Real Haunted Houses

Real Haunted House

Grandma Will Care For You

North Carolina, United States

In 1969, a woman lived with her daughter and her grandchildren. She was known to tell stories that could keep you on the edge of your seat, or shed tears for a sweet love story. She became sick with thyroid fever suffered until she finally stop breathing. Her family was devastated. Even the 4 year old little girl missed her grandmother.

A couple of months later, the little girl grew happier. Her mother wandered into the little girls room to find the little girl sitting on the bed, talking to the rocking chair that slowly rocked and she looked up smiling.

“Do you see her mama?” she questioned. The family left to move to Florida later because her mother feared what the house was doing to her daughter.

Thirty years later, the little girl became a mother, she came back to that old house and still felt the same comforting feeling. She decided to build a two story house next to it. In the great room of that old house, the wood around the fireplace feels warm to the touch, like it was burning wood recently. If you stand near the windows on the outside the blinds are bent slightly like someone is watching you. Then when you look away and suddenly look back, the blinds are straight. The grandmother’s spirit must still reside in that house to this day, watching over it.

Anyone interested in the paranormal, I am co founder of a local group in Fayetteville, North Carolina. My partner and I are looking for some new members willing to go on investigations. We have already partially investigated the Vander Light haunting. We still have to go back to with our equipment, but we did catch pictures of several orbs and ectoplasm.

“Grandma, will you make me some cookies?”
“Ah yes chile, one day you will grow up and you will be able to bake your own cookies.”
I knew Grandma was trying to get out of baking cookies for me, but she knew she couldn’t, as I had chained her to the stove.

I believe you but if you had some picture of the house. What you should do is to go in the house and take pictures of every room and see if you get anything that you think is the ghost of the grandmother.

Hannah says:

November 22, 2006, 5:19 pm

Guys, you don’t need to CRITIQUE this story. It’s makes the one who posted it feel horrible. Also, there is a “thyroid” fever…you can look it up in any research book on (infectious) diseases. I LOVE this ghostly tale!

Ann says:

I’m from Roseburg Or. and we do have alot of haunted houses. I’ve seen my few shair of spirits because of my spiritual background but to me, nothing would make me feel safe is having a love from the other side watching over me. My mother passed away before the birth of my twin sons and she was in the birthing room with me when I gave birth both my sister saw her and felt her and smelled babysoft prefume that she wore all the time and she was sing her favorite song at the birth of my boys. All my sister Billie and my self could do was cry and thank
creater for my mom to be with us.

thank you,

Tiffani says:

October 5, 2007, 9:15 pm

Hi I am Tiffani and if I may say so I think the story is very cute. I am 14 and live on Camp Lejuene. I hear of murders quite often living here but they are all scary. I think it is sweet that the grandma would stay there and be with her grandaughter. The mother just moved them away because she was scared for her child. You people need to understand that. And so what is the spelling of how she died was wrong get over it. Life goes on any way…just not for her. I just hope the grandma lives in peace and quiet.

Jeffrey says:

October 19, 2007, 5:34 am

…what a fun story! …and by the way, Kelli’s comments above, are like, ok, too “dumb”, ok, like really, and you know, like how would, like she REALLY know, ok, what is true or untrue, ok?

LUKEaRizzy says:

October 31, 2007, 12:08 pm

I think this is a really good storie, but thereâ??s nothing scary about it. It’s more comforting than it is spooky. If you ask me this is not a ghost story itâ??s more of a guardian angel thing.

NcLady says:

November 6, 2007, 7:01 pm

I wanted to comment on wolfpony’s comment, wow!! that was very sweet, to know that your mom was there to see the birth of your twins. Even though not physically, but in spirit and in your heart. Your comment gave me chill bumps. Thanks

i think is a scary stori and be glad that one day i hope it but it might giv me a nitemare 2nite!!!!!!

kuu says:

January 16, 2008, 6:04 pm

WOW that story is interesting that girl must have been brave to be so hsppy and calm around a ghosts prescence even if they are from her family. It would be cool to experience interaction with a ghost like that though I hope it would be friendly:)

allauna says:

January 21, 2008, 1:07 pm

wow! now thats awesome! but it is kinda wierd i mean just the thought of someone watching you is scary wether they are dead or alive or watching over their house after they died. kinda crazy but cool at the same time.

chrissy says:

February 20, 2008, 12:33 am

Is that really true…….questions that really haunt you!!!that is a little scary I guess.Does the daughters of the mothers that moved back in see the gma too?

Jenna says:

That is really cool but it is typhoid not thyroid and i’ve heared scaryer.

Kyndall Allred says:

April 22, 2008, 12:14 pm

omgaaahh thats crazyy.

John says:

May 5, 2008, 7:24 pm

This is obviously fake. It’s told like a story in a f****** book.

How can you believe this?

Jo says:

August 8, 2008, 3:43 pm

Thyroid fever huh. If she would have had Univeral Healthcare she would have been able to go to the doctor and gotten some medicine for that thing. Come to think of it Univeral Healthcare makes so much sense that Obama/Clinton should use this story to make their case for UniHealth. Where was Grandpa Ghost? Is Thyroid fever contagious? I don’t want to go to this house and catch it. Then I would be a ghost and left to sit in a rocking chair and look out of the window for eternity ugggggg!

Jumper says:

annonymous says:

November 25, 2008, 1:40 pm

yea that’s a scary story. well i live in laurel hill north carolina and it reminded me of when my spanish teacher was telling the class about his haunted story…scary but true…he said that around the 1930’s his grandparents had a daughter named Elizabeth, she waa two and ended dying because of the whooping cough. well after Elizabeth’s death his grandmother just couldn’t bare living in the same house that Elizabeth died in so his grandfather had found another house for them to live in…well now its been years after Elizabeth’s death and my teachers grandparents have invited his grandfather’s father to live with him…(my teacher’s great grandfather)…well one day my teacher’s grandfather was sleeping and woke up in the middle of the night around 3a.m. and found Elizabeth sitting at the edge of the bed looking at him…his grandfather said, “Elizabeth, What are you doing?” Elizabeth answers back, “i’m here to get your daddy.” so my teachers grandfather stood up and got out of bed and Elizabeth took his hand like a two year old would and walked him to the room where his dad was sleeping….and sure enough his dad had passed….when he looked down at Elizabeth she was gone… spooky huh?…wait thats not it…this year is 2008…my teacher had grew up now of course and bought that house that his grandparents onced lived in…the house where Elizabeth died in…he bought it because it’s like a little family house…the house is also located in South Carolina somewhere…but anyways remember this year is 2008 and he told us that just two christmas’s ago when they were having their little family and friends get together at that house his neice came over along with her two in a half year old girl…the grown ups were just talking you know catching up on stuff and my teacher and his neice realizes her daughter talking and playing with someone when she’s really playing by herself….my teacher asks his neices daughter, “baby what are you doing?…and she says, “oh, i’m just playing with Elizabeth.” ….and yes this is based on a TRUE STORY…

Michael says:

August 7, 2009, 5:37 pm

i loved it

Christy says:

September 29, 2009, 10:52 pm

Yes there is a Thyroid fever also known as Thyroid Storm I know that because I have been through it myself. My fever spiked at 105 i was very sick a few months later I had to have my Thyroid removed.

Christy says:

September 29, 2009, 11:00 pm

And yes you can die very quickly if the Thyroid Storm is not treated. And the diease is not spread from person to person, it’s a problem with the Tyroid only.

katie spurrier says:

January 4, 2010, 4:34 pm
