Real Haunted House

The Paulding Light

Paulding, Michigan

After a train engineer was hit by a train, he still wonders the area in the form of a light. The light can instantly change colors, disappear and appear quickly, and change directions swiftly. Witnesses claim that it will react o the headlights of a car as well. Some accounts occurred during daylight hours under normal circumstances, with no apparent light-producing object nearby.

I have actually seen this! Its totally real! It was really creepy, because my family and I went to see it. My family went to see one night but i didn’t go with them because it sounded really scary. But the next day I went with them and it was during the daytime. The light wasn’t there at first but then it appeared. Its at the top of a hill, it used to a road but the rain water washed it out so now there’s a little stream running across the road. We wanted to see it up close so we started to walk up the hill, we had just passed the little creek when it started to rain. Up until this point I had been looking at the light but when it started to rain I looked away to talk to my dad, when I looked back the light was gone. Every one that we talked to that day said that every time they tried to walk up there and see the light it would vanish. Once we got back to the cars the light appeared again. The light actually does change colors, I’ve seen it changed to red, yellow, and orange. I think that maybe it turned green but it was when I was like 12 and now I’m almost 19. I know it wasn’t a traffic light becuase there were no roads up on the hill or even close to it.

I have seen this it is real I have seen it twice and both times it has completely amazed me it changes from blue to yellow to orange to green and other colors to. Also my Uncle and Cousin went to see it and my cousin is 30 now so he was like 20 and they stayed after everyone else went home and they shut off all the lights and the car and everything and waited then they started to see things moving in the woods and carring shovels and stuff he still says its one of the scariest expiriences of his life.

The light is located in Watersmeet, MI. It is located off of Robbins Pond Road. Kind of interesting, back in the mid – 80′s I was a waiter at PowderMill Inn in Bessemer, MI. One morning I was serving breakfast to a group of individuals out of Chicago, IL who were actual ghost busters. They told me they were in the area to investigate the light. I told them I had been there but was very skeptical of it’s origin, thinking it was just actually tail lights from autos. They were there for three days running tests and experiments and finally told me they could not figure it out. Very interesting. You be the judge.

Thank you, I think I will be the judge. After reading this story, I believe that it is a fake. There are too many scientific exlanations for the happenings, and the people’s stories of what happened. It’s all too vague, with little or no detail. It’s probably all a lie, and not a good one at that.

My family is from near by Iron River, I have been to the Paulding light about 100 times and usually always see it. I believe that it is VERY REAL. I’ve been there in the worst of storms, all times of night, whatever. I’ve attempted to walk down the “powerline trail” and it goes away. Its a really neat place to go!! (Plus, not far away is the $Casino$!!) I just think its real, once you go there I guess you will understand….

I was raised in the U.P. and have spent many nights checking out the paulding light.sometimes their is a dim light that turns as bright as the sun sometimes one and sometimes two,and they seem to walk the the road and as it passes by it is for an instant and then it is gone.We have tried to chase it,sometimes it appears to be low to the ground but it is actually alot higher in the air than it appears.if you look through a field scope it looks like a rasberry spinning,and if you go to the bottom of the hill on old 41 around the bend there is a swamp just to your left on a clear night look up into the sky and you will see the same object spinning.i don’t think it is haunted but it is definetly cool.sometimes its there sometimes it’s not, but don’t be disapointed just go back to see it is truely one the great wonders of the world.you actually think you are seeing things.and try explaing what you have seen to people and they think you just smoked a joint.Its a great place rock and roll man!p.s. the cops in the u.p. are nasty, dont have an old empty beer can or you know what kind of seed from the previous owner of your vehicle that was over looked back in the 1970 or you will pay a big fine and sit in the **** house for nothing.remember this go to iron county vacation and leave on probation oh yea and watch out for the iron county witch hunt takecare

Yes, “The Light” is on Robins Pond Rd, up near Watersmeet. My friends and I stopped there after playing
at the casino. It was very weird and spooky. The light bounced around like it was a light off of a lantern. It chnaged colors and moved in and out, fading bright and dim, then to nothing. We thought we would walk up the hill to see if it was someone playing a joke, they would have left footprints on the ground. As we were working up the hill, the light seemed to move towards us some much it freaked us out. We ran back to the car, turned our brightd on and it disappeared for a few seconds, then reappeared. It also seemed to responded to light.

Has anyone considered that it might be swamp gas? uncle fester said that there was a swamp nearby; maybe the gas is reacting to some light source somewhere. It would help explain why it reacts to headlights. Though, I’m not sure if swamp gas does react to light. I’ve heard it does, and it can change colors.

I heard that there were toxic chemicals or something radioactive in a barn nearby that was causing the lights.

The light is real!!! everytime I went to see it to prove it was **** it was there, and it always scared the hell out of me!!! Just the feeling you get from looking at it makes you feel so strange. If you dont beleieve and you want to go see it. Never fails!!

The Paulding Light is not real. You are all a bunch of butt-holes.

Lacey,

Get off the drugs. The light you saw was a reflection in the rear-view mirror.
