Mysterious Encounters In the Home
The local news station aired a series during the month of October on hauntings at various places in the Lehigh Valley, in Pennsylvania. It included private homes, well known and popular restaurants and inns, The Greater Lehigh Valley Paranormal Investigation Team were the ones that investigated these eerie occurrences. They even showed evidence, such as video, voice recordings and photos, of these occurrences.
This got me thinking about the house that my husband and I live in. Although I have not really witnessed anything odd, my husband claims that he has seen a ghost and experienced odd things.
I first want to mention that the house we live in is an older home built in the early 1900's. It originally was a funeral home owned by a couple who ran it. In the basement, there is one room you can see where the caskets were kept. Another room in the basement has a set of stairs, which are closed off now, coming in from the driveway, where they brought in the dead.
The one Halloween a few years back, during trick-or-treating, my husband and I took turns handing out candy to trick-or-treaters. It was getting towards the end of trick-or-treating and my husband turned towards me stating that someone dressed as an old lady was coming up the walk. He needed a break and that I should take care of this person. I looked out the door and did not see a single person. Hubby swore there was a lady there, walking up to the porch of our house. Could it be the lady that owned the funeral home?
Another time, my husband swore he woke up in the middle of the night, feeling something (or someone on the bed. He looked over and saw this woman sitting at the foot of the bed. (I was away during this time.)
There have also been times where we would put things down, such as keys, then find them in another place later.
