My Family went and stayed at Cabwaylingo state forest in 2015 for the first time ever. First off we were from Ohio and didn't know what to expect. When we arrived we were staying in cabin #7, but there was a plumbing problem. Six hours later we were moved...
Unidentified Footprints

Unidentified Footprints on the Roof

The Little Blue House

The Little Blue House

So this story didn't happen to me personally, it happened to my dad's brother and sister-in-law and their two kids, however, I've heard it told so many times I feel like I was there. Anyway, it was around 1983-1984, my family lived in this little blue house in Guyandotte, WV. To...
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...
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...

Shepherd College – Gardiner Hall

Mothman

Mothman

"Mothman" is perhaps one of the strangest creatures to ever grace the annals of weirdness in West Virginia, or even in all of America for that matter. Even though this mysterious and unsolved case has nothing to do with ghosts... it would be remiss of me not to include...

In the summer of 1965, when I was 15 years old, 2 friends and I saw what may have been a Bigfoot. We were spotlighting for whitetail deer near Deer Run, a few miles from Franklin, WV. Back then it was legal to spotlight deer, as long as you...
