I used to live on north second Street across from top cone ice cream... It was a small house that my husband daughter brother and I lived in. My brother lived downstairs in the basement. Not to long after we moved in I started hearing things down in the basement but always when I was alone in the house.
Finally my brother started hearing footsteps going up and down the basement stairs. One night we smelled smoke like from a pipe that same night I woke up and there was this man standing over my bed...
I turned on the lights and he was gone. A few weeks later we where all watching TV and we hear footsteps coming up the stairs but this time the basement door opened and shut and then the front door opened and shut needless to say we all left the house that night.|
This went on the whole 18 months we lived there. The thing is we never told anyone about all these things because we just thought people would think we were just making it up. I was talking to my grandma one day on the phone she use to live there before we moved in and she was asking we if we liked the house.
Then she started telling me about some of the things she had seen when she lived here I started to really freak out because she was telling the same story's that we had been living in. The same sounds smell of pipe smoke and the man in the bedroom.
I had had it and we moved out soon after that.

Comment by Wendy: Do you remember the address? I purchased a small house across from top cone and turned it into a hair salon. I would love to talk to you as I have experienced the sounds of footsteps and the feeling of being touched! I have been trying to find more info on previous owners.
