We had very little money when we got married and had two little girls. We thought we were lucky when we found a house on Bernard Street and Mulberry. For about a year nothing happened, but then it started. The girls refused to stay in their room because ''someone kept waking them up or touching their shoulders,'' so we traded rooms. Then the heavy human footsteps in the attic started happening. They would go from the front of the house to the back and then back up front again. I had never been in the attic, so I did not know what it was like up there. We do not believe much in spirits or ghosts. It was going to take a lot for us to consider that we had anything like that. One night my husband and I were getting ready to go out. I showered and was sitting in the living room. A bare arm was in the hallway reaching around the door and seemed to wave back and forth at me. I thought it was my husband drying off from the shower or something, but then my husband came in the front door. He had left to run to the bank. The arm retracted into our bedroom. We tore the room apart and found nothing.
The nightly walking back and forth continued. A few months later I woke one night to see a man in an old fashioned tweed coat floating in the ceiling corner of the room. This was very vivid. I got up to turn on the light, and it floated over to the center of the wall. I turned on the light and could still see it, but then it flicked off. It was always something with this place. There were so many strange happening including doors slamming, faucets turning on and off, a man's voice and someone giggling, weird marks on the walls, and the footsteps. Two old ladies came by to see the 'ol place' but refused to come in. One sister just stared at the house, but the other one whispered to me that an uncle and aunt had raised her sister there, and it was not a good time. They would not say much and drove off. I tried to put a garden in the back yard, and started digging up. I found apothecary bottles, burnt wood, bones, and old cheap burnt jewelry. At first I found out that most of Bernard Street is on top of the rubbish heap from the original school. When working on our property taxes we found out we were paying taxes on a second floor and a small apartment building in the backyard, but both were not there. It turned out the house had been in a fire. Repairs had been made, but the second floor and apartment were not replaced.
That was when we checked out the attic. The tiny ladder was impossible for my big husband to climb and nearly impossible for a human to make the angle into the space. There was no attic but a very small crawl space with numbered boards that were scorched. We moved out and rented the house out to students. Sometimes it would be a student, and sometimes it would be the parent that would call. The calls always started casual about repairs, and then the inevitable would come. They would say ''I am so embarrassed to mention this, but my son (or sometimes daughter) is complaining about the doors slamming (as well as footsteps, a man in hallway, a man in bedroom, light floating in back of kitchen, girl laughing etc. ) I know it sounds silly but the kids say the house is haunted. Have you heard anything about this? '' North Texas tore the house down, and now a neighbor on Hickory said her house started have weird things happen. It was the same harassment we had on Bernard Street. I am glad it is not us anymore. In my opinion as a non-believer in ghosts, Bernard Street is haunted.
