light Cemetery – Babies cries are heard accompanied with the feeling of being watch and a blue light, has also been spotted.

Andrews – Shafter Lake – Just north of Andrews, Texas, west of Highway 385, is the original location of the county seat of Andrews County, Shafter. It was named after a Union Army Soldier of the same last name. The town was almost completely wiped out by a smallpox epidemic around the turn of the last century, possibly sometime before 1910. Up until about ten years ago, the cemetery where the victims were buried was located on the near edge of the small lake (which comes and goes as it pleases), but the bodies were moved and reentered elsewhere. Legend was that a “lady in white” haunted the graveyard, possibly the reason for its removal. Sometime during the fall of the year, you may also see a troop of Confederate soldiers and their horses galloping across the lake, usually during a full moon. Most think it is General Shafter and his men, who did patrol that area before it was settled, trying to escape Comanche Indians pursing them. By the way, the lake wasn’t (and isn’t) always there. It just appeared sometime in the forties, according to my mother, who lived in the area from 1948 on. The water is very salty, not good for anything, and there is no explanation for its being there at all.

Many residents from Anson and the near town of Abilene have gone to witness these phenomenal lights. The cemetery is located going towards the country. The lights are viewed by driving down the dirt farm road equivalent of about a half mile or more. As you drive closer to the cemetery towards the lights they disappear. As for the actual story for this occurrence, is unsolved. Local myth says that this light is the ghost of a mother carrying a lantern looking for her missing child. The child had left the house on cold winter day and was lost and froze to death. The mother’s spirit still searches for her child.

Aquilla – Lavanot – there this really old cemetery that’s back in the woods, its a historic marker but you have to go through a field to get to it. but once you get back there there’s an opening in the trees were you can see into the field around you. well if you flash your lights toward that opening then you’ll see this 18 wheeler-diesel (w/o a trailer) coming right at you. If you don’t leave right then it will come to you.

Aquilla – trains on the invisible railroads – There used to be a railroad track here. A long time ago the city burnt down twice because of the trains throwing sparks, so they decided to just take up all the rails. Well every now and then around 12:00 midnight you can here the train.

The whole area around it was a ranch, and that’s where the family lived. The murders happened in the 60’s or early 70’s. There are two stories; the first being the family had a retarded son they kept in the cellar, but not abusively. He lived down there, had everything he need, bathroom, bed, television. There is a large walk in freezer down there too. Apparently he murdered his parents and kept the bodies in the freezer, and eventually died himself. The second story is that The kid that lived there wasn’t retarded, and after his parents died of natural causes lived there. It’s said he was a pedophile and a child murderer and would kill children and hide their bodies in the freezer. Right now it’s zoned for commercial use, so companies keep buying the property with plans to level it and put a building there. About two or three weeks later, they’ll sell it. Reports of a family who bought it and started to renovate it. New shingles, new windows, all the graphite on the outside is gone, but 3 weeks later, all work on the house stopped. Right now there is a fence around the property, and the road has been lowered, but you can still see it. – March 2007 Update: Burned down Summer 2006

Arlington – Arlington High School Auditorium – A boy committed suicide in the drama room and if you are alone there in the room you can hear a boys voice even though nobody is there it is in the backstage area of the stage you can hear him talk as if he is reciting something and than just stop a lot how James died he was reciting a monologue and shot himself. Also if you do not leave him a seat on opening night to each place in the auditorium it has been known for plays to go bad very quickly so the theatre crews always leave him a front row seat empty

Arlington – Bowie High School – It’s rumored that a man was either killed during the building of the school or was a custodian there, and we have nicknamed him “Leonard.” He lives in the catwalk in the auditorium, and has reportedly thrown small rocks onto the stage.

Walking the trail one can still hear the sobs and whispered prayers of the men and some women who walked there last steps here.

Arlington – River Legacy Park – Screaming Bridge – One night after a high school football game a carload of kids were driving fast on a country road just outside of the park. Coming to a narrow bridge over the Trinity River they met their fate when they did not see another car coming hitting it head on. Both cars erupted into flames and plummeted into the river below. All involved were killed and since then the road has been closed and can only be walked to through the park. Legend has it that if you find the bridge you will see the dates of the occurrence and the names of the deceased glowing as tombstones in the water and if after that you still dare you can sit in the middle of the bridge on the night that it happened and at midnight you will witness a heavy fog coming up from the river as you see headlights approaching from either side of the bridge.

Arlington – River Legacy Park – The Hobo – Near the park are some railroad tracks that run through an area called Mosier Valley so the park is a good getting off place for the train hoppers since the train has to slow down here.

Wondering to the edge of the woods from where he had been sleeping he saw a car parked and what appeared to be a man and a woman fighting. Walking closer he saw the man hitting the woman and the woman knocked unconscious. Opening the door he grabbed the man but in the struggle that ensued was shot. The next day the woman was found wondering through the park delirious and half naked but the hobo laid dead next to where the car had been.

Security guards at night also have problems locking the upstairs door because “ANNIE” feels playful.

She states, “My father was a “craftsman” carpenter as some people call it and he built a lot of things around Austin and loved nothing better than to make things in his shop which was our garage. People would see the garage door open and stop to talk to him and he would help anyone who needed anything made. He was 74 when he died in his shop doing what he loved. He left me and my Mom in debt and a rundown house so we could only afford a cremation. I am a big believer that people should be buried where their happy doing what they loved. So me and my friend took my dad to home depot on brodie, mainly the garden section because their were people around. I let my father’s ashes go their because he had a love for making things and helping people. His name is Herbert, nick name herb. I am a little freaked out about this because I wanted to do right by him by placing him where he loved to shop and run up his home depot credit card!

On the other end of the building is a deep, ruined bomb shelter from the early 40s ar 50s. In the basement is a very negative feeling, very hard to describe. It is usually locked, but occasionally residents break in and wander around. It is mild there though. The bomb shelter has been locked for years but last year was broken into. Recently we discovered what appears to be a false wall in there, because the lining on the wall ends (no one noticed before because of the lighting and the junk all over the floor).. The negative feeling from the basement is present in the bomb shelter too, but grows as you near the false wall. Dorm residents are curious to explore but don’t want to get caught. No one knows any specific stories, but we all speculate it would have to deal with someone dying in one fo the hospitalrooms. No ideas about what’s behind the false wall, though. – Febuary 2005 Correction:there was never a morgue. The first floor of the original wing was the campus clinic which did have a couple of overnight observation rooms, but the city hospital was (and still is) less than half a mile away and the campus clinic was never used for long term care. The clinic closed when the “short wing” was built in the 60’s, and the clinic was renovated into rooms (which is why those rooms resemble the short wing rooms more than the rooms above. The false wall in the bomb shelter and it was a bomb shelter at one time it still had emergency rations (not sure if they are still there) covers an alcolve that to hold air filtration gear. A shaft behind the wall runs into the main basement.

Until one evening while the mother was sitting in the living room watching TV and her little girl was playing in the hallway with a small toy, she saw her daughter toss the small toy across the hallway into the front bedroom. The door had been left open. Then she heard her daughter talk to this imaginary friend to “give it back”. To the mother’s surprise, something or someone tossed the small toy back to her daughter.

On another occasion while sleeping, she felt the touch of little fingers playing with her toes or gently tugging at her blankets. The apartment where the “suicide” took place is constantly vacant. Tenants seem to come and go and never stay longer than three years. And when the apartment is occupied, the “occurrences” diminish and or are none existent until the apartment is vacant again.

At all the theatres everyone has seen trash cans roll up ramps and cold spots through out the buildings. The ghost only seems to mess with you if there is nothing “fun” going on. – June 2008 Additional information: A Former employee that worked there in 1994 and 1995 as a projectionist. The story is that a woman named Dorothy fell out of an upstairs door that they used to load food and candy before the theater was bought by Cinemark. Apparently she broke her neck and died. The doors are still there, but have been padlocked shut. There is a 25 foot drop-off straight to the ground outside if you stepped through the door. When he worked there, you could say “Dorothy” and a film would always break within the next few minutes. They would always hear foot steps on the upstairs catwalk when we first entered the building in the morning when nobody was in the building. They would often see reflections of things in the windows in front of the projectors, but nothing was there when we turned around to look. Also, she enjoyed turning off lights, unscrewing light bulbs, and closing all the doors when you were upstairs alone.

Victoria – Old army barracks by the Airport – a shadow of a little boy with a basket ball saying “come play with me” has been reported. – October 2007 Additional information: Footsteps, voices, and strange red glowing lights have also been reported.

He was murdered on Sunday while walking up the church steps in the nearby town of Goliad. Since then his ghost has haunted this serene patch of live oak trees.

Waco – Baylor University – Some of Elizabeth Barrett Browning’s original works are kept in the old Library on campus.

Waco – Baylor University – Baylor Residential – Formerly listed as Brooks Hall – At Baylor University, the oldest college in the state of Texas, exists a mysterious phantom on the abandoned fifth floor of the oldest dorm on campus. Violin music is heard in the dead of night and chilling sightings of a cloaked figure in top hat and cloak staring down and illuminated by an eerie candlelight have been widely reported by spooked residents. Investigations have wielded little fact but the enormous amount of eyewitness accounts and spine tingling sightings have given the legend a grand following. One night the shattering of glass was reported as the phantom peered down and paused his playing and in a fit of apparent rage struck a window. Come morning when level heads prevailed and the storm of the previous night had passed, no damage was found. Still the unpredictable toiling of the phantom have attracted audiences in the witching hour in hopes of catching a glimpse of the mysterious floating candlelight that often hovers from room to room and then vanishes only to appear in the other wing of the building. One unsettling account recollects the viewing of a noose and dangling of a shadowy corpse after the phantom finished the evening’s mournful serenade. Still more haunting is the episode on record of the lights failing the building and an ungodly tapping and cold sensation filtrating the respective doors of the fourth floor of the building. Only one resident dared investigate the unwelcome visitors calling. It is claimed that he peered into pitch darkness to find the horrific silhouette of a cloaked figure in a top hat turn and stare him down through the darkness and calmly vanish out of sight as he glided parallel down the corridor, needless to say it was not pursued. The university has failed to satisfy rumors of hauntings and has downplayed the events for close to half a century now. The Victorian styled villain who roams the corridors of the uninhabited floor and occasionally mingles with the living loves to make an entrance, the hoax is to elaborate for any collegiate prankster and the tradition has endured for too long. Perhaps the only explanation is that the phantom is ultimately unexplainable. – October 2007 Update – This old hall was recently torn down. A new Baylor residential college has been built in it’s place.

It was assumed that when laying the cement floor he must have fallen in and no one saw it happen. People who are new to the building are told about this ghost and the name given to him, “Jason.” (for no real reason)To this day there have been many reports from people who travel down there for old documents and books. He will travel with you up the old steel elevators and you will get chills that will go all over your body. It feels like you have walked into a cold spot. And as soon as the chills start they will stop again. He will turn on the lights after they have been turned off (maybe to read so old books). He has also been known to help people look for books that they can’t find. Books will mysteriously fall off of shelves and it will be the book that you were looking for. People say that they can feel him watching them work when they work down in “the dungeon”. Many people have seen him out of the corner of their eye, but as soon as you turn your head to look at him he’s gone again.

The most pronounced story is that of the Jesus Tree (cut down in the early 1990’s). This tree with the image of Jesus on the crucifix was said to “bleed” a red substance from its trunk when they cut it down. There are twelve trees evenly spaced and equal in stature directly following where the Jesus Tree stood. These are said to be the twelve apostles. When you travel farther down the road (eastbound), you come to a very curious looking estate. this ominous looking estate is actually Morefar Golf Club. This is believed to be a cover for something else. Word of links to the Satanic church have been bantered about. The main entrance has a sign reading “Back ‘o Beyond”. Interesting welcome for a country club. Immediately following Morefar, and across the street is Farrington Pond. There have been several stories about people driving off the road, into the pond, claiming to have seen “something”. The undifinitive story of this pond is that a young lady, on her way to a High School Prom, went off the road and into the pond. She was said to have drowned. When the moonlight hits the water, people have been known to see an image in a prom dress on top of the water, dancing – alone. In 1988, a young man named Dean, was found in his car on the side of the pond (just off the road), dead from gun shot wounds to the back of his head. The two men who were responsible were captured within a week. It is unknown whether this has anything to do with the spirit of the pond, but, if nothing else, it adds to the eeriness of the road.

Brooklyn – Most Holy Trinity Church - January 2006: New information has been issued for this haunting, the submission has been rewritten.
The church was built between 1882 and 1885; the school, built in 1887, is located on a site that had been a cemetery from 1841 until 1853. The church’s first two pastors, priests who had been Vicar Generals of the Brooklyn Diocese, are buried in a crypt under the narthex of the church. There are mysterious passageways on the “triforium” level of the church where it is said that only priests are able to enter. Originally posted for this haunting it was mentioned Bishops where buried here, this is untrue. NO BISHOPS WERE EVER BURIED AT THE CHURCH. The church property covers an entire city block; it is said that there are false closets leading to tunnels throughout the church and convent. Mysterious sub-basements and bricked-up doorways suggest concealed passageways. It is said that run-away slaves used these areas to hide when escaping to the North. A number of people have died while praying in the church. The church’s second pastor built the church’s rectory in 1872; he died in the building while sleeping in his second-floor room in 1895; the same room is used as a guest room by the priest who live in the building today. No-one wishes to take up permanent residence in the room in which the priest died. Guests have claimed to have heard strange noises and the sounds of someone walking back and forth while staying in the room. It is said that loud footsteps can be heard up and down the four floors of stairs at late hours of the night. Dogs have been known to stare, as in a trance, at the stairs leading to the basement and into the dining room when it has been very cold in the house. It always feels like other people are in the building, even when someone is alone there. The lights in the school gym have been known to go on and off without any reasonable explanation. At night, it is said that voices, and the sounds of people walking back and forth, can be heard in the school building. George Stelz, the parish sexton and bell ringer, was murdered in the vestibule of the church in August of 1897; while there was a prime suspect in the crime (a man who had been a parishioner of Trinity, and who was eventually executed for a different murder), no-one was ever convicted of the Stelz murder. The blood of Mr. Stelz, as well as the bloody hand-print of the murderer, are said to be still on the wall in a stairway leading to the bell tower. It is said that the spirit of Mr. Stelz roams the building and will do so until the crime is solved. The name of Mr. Stelz appears in a stained glass window he had donated to the church twelve years before his murder. The bells to the church are said to ring sometimes without explanation; it is believed that the ghost of Mr. Stelz rings the bells in order that people will not forget him after all these 109 years since his murder. For more information about the church, Check out the Trinity web site at mhtbrooklyn.org

Newburgh – Plum Point Condos – The story goes… There is a rather large building, in which is now know Plum Point condo’s, in Newburgh NY that used to be a all boys Christian school. One of the nun’s molested the boy & killed him then put his body in the wall and covered it up well (being there was already construction going on inside it was a good cover-up, he was just reported missing) Then about a year later strange things would happen that drove the school to shut down. For about 10 or more years now they have been trying to make it into an apartment complex because there are condo’s all around it, and every time someone goes in there to work, a hand was cut off by machinery, the machinery would break for no apparent reason, etc.. And many people have said they have seen the boy. – October 2005 Correction: The above submission is the “popular word about town” regarding the information on our site, however, most of it is not true. Unfortunately, this same description regarding Plum Point on many websites. Probably cutting and pasting from this site. A visitor to our site reports the following: “Before the condos went in, there was a large mansion (complete with detached servant’s quarters.) It was originally constructed for a family who met an untimely death. The mansion then became a home for wayward girls for many years and eventually an orphanage of sorts, accepting children who were not only parentless, but had no where to run. This is where the rumors of the molestation occurrence sprouts from. The molestation may be true, but in all my research and hearing of rumors, I have never heard a report of anyone being buried in the walls.
Eventually, the mansion became a hotel, had an addition put on both sides of the original building, and then was abandon for many years (The room numbers were still on the doors during abandonment.) The property changed hands uneventfully several times as Plum Point started building north of the property. The condo construction went fine UNTIL there was finally a developer who had funding to begin working on the mansion itself. By this time, condominium construction was creeping around all sides of the mansion.
They developer intended to knock down the servant’s quarters which was a small home just a few yards to the south of the mansion. Heavy equipment was brought in, but would break down every time they attempted to start the job. Eventually, the fire department attempted to burn the house down and failed. if I remember correctly, an article appeared either in the Newburgh News or Times Herald Record regarding this, however I cannot be certain enough to state this as fact. There was no record of a worker losing a hand in the information I remember seeing. Eventually, the building was torn down by hand.
Currently, Plum Point Condos have engrossed the entire area all the way down to the beach of the Hudson River. The mansion has been rebuilt and turned into several condos and stands proud today, however, a shell of its’ former glory.
Regarding the haunting phenomenon, there have been many reports of a women/girl holding a baby in the same 2nd floor window of the mansion looking out at the cars driving by. No one really knows if the ghost was a resident from the girl’s home, or the original owner, other than to say the girl appeared fairly young. I witnessed this ghosts myself while walking by the mansion one winter night.
When the mansion was abandon, doors would frequently slam open and shut while trespassers were walking down the narrow hallway. Rumors regarding this range from a single boy ghost to a group of mischievous boy ghosts having fun with their “living guests” As “their” actions never appeared or felt threatening according to witnesses. A female ghost was frequently reported coming down the sweeping staircase in the main hall. This was heralded by a noticeable temperature drop in the area.
Trespassers inside the mansion itself while it was abandon, who were cut by objects inside the house, would bleed for unordinary amounts of time. I witnessed this myself on several occasions. In one case, a friend of mine was cut by a piece of black fireplace marble. He bled for the rest of the day and into the evening despite the cut appearing to be small and superficial, my friend being in perfect health and treating the cut properly.
A crying baby could often be heard down by the riverfront near the railroad tracks, just over the hill, a short walk towards the river from the mansion. Trains used to frequently stop on this section of tracks. Rumors said that many men who rode in the caboose of the freight train would often hear a baby cry. When they would get out to investigate, they would never be able to find the child. When they would approach the area where the crying was coming from, the crying would start from somewhere else close by.
Condos have now been built on this spot (formerly a very swampy area) and I do not know if this phenomenon continues today. People currently live in the mansion, however, the current state of haunting phenomenon there is unknown as well. “

Sally Townsend, allegedly John Simcoe’s lover is said to still haunt the house. Her former bedroom is always cold, even in the summer the curator wears a warm wool vest in that room! Paranormal investigators have said that whatever is in that room is not happy. In October of 1999 a volunteer was working on the property when the garden door opened and a man came out wearing a dark wool coat with brass buttons. First it was strange to see someone wearing that clothing, second the building was locked, and third the alarms were all on! In march another worker saw the same ghost materialize by the staircase. Once with the bottom half of his body missing, and then again full-figure. The ghost is believed to be Michael Conlin, an Irish immigrant who worked as a servant in the 1860’s. In the upstairs of the former servants quarters moving shadows have been seen when no one else is in the house. In that same area the smell of roses has mysteriously been sensed. The spirit of a servant woman has materialized and walked into the kitchen. In that kitchen the smell of apple pie has also been present when ghosts want to make themselves known. The submitter was extremely privileged when they smelled the strong scent of cinnamon-apple on their way down the stairs near the kitchen. When they got down to the bottom of the stairs they could smell the strong scent of something like cinnamon rolls or apple pie! Another area that is said to produce some interesting smells is the front foyer. The smell of a non-existent stove has been sensed there as well as the faint smell of a smoking pipe. At one time this was the kitchen area. The former museum director Andrew Batten says he has sensed at least 5 different entities and something in Sally Townsend’s room.

During its operating life, there were 54 lives lost from accidents and mistakes. In 1922, a mine shaft which can travel 300 feet underground, and is preserved today, was taking five miners down to the bottom of the pit. Its cable snapped when the shaft cage was still 200 feet from the ground. All the miners lost there lives (the records of the incident still exist). Today, about five out of ten people who visit the museum, and have had a look at the abandon shaft, say that they feel very sad. Some say they can hear the sounds of people yelling out, as if they are falling. Also, strange things happen to some of the steam locomotives preserved at the museum.

Two museum members have seen him, and they refused to ever work in that area ever again. Mr. Brown is seen on the third Sunday of each month, five out of ten times.
