Warning In A Dream

Back in the spring of 2002 my mother-in-law began to show signs of a terminal illness. She was losing weight and wasn't doing well at all. We tried to get her to go to the hospital but, she was very stubborn and refused. My husband and I talked and...

The Floating Candle

There are no friends like the ones you have between the ages of 10 and 13. So many experiences, so much fun. Hepzibah is located between Clarksburg and Shinnston, West Virginia. Raised here all my life, it has been a quiet community, one that is ideal in which to...
The Orkney Hollow Hanging

The Orkney Hollow Hanging

Every since we was little our parents told us not to go out of the hollow after dark, because a colored man was hung in the big beach tree for sleeping with a white man's wife back in the (1940's). When we became the ages of 12 and 13 we...

The House Built From The Streets

The House Built From The Streets

I was in the sixth grade, maybe ten or eleven years old, my family and I had moved into a house in Princeton. It was an older home, I am almost a hundred percent positive it was built from the bricks of Mercer Street. The town was a part...
Unknown Haunting

Unknown Haunting

My grandparents own the house that I have lived in my whole life because my grandparents rented it out to my mom. Weird things have always happened there. For example, when my sister was about twelve years old (she is now twenty three), she was dragged out of bed...
The She-Devil

The She-Devil

This story even leaves me a little bit skeptical, which is odd because I am a firm believer in ghosts and the like, but it is still a little hard to grasp. It is a story of an experience that my mother had when she was around 11 or 12...
The Visitation

The Visitation

To be perfectly honest, most of my life, I didn't believe in ghosts (or other supernatural phenomenon for that matter). I never DENIED their existence but I never acknowledged it either. A vacation in West Virginia, however, changed all of that. I and a female friend, who was a firm...
