I'm trying to find out. Ever since moving here, I had nothing but very bad luck. Smoke detectors go off all of them, and even if you take the batteries out, they still be sounding. TV turns on and off by itself; kids scared to sleep in the basement or upstairs bedroom. They see bags, curtain, and other objects move.|

I used to live on 212th Place, and my house was haunted. Ghosts would sit on my bed, and they would watch me every night when I went to sleep. It was very traumatic for me. I had to sleep under the covers every night. They would never let me see them, but I always felt them.

Comment by anonymous: Same thing happened to me. I live on 215th Street in Matteson IL. I felt something pull cover off of me, and it lay in bed with me. My guy saw a very tall black shadow walk through the bedroom door. Every night at 3 someone will knock on bedroom window. When we look out the window, no one would be there.
I rented a house back in 2007-8 just beneath the railroad tracks on E. Main Street in old Matteson. It was one of three older homes on east of the viaduct on that little circular street that went behind what I think was Coys ( as well as some weird building with a retention pond). There was always shady stuff happening there and so many strange animal experiences, as well as my own pets acting spooked. It wasn't the train that shook the house or the creakiness of the house. There was an energy there that was different. It influenced behavior in some way; it's hard to explain.
I had just separated from my ex, and I was living with my oldest two sons who were then 8 and 5. They definitely reacted to something. They wouldn't sleep in their own rooms upstairs. Despite having better accommodations in separate rooms, they chose to sleep in the same room (which was the least creepy as they said). My bedroom was downstairs. They even put their camping tent over themselves while sleeping.
They had never acted afraid of something before and weren't neurotic kids at all, but they didn't like the upstairs and despite sibling rivalry anywhere else they were attached at the hip there. I had two dogs, and they would be outside going potty and would just get ''spooked'' in complete silence. It was weird. I always wondered the history.
