Comment by Estrella: Well this happened to me in my house, but it was a ghost kid that haunted my place. I thought all the time it was my sister because when she was small, and she messed with the kitchen stuff. Any way one night I was lying in bed trying to go to sleep, but I couldn't. I felt like someone was next to my bed, and I was like ''Isabel, go to sleep. '' It wasn't my sister, so I went to the kitchen and a saw all the cabinets open when there was no one there. I went back to my room, and I heard footsteps. Creepy! .
Comment by Melissa: There was a tree on Stretch Road on the other side of the road from Stretch market. I believe there were a lot of cars that hit that tree at high speed. I think at least one was fatal.

I always believed our house on 17th Street was haunted. We moved in there in 1963. On our first day of moving in I was sitting at the top of the stairs (most of the attic had been converted into a 3rd bedroom). I was looking all around thinking we were just like the people on TV now because we had a two-story house. Then I noticed the attic door was open, it was closed when I sat down. I got up and closed it and made sure it was latched then sat down again to continue my grandiose day dreaming. I heard the attic door slowly creak open then turned to watch it open as wide as it would go. I took the stairs two at a time and neither my brother nor I would sleep in that room unless my grandparents slept in there. The stairs were very narrow and steep and there was a small landing where they turned. Our poodle could not get up or down the stairs, he had to be carried. One morning he woke my mother up with a slow persistent barking. She thought he wanted to be let out but when she got up to look for him she could not find him. He was at the top of the stairs and wanted someone to come get him down.
My brother and I were getting dressed for school one morning. He told me he woke up during the night, and there was an old man sitting at the foot of our bed. I asked him why he did not yell and wake someone up. He said he was too scared and that he pulled the covers over his head. He waited then looked, and he was still there. He said he did it two more times, and finally on the third time the man was gone. We refused to sleep without a night light from then on. It was a small lamp that sat on top of our chest of drawers. One night after we had gone to bed we were talking quietly, and the light went out. We bolted down the hall and into the living room. My dad told us we were babies and scaredy cats and that the light bulb had probably just burned out. He walked us back in to our room, turned the switch, and the lamp came right back on! I would never stay alone in that house. I remember once when my mother had taken my brother to the doctor. I was not allowed to go and after a few minutes alone I got the dog and sat on the front porch. I watched TV through the screen door until my mom came home. My mother even admitted (in later years) that she always felt like someone was watching her in that house.
