Ghostly places @ Ghost Central (Winner of the Feb. 2nd 2011 hub-nugget's contest)

Updated on May 26, 2019

Everyone has their own ideas & beliefs, if a ghost exist or not. However I have had enough true experiences in life that I tend to believe more towards their existence. The two painted scrolls, pictured below, are posted at Point Lookout lighthouse on the East coast. They reveal a very vivid story of what many other people have already experienced. On television there are countless shows on this topic, however there are many more untold ghost stories everywhere out there. In Ludwigsburg, Germany there was a U.S. Army base called Flak Kaserne, which was home to both German & American forces from 1938 to 1991. In it's early days the German's had a hospital there along with it's flak anti aircraft guns, and a notorious Gestapo headquarters. Later the Americans moved in with it's transportation corps. When the Americans controlled it, they rebuilt the buildings for their own use, and the old Gestapo building became their finance section. The old vaults in the building were perfect for safe guarding the money. Part of the safe guarding included having a guard in the building 24 hours every day. There were many reports late at night of people on the upper floor yelling in German, however other then the one guard, the building was empty of people. The floors were all completely redone in ceramic floor tiles years earlier, but still there were countless reports of noises being heard of people walking on old wooden floor planks in the building upstairs. The guard never saw anything when they tried to see what was happening in the area where the noise was coming from. No one ever got use to these mysterious happenings, and a lot of the guards on night shift just remained locked in the front office waiting for the sun to rise again. At another army post in Nuremberg, Germany It was an outside guard that noticed a strange ghostly occurrence. This time he saw the ghost. As he was making his rounds on one very cold winter night, he noticed someone walking towards him. When he got near the motor pool, and got closer he noticed that it was a German soldier in uniform approaching him. When he got face to face with the German soldier and past him, he noticed something very wrong. The German soldier who was in full uniform never looked at him, and he didn't have a body below his waste line. No legs, or feet - nothing! But only the German soldier's top half was there as he continued moving away from him and finally disappeared into the night. Another story that comes to mind is a friend of mine moved into an old house. Shortly after he moved in he heard noises in the kitchen, and smelled bacon cooking late at night. He discovered later that the previous occupant of the house died in the kitchen while preparing breakfast. There are countless untold stories like this all over Germany, and the world about ghost. Everyone at sometime or another has put a set of keys or a tool down and turned around for only a second, to discover that when they turned back around that it's gone & not where they had left it. If you have an interesting story about ghost, kindly share it with us here.

I would like to thank each and everyone of you who voted for me in the Hubnuggets competition. It was really an honor to have been nominated, and thank you ripplemaker for giving me the good news. I can hardly believe that my little hub, which is about ghost, won with just 36% of the votes in it's category. They were all very good hubs, and all were very well written. I really owe my gratitude to all of you who voted for my hub, and thank you all so very much again for this honor.

      I enjoyed your hub. I also believe that some deceased people who have unresolved issues can't rest and their spirits will continue to be active

      until those issues have been dealt with.

      If you come across any stories about hauntings in San Jose, CA, besides the one you have listed, I would love to know about it. I know there are some about Hicks Road. My nephew and his friends had a scary experience there. They were filming at night up there and walking from the car they saw some large rocks with these, I'm going to call it iridescent, person shaped silhouettes on them. They thought it was weird but maybe some mineral, these are the quicksilver hills, so they went on. Then on their way back they didn't see the silhouettes so they went over to the rocks but there were no rocks. Scared the you-know-what out them. He came back white as a sheet.

      Thank you for adding my recent hub as a link here, much appreciated. I was always a sceptic until 2006 when I had a real live encounter with a Lady In White on a back road in Kentucky, next to a cemetery. I wrote a hub about the experience called "Graveyard of Lost Souls" it moved me later as I started to write poetry 3 more poems and one story, possibly all connected in a way to that meeting in 2006. Since then I've read much on the paranormal and now firmly believe in ghosts/spirits. Then I had this latest encounter on Summit Road and shared it as well. You have a wonderful informative hub here, ghosts are all around us, just like aliens who mostly like walk amongst us. Voted UP awesome, interesting and useful..

      Goof hub. I really don't know whether ghosts really exist or no; But there is an incident that happened with me about 15 years back. At around 4 am I opened the door for someone who knocked at it and was surprised to find standing right in front of me a girl who was a neighbor and had died about six months earlier. I even spoke to her for around two minutes. Then she just disappeared as if into thin air.

      I really don't know whether it was a ghost or whether it was an image created my my half asleep half awake brain.

      A good article in any case.

      I think that ghosts could be very real, and many of them are ghosts of people who've passed on. I've never seen a ghost or a spirit, but I still think that they could and do exist. The story of the little girl was real interesting. It sounds like she was very real. My grandma's brother accidently died when young, and people thought they saw his spirit rising, just after he just died.

      Interesting stories, intriguing and captivating but kinda scary stuff. I'd rather not meet with the ghosts. Just in case. But it's cool to read the real stories!

      Goody7, What a chilling, frightening, scary set of episodes! My favorite is of the floating little girl who suddenly disappears. The most poignant and saddest is the scroll about the ship which never makes it back to shore.

      Thank you for sharing,

      I'm glad that I'm reading this at 10:30 in the morning, instead of 10:30 at night!

      I am not aware of ever encountering an other worldly presence. I have never been able to decide whether I would want to have such an encounter. I'm open to belief about the episodes you've described here.

      Very interesting. I hope that you write more on this subject. Providing links to writings by others is appreciated!

      Thanks for sharing.

I kind of think you saw some kind of spiritual entity. What do you think? Oh, thanks for following me. Hope you find out that I like to write about positive images and miracles.

      Hi goody7! Yes, I have experienced seeing a ghost and I was so terrified. Before that I don´t believe about it but then I saw it myself. The friends whom I told the event think I am going banana. As I am reading your article, I am thinking to write a hub about it as it is still very fresh. It happened last February. Thanks for sharing and for following me.

      This is a marvelous idea for a hub. I spent a good part of my master's degree thinking about ghost stories and reading them. I now have a whole list of new areas to explore by hubbers here on Hubpages. Thanks!

      It also inspires me to get out a very short ghost piece I wrote awhile ago and re-craft it for a hubpage.

      Thanks for the great resource and the link, goody7!

      Thanks for the comment on my ghostly hub moonlake, but unless you were stationed at this military base in Germany, you probably wouldn't of heard of this story. Today as we speak they are constructing houses on the land where this base was located. Makes one wonder if those spirits will move into the newly constructed houses after they are built? I guess time will tell.

      Enjoyed your hub never heard the story about the military base in Germany. I use to live in Germany on a military base and when the fog would roll in it felt spooky couldn't see your hand in front of you. The bunkers too didn't like walking by them.

      There certainly seem to be a great number of stories attached to the lighthouse and when combined with your own must make you a fairly firm believer. I am interested why you begin your tale with "I tend to believe . . ."

      Do you doubt your own experience and those that have been recounted by others?

      Whatever any of us believe, ghost stories do fascinate because I suspect we secretly would all like them to contain some truth since, among other things, in some way they might lend credence to the notion of life beyond the grave.

      I've always wanted to spend the night in a haunted house and then write a hub about it. Maybe I'll do that one of these days. As for the existence of ghosts, I would believe in just about anything, including telekinesis, before I'd believe in ghosts. Later!

      Yes. I saw more ghosts when I was a child, but have shared witnessing of several ghosts as an adult. There are some ghosts in the underground tunnels in old town Portland, for example of a multiple person experience of the same ghost phenomena.

      I believe the most common type of ghost or spirit isn't the one who stays trapped here, but when a relative or loved one dies and visits in a dream to say goodbye, often a spirit will do so before the person is notified of the passing of their loved one.

      I am almost going to contradict myself with my comment.

      Firstly, I have to state that I do not believe in ghosts...however...

      It is interesting that you mention particularly Germany, as I visit Bavaria in Southern Germany regularly. A number of years ago, I was determined to visit Dachau, the former concentration camp, which has been largely preserved as it was as a memorial to those who perished and is open to the public, including guided tours. Against the advice of my friends and family in Munich, I did visit that place, "Where no flower grows and no bird sings."

      I cannot begin to describe the sensation I felt the moment I passed through the gates. It is about ten years ago, so I can't remember the exact sequence of events but I think that first of all I entered a modern visitor centre, part of which contains a number of simple pillars, each one dedicated to a country who had a national perished in Dachau. There are a great many pillars. I remember for some reason feeling obliged to reach out towards the one dedicated to Great Britain and feeling a horrible chill, even though I did not actually touch it. I am afraid I do attribute that to my own state of mind at the time but certainly cannot dispute what I felt.

      I saw some horrendous things that day which I will not repeat here - all of them very much Earthly based - as Dachau so far as I know is the only camp pretty much preserved as it was during the horrors. I left the tour before the end, having seen more than enough. It was only having left the camp that I realised that in all my time in it, much of the time outdoors in its vast confines, I had indeed heard no bird sing.

      Good luck with your Hub. It is certainly a fascinating subject.

      Very interesting hub and kinda gave me chills. I have had what I think to be an experience with what seemed like a supernatural encounter when I was younger but I could never fully wrap my mind around it. Great job here Cheers.

      Hi, thanks so much for the link, I think I do believe, but I also think that sometimes it is a timeslip or something like that, as you said above, the ghost was only seen from above his waist, that was because of the different levels of flooring over time, I remember thinking I saw a ghost in a pub, I went on to describe it and the landlady nearly fainted! lol I got it exactly right! interesting hub, nell

      If the truth were told, I'd bet just about everyone has had an experience at one time or another. Most people are afraid to admit it, and others are simply afraid to acknowledge it, convincing themselves it had to be something else.
