I just wanted people to know about this house that I lived in for most of my childhood and teen years it was on East Chemung Plc. It was the top apartment of a very beautiful old house, but many spirits attached to it, and many strange things happened there. Some were just little like cold drafts, and I've only actually seen one spirit at one point that crossed paths with me in the hallway which was a woman. It's a very old house with a lot of history. I heard back in its glory a mayor used to live there. It also used to be a daycare, a little creepy I must say, but worse has happened. Many nights I heard whispers through my pillows and a lot of nightmares. I am not saying that it can count, but I've always felt that someone or something was always staring you down at any time of day. I have never had the nightmares that I used to have as soon as my family moved out.
The scariest part was a night I slept on the couch because I was too frightened to stay in my room. I woke up in the middle of the night thinking it was just me. I heard heavy breathing, so I thought it might have been myself or someone in the house, but I knew they were all asleep, so I myself heard my breath. I could still hear it. I moved in closer and heard the loudest breath. It pushed me to my sister's room. There was also a photograph I found of my sister and myself standing on the second landing when we were about 12, but on the corner seemed as though a presence of a spirit or demonic was there. It was red and yellow flames with a hideous face. It seemed like that house even followed my family because years after we were not living there my aunt and her three kids moved in there, and they had also told me of some very creepy occurrences that had happened to them. They also claimed to have very terrifying nightmares. I don't want to tell people this story for the thrill of reading ghost stories. I want to warn. You don't ever go there it will haunt you not the house!.

For many years I lived above a law office next to the original Chemung County library on Church Street. The building is now an abandoned wreck, but in its heyday at the turn of the 20th century it was a beautiful and exclusive apartment building, designed by a famous architect and modeled after an Italian palazzo. I rented apartments on both the third and second floors. The second floor apartment (on the left as you stand in front of the building) was the only one that hadn't later been subdivided into two apartments. It was there that we lived with at least one spirit for several years. It made itself known by passing through the spring-hinged swinging door between the butler's pantry and dining room, causing a distinctive ''swooshing'' sound as the door swung back and forth. The first time I heard it, I was alone in the apartment at night, painting before moving from the third floor to the second Floor. When I finally traced the sound to the pantry door, it was just coming to a rest on its hinges. I'll admit that I was a little frightened and quickly finished up for the night.
