I got 3, kind of. One from when I was a little kid, woke up in the middle of the night and looked out my bedroom window and saw, what I would describe today, as an apparition of some sort. Floating across our front lawn. Freaked me out, and didn't sleep the rest of the night. Can still see it in my head like it was yesterday.

The second was not a visible sighting, but I was visiting my great Aunt in Royal Oak about 25 yrs ago. She had an upstairs to her house that she rented out to a single woman who was away for the weekend. Middle of the evening my family is sitting around talking after dinner, and we hear what sounded like someone dropping a box of bricks on the floor, and then someone running across the floor upstairs with heavy footsteps. Then nothing. My dad called the cops because we thought someone broke in. He went upstairs to investigate before they got there and found everything locked up tight. The guys did their job upon arrival, and found the same thing. Nothing out of place, no broken windows, or unlocked locks. Completely unexplainable.

The last has happened at my parents house 3, maybe 4 times. I have seen it one of these times. They have a bookshelf in their living room, near the entrance to their foyer/mud room and it collects wallets, keys, etc. What happens is, an item sitting on a shelf will just come falling of, and end up like 5 feet horizontally away from the bookcase. Now I can understand if something is precariously perched, and just happens to fall cause a truck went by or whatever, fall off, and be next to the bookshelft within a foot or so after a bounce. But these things are NOT even close to falling off, and are 5 feet away from the base of the damn thing when they do. Like someone is swiping them off the shelf, yet no one is there. When I saw it happen, I went to the bar to try and forget cause it freaked the $hit out of me.

Ex girl/freinds house scared me so bad I about shit myself.When she got home the next day I asked about it and she said it happens,dont worry,no big deal.

Im sitting on the coach watching a movie with a freind and hear foot steps in the attic,pacing back and forth.Then it stops and we hear some rocking or squeeking going on.I never slept that night.After I got home from work the next day me and my freind curt went in the attick and found a bunch of boxes,and a rocking chair,along with other junk.

When Kelly (homeowner) got home we told her about the noises and she said not to worry.She said that is Mildred and she doesnt hurt anyone.Apparently Mildred hung herself in the house because her husband was cheating.

Kelly still lives in that house,and I have not spent the night since.

When I used to own Nextels, my computer speakers would start making weird noises right before getting a call. Very freaky!

When I was a kid we moved into a house that was just down the street from where my mother grew up. Well the house had been empty for some time and the upstairs was locked off. The very first night my oldest sister got up and went to the bathroom , when she came back to her bed she saw a dark figure standing in front of her bed. It totally freaked her out and she just froze there. The dark figure disappeared and she got in bed but she kept hearing a woman calling out the name Charles all night. In the morning she asked if anybody had heard the woman calling the name Charles all night long. My mother said that the previous owners had both died in the house and the man's name was Charles Maxim. My mother knew both of them and grew up helping take care of Mrs. Maxim when she got sick. We would hear people talking, walking, laughing, and moving things around constantly in that house. I saw an apparition several times go past my bedroom door . A small child had also died in the house and my toys would constantly get taken out of the old cedar chest I had as a toy box and placed on my bedroom floor. We could hear something playing with my toys as we ate dinner almost every night as my bedroom was directly above the dining room. We lived there for 8 years and the activity was constant. We had some people refuse to set foot in the house again after experiencing activity of their own . The house still stands and has quite the turnover of owners, most people don't seem to make it past 6 months to a years there. I loved it there and would move back , my mother has even thought about selling her current home and buying that place back. We never felt threatened but we were sure they were there with us . We had to move as the daughter wanted it back but she ended up selling after a couple years herself. Maybe because my mother as a teenager had helped care for the old couple they took to us and didn't want anyone else there who knows.

My buddies dad was the caretaker at lost lake boy scout camp in Farwell. It was originally owned by Henry Ford's secretary in the 20's and 30's. Apparently, Ford had some shady dealings with the mob, so the house was built more like a fortress. What appeared from afar to be log exterior walls proved on closer inspection to be 3-foot-thick concrete that had been carved to look like log. The perimeter of the house was surrounded by a moat, comple with machine gun turrets mounted to the roof. In the basement, a moving bookshelf hid a secret passage that lead to a nearby lake, providing a swift getaway to anyone being chased by mafia hit men.
I went there to stay a night during their offseason on my way north to deer hunt. It sits in the middle of a 3000 acre chunk of property and we were the only people around... Literally for miles. I used a bathroom at the top of the stairs before I took the "tour" When we came back up the stairs the bathroom faucet was on full blast, hot water steaming up the whole room. They had a ghost named George, and things like this happened daily. I was freaked out, and didn't stay. There have been several paranormal "experts" that have vistited the house and wrote some articles on their findings. Very cool place if you ever have the chance to go check it out. I think they have events throughout the year where they are open to the public.

over in Japan in the 90's and had a picture taken of me climbing a tree at night, drunk and stupid. got the pictures back from being developed (35mm) and there was a white fuzzy "shadow?" that was hanging down from a branch beside me.
Showing the picture to my friends relatives, they said it was a curious ghost from an old hotel that burned down not far from there, Mt. Yumihari if i remember right, and they dkidnt seem to think it was strange...cultural differences i guess.

Good stories.
Cant say Ive ever seen anything but Ive been in a few places that just felt "off". I found them creepy. My wife and I went to Jamaica and took a tour of a house that is supposed to have a history of hauntings for the last century or so. Nothing creepy about it, just a big old house on an old sugar cane plantation. The dungeon under the house was a little bit strange though. I relate to the story in red. When I was 16 I worked at a KFC restaurant that many of the employees and a few managers through the years said was haunted. I was skeptical and really never paid the stories too much attention. The biggest claim was various employees and managers would hear their names called when closing the place down for the night. I was told this happened so much they were beyond fearful and were annoyed with it. I worked alot of long hours, double shifts and closed the place down late at night often and never heard a thing. So I was quite skeptical until one morning I was just entering the rear kitchen door and I heard something. It was a while before my shift and there was nobody in the kitchen. As I entered in I heard a clang noise and the sound of something metal scraping the tile floor. A pair of serving tongs sliding across the floor quickly caught my attention. After observing this the shift manager who was standing at the other end of the kitchen, asked me if I saw what just happened. She then told me that she was walking into the kitchen just before me when she saw the tongs slide across and fly right off the prep. table as if somebody flung them. Im not sure what caused what we saw but those tongs had some momentum and didnt simply fall off the table straight to the floor. A funny theory some of the "believers" had was all these "events" were related to this one manager. Apparently most of the stuff happened to her or around her. I think her wide, bulging eyes and crazy hair had a lot to do with their suspicions too.

THE HORRIBLE HAG OF DETROIT..............
http://motorcityblog.blogspot.com/20...f-detroit.html

anyone ever hear about this? I think it was from the early 60's.
I have seen a news paper article on this , but don't recall if was the Detroit News or Free Press. One of the lady's my wife worked with had the article, and said when she was in school her bus used to go past the house .

Fact or Fiction ?
