Been seeing a lot of scattered threads, with various, and awesome, stories of things people have experienced in their lives, and thought a thread to
bring them all together could be fun. I spent months, literally, on that "creepy stories from the outdoors" thread on another site, and I know ATS
members have plenty of stories of our own! So, time to share. I will start with one from my family, and add others as the thread progresses, and
invite all to do the same. One per post, please, to make them easier to read, and everyone play nice!
Alright, my first story:
My mother told us tales of a haunted house that her cousins lived in for a time. Large, older house, with a history of ghostly encounters. This
would have been in Tennessee. When her cousins lived there, the story was that some guy had murdered his wife in the house, on a night when there was
a thunderstorm. The way Mom told it, whenever a storm hit, you could hear screaming, and the attic windows (attic being the claimed murder spot)
would fly open, even though boarded shut, and things would fly around the room. The flying objects were reported at other times in the attic as well.
At various points in time, people claimed to see ghosts, including one that looked like a Civil War era soldier, and another that looked like a dog
that resident had in the past, that was dead. The house was investigated at one point, due to all of the reports, with people checking for wires,
cameras, or whatever. Nothing was found. They even considered someone hiding in the place, playing tricks, but again, no evidence. After an
investigation, so we were told, when all had exited the now-uninhabited house, the place caught fire, for no reason ever found, and burned to the
So, there's one story! Not a lot of details, because it's been LONG years since I heard it, but that's what I can remember. Please share your own
as well, even if they are posted elsewhere. Don't limit this to ghost stories, either - anything weird is welcome. Odd sightings, weird stuff
inside or outside, whatever. Think of this as one nice clearinghouse of ATS weird tales.
