Real Haunted Houses

Real Haunted House

School Nurse

Redlands, California

It is said that in this school a young girl died in the nurse’s office. Now, the entire grounds of the school are haunted by the little girl. Allegedly, the swings swing by themselves-even though the wind is calm. Sometimes, one may even hear a girl whispering to them on the playground. If anyone knocks on the door of the nurses office, it knocks back!

Back in 1989, my HS boyfriend, his friends and I all went to this school. His brother was the only one brave enough to knock on the front door. The front door of this school is HUGE, and beside the door on either side are panes of glass going from the floor to the ceiling. You could look behind the door and see that nothing was there. When he knocked the first time, nothing happened. Then he knocked a second time, louder this time, and out of no where we heard a huge bang on the front door that came from the inside of the door. We were all freaked out, started to move away from the door. He went back to the door, almost teasingly, pretending he was going to knock, and before he could knock, we heard ‘knock knock knock’ coming from the inside of the door again. We had knocked on the nurses window as well (which is to the left of the front door). And something certainly knocked back there. We left there scared out of our minds.

2 years ago my frinds and i went. we did not know where the school was at and just our luck the night was foggy.After driving around the area for about a hour. we had given up hope of finding it when we took a small st which led us to the clearing where the school was. the story we heard was that the little girl was ran over by the school bus when she was chasing her ball. it is said that the nurse picked her up and took her inside the nurses offices where she dies. while we walked around the flag pole rope was moving even though there was no wind. while we where looking for the nurces office. to knock on the door we heard the moving of desk. after we knocked where we thought her room was we heard the shuffling of desk. needless to say we all got out of there as soon as possible.

As long as I’ve lived in highland and gone to school in Redlands, this school story has always been told. But I’ve heard it differently. I always heard that Mariposa was haunted by a little boy hit by a bus and yes the swinds violently swing when you sit down then get up to leave. At Kimberly Crest it’s said that a lil girl died in the nurses office but I’ve nrver heard how or why. Those big front doors and glass windows are the cafeteria. We tried both last night but neither worked. I still believe, but maybe me and my friends weren’t “worthy”.What’s the story about the stalled bus on the train tracks by starbucks on orange street? Can anyone tell me where more haunted spots are in redlands besides the Barton Mansion and the “Skater Crater”?

I grew up in Redlands and have lived here for 43 years and my family has been here much longer than that.I attended Mariposa elementary school and I can tell you that this story is pure hogwash! No student has ever died at Mariposa this is purely made up.As for the Barton Mansion the alleged video tape and haunting is also BS.The Dr.Benjamin Barton mansion never was or is haunted-the Bartons lived long happy prosperous lives in Redlands…just because a home is big old and empty for a while doesn’t a haunting make-so in these two cases the facts dispute and don’t exist…

when I first herd the story I couldn’t believe that a kid got ran over and died at the school. I tought it was awfull. But from the story it says it was a girl that died at the school and not a boy. I wonder why it likes to knock back at a person that is knocking at the door? Well once I herd that a hole bunch of kids went up to the school because they tought that the ghoast wasnt real. My friend said” they did go up there and they started saying they didnt believe in her”. Well she said things started happening like the swings started moving violintly, and voices were starting to be heard from inside of the school. At one point one of the kids herd a voice say “leave!” in a very scary matter. She said right at that moment all the kids started running away from the school as fast as they can. I asked her If any of those kids ever went back and she said no…they were to afraid to ever do it again, and she said those kids know believe, and there never going back. I thought that was an interesting story about what happend. And if I ever go Im never going to do that but I do want to knock at the door or window of the nerces ofice to see what happens.

The Mariposa School story is not true, but Redlands truly is one of the most haunted cities in the U.S. Redlands was, at one time, the witch craft capitol of the world. Kimberely Crest is one of the most haunted sites in the town. Many movies have been filmed there just because of the history involved (Hell Night with Linda Blair) If you ever get a chance to visit this town, you should. Check out all the heritage homes. The Barton House truly is the freakiest of them all. I have witnessed myself some horrors that have occurred there. It has been converted into a dentist office and redone, but just a few years back it was the most haunted place in the city.

Approximately 25 years ago my parents, myself and my siblings lived off of Alabama Street approximately one mile left of the main highway. My dad was working for Kimora Nursery and was in charge of maintaining the property under construction, in return we got to live rent free in the house next to the nursery. The things I heard and saw in that house still haunt me to this day. My mother and I were the only people unfortunate to see and hear these demons. I was about 8 years old when this started to happen. There was a murder of a young girl at the time when we lived there. She died near our property which was an orchard field. For months after her death my mother would hear her crying for help as she ran from one end of the orchard to the other end, “momma, momma.” I saw and heard worse than that. I will elaborate later if you are interested.

I’ve never been to any haunted houses, but in South Carolina, I garentee you,in every city there you will find something haunted.I think the most haunted place there,would have to be Fort Sumter. I’ve been there before and it was in the daytime and you could sense and hear things that wuold just let you know the place was haunted.Fort Sumter is located in Charleston, so if you ever want visit, go to Charleston.I think the place is haunted because in the old,old days there was a war going on I can’t remember what war it was, but a lot of people died on that day, a whole lot. And when you are there you feel like someone is whathing you and it makes you feel very uncomfortable… especially on the beach front.I only know these things ’cause I was born there, not in Fort Sumter, but in South Carolina and I do a whole lot of research it turns out THIS IS ONE HAUNTED STATE.I’ve seen things heard about things and done research on things and you should too it’s really exciting and it makes you feel scared inside, butfor the most part…EXCITING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I lived in Redlands as a kid lived right on E. Colton Ave. My friends and I always heard of the story but it was a boy as I remember, our parents always “warned” us not to go messing around as an adult I’d love to go back just to check it out.Maybe I’ll have to make a trip back….. all the stories are great and you have to believe “something” is out there or how boreing would that be!! non-believers need to just go…..
