I've heard several ghost stories about the Besse when I lived there. Some people just casually talked about it, and it happened so often. One woman believed the ghosts of an old couple lived in her apartment. She said they didn't bother her. I'm psychic, (still working on my abilities) but I as well had several experiences. The most common one had to do with the stove in the kitchen turning itself off and on. I believe one experience was some sort of residual energy. I was awakened early one morning by the sound of a parade crossing, and there was no parade.
Another haunting that still goes on is at my parents' house on North Olive over by 4th Street. Most of the family has seen or heard spirits in the house, even my dad who doesn't really believe in the stuff. One of the spirits that I saw was a mixed female and had long wavy hair and was about 5'2. Another spirit I experienced in the home I believe to be a higher being. It had a golden glow and a very high vibration. I was also able to experience something new as far as the supernatural goes.
My daughter and I were at the back of the house one night and my parents at the front. My daughter and I woke up sweating so badly we could barely move. I felt a strong presence in the room but wasn't familiar with this type of energy. We were sweating so bad and had become so weak. I thought we were going to have to go to the hospital. There was no reason for us to be so hot. It was winter, and our small space heater was turned off. Prior to this night my mother had been sick and sleeping all the time because she had no energy. My daughter was feeling the same way, she just stayed in bed all the time. The night of the sweating went by, and in the morning it stopped.
At around 6:00 am the atmosphere changed completely. When I woke up my mother was up, dressed and cleaning (something she hadn't done in a long time. ) My daughter was up and fixing her hair and makeup. I felt kind of like I was in the twilight zone. I said to my daughter ''I'm surprised you have so much energy after last night. '' My mom said ''me and your dad couldn't sleep. For some reason we were up sweating all night. '' I've never heard of this happening before, but this being Cherokee land and us having Native American roots; I believe we had some sort of supernatural sweating or cleansing. There are several spirits in that house; I could go on but I'd sound crazy.

Comment by anonymous: Brandy it's interesting that the location of your experience is North Olive near 4th Street. My childhood home 508 west 4th Street (between Miles and Catalpa) is also haunted by a woman who was murdered in the front parlor in the early 20th century.
