Huntsville - Old Dairy Farm House:
A viewer writes;
The house has a lot of history. It is about 130 years old now and sits right on Pineview dam. It used to be a dairy and the foundation of the barn still lies in the back. The barn was moved a short distance and became a hotel called the Jackson Fork Inn. (I would be curious to know if the employees had ever experienced anything). To start with the back bedroom, which seems to have been the master at one point, was always very cold no matter what time of year. My parents originally used it as their bedroom and my mother soon became very ill. Moving to another bedroom at the opposite end of the house seemed to fully remedy this. There were bizarre noises throughout the house, and doors and windows seemed to have a mind of their own. Previous owners had used it as a summer home. Their son went to the home in the winter, to study for school without being disturbed, and one year he killed himself in the house. As time went by things more and more happened.
We often saw the figure of a young man walking through the house in our peripheral vision but when you turned to look directly at him nothing was there. My father once saw him so solidly that he thought it was my brother and yelled "I'll be off the phone in a sec". The young man walked over to the couch in the adjoining room and sat down. When my father walked in to the room no one was there. He called my brother to ask why he had left and of course the answer was "I've been home the whole time". This is pretty much the extent of my memory of the experiences. I was very young.
The older couple(with no children) who bought the house from us is a whole different story. For this reason I feel that the suicide of the boy may have had something to do with anger at his parents. I can not remember all the incidents exactly as described to me but I will try. Everything started out similar to us, funny noises, strange chill, doors miraculously unlocking themselves. Soon the wife had become very ill in the same back bedroom with like symptoms. Again moving the location of the bedroom helped this. Soon after they were awoken to a violent earthquake. Objects fell from the walls, the bed bounced on the floor and the house sounded as if it would collapse. Upon speaking with the neighbors, no farther than a small town street's width away, they learned they were apparently the only home affected by this local earthquake.
Being collectors of interesting antiques, the couple one day brought home a beautiful crystal chandelier. They meticulously cleaned the chandelier, taking each dangling crystal off to be washed separately. After washing, the crystals were replaced and each clasp inspected to make sure they would not fall off as it was hanging. They were shocked to find it the next morning, crystals removed and set neatly in a circle on the floor, clasps still closed. This is everything I remember. Hope you enjoy. I'm sure he is not the only spirit residing there. - kate Hardy
