Front Royal, Virginia Ghost Sightings
As a child I lived a few years in a home on Sherwood Avenue in Front Royal, Virginia. The brick house on the hill known simply as Oakley. So many spirits are haunting this place. If you've never seen it, you could only imagine.|

I lived in a house on E. Stonewall Drive for one year. Upon moving in, while the house was empty, a dark shadowy mist followed me as I moved around the house cleaning. I could feel it there. Mostly it was in the foyer near the bottom of the steps in the front entry room of the house. I avoided the upstairs because I could feel the presence most strongly up there in the hallway and the back bedroom. Our Staffordshire terrier who was really tough was frightened when we heard a loud pop. We then saw a thin drop of lightning fall from the top of the door onto the floor and then disappear. There was no electricity there at all at that time. Before the pop sound he was just sitting there and staring up at that spot. When it happened he ran.
Before moving in I had my husband take digital pictures of all the rooms. One of the pictures was taken in the bedroom behind the bathroom upstairs. We could clearly see the form of a luminous figure which was female. In the lower left corner of a window we could see the face of a dog (a German Shepherd. ) Years ago I raised a purebred Shepherd, Niko. Niko was personally trained by me. He was very territorial and a vicious guard dog and liked no one but the members of my family. To us he was a loving family pet, but he had to be euthanized at about thirteen months old because he developed a very fast form of cancer and was suffering. The female luminous spirit in the picture I believed to be either my ''watcher,'' or my mother who died when I was six years old, or even quite possibly my aunt who raised me after her death (or she can also be just a spirit who lives in the house. ) There have been strange occurrences in the house several times, but the spirit was friendly. I used the Ouija board regularly in the house, but the planchette would only confirm ''yes'' that there was a spirit present. Nothing much more was added.
When we moved out in August 2010, I invited the spirit to come with me to the new residence, but there has been no evidence or communication here as of yet. I actually learned to love the house as it ''shrouded and enveloped you. '' The house made me feel secure. Unfortunately we had to move from this house. Previous tenants have said the same thing. It was a welcome presence to us when we lived there, or should I say we were a welcome presence there?.

Comment by Mark: My family used to live at 213 Stonewall drive back in the late seventies and most every house on that street had some bizarre paranormal activity going on. I remember a few occasions where I was awakened in the middle of the night by a green woman in a black dress standing in my bedroom.
