“Why is that man sitting in the chair over there?”

Forget the haunted houses with their fake ghosts and the man with the chain saw noisemaker this Halloween - just visit Old Richmond to get a good scare. via The Herald-Coaster

Relax, it's most likely a lucid dreaming event, I used to have them.

I have lived in Richmond since age 5, so for 18 years i have experienced Richmond and Fort Bend. I have been to all the oldest houses and buildings in search of something paranormal. I found the most haunted place in Richmond when i wasn't even looking for it! My mother did alot of work w/ the CPA(citizens police acadamy). She became very close w/ all of the Richmond officers and the chief of police. About 10 years ago the richmond police department moved renevated and added on to the old richmond police department from the early 1900's. This place is beyond haunted, it is overloaded with ghost! My mother convinced the chief of police to take me on an exclusive tour of the police station(places the public cannot go). He took me to the dungeon where they made the "colors" crawl through tunnels and kept them chained up. He took me then to where they executed people by hanging, a stairway leading to a release hatch door. He and other officers told me stories of their encounters at the police department. One officer told me a story that, "he was working late one night at his desk(which was in the room where the hangings took place), and out of the corner of his eye he saw movement at the top of the stairs. When he looked he saw a mist at the spot where people where hanged. It proceeded to drift down the stairs and into another room. Another story came from one of the janitors that cleaned the station, she told me, "she always felt something, but shook it off until it started to mess with her. She said she was vaccuming one night and all of a sudden the vaccum lost power. She checked what was wrong and someone had unplugged her vaccum. She assumed she had pulled too hard and pulled it out the socket. Until this started happening every night, until one night when it happened she ran to the socket and saw the same mist dissapearing into another room. One story in particular really got to me because it came from the chief of police himself(a ghost skeptic). He said, "he was working late one night and he was walking down the hall to his office when he felt someone behind him. When he turned around he saw a trail of mist behind him". I have been in the dungeon and felt a presence and energy. And when i stood in the spot where so many were hung i have never felt a feeling like that in my life. It was unreal, there was soo much energy surrounding me and soo much pain, hurt, and suffering in that spot. It almost made me collapse it was so powerful and energetic. I have been to the moore house, and all the other old "haunted" locations in old richmond and fort bend. None of the other locations came close to the experience i had that day at the Richmond Police Station.

You felt a presence because you had been filled stories by the police officers, and then you transferred their story into your own experience.

It happens all the time.

No man, you have no clue what you are talking about, i really don't care if you or anyone else believes me. I know when there is energy in the air, and when im just spooked from a story, theres a big difference. i have heard stories from credible sources in other "haunted places" all over the state of Texas and never felt anything like this while i was there. You sound like the typical skeptic, always trying to give a logical answer, close minded. I pity you!

I myself am followed by spirits am I scared? No. I live in sugar land & my bed always shakes & I check to make sure the washer or dryer is turned off which they are. One time I was getting ready for school when my mom came in my room and as she stood there, I turned around cause the mirror I was looking at myself with, had a reflection of a dark shadow so I turned to look at her and that shadow soon moved across my room and exited through my window. My mom and I both looked at each other like "wtf?". My family is gynxd or something cause every time a girl turns 15 in our family, someone passes away. I am truly interested in finding out what exactly my ancestors did to put this curse on us?

Curses don't exist. The 15 yr old thing is just a coincidence.
