Can you point out the scratches in the pic, please? And you also mentioned scratches on the ceiling of the shed as well? Would be nice to see a picture of those as well as the bracelet in question. And can you speak to the sentimentality of the bracelet, please.

to me what appears as scratches are above the lock on the inside of the shed door, sorry for the quality of the pictures but it is somewhat noticeable... it could be something as simple as just erosion from being very old.




as for the bracelet I don't have any pictures of it, but it was originally my great grandfathers and it has just been passed down, he wore it when he was in world war 1.

Something just occurred to me when I saw your photos. Our family home had a similar type room in the basement, but rather than call it the shed, we called it the cedar room. Cedar repels moths, so woolen and fur items were always stored there in off season. I loved that room. It had shelves just like yours.

A couple things I noticed in the pics and may be wrong about. Is the red on the inside of the door as well as the lock? If so, I would wonder why?

Go away! We're liking the story. Don't ruin it.

Correct the lock is on the inside. And the style of lock is some sort of drop in pin so it is not unlock-able from the outside

Get rid of it and get somebody to do a whole house cleansing. I love old stuff, but the shed is more than just an eyesore apparently. Let it go and move on. Maybe you could have a seance with an ouija board before you dismantle it and sell the lumber.

I've heard stories of people and experiences with ouija boards.. Not my cup of tea after hearing experiences shared from others...

In time the "shed" may, or may not go. I find it useful for the time being, but time will determine whether it will stay or go.

What would scare someone, so much, that they'd lock themself *inside* a small shed, *inside* a basement....


It's obvious the lock wasn't put there for a cat or a dog...only hands could manipulate it.

Did this not cause some questions with you. I've built 5 shed buildings in my life, gardening storage small buildings. Never...ever...have I even considered putting a lock on the inside.

Honestly I hadn't thought about until Vasa Croe hit me with that question...

Good thinking though, maybe to keep away from an attacker? but then again it would be fairly easy for anyone to break their way in there

What are the interior walls of the shed facing. What are their exteriors facing, is what I mean. Is one of them, since it's a basement, facing an earthen wall. If so, pull away the boards to see if there is a tunnel on the other side.

If there is a tunnel or escape of some sort...that would make sense of the lock on the inside of the shed.

draw a pentagram on the floor and sit in the middle of it with an Ouija board, sacrifice a chicken and say hail satan 3 times.

The inside walls which is two sides of the shed (on the inside of course) are concrete... not busting through those anytime soon

Have any friends in the forensics field. If so, see if you can get one to do a sonar reading of the concrete walls...

I'm having visions of Edgar Allen Poe come to mind.....

Maybe someone used it as a place to get away from his wife so he could look at his playboy mags.
Or to keep an animal down there until he could get around to stuffing it.
Whatever it was used, for it is like you say very unusual and dosent give off a good feeling.

Unfortunately i'm still fairly new to the area and haven't made many friends other than the people I work with...

I'm going to explore the attic this weekend and see if I can find any remnants of something, anything. Like I said I found pictures in the wall and a note written on another wall during renovations, so it wouldn't surprise me if I found something up in the attic. We'll see.

Very odd....I would actually lean towards there being a tunnel behind here also. The door being painted red on the inside as well as the lock being inside would lead me to believe that it would be a sign to stop and check before if coming in or being welcomed. Again...this could go back to a civil war era possibility....




A red door indicates "welcome," or "safe place," or "sanctuary." In many cultures, red indicates good fortune or warmth/safety

Interesting because I feel drawn to the room, and get a calm feeling from it. except for the bracelet incident... But if that were the case, that would completely contradict the growling noise.

It is possible that the room was somehow used as a safe haven in the past, and that the aura of safety was left behind and that is what you are being drawn to. I often feel auras like that in an area, and I am surprised, but they do tend to persist in their last state even without people around.

My vote is to keep the shed, I like things like that. If you repaint the house you could always repaint the shed.

According to Vasa Croe and some of the research he did it was a somewhat active area during the civil war, which the house was built just before the civil war. If I had to guess it was safe house maybe along a slave route or something like that... I don't know though because i'm still having a hard time find records on the property.
