Real-Life Horror Stories: She's Our Ghost

Ghost on the stairs When you live in an old house, you get used to certain sounds. Floorboards creak. The house settles with a moaning sigh. But what if that noise you hear in the hallway isn't the house at all?


Throughout the month of October, the year's spookiest month, we'll be sharing real-life scary stories. These are not made-up tales told around the campfire. They are real deal, first-person accounts told in the victim's own words. Keep reading if you dare ...

“My parents live in a big old house and they have a ghost. She's an old lady and just wanders around in her nightgown every once in a while. They've both seen her several times, but she's never bothered them or done anything creepy (besides, you know, SHOWING UP).

"They had a handyman working in their house a couple years ago and he came outside while they were working in the yard and apologized for being so loud upstairs. He said he didn't realize they had someone staying with them. When he described who he saw they said, "Oh, that's Marge ... she's our ghost." The handyman refused to go back in and finish the job.” -- Katie B., Ames, Iowa
