I will never forget it.

I am the owner of the house that so many have commented on in this listing. The house is located in Center Hill, Fl one block from the Center Hill Cemetery where the family and builders of the house were laid to rest. It has a long history of being haunted that goes back long before we lived here. My wife and I have lived in this location since January 1, 2002. The strange occurrences have happened since we moved in and have continued until this day. Our relationship with the spirits that dwell here are different than most hauntings. Maybe it is because my wife is a Wiccan, and I am an author and also designer of Ouija boards and other occult items.
We are not easily dissuaded or frightened and have almost never been afraid of the mysterious goings on in the house once we got used to the original shock and disbelief. We wanted to keep a low profile on the houses reputation for two reasons. The major being privacy. We have seen what happens to places like ours when the public gets wind of unexplained phenomenon, and it can be a real pain. We often find people stopped in front of our home taking pictures or just staring. Second is credibility. Unless you experience some phenomena yourself, it is hard to believe it is real or get a true grasp on any significance.
Luckily, we feel the spirit(s) that inhabit our house are friendly, at least to us. They pose no threat but are benevolent spirits. There have been so many occurrences over the years that it is hard to remember them all. I greatly regret not keeping a journal of the incidents. Both my wife and I as well as friends and neighbors have become so used to some of the lesser happenings that they have become somewhat common place. It is amazing what people can get used to if exposed on a day-to-day basis. Sometimes something will happen that is so over the top as to severely rattle your bones. In the interest of documenting the phenomena that we have experienced in this house in the past, we have decided to write a journal of our memories. I know we will miss quite a few ''happenings,'' but it will be a good and continuing record that is long overdue and can be shared with those with an interest.
Although it was never our intention to live in a ''haunted'' house, we find it enjoyable and not scary, that is most but not all the time.
The unexplained happenings that have occurred in our house are very sporadic. Sometimes months will pass with nothing out of the ordinary happening, and other times many odd things will occur daily for a week or more. It all began about two weeks after we moved in on New Year's Eve 2002. Up until this point we had heard bumps and creaks in the night, but we chalked it up to being in a new and strange environment and not being used to the new sights and sounds. I am a skeptic, and whenever there is any kind of unusual occurrence, I first turn to science and a logical explanation. The first real happening was a doozy and amongst the scariest we have experienced. It was the middle of the afternoon, and we had weekend guests: my wife's sister and her son, and my wife's daughter and her young daughter. Six of us in total. We had turned on the stereo in the living room and were gathered around a table on the adjacent porch playing a board game.
All of a sudden the stereo started to slowly turn down until the volume was all the way off. I walked into the living room to see what the problem was and found the volume knob on the stereo had actually been physically turned to the off position. I turned in back up and went back to my game. Within a few moments the same thing repeated. This time I started to get concerned. I turned the knob back up and returned to the game. Within a few moments the very same thing happened again. This time the whole group got concerned and went with me into the living room to check things out. Sure enough, the volume knob had been physically turned all the way down. I turned it back up, and as the 6 of us stood only a few feet from the stereo we all witnessed the knob slowly turn itself down. OK! Now some in the group were freaking out while I was still trying to come to a logical explanation.
