Asheville High School
Ghost saw on surveillance camera at Asheville High School in Asheville, North Carolina. The camera caught a shadowy figure moving about in the school's rotunda. The school is 100 years old they seem to think it is the ghost of a little boy.

Urbana High School in Urbana, Illinois, something walks the hallways. They think it is a teacher who fell in love with a student and then hanged herself, but no one really knows. This ghost hangs out in a tower at the school.
Del Mar High School in California is haunted by a boy who was murdered by his best friend in 1942. They hear his screams.
Earl Wooster High School is haunted by very, very upset fan that shot himself on the football playing field. Visiting athletes will trip over nothing as if some unseen hand has tripped them.
As you can see Asheville is not the first haunted school.
My Family Stories
I come from a family that talked of the ghost as if it was an everyday thing. My aunts, there were 5 of them, would hide in the bushes and jump out at us when we were kids, with white sheets over their heads. All of the cousins, my brothers and sisters and me would go running away screaming. My aunts are in their 80's and 90's now, not all are still living. It was a fun childhood. I don't think kids enjoy that kind of thing now. It never hurt us.
We were recently visiting with my aunt and uncle. She told the story again of the new house they had just built. She was sitting in the living room one day and she saw a man in gray shirt and pants (work clothes) walk in and walk down the basement stairs. She told people about it and they said it sounded like the farmer that use to own the land. She never saw him again. My uncle told her not to tell that story. He said they would never get the house sold.
My Husband's Story
My husband and his friend were bird hunting earlier one morning on a back road way back in the woods. They were driving along when they suddenly saw a ghostly white figure cross the road. My husband's friend said: "Did you see that." My husband replied he had then, he said, "Let's get out of here." They never found out what it was and never went back there again. My husband explained back in the woods from the spot was an old homestead which was falling down and no one had lived in it for years. The only place he thought a ghost could have come from. He said it looked just like a ghostly figure.
We don't see this friend often now, they have moved out of the state but when we do he always brings up the ghostly figure. He has never forgotten about it.

Most Haunted House
Summerwind located in Vilas County on the border of Wisconsin and Michigan.
The legend of Summerwind known as Lamont Mansion: This haunted mansion was the most haunted house in Wisconsin at one time. It's nothing but ruins now burned to the ground in 1988. It has been on the TV show A Haunting, located on West Bay Lake in Wisconsin. It's not far from us and I would like to go one day to just get some good pictures, but I'm sure it's blocked from anyone getting close to it.
Summerwind was a beautiful place on a lovely lake and people tried to live in it, but it was so haunted no one could last long.
It once belonged to the Secretary of Commerce to president Hoover, Robert P. Lamont. It was even haunted at the time that Lamont lived in it. He shot at someone he thought was an intruder, but it wasn't, it was a ghost.
It was purchased in 1916 by Lamont once was a hunting lodge like so many places in Northern Wisconsin. Rich and famous stayed in these lodges. Mafia also owned many places in this area at one time.
Families after the Lamont families lived in it but didn't stay long. Many homes in this area are only summer homes and I'm sure that is what it was for most of the families. There are not many of the summer people that come up here in the winter.
After all it was a fishing lodge in the first place I’m most of the time the Lamonts and the Keefer family were only there during the summer.
Arnold and Ginger Hinshaw bought it for their home, but couldn’t live in it for long.
Raymond Bober bought it to turn it into a restaurant. Workers didn’t like to come there to do the work. He finally gave up and had also experienced some of the hauntings. Every time the house riveted back to Mrs. Keefer. A group of investors bought it. Then a family from Canada bought it. It seems none of the families could stay long because of the hauntings which went on in the house.
When poor old Summerwind burned from lighting in 1988 there could never be another family in it. The land still stands with no building on it.
Mr. and Mrs. Harold Tracy of Chicago now owns it.

"Amityville Horror' house back on the market, for $1.15 M: It doesn't look like such a horrible house. It looks pretty nice. I wonder if the creepy little boy is still in there. This picture was supposed to have been taken by a newspaper, but then it's also said it was taken by ghost hunters and not found until years later.
Below is a picture of the house looks like such a nice place to raise children in. So serene or is it? Would you live there?
There have been so many movies on this house and TV shows.
Old Farm House
We live in an old farmhouse now. I have been woken to people talking in this house. It sounds like a man and woman and they're carrying on a conversation. I can't understand what they say, but they are talking. I have thought the TV was on when it wasn't. I have gotten out of bed to check the TV and find it's off. Both of the late owners died here. She died in the kitchen and he died outside. Shortly after we moved in here their daughter died of a heart attack. She was a young woman, way to young to die. They are all buried at the cemetery down the road. If I look out my front window I can see the edge of the cemetery.
I have also felt cold air hit my face like someone is blowing the air at me. There's nothing I can say for sure just what I have heard and felt sometimes.
We have a cat and when he was a kitten and we first brought him home he never relaxed. He was always acting like he saw something I couldn't see. He'd sit up in bed and watch the door or he’d hang on top of my head holding on for dear life with his little claws watching the door. He's better now but still jumpy at times.
Ghost Child In Crypt. Look at him/her long enough it's like he/she is looking at you and the eyes show up more.
