There are many (abandoned) buildings that behold ghost stories, or well, paranormal ones. I’ve always been interested in such stories, including abandoned buildings. Sure, the question will always be the same: are such stories true? Multiple buildings have been visited by paranormal scientists, and they said it was true. I’ve researched multiple stories last year, for no real purpose. In several parts, I’ll be telling all international paranormal stories! Today: part 9!
- The Molly Brown House (Denver, Colorado)
This is where Titanic survivor Molly Brown (Margaret Brown) and her husband James Joseph lived. This remarkable Victorian house has now been dedicated to her. The ghosts however, seem to try to get the attention to themselves. Both Molly and her husband were seen in the house, along with the smell of her husband’s tobacco pipe and cigars. A different entity appears in the dining room and seems to like moving chairs around the room. The couple seems to have a child that died at a young age. Oh, and not to mention the curtains moving on their own in this child’s room. Molly’s mother, just as a former servant, were seen as well.
2. Levy House (Reno, Nevada)
This house was built by William Levy in 1906. Employees occasionally reported to hear pacing footsteps on the top floors, though there was no one upstairs. Also, sudden and inexplicable cold areas were said to suddenly appear. This happens in the rooms on the backside of the house at the second and third floor. Items appear at random places after they disappeared. People experience a sudden headache in both the basement and attic, even the stairs. They also get the feeling to be watched. Paranormal experts have been in touch with three children. A boy died due to a disease somewhere in the early history of the house. Though, he hasn’t been seen ever since, so it’s expected that he left to the other side. There were also two girls, ages 9 and 10. One of them is some sort of fireball when it comes to an energetic entity. She’s the one walking on the second and third floor and even outside. There’s also a woman, the victim of a fire that started in the basement. And there’s this man who’s connected to one of the young girls. He has been described as a protective father/uncle figure. This man might feel responsible for the death of the active girl.
3. Kelton House (Columbus, Ohio)
It was built for Fernando and Sophia Kelton in 1854. It stayed in their family for about three generations. Several members of the Kelton family are said to still haunt the house. Both Fernando and Sophia were seen in the house. Sophia greets the guests and Fernando makes sure they bump into him before he disappears. Their eldest son died when he was eighteen years old while fighting for the Union. He has been seen inside and outside the house, wearing his uniform. The last Kelton to live in the house, Grace, an interior decorator, was also seen and felt throughout the house. Items disappear, but will eventually be found in strange places. Furniture seems to be rearranged throughout the house and continues to do so whenever the employees put it ‘back in place.’
4. The Sallie House (Atchison, Kansas)
This house once belonged to a doctor. However, it has an awful sad story. A young girl named Sallie died in this house during a failed appendectomy. Her spirit has never left this house. When a family moved in somewhere in the 90s, this little girl began to cause disaster after disaster. She threw photos from the wall onto the ground, played with electrical devices and left a trail of toys behind, belonging to their own child. These activities escalated rather quick, to a dangerous extent. They thought it was this little girl that their child saw, but a paranormal expert told them it was a middle-aged woman who caused all of the violence. All her evil was targeted on the male owner of the house. She left scratches on his arms, deep enough for them to bleed. She even caused bruises to appear. This entity pushed him and had almost thrown him off the railing of the stairs on the second floor. After that incident, the family decided to flee the house, fearing for their lives.
5. Sauer Castle (Kansas)
It was built in 1871 by the Austrian Anton Sauer. It sadly was a traumatic location for this family, as many tragedies happened. Two people committed suicide while a third, small girl, drowned in the pool on the terrain. The original owner, Anton, also died in this house. All those deaths turned this house into a true horror house, filled with spiritual sightings. Many voices were heard, either laughing, yelling or crying. Doors open and slam shut occasionally. Visitors report to feel watched whenever they walk around and objects seem to suddenly move or make lots of noise. Almost as if they’re shaking or rattling.
That’s it for part 9! Which story have you heard before? And which one seems the most ‘creepy’ to you? We’ve got one more part to go!
