Old houses can be fun to visit or even live in. Sometimes, however, previous residents haven't completely moved out...as in this story sent in by Dawson from Ohio:
Hello, I'm Dawson from Ohio.
My old house was built on the site of a former 1800's school house. During renovation, a young girl's shoe, and an ink well were found.
One winter in 1993 I was home alone when my dogs; Chloe the cocker spaniel and Windsor the German Shepard mix, started growling, as if preparing for a fight. Suddenly, pale mist poured around the room, then a girl appeared from the mist. Surprisingly, I was calm, the girl had black flowing hair and dark, soulless, eyes and a dress that looked like it was the 1800's.
Then it was gone.
My parents didn't believe me, but I hope you do.
As I have said many times, I have no reason not to believe the people who send me stories. Thanks for sharing yours.
