I lived in a house less than 2 blocks from this location. It too was haunted. There is a very old Riverside Cemetery nearby and I have heard rumors that before the levee was built up hangings took place down by Lusk Creek.|
My home had at least 2 very distinct spirits who were also acknowledged by some previous tenants. The first of which was a young boy. I could hear him running around the house and bouncing a ball. He also liked to roll up the window
shade at the bottom of the stairs.|
The second spirit was that of adult male. There was a very masculine presence when he was about. I called him my
cowboy because I could distinctly hear the sound of his boots pacing about. I always felt safe when he was around as if he was protecting us.|
With the use of dousing rods the masculine presence was confirmed.

Comment by Johnny: I know the masculine presence was confirmed using dousing rods because I'm the one who used them and confirmed it.
