8 Signs That Your House Is Haunted

Unusual and strange sounds in the middle of the night? Slamming of doors even when there’s no wind? Your dog, barking at nothing? Seeing unexplained shadow? These are the signs that should not be casually ignored, as they can mean something deeper. Sometimes, a human is not able to see the spirits, but an animal is. Thus, if you have a pet and its behavior has changed suddenly, do not ignore this. The people who do not care about the previous owners of the new house they are shifting into, or the people who do not get an adequate background check of the property that they are moving in – usually get in trouble. Sometimes, the low price of the property may not be the jackpot you have hit, but a warning sign to run away from there! Here are 8 signs that your house may be haunted, and […] Read More

Iowa’s Frightening Malvern Manor is Haunted by Dark Entities and Ghosts of the Mentally-Disturbed

Every once and a while I’ll discover a haunted location that completely captivates me, even though I’ve never stepped foot inside. Malvern Manor is one of those places. There’s something about the shabby white building located in Malvern, Iowa that screams haunted. I often find that when buildings have gone through many incarnations they have that type of energy about them, as if the ghosts still residing within its walls are all fighting to have the building remembered for what it was when they were alive. Built in the late 1800s, Malvern Manor was a family-owned hotel that served as a comfortable place for traveling salesmen to rest their heads after long journeys across the country. For two dollars a night you got a warm bed and hot meals, and because of its close proximity to the railroad, the hotel was a success and booked solid nearly every night. Unfortunately, as […] Read More

A Wailing Ghost In Brooklyn

XAVIER ORTEGA Sr. Editor at GhostTheory A cold darkness permeated Brooklyn’s east side one night in 1894. Under a bright moonlight, the cobblestone streets glistened as a thick fog poured over them. A fog that made its way down the hills surrounding Brooklyn’s Ward 27. An area surrounded by cemeteries that were almost as old as the dark, wet dirt that fills them. On these empty streets, five young women found themselves ankle-deep in a coiling fog. In a hurry, they decided to cut across an empty lot near Knickerbocker Avenue. As the ladies made their way through the lot, something made them stop dead in their tracks. Something white up ahead. The wafting fog grew more and more as the women shivered together. Just then, a hysterical cry ripped through the fog, sending a bolt of lightning down their chilled spines. Before any of them could move, much less utter a […] Read More

The Haunted House On The Hudson

If you keep driving past New York City, away from the blaring lights and sounds you’ll eventually drive past the small town of Nyack, New York. There, at the end of a listless cul-de-sac there stands a two-story rambling affair at the edge of the Hudson River. Inside, a dark history hides within the walls. The house on 1 LaVeta Place had been a boarding house and a private residence since it was built in the early 1900s. When a couple named George and Helen Ackley moved into the house in the early 1960s stories began to circulate around the town of strange goings-on inside the house; otherworldy stories from Ackleys themselves. The Ackleys shared the house with her children and grandchildren and had been reporting to their neighbors phantom footsteps, knockings, doors opening and slamming, and beds shaking violently with no possible explanation. A decade later, the family […] Read More

Haunted by a Fire Spook

A case of spontaneous fires in a home in the town of Woodstock, New Brunswick is the subject of the following article published in the Bangor, Maine Daily Whig on August 10, 1887: Woodstock, N.B., is greatly excited, says a “Boston Herald” dispatch, over the strange and inexplicable scenes which have been enacted in a little, two-story frame house on Victoria street, occupied by Reginald C. Hoyt, a picture frame dealer, who does business on Main street, a few doors above the Wilbur House. His family, consisting of his wife, five children and two nieces, are in a state of mental fear, dread, and anxiety, and will probably vacate the house at once. Between eleven o’clock, Friday morning, and noon, Saturday, no less than forty fires broke out in various parts of the house, and bedding, furniture, window shades, clothing, and various household articles were partially destroyed. Only untiring […] Read More

Haunted Pub For Sale But Buyers Beware at Haunted Asylum

If one of the items on your bucket list is owning a haunted British pub (wait a minute – aren’t they ALL haunted?), then grab your checkbook and head to Hurst Green in Lancashire where the Punch Bowl is up for sale. It’s said to be haunted by Ned King, a friend of fellow notorious 1700s highwayman Dick Turpin, who was captured at the Punch Bowl and hanged from one of its trees. While Turpin’s ghost seems to be everywhere, Old Ned stays mostly at the Punch Bowl, where he and his horse Black Tarquin have provided the usual strange noises and other paranormal disturbances. Exorcisms were performed there, most recently in 1942, but locals say he’s still around and will be sold with the building. The Punch Bowl is a popular stopping site for haunted tours but is no longer open as a pub. If you lose out […] Read More
