Real Haunted House

The Lady of the Lake (a.k.a. The White Rock Lady)

Dallas, Texas

Soon after this lake was built in the 1920s, a girl was on her way home when she decided to cross the spillway to save time. Halfway across, she slipped and consequently drowned. Nowadays, it is said that she hitchhikes in the area. After riding in the car for a while, she vanishes leaving a wet spot.

I live about 5 minutes from it…it’s right off of US Highway 75, exit Mockingbird Lane and it will take you right to it.

I have been there a billion times…nothing creepy has ever occured.

This is a true story, my mom and her best friend have told me and my brothers this story several times. My mom’s best friend’s mom was driving from work late at night one time, in the 80′s, they were teenagers. My mom happened to be spending the night at her friends house when her mother got home and told us about something strange that had just happened to her. She was driving home and she stopped at a store near by to pick up a drink or something and a woman walked up to her and asked if she could give her a lift home, she did, they got in the car and and drove off, next she looked over to right and the woman was gone, but left a wet puddle on the seat. She freaked out a little and went straight home to tell her daughter and my mom. I’ve asked my mom’s best friend and she admits its true. Creepy!!!

One night in my house in texarkana, Texas I was trying to go to sleep when the tv was off, it turned on all by itself! I told my mom and she said, it was probably your imagination but I promise you it was not my imagination.

When I was younger (around 18 or so) I took my dog for a walk at Flagpole Hill, which is close to White Rock. I am the type of person that laughs and jokes about stupid people and crazy things – this is real though. I felt a presence, as did my dog. So much so that I looked around, and everything felt it was in slow motion – you know – like when you are scared. The dog started backing up, and whining. The dog was truly frightened, and NEVER had I witnessed the dog doing this sort of thing. Later in time, this same dog would have to be put to sleep for acting “crazy.” (tounge hanging to the side/ always bleeding at the mouth from acting/ playing strangely). She was always “humping”, but remember – she was a female dog – not male. Never really accociated this with the White Rock event at that time. I never heard much talk of ghosts, and we did not have the internet, so I didn’t know this was considered a haunted place. The next morning, I went by there (drove by only) and it looked like a small tornado went through – trees were broken down – I cannot remember times – this would have been around 1989 or so. I think I felt the presence because I was alone, and my mind was clear – not focused on any distractions that day. I think that is when spirits connect with us. Plus, I was very rundown, and overloaded – another sure way the spirits enter – when your in a “sub-contious” state, I believe.

1989 – Derecho moved southeast across North Texas. This storm produced hail to baseball size, wind gusts to 100 mph and 1″ to 3″ of rain. Five people drowned from flash flooding, 22 people were injured due to high winds and many homes and businesses were damaged or destroyed.

I am not sure, but it may have been the one I found on the internet, listed above.

I practically grew up at the lake.

We’d get there at about 4pm and used to have camp-outs there… i’ve never seen anything strange.
