An Introduction:

To Quote:

“Hill House, not sane, stood by itself against its hills, holding darkness within; it had stood for eighty years and might stand for eighty more. Within, walls continued upright, bricks met neatly, floors were firm, and doors were sensibly shut; silence lay steadily against the wood and stone of Hill House, and whatever walked there, walked alone.”

…The Haunting of hill house by Shirley Jackson


Before I start, I should say that the reader may get the full impact of this if one were too read it under the same circumstances, I wrote it in. In a darkened house, alone, past midnight.

Trust me, it will add a whole scary dimension to the story…


Unlike Shirley Jackson’s story, the house haunting events written below, although a bit fictionalized, are all based on actual experiences.

Not my own (to my chagrin), but by others, I have had the pleasure to know personally enough that they have confided them to me.

The house described actually exists, the Froes Family, father who built the house, frail wife and large brood of children, were real people. Their lives and situations are as described.

Although in my opinion, their old house has every right to be haunted by something, it has never given up its ghosts to anyone yet.

The ghostly events depicted in this chronicle have occurred in real life, by my own people, at several different houses, all quite old, all located in the same general area of Wales.

The story below may not be an incredibly horrific ghost story….

But then, when supernatural things go bump in the night in real life, it does not necessarily have to be…..

Now does it?
