    I went to the Winchester house just this summer! The tour guide said he was being possessed so we had to stop the tour!

      Interesting I was there in June. Upon entering I was extremely dizzy and ended up with stomach pains. Once outside I was fine. What part our the tour were you in when that happened?! I have no desire to return.

    Hey Donna!
    My mom used to say she always heard footsteps on the basement steps in her old house when no one was around. It scared her to the point that she finally moved out. Very creepy!
    Great job as always and see you soon ~Jeremy
