Our Family Ghosts

Our Family Ghosts

Our family has been located in this area for five or six generations now, and it all started in an old house that stands today, though abandoned, on a certain hill right in the middle of south Parkersburg. This old house was originally a church, and there are at...
The Haunted Frederick Hotel

The Haunted Frederick Hotel

Let me say this, I have always believed in ghosts, spirits and the supernatural but had never had the experience of such an encounter other than sensing someone was standing behind me and no one was really there. You know, the standard stuff, which was until earlier this year. I...
Morgan House Part II

Morgan House Part II

My sister wrote in earlier about our house and how our dead grandfather is haunting it, but I am convinced that there is another presence in this house. A female presence. This is my story. One night, it was about 1 o'clock in the morning and I could not...
Hauntings In Jones Spring

Hauntings In Jones Spring

My family lives in a very old house, 100 years old or maybe a few years less. Back in the day, people called it the Wheeler Mansion because it was the biggest house around. I'm not sure about what happened during its construction, but something happened in this house...
Dad’s Token

Dad’s Token

Around 1947 my father and mother built a two story frame house in the hollow of Grant County, known as Iman Hollow. Back then there was no electric running to the house, until several years later. Kerosene lamps, candles, and flashlights were the source of light after darkness fell. I...
Fence Row Stand-Up Man

Fence Row Stand-Up Man

July 1992. Near midnight. Rural Pocahontas County. Seebert Road. A friend and I, along with a lifeguard from the swimming pool at Watoga State Park, were returning to the campground at the park after driving to Marlinton for some late-night snacks. Earlier in the day, I'd lost my car keys...
Black Figure

Scarbro Trailer Haunting – Fayette County

Back in June I moved into a trailer with my boyfriend, his brother, and one of my friends at the time. At first everything seemed pretty normal but my boyfriend and his brother told me about how they believed there was something following my boyfriend around. They said it...
Empty Grave

Empty Grave

I use to live in Wayne County WV. I grew up in a holler. At the head of our holler was a cemetery and my friends and I would walk to it a lot. We were there so much that we knew every name on the tombstones and we...
Forgotten Souls Of GC&P

Forgotten Souls Of GC&P

I spent a few years working in a home for those with MR/DD. People familiar with Wheeling will know the house. It's on GC&P Road just past the Troy Corporation on the left side of the road. The site the house was built on used to house an old farm....
A Haunting On Mud Fork (Island Creek)

A Haunting On Mud Fork (Island Creek)

So many things took place at my childhood home, so many that it's hard to know where to begin. I'm 27 years, married w/child, and moved to a different part of the county, however, I feel as though I am still visited on occasion. I suppose I should narrow the...
Mount Vernon Cemetery

Mount Vernon Cemetery

Where is the creepiest place to be at night, you got a cemetery, so why did my friends and me go there, who knows, but we did. We decided that it would be fun to go and wait to see if we could see anything. I had always heard that...
My Mother’s Visit

My Mother’s Visit

I do not consider my dream to be anything out of the normal, but you can be your own judge on it. All I know is that a dream saved my sanity. My mother suffered terribly and died of cancer when she was 45 years old and I was 26....
