The Bleeding Floor

The Bleeding Floor

The house our grandmother was born in was the site of a grisly murder that resulted in the last public hanging in West Virginia history. The murderer was John F. Morgan who took an axe and violently massacred the widow Green and her three children. The purpose of our story...

I grew up in Gallipolis, across the Ohio River from Point Pleasant. In high school I found an old scrapbook of my mother's with several dozen clippings on the Mothman: I was fascinated that something "neat" had happened so close to the sleepy little town I loved, and I...
Houses On Haunted Hill

Houses On Haunted Hill

I live in the city of Elkins, located on the Tygart Valley River. This town for over a century has been the economic hub of south central West Virginia. On the Davis and Elkins College campus are the sprawling mansions, Graceland and Halliehurst. Both mansions where built in the...
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...
The Basketball Ghost

The Basketball Ghost

Last Halloween, four of us decided to do something different for the haunted holiday. We all piled into my boyfriend Brian's Blazer, and decided to go to Stoco Junior High. We had heard about some of the ghostly rumors, but nothing with any substance. We ended up getting lost, so...

In the southeast corner of Harrison County, WV there is a small little community called Johnstown. It has had a long history of travelers and merchant activity. This particular story takes place not long after the Civil War. It was a time of traveling peddlers who went from place to...

There's a house right above our house on a hill. I have been told stories since I was 27 I'm now 47, but I know what really happened, because my mom and this lady were best friends. There was this lady Ms. Kaptis and her husband died over some...

This is an old story told to me by my mother. I believe it to be true, because my mother is a Christian and never lies about anything. It all happened a long time ago, before I was even born. My mother and dad were getting ready for bed. My...
Strange Encounters At Pipestem State Park

Strange Encounters At Pipestem State Park

I do not know if I am the only person to ever see this, or if others have seen such things also. I am a seasonal employee of Pipestem Resort State Park. The supervisors prefer to have guys work the night shifts whenever possible. For some reason, they think that...
Tea Time

Tea Time

This is entirely true. It was the summer of 1994, and I was 13 years old. I do not remember the city because it was a short visit, and I am from a large town in Florida. Telling this still gives me chills. My father is half Cherokee and was...
The Bride Ghost

The Bride Ghost

I work at Cabel Huntington hospital in Huntington, WV. My encounter happened on 5th Street Hill just after 9 pm. It was raining and I came upon a girl in a white gown with dark hair. I hit my brakes and she just vanished into thin air. Well, I have heard...
Sheepsquatch

The Croup

This is not a personal encounter and I probably would never recount this story if I had not seen something on this site entitled "The White Thing". This sparked my interest. I don't know if my story relates since I left WV years ago and have never heard this...
