Real Haunted House

Rudolph Stepro’s House

Corydon, Indiana

After being shot in the head in battle, Rudolph Stepro could no longer deal with the agony of his life and thus committed suicide on the front porch of his farm house. Since then, the house has been plagued by strange occurrences. Among other things, water comes on by itself, the radio changes stations, and dishes fly through the air. The paranormal activity became so bad that the old house was torn down and replaced; the new house is plagued by the same spirits.

I live in Corydon and have never heard of this story. However there are many Stepro’s living in the town. I will check on this and let everyone know if I find anything.

That comment was honestly stupid. There are people here that take these things seriously. I live near Tell City and the home we have is brand new but the land is definantly haunted. I took my daughter to the bus one day and when I turned back to look at my house there was a shadow standing in my bedroom window, then it just turned like a normal person and headed to my bathroom. So i believe if you can not post appropriate things then you dont need to be posting

I really don’t know what is going on here but some of you people are seriously sick…I think seeing and hearing things from the other side is much more normal than you sickos talking about being raped (don’t find anything funny about that) and making fun of people…really shouldn’t have even given you the pleasure of paying attention to your illness. Get help.
Oh and if you don’t believe in the paranormal or things like that…visit another site.

I live in Corydon too and I have never heard of this story either. I think it’s pretty clear that it isn’t true.

Rudolph Stepro was the son of Charles and Marie Rhodes Stepro, he had one brother Charles Stepro and two sisters, Frances Stepro Jacobs and Ollie May Stepro Frakes. He and Charles Jr. served in WW2 and Rudolph was shot in the head in battle and he did kill himself shortly after returning home. Rudolph was never married and had no children, Charles Jr. was married 5 times to 3 women and had three children. Frances and Ollie had one son each, they all grew up on a farm south of Corydon. Frances, my grandmother is still living in New Albany during the summer and in Bradenton FL during the wwinter she will be 91 in June.

I’m from Corydon and I’ve never heard of this story, but I’ve heard and experienced several other places in Corydon…this town is really old and has a lot of history. There are a lot of places that aren’t listed on websites that are apparently haunted…try the lickford house, the old battle park, cold friday (to just name a few)…many unexplained things have happened there and many others to many people i know.

I think that this story is a good read, because without more information its very hard to form an honest opinion of its truthfulness.

P.S To both Justins you are sick, depraved and need a serious psychological evaluation.

I found out how my mom was a little girl she would be tickled every night by someone she can’t see so one night she was being tickled twice as much so she screams stop and starts crying because she is being tickled to much and she said she couldn’t breathe so she grabs the thimg by the hand amd looks at the ghost and she sees a black figure and then passes out and so this happened to me as a kid every night and it’s starting to happen now

I find this very interesting. My friend Vicki and I just started Paranormal Advisors and we are located in Breckinridge Co. Kentucky but I actually grew up in Lanesville Indiana. We have got some awesome ghost pictures that would blow anyones mind and a few pictures which appear to be demons. My friend is a normal and can speak to some spirits. We would love to come do an investigation. Please email

Okay, JUSTIN. That is really Jacked up considering i am sure there are people who look at this and they really have been raped, I know people who have been raped family of mine. You are a sick little ******* if you think you can just go around and say **** like that, Your mom needs to be kicked in the **** for bringing a little **** like you into this world, rape is not a joke. So why don’t you just shut the hell up about it, If you don’t like haunted places and you think it is so gay, then why are you looking it up on the internet. You suck and you are a freaking ******. So why don’t you go get a life and quit messing with people.
