Algonquin, Illinois Ghost Sightings - PAGE 2
(...continued from the previous page)|
the house tried to keep us. We could hear an evil voice coming from it and lights flashing on and off, but we made it out. I found out that there was an underground passage years ago for the war and the place was haunted by the ghost of that time.

I live on the Fox River. It's more considered Barrington Hills out here. My house is not too old, and the man who built it is still living. I will start with what I have seen outside. I drove down 25 late one night. I got to the part where it is farm fields. I looked out to the right and saw an old time lantern moving through the field. I really don't think they use the old lanterns anymore. It was a lantern with a candle because I could see the candle flickering. I also have seen strange mists and orbs while sitting outside at night. They just come out of nowhere and move on.
Now my house, let me explain it first. We have a separate garage with a suite above the garage, and the house has three levels, and you can get outside from all 3 levels. When we first moved in it needed a complete remodel, so we lived in the downstairs area for awhile. At night my father, who is a complete skeptic on anything paranormal, would hear light footsteps walking above us. He even went up a few times to see if someone broke in, but no one was up there. It takes a lot to spook my father, and this spooked him. My daughter and I often hear people upstairs when no one is home too. We call up there only to hear no response.
One time I was out in the garage. I heard someone knock on the door above me to the suite, then open the door, but I didn't hear any footsteps up to the door. There were no footsteps into the suite, nothing. I ran outside saying ''I'm going to call the police!'' Only to find the door wide open, and no one was there. If it was a person, they had to have some ninja skills to avoid me seeing them running away. I looked everywhere, and there was no one.
Then my boyfriend moved in. He has heard the footsteps above us, and one night he watched a light turn off in front of him. Thinking the bulb burnt out, he found out the bulb was fine, but the switch got turned off. I looked up history of this area. I know there were at one time Native Americans here, and it was farmland for awhile. I also found that there was a camp directly across the river from me at one point, and three boys drowned in the river somewhere near my house, before I moved out this way. I don't know if any of that has to do with who walks around at night above us, but it's interesting to read about. Nothing here has been harmful, so I have no problems with them, and they are welcome to stay.
