Real Haunted Houses

Real Haunted House

The Brown Mansion

Pittsfield, Illinois

After exposing himself to children and having sex with animals, Tim Brown was given the choice of joining the army or serving seven years in prison. Rather than being punished, Brown used a copperhead snake to kill himself in one of the mansion’s upstairs rooms. Brown’s nude silhouette can sometimes be seen in the upper left window. Furniture is often reported to be heard during the night, and sobbing is often reported on Saturdays–the day of his death.

Ok guys I live in a small town called Griggsville about 8 miles away from Pittsfield and I think the house may be accualy haunted considering the people that have lived in the house have blocked off the front and live the back. I have been in the house and the front is not even is liveable condidions any more but the whole thing about the furniture is BS people dont lie close enough to the house to even hear the furniture moving to report it. Here is a photo of the house

This story is very weird. And what would possess this man to have sex with animals? Was there not enough women in his area? He was a twisted man with twisted thinking. But no, this story is not scary at all, just weird and twisted.
