I had lived at a residential program/school called St. Ann's home and school in Methuen, MA. The fourth floor of the main building is the most haunted. The school used to be a church and an orphanage before it was a school and was established in 1929. I had my stuff moved when no one was around, and I had a blanket tugged out of my hands. On the third floor a boy had killed himself long ago, and in the bathroom you can sometimes hear a boy crying. The
staff doesn't like talking about the paranormal things that happen because they get so freaked out.

I lived at my grandparents' house on North Street in Methuen, MA for about 9 years. There's been a lot of weird stuff going on there throughout my life. It started out with weird feelings of being watched, and then when I was home alone I would hear someone call my name. Then stranger and stranger things started happening. One night when I was young (too young to remember why we were gone) my parents and I got home, and there were mud boot prints on the floor going from the front door into the kitchen and suddenly stopping. There were no prints outside. Only my grandmother was home; there was no rain or mud that day. My grandmother heard us come in and found the prints. At first she thought we had made them, but we just got in, and the door had still been locked.
One day my grandfather and I were watching TV, and in the corner of my eye I saw something move in front of a window. I got up to look, thinking a car had pulled into the drive way (the window was over a small hill, so the object was about eight feet high. ) There was nothing outside. I thought I had just imagined it, but I turned around, and my grandfather was looking out too. I asked him if he saw that too, and he said yes. One day when my mother and grandmother were home alone they heard someone walking down the stairs, and they went to look and found no one there. One day my grandmother was on the treadmill by the house' side door and right in front of her, the door locked by itself.
Just recently, a few months ago, my grandfather woke up during the night because he felt something touching his feet. He saw the figure of a person duck down behind the bed, and when he sat up and leaned to look, there was no one there. What's more creepy, I was sleeping over that night, and hours before that happened I felt someone breathing on my neck. The spirit has never done anything to harm us, and I don't believe it ever will. As I see it, the spirit there is a human being passed away and long forgotten, and he is trapped on earth.
