If anyone knows what they were talking about in Breckinridge Co. there being a haunted place called the Joseph Holt Mansion, please e-mail me at It’s pretty boring out here in Breck Co and I would like to go check it out as long as it is worth going to. I have been to the Gates of Hell out this way already and it is a little creepy, especially when the moon is full and it makes that light in the woods that looks so close to you, but when you try to walk to it, it just gets farther away… But there was nothing too bad out there. It’s just a cemetary that has a few people in it who were believed to be witches back in the 1700s and early 1800s, but the people who actually have tombstones are just someone’s family member so I wish people would stop breaking the gravestones out there. The “witches” didn’t get gravestones. They gone little pieces of flat stone with no name.

The house is long gone, but was well known 20 years ago, never heard about the can thing though. We used to take people there on Halloween night. Scary but no gohst sightings. Don’t think it was torn down it just fell on its own. What about Witches rosh? and other places in the County?

Here in Michigan we have a seven gable lane that is closed if you want to go back any more than a mile but if you go back past the gates another 2 miles thanthere is an old foundation of a house that is said to be haunted. it is said that a witch once live there during the mid 1800′s. she was attractive and had some problems with peeping-toms. She decided to put a curse on the fence that surrounded her property that would cause the death of anyone who would jump over it after a scream. two to five years later the witch heard a baby screeming and crying next door. she rushed to help and forgot about the curse as she jumped over her own fence. she died very soon after that. tweenty-five years later a man and his family moved into the witches house not knowing the history of the property. he became mentally insane due to the akward nature of the other people living near by, nightmares, and a strange pressence in the house. he became mean and cut a leg off of the family dog for no reason, a few days later burned the house down with the dog and his family inside. he walk down the road with his shotgun intending on shooting himself but instead found a good rope and hung himself. after that the police blocked the road off. today there are 4 main ghost that haunt the area around seven gable lane; a three leged dog, the witch, the insane man and his youngest daughter, but that isn’t all that haunts. many people have died trying to get there the back way through a swamp and hidden lake they also haunt still trying to get to the old foundation of this haunted house. on nights with a full moon there might be a little girl at the gate, where the road ends now, she will let you know if it is safe or not if she is there.

Can anyone tell me if there was anything built in the location where the 7Gables house was? It could be the land is haunted and not the house…does anyone know if this was ever checked out?
