previously, my spouse in a house on John Street over fifteen years ago and myself in a house in Savannah, GA where I lived for a spell. We are very curious about the possibility of a tunnel system leading from our home and would love to hear from someone who might have solid information about the history of our location.

Comment by Heather: Go to the library they have a book on the top floor you can look at. Pennsylvania Avenue and a few other streets are known as Irish Hill. It's where the Irish immigrants lived who helped to build the railroad.

We lived near the police station off of exit 16 Edwin Miller Blvd. I was told an elderly gentleman committed suicide in the area that our houses were built. Our first experience was when we heard thumps coming from upstairs when my children were sleeping. Thinking he fell out of bed, my husband and I went running upstairs to check on him, but he was sound asleep. My grandma used to watch the computer come on late at night. She would hear the front door open and close, and then hear footsteps going upstairs. We used to hear the garage door open and close. My husband and kids would see a black shadow man. My grandma and cousin saw an older man: one in the woods, the other in the dining room.
I had a friend stay overnight in our spare room. She left in the middle of the night. The same night my Grandma said the door flew open by itself, and it was bolted shut. My children saw the microwave oven door open and close by itself in the basement. You would run through the hallway because you always felt like someone was watching you. My son said he saw a black shadow with red eyes. During that same time I heard footsteps above me in his room. After that we sold the house. As far as I know, no new activities have been reported. Last time we drove by the house, my oldest son saw it outside on the stoop over top the steps. One week after we moved trees fell down across our neighbor's yard, all the way across our yard, taking out the kids' playset. The week after that our basketball net disappeared. I don't think the ghost was happy when we moved.
