9 months ago I started looking into buying a new house. I had looked at a handful until this one house had finally caught my eye, it was a gorgeous
Victorian style home in the historical district of where I now live. When I had first gone into the house with the Realtor we took an average tour of
the home like people generally do. The place was in rough shape in some areas, considering it had been abandoned for some 5 years and built in 1851,
so I already knew some of the work that would be needed...
As I was getting ready to leave with the realtor it struck me that we hadn't gone into the basement, so I asked him to go back in so I could check it
out. We walked down the stairs and took a quick walk through of the basement. When I was heading back to the stairs to get up to the first floor I
noticed that underneath the stair case was the red painted shed type enclosure, this really caught my eye and drew my curiosity. I really liked the
shed because i felt like there was something special about it. I thought it'd be great for all my tools being that it was roughly 16x12 shed.
A few weeks had passed and I put my bid on the house and it was accepted a few days later which really surprised being how fast it was accepted...
Another couple weeks passed and I was officially the owner. I had began planning what renovations we were going to knock out first considering the
budget of everything I wanted to have done to the place. Well long story short when it comes to the remodeling, we completely re-gutted the master
bathroom, plaster repair on all walls, extensive yard work, and completely re-gutted the kitchen. When the plaster repair was being done we found that
there was a note written into the plaster that dated September of 1865 the note was to weathered and was not legible, all I could make out was the
name signed at the end of the (which was Robert) and the month and year.
Renovations had begun slowing down as the spending was going through the roof, so I took so time off of working on the house and decided to try and
find out some of the history of the house which yield nothing. I could not for the life of me find anything out about the house other than the year it
was built which was 1851... Come to find out the according to the date it was originally built the city hadn't even been founded yet, which makes no
sense to me. No one had any answers for me, not even the city themselves.
Shortly after this is when I started to notice things. I was home alone one night (in this new house) when I was going to the bathroom which is
adjacent to the stairway to the basement. I thought I kept hearing a cat growling. I thought nothing of it and shrugged it off as being a neighborhood
cat outside of the house. But the same thing happened the next night so I went down stairs into the basement and was walking around and heard this
growl coming from behind me, I turned and saw nothing, but when I had turned I was eye to eye with the door of that red shed. I went inside and the
air felt stagnant and calm. I felt like this shed wanted me and I wanted the shed (no pun intended) it was weird and that was that for the night...
About a week later me girl and I had begun discussing ideas on renovating the basement, It boiled down to an argument about the shed getting torn down
out of there, I was completely against it and will not allow it. She asks me why I like the shed so much and I didn't know what to say because I
don't even know why I like this thing, it'd be an eye sore to anyone else especially when you are trying to have a nice full finished basement.
A few days later I was walking down to the basement to put some paint cans down there and I found myself just staring at this shed. I snapped out of
it walked inside the shed, remembering that I though I had heard a growl come from there a few night prior. I was standing in the shed just looking at
the walls and ceiling when I noticed that it looked like there were scratch marks on the inside of the shed door, this took me by surprise but at the
same time I felt anxious and excited which I can't explain... As I was standing down there I heard my lady yelling at me from up stairs so I ran up
to the third floor and she was saying "you're an ass" and I didn't know why. she said I was trying to scare her which I was actually two floors
down. She told me that when she was walking up the stairs she saw a face at floor level at the top of the staircase and it pulled back real quick as
if it was a kid playing hide-n-seek... It freaked her out and I just laughed denying that something like that had happened..
That night I went to bed and noticed my bracelet was gone which I always wore, that thing never came off not for showers or anything else It had been
on my wrist for over two years with out ever being taken off. I Got out of bed and looked high and low for my bracelet and could night find it for the
life of me, this made me upset because it had a lot of sentimental value to me... I couldn't sleep now because I couldn't stop thinking of where it
could be, so I decided to clean stuff up. I got some of my tools and headed for the basement to put them away in the shed. I put my tools ups on the
dusty old red painted shelves inside the shed and laid on the floor staring at the ceiling trying to figure out what could have happened to my
bracelet. As I was laying there I felt very calm until I heard that growl sound again, this time coming from outside of the shed, although this time I
felt terrified. I laid there very quietly, quiet enough I could hear my own heart beat. A heard a cling, like something had fallen right next to my
ear on the ground and it freaked me out because I was being silent and just listening. I hopped up real quick and saw that my bracelet was laying
right there on the ground next to where I was laying. I was in disbelief because I was down there every night and would have surely seen it. So i put
my bracelet back on close the shed door and when I was walking up the stairs I heard the growl again only this time coming from the shed I had just
walked out of.
I told my lady what had happened and she told me that she had also heard growling when she was in the bathroom adjacent to the staircase to the
basement... It's just weird and I don't know what is going on, all I know is i have this odd attraction to this shed as if it somehow apart of
To this day I still hear the growl and the pull I feel from this shed. I don't know what is going on... I'll give updates if anything else happens
because things are still happening.
Have any of you had odd attractions before?
Ask me questions too if you'd like, in case there is anything I didn't explain clearly!
