Real Haunted Houses

Real Haunted House

The McAlmond House

Dungeness, Washington

This two story pioneer mansion is said to have been built in 1861. Allegedly, the house is haunted by poltergeist that are triggered by the presence of teen-aged girls. In one report, a family with two twelve year old girls spent the weekend at the mansion. It is said that the house creaked all night. The next morning the door to the unoccupied bedroom could not be budged. It was discovered that an extremely heavy Victorian desk that had been in the center of the room was pushed tightly against the door. No human could have done this because there was only one door in the room and the windows were locked from the inside.

i think this is wierd.i get freaked out easily but should you really believe these things really happen?they could be making up a story just because.which most people probably think that and its probably not really true unless your the type of person who believes in these types of things.

Dear pink,
That is why you have to go and check it out for yourself to figure out if it is true i mean who cares if no one else believes u as long as you know.

Hi! I would really like to visit this location, but i need directions. If someone could help me out with that i would really appreciate it! I was also wondering if any Northwest ghost/haunting enthusiasts had any information about the ‘Blyn Witch’s House’? I have heard countless stories about the location but none involved the actual directions…. Thank you!

Ok now, where did you get this story. Because however did they know about the desk against the door, if a human couldn’t have done it. So I’m guessing the ghost or the spirits came back and move the heavy desk inorder for the door to open?
Oh and whatever happen to the teen girls?

Apparentally, teenage youth are “hyper sensitive” towards spirits, or in this case, poltergeist.
I’ve heard, and researched, many stories to do with the subject.

I know the current owner of the home, and I’ve been in the house a number of times. I also have had many ghostly encounters in my life. I sense nothing in this house, and have never experienced anything. It is a fasinating historical home, and it’s not open to the public. Many rumors about the house, but I don’t believe anything is there.

Wow…”Ditzy” your screen name sure does fit! The story clearly stated that the windows were locked from the inside. Explaining how no one would have been able to exit through a window and lock it behind them. I hate it when people immediately look for reasons to discredit the stories of the paranormal, without thoroughly examining the evidence. In this case not even paying attention to the words written right in front of their face. Thank you Ditzy for setting the perfect example of a skeptic who is not (obviously) informed, who then makes a statement of absolute certainty. May all the ignorant skeptics of the world be haunted forever.

OK, let me clarify. The girls were my daughter Sheryl Roberts and her friend Angel Ritualo. I was the one who shoved the door open, and it took all my strength: the desk felt like it weighed a ton. I theorized that this was a poltergeist because I’d read about how they occur when teenage girls are around. We’d also had an earlier paranormal experience with Sheryl. But there could be another explanation. After this happened, a friend told us that a ghost of a man in 19-Century clothes had been seen a few times in the parlor. Turns out a man had died in that parlor sometime in the 1870s-1880s.

My Great Grandfather, Elijah, a sea captain, had the McAlmond House built in 1861 in New Dungeness. He developed the farm and built the dikes in the low lands using Chinese laborers. His son, Henry (my Grandfather, also a sea captain,) took over the farm in the mid 1890s. His wife Mabel gave birth to three girls and two sons who grew up on the farm. The middle girl, Thelma, was my mother who married a Naval officer. Most summers from 1926 to the early 1940s we visited my grandparents on the farm spending a couple of months there. There were no ghosts, poltergeists or phantoms in the parlor. No one ever said anyone had died in the sitting room. All of the original family is gone now, but none died in the old house. When the wind roars in from the ocean through the Straits, the old house creaks and groans like a ship at sea, to the delight of the most devoted of ghost-story addicts. A few years ago I visited the new owners who graciously showed us the improvements they had made inside the house. Sorry, no ghost stories emerged. A visit to the museum in Sequim enlightens visitors about the history of early Dungeness and the surrounding area.
