It'll be ok.  Just keep a camera rolling and nothing will ever happen.

I'm pretty sure the first scariest place would be in front of Sandusky, not behind.

Slightly haunted.  Must be one of those time-share hauntings.  It is haunted for two weeks per year during the summer, one holiday and 6 weeks during off season (schedule allowing).

I'm sure the wiring is just slightly not up to code

December submissions go into the next year's contest, and it's at most the third scariest place in the state.

The owner is a friend of mine.  I was at his house the day he got married.  The house is beautiful, but there was always discussions about weird stuff happening in the house.

I once stayed overnight in the basement of the Church of Saint Immanuel in Los Angeles.  There were rumors that the church was haunted, and sure enough, at about 3am I heard a loud metallic banging noise.

It turned out that the noise was coming from the old water heater.

stratagos: I'm sure the wiring is just slightly not up to code


The first house we owned was built in 1896. The wiring was a farking disaster. all solid copper covered in crumbling black fabric. Different colors? who needs that?
It also had the occasional creepy noise going on.

The last house I owned was a hundred years old.  After a decade living there I discovered that the electrical of the entire second floor was fed off a single 100 year old strand of copper wiring that the previous home owners were too lazy to replace when they renovated.  The burn marks around the wire made me wonder how the entire house just didn't burst into flames at any moment.

/and it had a ton of creepy noises - which was awesome
//most due to constant resettling of the house and trees planted too close

Dunmore?

I've been there. If that is where you have to live in the afterlife, maybe those religious nuts and their idea of "limbo" isn't all that far from the truth.

I don't think that was a water heater...

If you have chairs, dishes, wineglasses thrown at you for no reason, either stop drinking or break up with her.

You mean like flies filling up the room and a gruff, evil sounding voice that says "GET OUT!"?

How much more haunted could this be? And the answer is: Dun. Dunmore haunted.

I've lived in 6 haunted houses in PA, and outside of the occasional ghostly backrub, no oddities.

We did have a painted over can lid, nailed up on the pantry ceiling, where a previous owner had shot himself through the top of the head. Every so often, a stray dog would make the back porch home for a few years, but none of them ever barked. only howled.
We kids would call each dog Barney, after the owner.
All the dogs were good with kids, too.

One ghost could be heard clomping up the (sealed) stairway for servants, although the actual stairs had been removed in the 1800s.

Some people know good marketing when they see it.

Others listen with bated breath for the next line of the scary ghost story.

Cool Scene Bro (from our last house)

My 3 year old:  Daddy, there is a man in my room telling me to get out of his house.

Me: Start taping boxes Mrs Hobbs, I'll be on realtor.com

I'd buy a haunted house if it was cheaper, I'd just assume there might be a foundation problem, or it was settling.

If you go into your bathroom, close the door, turn of the lights, turn on the shower and look into the mirror and say Sandusky three times, Jerry Sandusky will appear and rape the hell out of your ass. This is true, it happened to the kid's cousin's best friend who lives down the street from me.

All the knob and tube stuff was still there but mercifully, no longer in use.  Someon at some point had done a small upgrade.

Goes without saying, that house in Phinny, Greenlake, Queen Anne, neighborhoods, etc here in Seattle would go for $700K+ all day long haunted or not.  At 150K, you would have people lining up around the block to buy it even if it was infested with anteaters that fed of the crabs from Lindsay Lohans discarded underwear

"...And they say that at night, if you listen very carefully, you can sometimes hear a ghostly rhythmic slapping sound. MUAHAHAHAHA!"

No, no, no. Wrong.  Tell Ghost Hunters the leering phantom of Rod Serling blows smoke rings at you every time you're pooping. Say something, but don't play down the haunted angle unless you dislike syndication residual monies.

Why would you buy that house?!?? You're walking into a classic spectral bride situation!
