It's not the house; it's the location. Now, a vacant lot, the southeast corner of Second Street east and Cleveland Avenue in Long Beach has long since borne misery to those who resided in the misshapen, unusually designed stucco house. Perfectly normal families would successively rent the house, and in a matter of weeks or months, the residents would transform into malcontents, nothing made them happy. Troubles dominated each member of each family. None seemed to be spared. They gradually became darker and darker, more and more unsociable, problematic, delighting in causing neighbors grief and instilling fear and distrust. Most inhabitants would move out of the house under the cloak of darkness, leaving no trace of themselves, no information about their new whereabouts.
After hurricane Katrina destroyed the structure it seems however, the spirits linger still upon the grounds. Even though the property is unkempt, just driving by in a car creeps out any commonly perceptive person. This neighborhood is notorious for ''traveling'' entities that seem to breeze up and down the block between Nicholson and Cleveland Avenue, on Second Street east only. In the middle of that block, on the north side of the street is a new construction built onto the original front steps of a house destroyed by Katrina.
As legend would have it, priests were imported from nearby Houston, Texas, to perform traditional Latin exorcisms to disrupt the paranormal activity that kept the family that had lived there for twenty-two years on its toes. Particularly in the rear of the residence, the paranormal activity was off the charts! This includes orbs, visions, cold spots, moving inanimate voices, you name it. The lady that owned the place is rebuilding in exactly the same spot on the property! When asked if she feared recurrences, she simply said ''yep. Sure do.''.
