When I was 6 years old my family moved into a large old brick farmhouse in Austintown Ohio a suburb of Youngstown. Right away I knew something was wrong about that house. In every room there was a feeling of being watched.
My older sister sensed it also. Our room was upstairs and it seemed that almost every night we heard footsteps walking around in the attic above us. We were too afraid to tell our parents. After we'd lived there for several years I was awakened in the night by piano music coming from the living room and thought my father must be playing the baby grand we had.
I crept down the stairs to the living room and turned on the light. No one was there although the piano notes were still resonating!!! I was so scared I flew back upstairs and ran into my parents' room where I discovered that they were both sound asleep in bed! I woke them up and told them someone was playing the piano.|
My dad got up and went downstairs to check it out and of course no one was there. He wasn't real happy with me and told me to go back to bed. Well life went on for a while. My sister and I continued to hear the footsteps in the attic at night.
Occasionally I heard piano music - always at night - and knew the presence in the house was playing it. But I was too scared to go downstairs to investigate. Then one day when I went down to breakfast my father was sitting there white as a sheet.
He had been awakened in the night by classical piano music being played in the living room! He investigated and no one was there. It was then that he believed me. My family lived in that house until I was 10 years old and gradually we all came to accept the fact that our farmhouse was haunted although we were never comfortable with it.
