A Haunting In Corning
No Question

United States

#1 Feb 7, 2012
I was just curious about possible haunted places in the corning area. My girlfriend and I bought a house on Third Street two years ago. The first few months went without incident. Nothing too solid has happened so it's hard to say but theres been alot of small things to point to paranormal phenomena. Don't worry, im not crazy and i wont be saying I've seen ghosts or the furniture floats or anything like that, it doesn't. For the first year or so it was just noises but it's a very old house so I assumed it was just settling or normal old house sounds. Things have progressively gotten stranger. I won't go into the boring sound details unless someone specifically asks. I will stick to the most "haunting" events. About 6 months ago I got out of the shower with the windows and vanity mirror steamed over. As the room started to cool and the mirror cleared I saw a very clear small childlike hand print. We have no kids and rarely have kids in the house. And none of the kids that are ever here are out of diapers so they definitely wouldn't be using the bathroom...or tall enough to reach the mirror for that matter. I brushed this incident off as just something odd and just cleaned the mirror and haven't had that problem since. A couple weeks later my girlfriend informed me she had been waking up most nights in that time frame feeling like someone was standing at the end of the bed watching us while we are sleeping. She also woke up one night terrified because she said she woke up and swore just as she woke up she saw a flash like when a picture is taken. We turned on lights and I searched the entire house. Including the basement and attic and found nothing. We've heard doors shutting when we are alone in the house and sounds like someone is walking from her side of the bed all the way around to mine, while we are awake. Obviously nobody is there. We've heard sounds like someone is walking up or down our stairs while we are on the couch and can see the stairs but theres nothing to be seen. Then a few days ago I was cleaning while my girlfriend was working because we had family from out of state coming to visit. I picked up a small rug that's placed in front of our oven near the basement door. A small pile of dirt fell out of the rug so I took it outside to try to beat some of the dirt out of it. When I came back inside the dirt was spread out instead of in a pile and there was what stuck out clearly to me as a footprint in the dirt coming from the direction of the basement(the basement door has a dead bolt lock from before we moved in). The ball of the foot wasn't too bold but I could clearly make out the shape of all five toes, big to small like a humans would be if they were barefoot. It was so vivid that I took a picture of it and sent it to a couple people to see what they thought of the picture, not telling them what I thought I was seeing. Everyone I sent it to replied about the foot print. I left it on the floor to show my girlfriend because it's one of the most "paranormal" things that have happened. Im not scared to live here or anything because nothing violent or malevolent has happened. I use the quotes around "paranormal" because i don't want to be seen as one of those ghost worshipping weirdo's just looking for a way my house could be haunted. Im not. I would prefer a quiet house with no activity but it's happening whether paranormal or not and i was just curious if other people have any interesting thoughts or stories. looking forward to some interesting stuff. If you want the picture of the footprint or wanna share your story email me at [email protected]

My house is the same way my house was built in 1818 and it is on the same st in the same town I believe that there are some haunted places in the little town i call home and my house has had doors shutting doors being open then slammed but we have never been harmed. Paranormal thing have happend all over Corning and PA. And I don't understand why you put quotation marks around the word paranormal because paranormal active IS real .

I realize you're joking, but if you're referring to Corning Inc, you're also mistaken; I know several black employees in good jobs. Please don't incense unnecessary race issues.

My parents house in Berkshire NY had been very active, cleansings help for awhile and activity starts up again. My sister has been told that she is a beacon for the dead. I sware that the other side has a revolving door in my patents room. I myself have seen an old man who is skinny setting at a bar in the living room. My Dad sees an old lady by the door to the basement. He also has seen a young woman holding a young child glide into his room and up stairs which is actually a closet. He has been held down in his bed many times. My sister has been scratched while on her computer. She has had friends come in to investigate. They actually carried on conversations with many spirits. They received full sentences on the spirit box. They had to stop due to an evil presence. The cleansings continue.
