I stumbled across this board after getting interested in EVP from the movie White Noise. In the last week or so I have spent a lot of time reading so
much info here on so many fun topics. Enough about me here is the story.
It was about 8 years ago and I had just graduated from IU. My sister and I rented a house in "old Louisville" KY. Needless to say it was a very
old house, probably built in the mid 1800's.
I never have believed for one second that ghosts exist. I come from an athiest family. To believe in God, ghosts or anything to do with the after
life just doesn't happen in my family. Not that were bad people, but that after life stuff is for the uneducatied (or so I was raised).
As soon as we moved in little things started happening. First I have a small sculpter made of some metal of a lady holding a cresent moon above her
head. One morning I came downstairs and part of the metal moon was just broken off and missing. I attributed it at the time to my sister or one of
her friends doing it and not admiting up to it.
I guess I should tell you ofcourse there were all kinds of funky sounds too. Footsteps on the staircase. Footsteps on the upstairs hallway. All the
noise seemed to come from upstairs.
Next about 2-3 days after the sculpter breaking, I was again walking down the stairs and there was a landing midway with a large stain glass window.
Right in the middle of the window a piece was missing in the shape of the cresent moon. Not a match to the sculpter, but definatly a cresent moon non
the less. The house next door was all of about 12 inches away from our house so in my mind I couldn't tell how this could have been done from the
That night my sister and her alternative (for lack of a better word) friend and myself were talking about the two incidents and creepy sounds. ( She
is 4 years younger than me and I loved messing with her and trying to scare her). I start going on and on about how the house must be haunted and
trying to guess how many ppl could have died in the house since it was built. Well my sisters friend startes walking around saying B/S that she can
feel a presence. She then starts to follow the prresence she feels upstairs. Her and my sister go upstairs and come back down a few minutes later.
My sisters friend starts going on and on about how my bedroom had really bad spirits in it, and I should avoid the room. As she is saying this the
thing that holds the fireplace equipment (poker, broom, etc) falls over and we all kind of jumped. I ofcourse start laughing as they freak out.
Now about 2-3 days after that (we have now been living in the house 2 weeks) my sister is in the kitchen making dinner for herself. We again start
talking about what has been going on. I say " Ashley the only reason I can think of for everything that has happened is the house is that its
haunted". As I am finishing the statement, right in the middle of the last word, two cabinets above the counter top fly open and dishes come flying
out onto the floor. My sister just screams and runs across the room and jumps into my arms. I must have stood there holding her and staring at those
cabinets for 30 seconds.
For hours that night I kept trying to fill the cabinets with the wooden bowls, tuppaware, and crap that was in them and trying to recreate how they
could fall out naturaly. There was just no way to do it without having the cabinet doors stuck open about 4-8 inches so they could fall out. Even
then if they fell they landed on the cabinet and not the floor.
The next day we started asking neighbors if they knew anything about the house. Well we found out a big one. About one month prior to us moving in
the man that lived there died in his bed in his sleep. Didn't ever find out much more than that. Thats all we needed to know. We weren't going to
be like those ppl in horror movies and stick around to have more bad stuff happen. We didn't spend another night there and promptly moved out.
I still drive by that house and every time I do I think about all of this like it just happened yesterday. I would like to stop by the house and talk
to whoever is living there and see what they have to say.
My sister withen a couple of years has gone back to not beliving in the after life. As time goes on I too have started to go back to my old ways of
not believing in anything paranormal.
Not sure why I shared the story, I guess maybe I don't want to go back to not believing in ghosts and want to hear some stories from some of you.
Thanks for listing.
