Real Haunted Houses

Real Haunted House

The Boonies

Los Angeles, California

Several miles away from most civilization lies a house known as The Boonies. It is said that an insane man and his rabbits lived in this house; the rabbits were all shaved. During the night, passers by would see a faint red glow coming from the house; they would also hear a high pitched wailing. The next day, rabbits with red skin would be seen running through the neighborhoods.

Just because there are’nt alot of adresses with the storys and some of them seem to be a bit far feched does not mean there untrue at all….stranger things have happned. Nobody thought that they would get kidnaped on their way to lynard skynard concert, out in the middle of texas and be tortured by some freak with a leather fetish…..but it really happned and that just proves strange…strange…things go on in the world. So don’t be so Skeptic the next time you see their isn’t an adress or some lady sees a little person when shes taking a dump or some freak shaves his rabbits……..just think about it, do some of your own investigating, get to the bottom of it and find out for yourself…..i can’t tell you it’s real…but im sure as hell not gonna tell you it ISN’T REAL. and non of these be people are losers for wanting to know the truth.

Hi I have been to the Bonnies before. I should warn you thought that it is horrible there we had to sneak in because no one is allowed in there. But seeing as how it was a big group of us we had to go in 3 at a time.Well when my group went inside at first it all looked noraml. But then we started hearing horrible unearthly noises.But seeing as how we are ignorant teenagers we decided to follow them . That was not a very good idea the noises lead us to a huge metal door. It took both of the guys that were with me to open it then when we went inside. Well to say it in a not so graphic way it reaked of blood and death.Needless to say after that we ran out of there and havent gone back….. yet.

I would like to know the location of these hauntings. I am a writer/director that would like to get any or all information. I think that this should be seen in a documentary. I feel as if it is a calling. I experienced a place clled Gravity Hill in Sun Valley off of the 210 freeway heading towards Pasadena. If you take the exit of Paxton there you wil find a Cematary and insane asylum. I put baby powder onto the HOOD of my car not the trunk. I then put my car in neutral(car is reversersed) The car began to get pushed backwards. When I reached the top of the hill I noticed a cemetary. There is a street that goes around the cemetary. A freind ststed if I drove my car around this block I would see a different light color change. The first time I went around the block and the light was blue. The second the lite was a dim yellow. The thrid time I drove around the block the light was purple. And when I finally drove around the block for the seventh time. I saw a human figure waiting near the gate. He had a shaved head and looked as my car as if I were there to harm him. I felt a hallow pin in my chest. I looked in the rear view mirror and saw eyes in my back seat. The feeling was as if the energy was sad. But I felt too much anger.

I would like to warn those who tread in this area. I was scared to death. I had a spirts eyes stuck in my rearview.

I live by the paxton exit and people have had ghost stories about that place for years. So much so that a lot curious people have explored the place. here is a list of what is up there:
1) a downhill that looks like an uphill. this is true there is an area in front of the cemetary that looks like a downhill slope but is a natural illusion and really is an up hill slope. that is why when a car is in nuetral it starts to roll up hill.
2) there is a chapter of the KKK up there two and on occasion you will see the ceremonies as they are happening. Crosses on fire lynchings and all that other stuff is said to be included.
3) A creepy cemetary but I have not seen the insane hold tank.
My experiences ther have not been fun. A friend of mine once thought it would be fun to drive through that area with the lights off around 2am. He drove wildly causing tire peelouts and donuts. im sure he woke up anyone in the area. While he was doing this a car came in the oppisite direction which is weird cause you could see the streets clearly and almost ran us off the road. After that he turned on the ligths and hauled *** out of there.
On another occasion I drove around the cemetary several times looking for a place to park so that we could walk through it and a weird man appeared out of nowhere. He was standing right next to the body drop off sign near the entrance of the cemetary. I felt my chest cave at this point. He gave us a cold stare and started walking towards the street as if to cut us off. I stepped on the gas and swore that if he made to the street before us I was going to run him over. I was not about to stop. I have not been back since.

Wow, I don’t know about the whole rabbit story, but how about the Paxton exit one, now that sounds creepy. Maybee there is something going on, I think I will give it a try and I will keep you all posted when I return. Don’t know when I will be going but I will and I hope I return safely. 😉

I just moved out of a haunted apt. When we first moved in, back in April of 2005, within the first 48 hrs, I kept finding our broom behind our bedroom dr. I kept putting the broom away in the kitchen pantry. After about 3 days of this going on, I got annoyed and yelled at my husband for putting the broom there. He swore up and down he was not puttin it there.This kept up for the first month we were there.I used to work swing shift and when I got home my husband would tell me that the doorbell would ring but there would be no one at the door.
Right away we started hearing movement from our closet, you could hear coat hangers moving, things shifting and foot steps around our bed.
My family has always been around some form of haunting as long as I can remember so, I was freaked out, but not TOO freaked out. Then then cold spots started happening on one side of the bed, on my side it would be totally warm (summer in Southern Cali)and the other side you would actually be cold and have goose bumps. The broom kept moving around from kitchen to bedroom,and it started to be really unnerving!
Then one night when I was sick, I was laying on the couch in the living room watching “The Mummy Returns” on VHS. When the movie was over, I took the tape out and laid it on a table by the side of the TV, about a 1/2 hr later I heard what I thought was a window cracking or glass breaking.
I got up, walked around and found nothing. In the morning when I got up, I walked by the TV to find the VHS Mummy Returns movie, totally ripped in half and the tape pulled out. In another instance, my husband was standing near the kitchen leaning on the nook talking to me when all of a sudden, the clock that was nailed to the wall flew off and landed about 2 inches from his feet. The thing about the clock though, is was nailed to wall, a bookshelf lay directly beneath it and a table was in front of that, it never even came near those two objects. We just kinda stared at each other and made jokes to about the ghost not liking him.
About 10 minutes later, my husband was standing on the kitchen side of the nook and the clock again jumped off the wall landing about 3 inches from his feet. On both instances, I checked the nail and it was firmly in place and the clock had no damage to it.
My room would get so noisy with the sound of footsteps and things moving, I would have to shut my bedroom door when I was in the living room. My husband actually saw a man standing in our closet, we had been laying in bed for maybe 5 minutes when my hubby looked up, and then shoved his head under the blankets, he just yelled “I don’t want to live here anymore!” I asked him waht happened and he said he saw a man in a brown overcoat, with brown eyes and black hair just staring at him from our closet. I didn’t get to see this.
In Nov. of 2006 it was getting so bad, I had put up a new fake Christmas tree I had gotten in hopes that I would feel better. My husband and I had been separated and I was alone. While putting up the tree, I had placed some ornaments on it, stepped back to see how the tree looked, and found there were like “lighted” orbs falling from my ceiling. I was freaked out and ducking cuz I had no idea what was going on except there were lights falling over my head. Then I walked up to my tree and fully saw a lighted object doing like a figure 8 movement over my tree, then just disappeared.
There had been nothing happening in my apt. since the day I put up my tree, so, I was scared to take my tree down! The tree stayed up until about a week before I moved out in mid September.
There was only one more ghostly instance before I moved out, I was making something and needed my glass measuring cup, which was sitting on the counter. I went to grab the cup but miscalculated, and it droppped and broke on the floor. I went to grab the broom from the closet, but it wasn’t there.. any guesses on where the broom was???
Of course! Behind my bedroom door….. We haved asked neighbors and the manager of the apt if they had any info on the apt, none of the neighbors really knew anything except the bldg had been there since 1955, and the manager just kept telling us that someone was playing a joke on us…. yeah right…
I just hope whoever it was can find peace and leave me alone!!

Here’s what’s going on in my little house. I just moved in here 2 months ago with my dog pete i’m 28 and my dog is 8. my neighbors are always looking at me and seems to want to ask me questions but never does… one morning, one old lady with gray hair asked me, Do you get to sleep ok at night? i replied… “yeah why’d you ask?” she said the man that lived here before me died of old age and he always tell her that he will never leave this house.. i didn’t really paid much attention to that. but that evening… i feel very strange and i couldn’t forget what she told me. so wen’t to that old lady’s place and asked her what’s the story about this man that said he wouldn’t leave the house… so the old lady got some wine and she started talking… after a glass of wine.. i felt really dizzy… the last thing i heard was “he is still there”…. …..
the next morning… after our breakfast in bed…

Hey Guy… what are you the spelling cop?? getta life man….. Wooooooooo you found one incorrectly spelled word, get a life whiner. And Vivi, what are you doing here if you do not believe? You are probably too closed minded to have anything happen to you. This is the one of the only forums people have to share real experiences with people who are experiencing the same things. Yeah, there are some knuckle heads that just make up **** and post, but if you have any common sense, you should be able to decipher between real experiences and ****.

My mom bought a house in Highland Park over 5 years ago. Mom began a remodel/renovation and an Auntie and me went to help her out with packing and moving so that work could begin. We slept in the same room, Auntie on a couch at the foot of the bed. The next morning she told us that a man had appeared right next to the couch and walked across the room to the door of the bathroom and then disappeared. Since then she’s had this habit of walking into the house and announcing herself, saying hello and that she is not there to do any harm. After several months of this, Auntie and another lady were in the house (Auntie in the kitchen, the lady in the informal dining room off the kitchen) when a male voice was heard. He called my Auntie by name! No one else was in the house, everyone had left for lunch. Needless to say, Auntie doesn’t go to the house anymore. Workers have reported hearing noises of someone walking up the stairs to the second floor and walking along the upstairs hallway, but when they check no one is there. That quickly escalated in to seeing a “shadow” of a man in different areas of the house or even standing in the immediate work area. About two summers ago I had to go in and get some bags out of one the bedrooms upstairs. Going up the stairs I felt the hairs on the back of my neck, but I shook it off. After the third trip down the stairs, the feeling of being watched was so strong that I ran out of the house. Since then I haven’t been inside the house after dark. Even when I go in during the day, I take my dog with me. The most recent appearance happened just last week, the worker chased (yes, chased!)the shadow through the living room where it disappeared among some boxes close to the chimney. I have an appointment with the lead worker so that I can begin to document all of their sightings. The place has me freaked out, I have a low tolerance level for being scared. I can’t let my mom move back in (we’ve been out of the house now for 2 1/2 years, for the remodel) until it can be blessed or something. That thing has got to go!!! Any suggestions??

Ok, so with all of Los Angeles and it’s colorful history, the only listing here is a house ‘several miles from civilization’ with no address, that has rabbits in need of Rogaine. This is the best you could come up with? Several miles from civilization? Have you been to L.A.? Well the writers’ certainly were in no danger of losing a job to you during the strike. Keep the day job.

My family lives down in Jalisco Mexico.
My dad recently went down there and was eager for him to come home.when he did i was wondering what was new.
We started talking about how a while back most my uncles and aunts would sleep in the last room in my grandmas house & they wouldd all mention that they always felt something in that certin room.My dad then starte telling me about his expierence.he said that he would be sitting down in the room or laying down,and he swore there was someone watching him.
[this was one night]

[second night]
my dad has a problem snoring,so one night when he was sleeping,he in some way heard himself startingto snore,then out of no where…something just shrugged him hard enough to wake him up.
he struggled going back to sleep but just started to pray in his mind,he fell asleep.
but damn i was creeped!

These stories are fun to read, but lack too many details to really believe in. I’m open minded about ghosts, although I have never experienced any myself. Throughout my life though, I’ve had people who I consider to be credible tell me stories they have experienced, and I have no reason to doubt most of these people.

PS how many people leaving comments here are completely illiterate? Some of these comments are difficult to understand, they’re so poorly written.

The spelling police are cracking me up!! I agree but who really cares?
This whole bunny thing just sounds ‘off’, don’t really know any other way to put it. Definitely sounds like an urban legend, I might Snopes it. I’ve lived in LA most of my life & have NEVER heard of the ‘Boonies’.

I have lived in la all my life and never heard of this. I’ve heard of gravity hill, the haunted forest in Pasadena, the rossevelt hotel, spradra cemetery(actually been there) and many other places. There are places that seem far away from civilization especially in the hills and canyons. Just because they say it’s in la doesn’t mean it’s somewhere in downtown. La is a huge city and the areas around it are known as the greater Los Angeles area.

this is a nice list of haunted houses but they are not always easy or legal to visit at night. checkout for a list of places not so much buildings or houses but places, parks and forest.
