More than my fair share. Caught voices on my recorder and have seen what I and the 3 other people with me saw a ghost or spirit. It's def a rush.

i took my younger daughter and her friend on a 'haunted' tour of the old library one halloween years ago when they were too old to trick or treat but too young for real haunted houses. the volunteer guide worked at the library and had for years. she told me after the tour while the kids were playing and out of earshot that some of the library workers believe it really is haunted. she said they have come in to find books off shelves - no certain books mentioned. they found chairs pulled away from the tables. they found the rolling stepstools in different places. she said they would hear knocking from upstairs as they were closing up and getting ready to leave. she never told me if she believed it was haunted but said she wouldn't be on the upstairs floor alone.

Hmm, I don't think I've ever heard anything about the old library before.
i hadn't heard anything about it being haunted before that tour and nothing since, either.

When I was younger I lived in a house on leitchfield rd(2 houses down from estes elm school) and seen and heard plenty so did my parents. It was a 2 story old house that apparently was build over what use to be part of the grave yard that's over there(said the landlord) but there was a few "grave size" holes in the back yard but anyways, use kids slept upstairs and u could here boot sound footsteps on the stairs and once I woke up and seen a woman in a gown a few feet from my bed, closed my eyes scared and when I opened she was gone.. My dad had seen one of my moms gown actually floating and laid across some boxes in their bedroom, later I moved downstairs in a room across from theirs, I never seen anything there but the small hook that kept it close(broken doorknob) always magically un looped itself and the room constantly stayed cold even in summer, not freezing but it was very noticeable, one of my older brothers seen a woman standing in the back yard in the corner of the fence and thought it wad the virgin Mary(considering he wasn't that old either lol) but of course kids, we went running after her but never seen her again... Sorry for the long story but had to share... I have more if u wanna hear :-)

In the same house... A cousin stayed the night(few years older than me) he said he woke up and seen a little boy sitting in the corner in a chair just starring :-0 lol.... This is a diff house but my dads grandma lived out in the country somewhere, some small rinky house at the bottom of a hill.. Well the story on that house is a middle age couple had lived there and the wife was pregnant like 7-8 months and the husband was a drunk and constantly beat her and tormented her saying the kid wasn't his.. Well she went into the back bedroom(nursery) sat in the rocking chair and killed herself(knife), so stories in my family was that my dads uncle had woke up to see blood stains everywhere and his rocking chair(not the original of course, but a lazy boy I think) was rocking... He got targeted alot I think because he himself was a drunk but anyways, my sister had stayed the night up there alot and she said one night she got woke up by pans banging against eachother and dishes clinking, she walked in the kitchen and seen who she thought was Gene(a family member living in another room) he was a hefty size guy and had the "pregnant look" gut.... Well she walked in the door way and said something like "why are u doing dishes in the middle of the night" never answered or turned around so she just went back to bed, the next morning she asked him what he was doing and he said I was sleeping lol so she took it as the woman was in there so she never stayed the night again lol

I've heard of those but figured they were probably lame. Have you ever been on one?
Been on two actually, and they're definitely NOT lame! David is good friends with someone I know and he's a really good, legit guy. He's studying history at Brescia and he's EXCELLENT on the tours. The tour he gives is great - full of Owensboro history, cool facts and chilling tales of the unexplained. David's talked to many business owners who have had experiences in the older part of town. I could go on and on about how awesome it is, but you really need to go for yourself. I love the paranormal and his tours were interesting and fun.

Ok, here's mine: A great-great grandfather was a surgeon in the civil was. He operated on the soldiers in the upstairs area of his large home. His wife spent hours trying to clean any blood stains off their wooden floor to no avail. She even painted over them and they always bled right back thru the paint. Years passed and the home eventually burned down because of a spark from the fireplace. Another home, my great-grandparents' and eventually my grandma's, was built in the exact spot. My mom took care of my great-grandmother as a child and moved in with her at 7 years old until she went to college. She helped her around the house, bathed her, read to her and was her primary her caregiver. My mother recalls many incidents that are chilling. She told me she's seen doors open and then slam shut WITH the doorknob turning. She had things get thrown at her. And often they'd hear moans of pain from the upstairs when it wasn't occupied. Lots of people have experienced things in that house. It always terrified me.

When your actually looking to find spirits or to go on a "hunt" by yourself, it's best to look and research places where tragedy has occurred or something along those lines.
