Real Haunted Houses

Real Haunted House

Family Barn Murders

Mishawaka, Indiana

Over 200 hundred years ago, a family of seven lived in this barn. One brutal night, six of the family members were shot with muskets, while the seventh died, hiding in a closet. The family now haunts the house in the exact locations of the murders–the closet, the windowsill, and the doorway. In these places one may hear the screams and cries of young children. On the staircase, the third step has been broken for more than two hundred years; every attempt to fix it has failed.

Wow, more people who need to control themselves. :D

God, if you’re going to accuse the story of being fake, then waste your time somewhere else and save people (like me) from reading your stupid comments.

My family and I lived in this house for 5 years.
From 1993 to 1998. The house is shaped like a barn inside, primarly the up stairs where my two daughters bedrooms were. We experenced stuff from the time we moved in to the day we left.Kitchen doors opening by themselves, the sound of dogs barking from the upstairs closet door,the footsteps we heard every night comming from the upstairs,too many things to list. The house is off Milburn blvd on Summerset.

i am interested in knowing where this house is, if it really is off milburn on somerset then it is near my home, but then my parents have lived here all their lives, both dead now, but they never said anything about a house like this.
