There is a house on River Road and Saint Francis Way in Holtwood that was built in 1752. A man hanged himself in the basement, and there have been quite a few people who have died (natural causes) in the house. The funerals for these people were conducted in the house. There is a family cemetery somewhere on the property, but the headstones were removed by a previous owner, and the new owner say he does not know where it is on the property. The house on the opposite corner was the barn before the farm was sub divided in the 80s. There are reports of people looking out the attic windows, unknown noises, footsteps in the hallway, and children's voices.... As per the current and former owners.
CAUTION: For your own safety do not trespass on this property or go to the door. The owner doesn't take kindly to trespassers, and he has a bunch of dogs that will probably tear you up. The house has had a lot of people move in and out for the last 20 years. No one stays there more than 3-4 years. I ran into the owner at the store, and he said he's been there for 8 years, and it's haunted. He says ''it's the living, not the dead that will hurt you. '' He said he just ignores the noises or tells them stop, and they do. He points out that the most annoying thing is missing tools and other house hold items including toys. Weeks will go by, and then the item reappears in the oddest places. If you know of any other info or stories about this house, please contact me. broadfall@gmail. com. I would like to write a book about local hauntings.

Comment by K: A woman put a rope bed from that house on consignment in my flea market and the people who bought it told me that the bed was haunted. I can't remember who bought it but I remember the woman was a nurse and her husband was in law enforcement in MD.
The lady who put it on consignment said that she never had any problem with the bed or house.
Comment by Bob: I have seen this house, and I know it was haunted the day I moved in this area in Holtwood Pa Lancaster.
