My grandma lives two houses away from a house that is haunted. My aunt's friend used to live there when she was a kid on east poplar Street in Taylorville,il. One day we were swimming and we looked up at the house we saw something in the window and we looked later and it was gone and no one lives there.
My aunt found out years ago when people would have mentally weak kids they would keep them up in the attic of that house. My aunts friend said the doors would close and a mother was putting her makeup onand smelled perfume and saw a lady floating behind her while she was looking in the mirror.
There dog barked up at the ceiling for no reason.

Comment by Larry: Little red house near the dead end? I lived there and saw the ghost of the little boy killed in the attic. The story goes that his dad was a preacher and lived in the big white house next door. The kid had epilepsy which was a sign of being possessed back then.
So they took him to the nanny's house and shot him in the attic. I heard this story well after I lived there and saw the ghost. Once he was looking through my bedroom door at me. The other time he was running from my parents' closet (where the attic entrance was).

What was the address of the house that you lived I lived in a house but not in Taylorville but Langleyville passed the Langleyville cemetery. It was haunted. People would see a woman walking on the porch around the house.
It was definitely haunted. Many weird and sometimes scary things happened when I was a kid there.

Comment by Nancy: Not sure, I haven't lived there since I was 15 and I am a few years passed that now. My father died in that house in 1985. Shortly there after my mom had it demolished.
