When I was young, my parents took a job as caretakers of a large, elegant estate in Helena. It's a beautiful home, with carriage house, servant's quarters, beautiful rooms in the house and all the furniture to go with it.
The owners of the estate were seldom home, they just wanted us to take good care of the house. It was built in the early days of Helena, we are not from Montana, so I didn't know much of the local history.
My parents had told me that Montana and Helena has a very colorful history. Part of the yard, or ''garden'' is walled in, as a courtyard. My younger brother and sister and I could go anywhere we wanted, as long as we were respectful and did not harm anything.|
We were in the home for several years. Us kids saw dark, shadowy figures around the house regularly. We called them ghosts. These ghosts did not seem to bother us, and we weren't scared of them.
We didn't want to get to close to them, or have them get to close to us, but we saw them in all portions of the estate. At times, we could smell pipe smoke in the parlor and reading room of the house, and a couple times my mother's candles were lit when no one was around.
The court yard was a very regular place to see these ghosts. They never really bothered us, and left us alone when we slept, but it seemed like they wanted to keep an eye on us.
