I made an account here primarily to talk about and share my personal experience with the home I grew up in. Please excuse me if I'm posting this in the wrong place. I grew up in a pretty poor house, we didn't have a lot of money, and we didn't really have anywhere else to go. So I spent the majority of my life from about 1999-2018 living in this old house. The house was originally built in 1931, a year before the town was even established, and had five poorly made additions added onto it. While living there, many scary things happened that we all tried to write off... But the fact that none of it has happened since moving is why I finally think its time to talk about it. Upstairs was the worst part of the house. Shadow figures were frequently seen dashing up and down the hallways, two rooms at the end of the hall which nobody stayed in for quite some time, frequently had these figures in the doorways or dashing to and from these rooms, the room I stayed in I believe to be a hot spot as well, the figures would stand in the doorway and watch not only me but anyone who had the guts to stay in there... Frequently I would feel as if something was standing right behind me as I tried to sleep, nightmares were extremely common, on multiple occasions toys and possesions moved by themselves, usually, it would be a stuffed toy as we had many of them. One night I felt immense sadness and my eyes were fixed on the hallway I thought for sure someone was going to walk in very sad. I could sense it. I couldn't sleep for hours but when I finally did I just seemed to pass out quickly not really remembering when or how. There was a standing mirror my sister had that when she moved out, was placed out of the way in the closet of my room, she claimed to have seen many shadow figures in it, and I always thought it to be my imagination but it always unsettled me when It was in my room... We are a god-fearing family and we all pray nightly, so I really didn't want to believe that creepy stuff like this was actually happening... One night while praying, I even heard demonic laughs and taunts coming from directly in front of me before the sound slowly got distant as if it had walked away. Currently, the house is still full of nearly 20 years of old our junk we have yet to move, sadly, the poorly made additions have caused major water damage and the place is being taken over by mold literally regular house plants will not even grow in the home, not even when we lived there they would all die... Occasionally we go back to the house to rescue some things and bring them here to be cleaned up, however each time it is a very somber, chilling experience and staying too long in the house provides a paranoid feeling. We also have not packed any of the stuffed toys that were in that house for fear of whatever is in that house coming with them... I would have not ever believed in things like spirits or demons or believed they could ever be a threat, especially not to those who believe in God, if it wasn't for living in this house...

Thank you for sharing that account with us.

Did your family move mainly because of the activity there? Sometimes, hauntings are house or land related. Sounds like that may be the case with this since nothing has happened at your new place. Glad your family has found a peaceful place now.

I am going to move this account over into Paranormal experiences for you, Electrik It's a better viewing spot and your account will be easier to find for others to view and leave comments.

Hi and thanks. We moved primarily because the house was becoming too full of mold it was unhealthy to stay there. It wasn't until after we realized just how many scary things went on that we wrote off that stopped as soon as we moved.

Welcome to the forum Elecktrik,You never know what may have gone on in the old isolated home before to attract that much negative energy.I like older homes for their character but some have a dark past that's hard to shake or maybe something has taken up residence while it was empty.With your place it sounds like bad stuff may have gone on there to me.

My dad always told me the original house was a standard small 2 story ww1 house. But I think that's just his guess cause we can't really any info about the place aside from the fact it was built around 1931, and that's only cause you can see the house far off in a pasture in a panaramic veiw of the town from the 30's. It is just a small house, it's hard to see, but it's in the same location.

Out of curiosity, you mention mold. Did the activity start prior to the mold or after the mold came along?

That's a thing that defiantly has been considered, all the mold could be the cause of the weird happenings as the house is fairly toxic. That's kinda like the - logical explanation to it all lol. But the interesting fact, I didn't even know about people seeing Shadow Figures till like last year lol I thought it was just in our house

I'm not discounting your sightings at all. I have just recently had to become a bit of a mold expert while dealing with a relative's home. I'm looking at does the mold trigger paranormal activity as well as hallucinations? I've seen a lot of reports over the years similar to yours and I've been wondering if it's a double whammy kind of thing and not just one or the other.

Welcome to the forum. Thanks for sharing your story. I wonder if there were electrical towers near the house too. Sometimes in rural areas they bring in the electricity that way. It could cause high EMF (electro magnetic frequency’s ). That can cause strange feelings and even hallucinations. Just a thought. I’m guessing it was a haunted location. I would just leave all the old stuff there. You risk bringing an attachment to your new location. If you do have something valuable you really want cleanse it with salt and prayer. Do keep us posted.

It's not exactly rural, but small town. And I don't think there are any electrical towers that close. (Well I know for sure one but that's fairly recent and on the other side of the village lol)
