The Ghost Woman Who Opened Doors

Posted on April 24, 2008

Hello, in  1965 my parents  bought a farm in up state New York , we moved there from Vermont.  That summer I turned nine years old. The farm hadn’t been lived in since 1952.  The barn sat next to the road, and the house (a big old farm house sat 500 ft beyond that over a little wooden bridge). The kitchen was the first room through the door. Speaking of doors, the kitchen had eight, every room had at least two of them.

We were told that the  original owner’s wife used to unlock and lock every door as she went thought them. That included the bathroom and every night before bed.  When she died, as was the custom at the time, she was laid out in her casket in the front room for viewing before burial.

I got a feeling like I was being watched the first time I went into the house.  Not much happened for awhile. Things would disappear  and turn up at some time later in a different part of the house, mostly my stuff.

As time went on sometimes I would hear someone call my name, and when I’d go check no one had called me. My older sister had a scare, she would start screaming in the middle of the night  saying she saw a woman standing by her bed.

When I was 16  I went to bed one night, my room was on the second floor, and around a big stairway.  I had one door locked and the hall door shut and went to sleep. At about 12:20 at night I heard some footsteps coming up the stairs, and around the entry to my room door and stop. All of a sudden the door  knob turned and the door flew open and hit the wall. There was no one there.

I started locking  my door to the hall every night.All went well for about three weeks. Then one night at 12:20  I heard the footsteps again up the stairs, around the landing to my door, the door knob turned  and someone shook the door and that was all. The steps walked around the landing and disappeared.  This was repeated  two more nights, then all was  good. I used to hide under the blankets.

The last time it happened I was home alone. I went to bed at 10:00 pm.  Well, at 12:20  I woke up to steps coming around the landing to my door. The handle turned , but  then I heard a key turning in the lock and the door flew open and no one was there. I screamed to whoever it was to leave me alone.

When I checked my door in the morning the lock was still in the locked position and no key in the lock. I left it open after that.  After that every thing seemed to settle down. This happened many years ago. My mother still lives in the house, and it still gives me the creeps.   Thanks, hope you liked my true story.

    Hello, I wrote this story and would like to add something I didn’t put in this story. The day before good Friday 1978 , my father stuck a 12 gage shot gun in his mouth and pulled the trigger . It took my whole family many years to get over that.. To this day there are some parts of the house that I will not go into. My mother still lives there to this day. I beleive my farthers spirit has something to do with this, And my older sister passed away in September of 2007. thank you for reading.

    about eight years ago my x-wife was in the shower as i was in the bedroom getting dressed, the door of the room was nearly closed but not all the way it had that little crack. i was facing my closet door which had a glass mirror. All of a sudden i heard a giggle thinking it was my wife. i tell her to hurry, were running late. thru the mirror i see a shape of someone looking straight at me and still giggling. As i approach the door i still see the shape and when i open the door noone was there. i knock at the bathroom door and open it and my x-wife was still in the shower. Later that night when we go to bed,, and we were sleeping i felt some pressure on me and as i look up i see a woman on top of me. She was having her way with me. As i open my eyes and see her she then disappears. from that point on i have seen her a number of times.
