Comment by Jim: By the way I would appreciate if anyone knows the history of the 1723 Downing Street property and the woods that once existed behind the house. The area must have had a history as the strange events in the house extended to stories to the back woods where strange stories of Willow the Wisp were seen back in the 1950s by an area now gone once called 'haunted pools' along a creek area.
Any information would be appreciated as I am still after 40 years trying to make sense of all of this.
Comment by Jim: Follow-up. I was able to trace down some history about the woods. It appears it was originally owned by the Davis family who got the property in the very early 20th century. Back in the woods was what we took as an old stone fort but which was more likely a spring house.
The Davis family supposedly had several boys who played in those woods. Who had the land before then and it's history are unknown. The question is was the poltergeist or ghostly activity brought in from the cemetery or something on the property?.
Comment by Jim: Eliterepeat. files. wordpress. com/2014/04/seeing-things. Jpg? W=584&h=762 came across this old Victorian illustration to a children's book with a poem by Eugene field. Appears field wrote this poem before WW1 and knew a thing or two about being a kid bothered by poltergeist.
Comment by anonymous: Redfin. com/nc/greensboro/ 1723-downing-st-27410/home/94625053 this is how the house looks today. The house to the right did not exist in those days but was a field. Behind the house once was a thick woods of about a half mile before opening to the graveyard.
Nobody has ever contacted me or inquired about the house. I have not been inside the house since 1984.
Comment by Jim: I visited the old neighborhood last week. I wonder if any of the neighbors living on Tennyson have had weird experiences. My hunch is my playing with friends at the graveyard I picked something up that followed me home.
The other possibility is there was something about the property of 1723 where the house was built that we did not know about. When I went to the end of Tennyson where the old woods was I was surprised how much the terrain has shifted.
There used to be an old spring house of rock in the woods by the creek which my friends and I pretended was an old British fort and we would play games as being Indians or Redcoats. The trails through the woods are all gone now and maybe time and the large removal of the woods has closed this chapter.
Anyone who wants to investigate this haunting I think might turn up something-I am almost positive this area must have had a history as I cannot think of any reason for the poltergeist activity there back in the 1970s.
