"GHOST HOUSE ON
Sometimes you don't have to go far to find
a haunted house. It can be a building you've passed
hundreds of times -- on your ride to work, while
going to church, as you head toward a nearby shopping
center or make a trip to the mall.
In this case, the haunted residence is an old semi-detached
home that was built about 100 years ago. It still
stands, on University Avenue inthe city limits of
Newark, Delaware, but is quite a bit different than
it looked a century ago. The paint is peeling, its
functional shutters are gone and its side and rear
yards have been torn out to make way for the sleek
and colorful cars of its transient 21st century
college-age renters . . .
Within its creeking frame, this old house knows
it can't hold out forever. It will suffer from ill
fortune and be gone one day as sure as a lucky gambler's
winning streak disappears faster than it materialized.
But thanks to a recent resident, we at least have
captured the paranormal events that occurred in
the 'University Ghost House' . . .
Kurt had mentioned something quite a few times during
our interview, so I'll state it at the beginning
of his story: Kurt is 'not a wimp.'
At 6' 4" and 290 pounds, it wasn't the kind
of thing he had to mention, and I told him so. Nevertheless,
he stressed, that he wanted to be sure I, and the
readers, knew hat there weren't many things that
could scare him . . .
The mood changed dramatically when we switched the
focus of our conversation to ghosts.
'Let me tell you this up front,' Kurt said. 'There
were five guys in this house, all huge football
players, no wimps. And we all were very skeptical
about ghosts. In other words, we were unbelievers,
He and his teammates had lived in the three-story
home for one year, during the mid-1990's. They had
heard talk, he said, about strange things happening
inother houses in the area, but they didn't pay
'After all,' he said, 'every house on the block
was creepy. They all looked haunted. They needed
painting, they had dirt basement floors with stone
walls. The floors creaked and the wind blew through
the cracks in the windows.'
Of course, from the first few days they moved in,
strange things started to happen. 'But,' Kurt admited,
'we didn't put everything together until much later.'
. . . The student sleeping in the first-floor apartment
had a problem with his clock. No matter what time
he set the alarm for, it would go off at 4:07 in
the morning. Each time it occurred, he would reset
the alarm, and it would still activate at 4:07 a.m.
'We all thought the clock was broken,' Kurt said,
'so he threw it out, got a new one. And when he
plugged it in the same thing happened. It also went
off at 4:07.'
. . . Kurt told his best friend that living there
was beginning to bother him.
'I told him,' Kurt said, 'I was almost afraid to
walk alone from the first floor to my attic room.'
His friend replied, 'I don't know hoow you can live
in the attic. It's bad enough on the second floor.'
Kurt said he admitted, "It's spooky here. But
we have to live here, have to say. It's no big deal.'
. . . Kurt's first encounter was in the form of
an apparition that appeared at the foot of his bed.
'It was a tall, shadowlike figure,' he recalled.
'I woke up and lifted my head. At first I thought
I was dreaming. Then, immediately, I was so scared.
Even if I wanted to scream I couldn't. I was utterly
breathless. It had on a black cloak, with a hood.
I could just about make out its mouth and nose.
After a few seconds, that seemed like a lot longer,
I began blinking my eyes trying to clear them, moving
my head. Then, with what was a tremendous effort,
I was able to move my hand, and I smaked myself
in the face, to see if I was really awake.
'I'm like really, really scared. I flipped on the
light, but there was no one there. The heat was
on high, but I noticed it was frigidly cold in my
room. I could see my breath. I left the light on,
got up and walked downstairs and slept on the couch
on the first floor. The next morning, I told the
guy in the second floor room . . . what happened.
He believed me, because by now he was scared to
death to live in that house."
Kurt told he others a few days later. Two laughed
and the other, the clock guy, was
quiet and didn't say anything.
. . . 'For meit was especially scary,' Kurt said.
'I was all alone in the attic. There were three
guys on the second floor and one in a room off the
kitchen. But I was up there all alone -- out of
sight, out of mind. There also was this small door,
set way in the back of my walk-in closet, that I
could never get open. My father tried to help me
open it when I moved in. He even used a crowbar,
but it was painted shut, so we gave up. We put a
small refrigerator in the main closet, in front
of the sealed door. We just gave up on the back
portion, but about this time I started to wonder
what might be in there.'
Just before leaving for a two-week Christmas vacation,
Kurt said he pulled his refrigerator out into the
room and opened its door to air it out. He gathered
his bags of laundry and clothes and began to head
out his bedroom door.
'Suddenly, I heard a creaking sound,' he said. 'I
turned and my first thought was that the refrigerator
door was moving. But it was fine. Then, it sounded
like a 500-pound church door was swinging open on
rusty hinges. I was freaked. I dropped my bags and
ran to the first floor. I was in a panic. I grabbed
one of the guys and pulled him back upstairs and
told him to sit with me a few minutes on the steps
outside my room.
'When there wasn'[t any sound, we went into my room
and looked into the back of the closet. There was
light coming from the small, sealed up door in the
back corner. All the paint was cracked and chips
were on the floor, like somene had pried it open.'
