im sorry could this story be more vague. im pretty sure if you find a house old enough, there is a good chance someone died in it. and an even more likely chance if it as old as the civil war.

First the pest House is located in Knightstown, IN. It is said to have been used during a small pox outbreak. Many supposedly died there. There is a story of a women answering the door when no one was home. It sure looks creepy enough to be haunted. I used to drive by every day on my way to work.

Does anyone currently live at this house? What is the actual address of this place. Has anyone witnessed this or have an actual footage? Just curious.

Yes there is a married couple that lives in the pest house at this present time. I live right beside this house and I have seen ghost by first hand. 2yrs ago a reporter came to the house to speak with the lady of the house a lady of color opened the door and quickly said ” no one is home ” and shut the door. The reporter walked away toward the driveway and that is the reporter met up with the owners of the house. They then was informed of the lady who opened the door. They searched and noone was in the house.

I think the word (HAUNTED),is far fetched ,and looked at in many aspects.I have always beieved that anywhere a person has rooted their self ,or have spent a large amount of time at,their is always apart of them left there,spiritually.The pest house was a place where people with noncurable infections resided.People spent their remaining days there ,so as far as being haunted no ,but i could almost state my life that there are many people still calling it home,but no threat to no one.

I have seen this house from the outside & yes it does look to me as if it very well could be haunted. My husband’s Grandmother had a sister that was placed there, & she died there. His grandparents are religious people & I believe in the tales they’ve shared with us. But pretty much of Knightstown knows of this house & has been by it, just to check it. I’d like to see for myself of this haunting.
I also live in a house that was built in the 1900′s & it’s haunted & my kids have encountered with a little boy. I have personally heard noises upstairs when noone was home. Toys will go off by themselves & this one room that noone has used in the past 37 years has an eeeerie feel to it, I’d like for my house to be checked out. On Valentine’s Day is the most active time I have seen & heard things in our place here in Knightstown. I have been told that there was a little boy died here possibly from TB in the 1900′s my son who’s 7yrs’ old has never been told any of this & he can describe events & the little boy.
