Water Valley, MS> A lot of people ask me about my penchant to tell ghost stories. I love a dark and mysterious story of the supernatural and it all goes back to the house in Water Valley that we lived in for several years. It was known as the Bell Witch House on Wood Street and is supposed to be the home that the Bells moved into when they left Tennessee. I do not know if this is true but it is a creepy house and something was going on there that was beyond explanation.
My first encounter with a ghost was about 6 at night and the kids were playing downstairs. Playing chase, I headed up the hall, grabbed the bannister, swung around and headed up the staircase. Halfway up I froze.
A shrouded figure walked across the landing at the top of the stairs and disappeared into a bedroom. I could see no face, just the hooded figure.
Everyone in the house was downstairs.
There were lots of thumps and footsteps on the stairs at all hours, voices laughing during the night and a feeling of being watched at times.
This house and what happened there has left a deep impression on me (as you can see).
Some other strange things happened there that I will relate at a later time, but I enjoy a strange tale and have put a lot of work into my Spooky Campfire Stories category.
Does anybody know how to make the label categories hold more than 15 post?
