Real Haunted Houses

Real Haunted House

Home Sweet Home

Minot, North Dakota

Now an antique shop, this old four story building is haunted by two ghosts. The first ghost is that of a man who hanged himself in the attic. Now blocked off by a door, the attic constantly has a frigid draft. Also the candy in the room is moved from dusty jar to dusty jar; there are never any fingerprints, however. The other phantom is that of a man that drowned in the river behind the house. At 4:39 AM, the time of the man’s death, it is said that the accident may be witnessed again.

I live in Minot ND and there are no ghosts there. We went there on a school trip once and there were no ghosts.

I went to this house, and I have got something to tell you. That candy is not good. I had a really bad stomach ache after eating a handful of it. Could it be the ghost?

The most haunted town in ND is Noonan, ND. Did you know that they have a bar that was once the town morgue? Some of the patrons are pretty pale looking. Go see for yourself. Spooky. Also, they have the haunted mine hills (be very careful) and a small haunted dam south of the town.

I investigated this site on a couple of different occasions. Also, I was able to visit with the proprietor of the business. She told me that yes an old man drown in the river out back as he was senile and fell down the bank, but never ever have there been any ghostly sightings…no ghosts or ghostly activity. I opened the “locked closet” with her permission and there was no extreme difference in temperature. Also i staked out the parking lot and watched the river one evening to no avail.

I had heard about this one once, and because of that, was skeptical to the veracity of the story. However, there is a ghost that haunts UND campus and another one that haunts the Altru Hostpital Staff elevator, both in Grand Forks. The one on UND campus lives in the tunnels under the dorms and in the skywalk. She has no legs, and wears a nightgown. Creepy stuff. The one in Altru just kind of moans…more of a spirit than a ghost.
