Can you give any more details about the house's location.
I would love to check it out too.
If you remember the Old Sunset drive in between Draffenville and the dam. there is an indian burial ground across the highway up on the hill behind that there used to be an old homeplace. When my wife and I were out sightseeing one day we drove up to the old homeplace
(about 1/3 mile off 641 ) she began to freak out to the point she almost threw up with fear before I could turn around and get away from the area. I never figured out anything on the history of that place, and I think that the road has been blocked with a steel cable now .
Do you know anything about this area?????
I was told that satan worshippers lived there...i dont remember the roads name im sorry

Try the cemetary on Jackson School Road. It listed on the Ky Registry of Haunted Sites. Some friends of mine bought some ghostbusting equipment from TAPS off e-bay and we hauled out there to do some "sleuthing". So I went along just to watch them be stupid because I was a mega-skeptic. Man! Did I get an eye openers! When we got there, the dogs in the neighborhood were barking and howling. It was an ALMOST full moon, we were wandering around. Our camera picked up an "orb" and so being the skeptics that we are we went to see if there were fireflys. It was a little baby's grave. So we just sat there and filmed it, shocked and surprised, and this little orb just floated around and dived in and out. It was sad and sweet and fascinating all at the same time. All of a sudden the dogs started howling and then just like a switch flipped - dead silence. And in the far corner of the cemetary this big dark shadow came out and started towards us. Dead silence - very erie!! It scared the crap out of us! It was MENACING! We headed back towards the truck. It started coming down the other row of gravesites parallel to us. We sped up, it sped up! So we cut trail and ran to the truck. We spun gravel getting out of there! The big black shadow was standing right inside the row of graves watching us. It scared the living crap out of me. I've never gone back and I've never gone ghost hunting again!

One night I was walking through my field to go to my neighbors, and she was meeting me halfway because I didn't have a flashlight, well I saw here light and for some reason I looked at my creek through all the brush I saw a light, my neighbor asked me if I had a light because she saw it too. Well we were walking back and the light showed up again, it was glowing, no beam coming off of it, then it started bouncing and took off in a straight line. The next day I went down there and no foot prints to be found, since then I haven't been down there at night, it scared the crap outta me

One evening I walked over to my neighbor's house in Benton on Circle Dr. and had an experience that I cannot explain. My neighbors two daughters were playing with me and I was chasing them down the hall several times acting like I was going to get them and tickle them. They would run in their room, close the door and start laughing. About the third time I went into the parents room and hid behind the door and while I was standing there the room went completely cold, the hair on my arms and neck stood straight up, and it felt like someone was standing right behind me. I quickly left the room and didn't say anything to my friend for about an hour. When I did I said "Have you ever felt anything strange in this house?" He replied "Every damn night!" he also told me that every night in bed he would wake up in almost a panic like someone else was in the bedroom, he would go and sleep on the couch and everything would be fine. Then one night his youngest daughter was sleeping in their bed and woke them up standing in the bed pointing at the floor saying "Daddy get those cats out of here!" The point to this story is that the former owner of the house died in that room, had a bunch of cats, and my ass will never ever go back in that room!!!

I have heard the same thing. It used to be the old Benton Hotel. Someone was killed there during the early 1900s. The Tribune did a story on it a few years back.

Ghost don't live in this world but at times can get "bits and pieces" from it. Maybe at the time you turned cold and your hair stood up he or she thought you were trying to hurt the children. They will sometimes try to reach thru and "help".

Common misconception, that Angels are ghost. Angels are not ghost. We had a ghost here for a while and it touched me a few times and spoke to my children once but it is gone now or at least quiet.

Spirits. Whether angels or demons. I don't call any of them ghosts. Just like God and Jesus Christ. They are Spirits.

Both sides of my family came from LBL and they all have stories of the things they saw Between the Rivers. One of the stories involved a cousin of mine. He was walking to church it was on the hill close to Dixon cemetery, this is near Taylor Bay. As he was walking up the hill a woman holding a baby stepped out behind him. He nodded to her and continued walking he turned to ask the lady a question and she had vanished.

The other story involves a mule team and wagon on the road between the little drummer boys cemetery and the Blue Hole. One of the men who was a former resident and his dad were hauling a wagon load of tobacco to Model, Tn. All of a sudden the mules balked and wouldn't go any further. His daddy got down and slapped the mules with the reins, took a lead rope and tried to lead them on, they wouldn't budge. This went on for a couple of hours, till it was getting on about dusk. He said this thing that looked like a white ball the size of a pillow rose up by the side of the mules. It floated there for about a minute and then Popped! When it did those mules took off running, crashed the wagon and slammed into a tree breaking one of the mules necks and badly injuring the other. This man had lived there all his life and till this point had never seen anything quite like this.

My family lived there until everyone was forced out in 1962 and both sides said there were area over there where crimes had occurred and people had died, that had really scary crap happen.

Upstairs at the national store in benton does have parnanormal activity, I've experienced it as has my granddaughter.
My own home ( and the grounds) has quite a bit of parnormal happenings as well which date back to civil war & gold rush days.
People have seen bigfoot/s in this same area.
What used to be the Blockbuster location in benton has had activity which is related to a farm that used to be on the land yrs ago.
old Benton school has reported activity and again I have experienced it. I went there for a school function (i was from a different elem school) yrs ago,,long story short, the girls bathroom & cafeteria was active that day. I found out yrs later that school was said to be built over an Indian burial ground.
Angels are just that, Angels. No correlation between a spirit who has passed over to an angel..two seperate entities. same with demons..altogether different. and nothing do much harm without permission...fear is giving permission in a sense.
what the churches have taught us about life & death as we know it is false. And i'll stop there as not to delve into a discussion on religion.:)

I believe in paranormal activity but the old benton school is not haunted, nor was it built on an indian burial ground. that is a local legend.

i was sitting at home one day flipping through the tv channels when i saw a show on the history channel that was supposely showing real exorcisms and i watched it for several minutes when a deer head i had hanging on my wall for probably 15 years fell off the wall and hit the floor breaking the antlers. was this just good timing or paranormal forces!!!!! i know it sure made me wonder if it was because i was watching that tv show.

My parents got a divorce when I was 11 or 12. My dad moved back in with his parents and he got visitation every other weekend. I use to hear woman's voice calling my name. Then one night I woke up in the night and saw a lady just staring at me. I turned the light on she would disappeared. I started sleeping with the tv on at night. My dad came in one night and turned it off. I woke up with the lady leaning over the bed saying my name and asking if I was scared. I jumped out of bed and turn the lights on and she disappeared. I was looking through family photos and I found a picture of her. She was my aunt that accidentally shot herself. It was her old bedroom I was sleeping in. She died before I was born. I once asked my dad if he believed in ghost. He answered yes why do you ask? I told him that I saw her. His response was do not talk to her. She had been practicing witchcraft before she died.
