During the Crawleys' occupation, a young child is said to have been fatally dropped down the stairs, a maid to have fallen from the balcony, and a stable boy to have been burnt to death. There are reports of ghostly figures, strange lights, automatic on and off of lights, invisible forcefields, terrifying sounds and animal mutilations in this house.

  • The George Stickney House, United States: George Stickney built this house with rounded corners to facilitate the free roaming of spirits and to talk to the spirits of his dead children. It is believed that corners trap the spirits they call upon, which can anger them and cause grave danger to anyone that is in its path. Hence there was only one corner in the house at ninety degree and oddly enough, George met his demise in the same corner with a terrified look on his face. George and Sylvia held many seances in the home. Sylvia continued to conduct large seances in the home in the upstairs ballroom after her husband’s death. It has been reported of seeing figures moving about, hearing footsteps and strange voices. Now it is a Police House and police claim sudden turning off the lights, doors opening by themselves and door knobs turning suddenly, sounds of footsteps and strange noises here.

A little girl from the house ran into the tunnel with fire caught on her clothes. She collapsed and died in the middle of the tunnel. Another legend says that a little girl was burnt in the tunnel by her angry father when he found out he lost his children to his wife in a bitter custody battle. Another story revolves around a rape and murder of a girl in the tunnel. Whatever the story, any one if lit a fire standing in the middle of the tunnel, the fire gets blown off and the screaming of a little girl is followed. It is also noted that the middle of the tunnel is quite cold, even on a hot summer day.
