Real Haunted Houses

Real Haunted House

Friendly Haunt

Albany, Georgia

This house is haunted by an older, grizzly looking gentleman. However, the apparition is not a mean one; he protects residents of the house and even saved one woman from an abusive boyfriend. The man checks in on the bedrooms of the residents at night before returning to his own room — the back bathroom.

Well I think this dude is pretty nice and I would feel very, very safe in that house and so what if he stay in the bathroom, he is still a caring person.

When I was 5 or 6, we lived in a two story house on Clifton Road in Atlanta. The upstairs remained vacant and I would play up there. One day while playing alone up there, two figures came out of the fireplace and tried to grab me, telling me to come inside with them. I ran and got away. Needless to say, I never, ever, forgot and never went up there again. I grew up to become a police officer in that city. One day, I shared the story with the inhabitants. It wasn’t a good idea!

This house sounds very interesting. I live near historic Marietta,Georgia and the Kennesaw National Battlefield. I was wondering if any of you paranormal investigators have been there? Have you uncovered any paranormal activity there? There also is a huge cemetary for the civil war dead there as well. Next to it, a large cemetary. It covers several acres. A local t.v. station did a story on paranormal of this cemetary not long ago. If you haven’t, have you thought of going there?

I posted this story originally. I believe that the ghost was actually that of my grandfather. I am the one who was protected from a boyfriend. Also, he didn’t live in the bathroom (my post was reworded). What I stated was that sometimes when everyone was in the living room you could hear him walk down the hall and close the door to the back bathroom.

Also, no, I will not be revealing this location other than the fact that it is in east Albany and not up by Leesburg. Closer to Sylvester than Leesburg. This is a private residence, not a hotel. My family no longer owns this house so I do not know if the people who live there would appreciate random people knocking on their door asking about the ghost.

We live in Albany Georgia, and I have never heard of that Friendly Ghost, but I sure would like to know where the house is. We did however live in a house over on first Avenue that I swear is haunted. We lived there for several months and the kids and I finally moved out. My husband stayed there until the lease was up and he did not feel the feelings I and the children felt. It was sort of a feeling like you were being watched from behind. One night, my daughter got up in the middle of the night and thought my husband was in the kitchen and so she said “Daddy is that you?” and it went poof, vanished. My son, who was two at the time kept crying and saying “the man, the man!” and would not want to sleep in his room which used to be a porch.
My son says, “I don’t remember living there because I was so little, but I believe my mother’s stories. I do wonder if I might be a medium of sorts though, because If I did not feel the man there, then why would I not sleep in my room and why was I crying and saying “the man”?”

I love hearing about ghost stories. Whenever I hear one though, it’s always about a scary one. I like this one. I wish I had a ghost like that so when my sisters are mean he would punch ’em, kick ’em, & stick ’em in the eyes!(Little Man)

Whoa. Some friendly paranormal activity going on. That’s something. From all the cases I’ve read, this one was one of my interest. A friendly ghost roaming on about in his own space. Maybe the house was rebuilt and the bathroom was the spot where he probably spent his time in. : )

Also to the family who claims the ghost to be their grandfather. Since you are not living there any longer, it would be better for you all to become friends with the new owners, and visit the house from time to time. The spirit could grow alone and could become agressive. Consider in visiting the place. Even if it’s one time a month or year because maybe the only thing the ghost looked up to was his family~!
: )
Please consider my thought. I’m sure he will be very happy~! : D

He helped me find my lost puppy one time. But he smelled like moth balls and sweated a lot. You should check out his MySpace page: screen name FriendlyGhost who lives in a bathroom and likes to help people a lot.

It is like the lamest most retarded people in the world read this website…did anyone ever think that this is an old house where a smaller bedroom was remodeled into a bathroom when it become fashionable to have on inside your home??? I love the people on here who turn a forum on discussing a story into a personal vendetta as well. Your lame. get a life.

Will he do your laundry if you leave it by the door? I figure since he lives in the bathroom anyway.
