Real Haunted House

Yellow House

Ashford, Alabama

When this house was first built, it was inhabited by a young couple and their newborn baby. After being fired from his job, the man decided that he had no choice but to kill himself and his family. Enraged, he took a butcher knife and sliced his wife and child into pieces, placing the slices in the refrigerator. The insensate man turned the knife and dealt himself a deadly blow to the heart. the knife and stabbed. Today, if there is a full moon, one may see the slices moving about the house.

I am from Dothan (which is less than 5 miles from Ashford). My ex-boss is from Ashford and used to speak of a yellow house that she lived in when her two sons were younger. She said that when Shane, her oldest, was a baby that the spirit which occupies the home would do her laundy…she would see her clothes and the baby’s clothes floating in the air while the ghost folder their clothes. He never touched her husband’s clothes and once she had Matthew (and Shane was no longer a baby) the spirit wouldn’t do anything for Shane. Not exactly floating body parts, but I can assure you that this story came from a credible source.

Katie you meant life not like right? but you’re right the story would sound better if they said you can see him stabbing himself or see him doing the whole act over again! come on if you make something up at least make it sound good! Ya know?

Em says:

March 29, 2006, 5:30 pm

And Wendy I get what your saying but you have to agree this story was bogus! Most on here are good and I believe! But this one is like me saying someone killed a pig in the field next to my house one day and then one morning when I was serving breakfast my kids bacon fell out the window and landed on the lawn. Now Wendy would you believe that story?

Cherish says:

March 31, 2006, 4:04 am

Does sound phoney, would be handy though to have a ghost who does your laundry.

chris says:

Destiny says:

June 7, 2006, 8:35 pm

If that were true, don’t you think there would at least be a movie about it?

Snake says:

June 22, 2006, 10:27 am

I don’t know about all of you, but I’m gonna start freakin’ out if human body parts start floating around. Hey, is Aaron a cannibal?

Snake says:

June 22, 2006, 10:28 am

I don’t know about all of you, but I’m gonna start freakin’ out if human body parts start floating around. Hey, is Aaron a cannibal? And is Melanie a John Cena fan?

Snake says:

June 27, 2006, 10:19 am

Human body parts? Sounds like a bowl of Wendy’s chillie!


July 6, 2006, 10:51 pm

I have heard of this story about the yellow house in Ashford Ala. but,the story I heard was that the man killed his family then killed himself and on a full moon you can hear the cries and screams of his family as he kills them.

April says:

August 25, 2006, 3:21 am

I don’t think no one is gonna see body parts floating around…that is so lame and stupid

This ghost story is way too crazy to even be true. Its really stupid and sad. No man how crazy he shall be will never cut up his family and place them in hte fridge. Get a better imagination dude!

McKinley says:

October 25, 2006, 2:45 pm

well I know a story kind of like that one except that the people were killed by a dog you see there was this old couple in which the woman was crippled and stayed upstairs all the time seeing as she had no way to get down and every day her husband would come home and walk up the stairs to check on her before making dinner and retiring for the night. One day while her husband was out to work she heard a creaking noise coming up the stairs,â? honey is that youâ? she called out knowing that it was too early for him to come home. No answer. â??Honeyâ? she called again as she began to roll her wheelchair around to the top of the stairs to see what was there. She turned the corner to find a big black dog staring at her growling and showing its teeth then it attacked killing Mrs. Owens, the wife, when Mr. Owens returned home he found the screen on the door had been busted and suspected something to be wrong as he hurried in he called for her, no answer and again no answer. When he made it to the top of the stairs he fell backwards over the railing upon seeing his wifeâ??s body killing himself to this day at about 4:17 you can hear the creaks in the stairs followed by rustling noises on the second floor then at around 5 a loud thump that ends it all

ghoststorylover says:

December 8, 2006, 8:00 am

Once for all, please respect each other and do not use name-calling. For people who complain that the story is stupid, make it worthy of your time to explain why the haunted place is such a hoax. Your rude remarks have been proved pointless for us already. Too many children view this website and become offended by immature comments. Be warned!

Danieâ?¥Homicide says:

December 18, 2006, 1:04 am

oh wow! i don’t know why ghost stories just so happen to be on ” Full Moons ” god thats pathetic.And what a sad low idiotic man to kill his own family for loosing his job, slices wondering about the house? wow wow wow! come on u can do better then that if u want to freak people out because no one will believe it!

I know Martial Arts says:

December 21, 2006, 10:45 pm

Hmm…yes, I can see now why it is called the “Yellow House”. I know every yellow house I have been in has slices of people floating around. Sometimes, if I’m lucky, all I have to do is open my mouth to get a slice, but most of the time I actually have to reach for one…but slices of people are my favorite!

Henry says:

February 22, 2007, 1:17 am

I have read some stories on this site, some I believe and some I don’t but they’re still spooky, this one though is false, a ghost apparition in chunks? No just no.

Karen says:

March 31, 2007, 2:08 pm

You know if you don’t like the story then don’t read it. If you think that it is stupid then do not comment.

Dag says:

April 1, 2007, 8:47 am

I’ll tell you what. The story wasn’t bad at first; yes, for the life of me, I could not comprehend that one sentence “the knife and stabbed.”- but then again, I ignored it taking it as a typo..??
The story however, as I said, not half as bad until I come to the end.. to the crawling, flying, moving slices in a full moon.
First of all – spirits do not appear to us in a manner of their death. They apper as they were during their lives. Yes, if such house existis, it such tragedy happened, perhaps the spirits are still attached to the place, but certainly not in a form of … slices.

pumpkin says:

July 6, 2007, 12:05 pm

i agree with wendy. i take this very serius. and dag when you die sometimes you come back looking like you did when you died. and this story could be true u never know.

mike says:

July 7, 2007, 3:18 am

bull bull bull the man was a bloodsactarian and was scared of blood he also was scared of sharp objects the real story is a 2 headed goat sent from hell stabed them to death with his goat toenail then gave birth to a green licking toad that people still use today roll tide

Yevette says:

July 30, 2007, 5:36 pm

loco says:

August 20, 2007, 5:08 pm

STUPID!!! This is by far the worst, stupidest- dumber than dumb ghost stories I have ever read. It wasn’t even worth posting except for a HUGE LAUGH!!

j says:

September 19, 2007, 12:18 am

!!!!Hae!!!! That story is the most queerest ever!!!!!Prank calling a pizza place gives you more of a scare come on!!

jason says:

September 20, 2007, 1:00 am

I’ve lived in Ashford 30 years and I have never heard of any such thing as the yellow house. I would like more information if it’s true.

justin says:

September 22, 2007, 6:36 pm

chopped up hands, chopped up heads; this house has more severed bodyparts than a bowl of wendys chilli!

Sean Anthony says:

September 23, 2007, 2:32 pm

Hey, guys, quit getting mad.How do you get mad from this story? It sounds crazy, but pyschotc people have been known to kill their families for idiotic reasons, even dumber reasons than that. So, please, save your crying because anythings possible. Even slices floating around, because it’s whatever the deceased person or spirit is thinking about is what we see, so it’s basically their conscious, their spirit, not thei mind.

phil says:

September 27, 2007, 10:22 pm

Megan from Ashford says:

September 28, 2007, 2:36 am

In the late 70’s I lived in Brentwood Tn. with my parents and brother who is 5 yrs. older than myself. The house we lived in at the time had been a hospital during the civil war. When I was around 8-9 yrs. old I woke up for no reason to find a soldier standing at the foot of my bed. I know know I was not dreaming and I could see this soldier in detail. He had on a uniform that had tassells hanging from his shoulders. He had his right arm bent to his left side with his hand on top of of sword this was bent like a sword was during those times. As I looked up toward his face there was nothing but a haze or smoke and a face could not be made out of it but on top of this haze sat a hat with a long feather on the right side. I could feel that this spirit was watching me and knew that I was looking at him. He floated not walked but slowy drifted out of my room then down the hall and went to my brothers room. I got worried for my brothers safty and went to his room to find nothing was there. At the age of 8-9 yrs. old I had not known the story of our house or the history of that area. My brother also had a visit from something around the same time. My brother was 13-14 yrs. old and we had not been a church going family. One day my brother came out of a locker room after a basketball game to have a lady he had never seen before approach him and asked if he ad been saved, my brother said he did not know if he had or if he ad not. The lady asked if she could pray with him and my brother agreed. My brother tells me that something went through his body that felt like a electric wave had passed through him and he felt completely at ease. He returned home and begain to tell my mom and dad tht he had been saved and how great he felt, my mom and dad could not believe that out of nowhere my brother was feeling so strong about what had happen. My brother was telling everyone his teacher his freinds and other family members about his new look on life and at such a early stage and no church background given to us by our parents it was strange. My brother tells me that is when his fight began with good and evil. He was fighting a battle to be good and do right and evil was always trying to get at him. My brother was in his room one night listening to his stereo with is headphones on laying on his waterbed and he decided he was going to test his faith. So he said out loud to himself in his room if there really is a devil the next song is going to be Rocket Ride by Kiss, now at this time Kiss was the biggest thing going in music but Rocket Ride was a song that never was a radio played song, sure enough the song he was listening to went off and Rocket Ride came on, my brother states that every hair on his body stood up and he was frozen still in his bed only to have something lay down next to him, he said he could see anything but could feel something next to him and as he looked at the bed he could see an imprint in on the covers that something was there. My brother did not know what had happened to me and I did not know what had happened to him till 29 yrs later we were in Brentwood for the holidays and went by the house for old time sake. I asked if he had seen experianced anything in that house and we shared stories. I asked who the lady was that saved him that day he said he had never seen her before that day or since and he belives it was his gaurdian angel. I am not telling this story for a religous reason in any way. I am telling this story because it is the truth.

Ravyn says:

November 14, 2008, 4:11 am

I used to live in Avon nearby. There is certainly a legend to this particular house, but when I passed by it (people do live there, I believe), all I got was a slightly nervous feeling. It’s located somewhere near the downtown area if anybody is bored enough to go.

Beth Parker says:

April 5, 2009, 4:09 pm

where is the location or address would be even better. or even a phone number. would like to get permission and go there and check it out.

Beth Parker says:

April 5, 2009, 4:12 pm

hello there, can anyone tell me the location of where the house is located or the address would be even better If anyone knows how I can contact the owner or caretaker for permission to visit the house.
Thanks for any assistance.

AliceGay says:

May 8, 2009, 10:56 am

Ok I am in Ashford too…I have never heard anythng about this..chuckles


AliceGay says:

May 8, 2009, 11:06 am

Ok someone from Ashford want to post the address…there is gonna be a full moon tonight..I’ll meet you there!

AliceGay says:

July 8, 2009, 12:41 pm

After checking over the local area of Ashford I have found NO history of this story. No murder of this nature or much of anything else happening in this small town.

Haley says:

July 20, 2010, 9:38 pm

Does anyone have directions to this place?

Alicegay says:

July 20, 2010, 11:13 pm

Haley, I live in Ashford and there are No such stories about the house. I have done a bit research with people who have been in this small town all their lives.The house exist but the people living in it now live there in peace and quiet. No one here knows of any murder there.

Anna says:

August 15, 2010, 7:51 am

I used to live in Ashford. And I’ve heard stories of this house, but never this story, so I’m guessing it’s complete BS. However countless times while living there I heard stories about a man who was infuriated that he could not take care of his family after losing his job. he began to drink a lot and beat his wife. And one day he found out his wife was cheating on him, he felt the only thing he could do was kill her. So he did so, however he did not cut her into pieces, he just killed her. Then he killed his son because he wanted no memory of her. After a lot of crying and drinking, he proceeded to kill himself because eh didn’t want to bare the pain knowing he killed his true love and his son. <—That's just a legend, and I lived there as a child, so believe it or not. I've never been to the house, I don't know where it's at, I've only heard the legend.

carrie says:

October 12, 2010, 2:26 pm

plz peices of dead ppl moving about the house I have had many a hauntings and been ghost hunting and never did I see someone should become a fiction novelist for creating this story.

Lester Trawick says:

April 10, 2013, 2:48 pm

Of course there are floating pieces of meat; I always had quite a hand at puppeteering. Visitors to my home are always welcome to dinner and a show. I would advise you, though, not to mock my performance. Unless you prefer your meat chilled…

Researching in Paranormal says:

June 9, 2014, 6:19 pm

Look one way to settle this. Let me and my group investgation there. If something is there we will find it.

Megan says:

August 5, 2015, 9:03 pm

The house is haunted. But no by floating pieces of meat. You can hear people moving around and see flashes of white early in the morning before the sun comes up. The same people have lived there for my entire life. They just deal with it and move on with life. Nobody sleeps in the living room though. I made that mistake as a kid.

Megan says:

August 5, 2015, 9:04 pm

Its on Broadway street.

samuel says:

February 12, 2016, 3:54 pm

Since there ain’t none of gadsden or Winston county I’ve lived in both.. In gadsden two blocks from my house is a road where an old witch used to live it has a cave a pond and whatnot on it apparently the witch used to kill kids and toss em in her pond.. I’ve heard stories never experienced anything except that a satanist lives there now and raises turkeys to sacrifice in the cave you can see the altar and all but its posted no trespassing so yeah. In Winston county the bankhead forest is a cabin a lady last lived in during the civil war she seduced union troops then hung them on her porch they finally hung her the cabin isn’t in great shape but if you go you can feel her and see the soldiers hanging there.. Supposedly
