I went to college in Steubenville during the 90s and lived in a house on Kendall Ave. I experienced strange things when I was there. I have seen shadow figures and footsteps. The basement where the laundry was gave me the creeps. One event I won't forget for the rest of my life was a week before my brother's graduation day. At that time my brother and I were expecting some of our family members and relatives to stay over for my brother's graduation that summer. My apartment became so smelly. It was like a mixed smell of blood, human corpse and waste. My brother noticed it as well. We checked around inside and outside of the house. There was nothing suspicious. I decided to go to Kroger to get some potpourri. I poured the potpourri onto the carpet and vacuumed it. The stench remained in the house.
A few days later my family and relatives came and stayed. During their stay, the atmosphere was strange and extremely hot. There were lots of arguments and anger. My brother and I could not believe this really happening. Three days after my brother's graduation, they all left. On the day our apartment was empty again, the odor disappeared by itself. And on the same day, around 5:30 pm, while my brother, myself, and some friends were talking outside our apartment near the empty field, we all freaked out. One of my friends started to cry and shouted. We all saw a green morph which had a size of a baseball came out floating from one of the windows. After that it vanished upward towards the empty field. Was it a bad spirit? Ghost? If it was a ghost, was it from the house or outside the house? I don't know. Until now I still remember the house. And I just found out recently on the internet that house is up for the market. I looked at the year it was built, and it was 1928 or 1929. I don't remember exactly. Cool... A pre-war house.

I lived in a house on Adams St. in Steubenville, OH for 7 years. We had many ghostly experiences in that house. I believe that the spirit was trying to possess my son. We moved there when he was 9 months old, and I immediately noticed him acting strangely. We heard several people walking above our bedroom, and the attic had been completely filled with insulation. My son would get up in the middle of the night and do things and not even know he was doing them. My younger son when he was only 1 and a half years old was in his room crying. When I went to check on him he was standing right inside the doorway saying that the mean lady would not let him out because he didn't have a password (and he was definitely too young to make something like that up). The water in the bathroom would come on by itself. My bedroom door opened by itself.

Comment by June: I know this is true because it was my daughter's house. I am so happy that they moved. I wonder if the new residents are having anything going on.
