I have a friend who told me about a vacant lot that has a 7 to 8 foot high privacy fence on 18th street in Idaho Falls.  He said there is a tree in the middle of it with what looks like there could be part of a foundation where a house once stood.  He said there are no birds or squirrels of any kind near this area.  Also, he said that people have seen a house that isn't there.  He had a friend he took to the lot and the friend drew a picture of the house even though there is no house.  Has anyone ever heard of this?

This is what I found on Shadowlands Haunted Places:

Idaho Falls - The Lot - Legend has it that a house once stood on the spot where now is only a deserted lot, fenced in and hidden by the overgrowth of trees. There is no longer power or water service to this lot, but many people walking by have heard the sound of running water and seen the leaves of the trees light up as if the house were there and the rooms were lighted. Several witnesses have been inside and have reported that there are spirits of a family murdered by the father roaming around the yard. After roaming and exploring, a young man and his brother were spooked by sudden screams and tried to leave the lot, he knocked the ladder over and tried to climb the inside of the wall. He felt as if there were nails hammered through to the inside and he was being scratched. When his brother righted the ladder, they both climbed over the fence and escaped. The young man still has the scars, but there are no nails or nail holes in that fence and none of the neighbors had heard a thing. Also on several occasions that the 'apparition' of the house that stood there would appear with lighted windows. Upon further surveillance, figures could be seen passing by the windows and opening the front door. Children could be heard playing in the front yard, but could not be seen because of the high fence.

Hope it helps!

What are the coordinates of this lot? Or possibly the nearest cross street at 13th? Thanks.  ~Jackal

I was told this place is in the center of town and the next street is 17th Street.

Good point.

I've never heard of such a house or haunting before.  It would be great if someone in the neighbourhood could have a webcam pointing to the spot.  You never know.
