Real Haunted Houses

Real Haunted House

Old Elerbe Road School

Shreveport, Louisiana

This former school was closed due to the disappearances of several people, one being a beloved janitor. When the children went to look for him, they too disappeared–one by one. All that remains is a building in which all the lockers have been knocked out; in their place is a mural of the grim reaper. At night, one may hear the screams of children and the sound of a school bell.

IT’S DEFINATELY REAL!!!!! Me and some friends went out there several years ago and I didn’t believe the stories myself until I experienced them. We went into what a girlfriend of mine called the altar and the door slammed shut, the only way out was this tiny opening at the bottom of the wall. If I had been any bigger I would have been stuck in there until what ever closed the door decided to let me out or whatever it may have been wanting to do. Before the door closed I had touched the stone table and it was very hot to the touch leaving scars on my hands from touching it. Once we got out of the “altar room” we then went to the gym where it felt as though somebody was watching over us. I never actually seen anything in that room, but I know that we were not alone. It wasnt very long after proceeding to the hallway where the lockers are knocked down that we all began to hear screams and seen something black moving in the shadows towards us very rapidly. This definately scared the mess out of all of us and we began running back to our car. Whatever or whoever that was definately didn’t want us there and we could hear it running behind us all the way to the car. We drove as fast as we could and as we got to the crossing where the tracks are our car nearly wrecked. We then looked up and the moon had a cloud that resembled the shape of a goats head around it. I will never return to the school ever again. I dont know what or who that was or why they are there but they definately dont want to be disturbed. SCEPTICS BEWARE

Its true. I have been and its definately one of the spookiest places ive ever been. I went out there around midnight and saw shadows, heard voices, and even found dried blood on the walls.We ran out so scared! Me, my b-friend, and this guy got into his car only to find trouble as the fan belt had broken and I had to take off my pantyhose to let him use them for a fan belt. I’ll go back but when I can get enough nerve.

I went one time just recently… the stories that i heard were much similar but also different…i have heard that an old man owns all of that land now and keeps his cows out there..i have heard that if he catches someone out there he will start shooting no matter who you are…you are on his property and he has the right… and my friends went out there i like scary stuff well as we got there, we started walkin in there, we had a big spot and my friend ashley came back bc it looked scary i finally went in and there was only cows and cow sure the dried blood that yall talk about is from the cows..i didnt go into many places in there bc i wanted to get out…wasnt that scart just dark..for a note: If you do decide to go there, watch out bc the police are bad and only bring a little flash light bc the school has no roof and the police can easily see a flash light from the road…Have fun!!!

I went to the school last night… there is not only that one lone building that the intro paragraph talks about, but there five (I believe) buildings. One was a cafeteria, one was a gym, another an auditorium, and the last two being classrooms. There was also a small building out by the water tower, both being offset from the school by fifty yards, I think it was a circuit room. There was no STONE ALTAR, it was a stage made mostly out of concrete and it had decomposed remnants of wood flooring covering the top of it. Also, if you can’t get through the random rectangular holes along the bottoms of the walls, than you must be really effing fat. Also, there are many completely busted out windows that are more than an ample size for someone of normal size to go through quickly. We saw no dead cows (though there were many live ones, all rather stupid and skittish), nothing scary happened (although we did scare some really retarded redneck kids from Byrd High School), no dried blood on the walls (just lots of graffiti), and there were no psycho hobos inhabiting the school.

So, basically, nothing scary happened. I seriously recommend that you bring flashlights, and don’t freak out if your cell phone gets no signal because remember, you are waaaaaay out in the boonies. I also say that you should wear shoes to run in, ladies, that means NO HEELS. Shoes that you wouldn’t mind getting dirty, because there is mucho cow manure in the school. If you hear a car coming (you can hear them coming way before they can see the school) you should turn your flashlights because the cops do watch that area. DO NOT park in front of the place, we parked a mile or two down the road, way back on a plant road, so that our cars were hidden from view. Also, use the bathroom before you go…

Write my email and if anyone has any idea of what the school looks like and as much detail as you can. I mainly need to know what the school looked like in 1994 or maybe after wards. Write me immediately about this!
Label it: “Old Ellerbe 1994.”

Hey, I’ve been there before. It was really close or right after Halloween. It’s really not that bad. What the mind percieves, the body believes. I do think there may be some type of “existance” out there, but I’ve also found nothing at all. Sometimes, it FEELS very eerie, but nothing usually happens. If you know where Bert Kouns and 1-49 is, then your somewhat close. It’s easy after this. Get to wallace lake road. Go down and you’ll pass up the little car dealership and B&J flooring. After this proceed to the stop sign. This is Wallace Lake Rd. and Flourney Lucas Rd. Go left and then you will go over some train tracks (this is the site of the forbing woods ghost as well). Keep going until you see the intersection. At the red light (could be green), go right and THIS is ELLERBE ROAD. You will have to drive many miles. Really, about 20 minutes or so. You’ll come up on a red or yellow flashing light way out there and just keep driving. Some ways up the road you WILL see it on the right hand side. There ya go!! Oh by the way, the view on top of the school is pretty cool…. I pee’d there once…HA! Good luck!

I have been there. There was some stuff that freaked me out, but nothing really that would make me think that there was an angry spirit in there. I think they are just looking for a way out….. Does anyone know why the people went missing anyway? I have heard alot of different stories but none that have ever really made that much since.

the story posted on this site is not the real story.
i dont know where they came up with somethin so stupid, but thats not what happened. the school was burnt down by the janitor, with all the kids in the auditorium. anything else is false information.

ive witnessed a disaperence. me and my friend said people lie and try to scare you. we werent scared until we got to the school. then we got a little terrified! we heard screaming a kids in the classrooms, in the gym, in the autotoriam and in the halways. we walked through the hallways and the door slamed shut! we screamed a when we were done screaming the kids screamed louder! we saw lines of blood on the walls and saw holes under the walls. we held hands as we walked over all the lockers on the floor. first we went to the gym and saw black shadow shaped of a person pointing to the door that lead back outside. we ran out of the gym and then went to the autotoriom. Now as we went int the we saw a janitor with blood all ove him on the stage a kids screaming. we again ran out of there as fast as we can. we suffered the classrooms. there was nothing scary about that but we saw blood on the walls. this time we walked out of the classrooms. We decided to go down the different hallways alone this time. we both had watches and i said to her” meet me on the bench next to the front door at 10:00 pm.” she said “deal”. we hugged and said good luck to eachother. it was 9:55 pm and i was heading down the hallway to the bench as i heard screaming down the hallway that my friend alexa went. i thought it was the uasal screaming that we heard since we walkled into the is place. it was exacually 10:00 pm when i sat down on the bench. i was wondering where alexa was. 5 minutes past and i started to call alexa’s name. i heard the screaming again and this time i heard “help” and it was alexa’s voice. she shaid ” i am by classroom 101 come and help me”. i ran down to classroom 101 and nobody was there. i said “alexa this is not funny tell me where you are. now!!!!!!!!!” i ran into the classroom and nobody was there neither. i saw a shadow pass by the lockers and go into the walls. i have noticed that my friend alexa had just disapered!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
i ran as super fast as i can and went into the cracks under the walls and ended up in the back of the school. i climed over the fence hopped into my car and drove off crying histerical and i drove off before the cops caught me. as soon as i got into the door i told my whole family and then called alexa’s whole family and then called the cops and told them!!!

nicole…oh my god. If that’s true, that sounds like one HELL of a nightmare. Did you ever find Alexa? I think there is a moral to this story, kids: DON’T GO TO FRICKIN’ HAUNTED PLACES RUMORED TO BE MURDER SCENES. That’s just my logic. If you do go, have fun. Send me a postcard.

A year or two ago I went there around 8am with two of my friends. I remember feeling the hairs on my arm rise and how the tree’s seemed like they were bending at us as we went further down the road. I got my friend to take pictures when he went in there because I was too scared to even exit the vehicle. I developed the pictures and the developments were pretty scary. I have pictures to prove taht there is SOMETHING in that buildign haunting the school. There’s a shadowy image at the far end of a hallway reflecting on the door entrance. When you flip the picture over, which is the scariest part ever. It looks like someone hanging upside down by it’s head.. now you tell me if that’s not scary or not, or maybe it’s just a coincidence? Or something. All I know is that I’ve been there 3 times and it still gives me that errie feeling. I haven’t been there since, I won’t ever enter the building because one of my friends, friends who brought a vid. tape to record she heard alot of children screaming int he tape. But what was scary about is that while she recorded she didn’t hear anything but when she played the tape at home there was noise. Wierd huh?
