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...

This is a story of an old house, a haunted house with a murderous past. I've heard stories by the people who have lived in it. My mother was one. She said that there was an old room that they used for a junk room, and at night it...
The High-Heeled Phantom

The High-Heeled Phantom

It was not a day for paranormal occurrences. The summer day was so bright and beautiful that I had felt the need to spend most of it outside in the swimming pool. Being sixteen and having the summer all for myself was wonderful. Especially when I was home alone. After...

Ghost In The Bathroom

Ghost In The Bathroom

I was about 6 years old when this happened to me. It was a normal night and cold in the house that we stayed in, as usual. Because I was so young, my mother allowed me to sleep with her in her bed. The way the master bedroom was set...
