Weirdness At Weirton Medical Center

Weirdness At Weirton Medical Center

For five years, I worked 3-11 in the Housekeeping department at Weirton Medical Center in Weirton, West Virginia. There were several ghosts in that building, and I have a few short tales here. My ghost tales are amusing now, but weren't at the time. My job at WMC was...
Hurricane Creek Road – Roadside Ghosts

Hurricane Creek Road – Roadside Ghosts

My encounter happened in the winter of 1983. I was a senior in high school during this time. I was picking up a friend of mine who was visiting her boyfriend who lived on Hurricane Creek Road in Putnam County, WV. It was early evening and already completely dark...
The Baby

The Baby

My mother-in-law used to live in a house at the junction of Rt. 7 and Rt. 20. Her youngest son was only a few months old and she would push his crib against the wall by the fireplace, so he wouldn't get cold in the wintertime. She would walk into...
Ghost Of Cherry Creek Dip

Ghost Of Cherry Creek Dip

I myself never encountered this, but I have always heard the story as I was growing up, and my brother who is 8 years older than me, claims to have witnessed it himself. There was a young couple who had just married. On their wedding night they were driving a...

Haunted 22 Mine Road

Being a Surveyor in my past career, I had come across an area that I wanted to share with my wife. A forest Fire tower and a microwave unit on one of the most remote areas in Southern WV. In surveying the area before, and probably just as true...
Chapmanville Grade School

Chapmanville Grade School

Chapmanville East Elementary School is very spooky first of all. It's a very large and exceptionally old brick building and it stinks inside. The school has a lot of character to say the least. I knew a teacher that worked there very shortly. She said that sometimes if she was...

Houses On Haunted Hill

Dead Cranberry Coal Miner Still Walks The Tracks

This story takes place in Cranberry West Virginia, just outside of Beckley. When I was young growing up in Cranberry it was a favorite past time for all of the boys to walk the train tracks to Skelton and back. We would walk on the rail as long as...
UFO in Rainelle, West Virginia

UFO in Rainelle, West Virginia

In 1979 in the small town of Rainelle, W.Va, I along with my brother and twenty other people stood near the railroad tracks around noon. A silver Galactica-type of a ship about 90 yards in length slowly moved towards us. It had a lot of windows and alien markings...
WV Wendigo Creature

WV Wendigo Creature

This may seem farfetched at best, but try to have an open mind. Based on some of my own experiences, a little research on the topic, and reading several stories here from the Cryptozoology section, I believe a Wendigo-like creature lives in the deep woods of West Virginia. Basic Info The...
Haunted Safe House

Haunted House On Lee Ave

I never believed other people’s ghost stories, until I experienced my own in 1986. I am a 31-year-old man who usually thinks rationally, but I still get the chills when I think of what happened to me and my two friends, Alan and James, that cold winter night. My friend...
The White Wolf of Whitlock Farm

The White Wolf of Whitlock Farm

I guess a lot of people know about Wolf Creek near Fayetteville because it drops into the New River Gorge in a series of spectacular cascades. But I don't suppose many know that the creek heads up in the plateau near Oak Hill and that it was named because...
