Anybody ever hear of Howell Mi? I'm sure the chances of that are slim, but my town is pretty famous for being haunted.

Howell was built over an old plantation, the MacPhereson plantation. my house is haunted, as well as my friends. hers is really famous though. it was built on top of an old graveyard and when they moved it they left some of the old graves on accident (They had to build a road in that area and now theres houses along it). so she has ghosts of 2 twin girls, a bank robber, and a guy in armor that walk up and down her stairs, turn on the bathroom faucets upstairs, and clang dishes in the kitchen. They even give tours of her house now. they've even gotten photos from their house that have been in the paper numerous times (I'll have to get the pics next time I go to the library). Once I spent the night there and we saw the guy in armor walk past the room door, go to the bathroom next to the room, and leave the faucet running. It was the creepiest thing I have ever seen in my life.

As for my house, our basement is haunted-my dogs attack air, like theres something there, the car doors in our garage open and slam shut at night, doors randomly open, lights turn themselves on, all sorts of strange stuff. I havent gone in my basement for 10 years about because its so creepy. you feel like you're being watched. this is my basement lol, it looks like the typical scary movie kind:

I dont mind my house being "haunted" much because weird stuff only happens in the basement, upstairs its normal-which is odd because I always figured ghosts haunted entire houses, not just one area, but I could be wrong? Theres other places in our town that are haunted too. the oldest elementary has the ghost of a kid in 1930's clothing that's apparently the founders grandson who died on the lawn. Kids who have never heard of the story still report it to the office-my mom used to work there. and our courthouse has ghosts of chicks dressed in white with bright blue eyes apparently but I've never seen them.

our town also has an old insane asylum thats supposedly haunted. It later was rebuilt as a TB asylum and is now torn down again. My friends who skateboard go up there and skate in the tunnels and say its scary as hell. I even searched the internet for it and found a site that listed 2 of the places I mentioned above:

Howell - courthouse yard - People have mysteriously been hung on large tree branches, people have seen spirits, and have heard ghostly moans and screams. Sprits were seen in windows and in the court house yard. Females wearing all white and very pale, blonde hair and blue eyes have been seen. (people claim they have red eyes now, but this site says blue)

Howell - Hillcrest Sanitarium - Several miles outside of city limits, there is the remnants of what used to be an asylum, and later housed patients with TB. Various sighting, usually of children occur. The actual hospital has been torn down, but tunnels, and various outbuildings are still there. Strange noises are heard and lights are seen sometimes.

So I'm wondering, does this sound like a place thats really haunted, or are incidents like the ones I mentioned easily exaggerated? And has anyone ever heard of Howell? original.gif

Stephanie ,  Is it just the basement you feel is haunted?

I thought we had a thread about the Hillcrest Sanitarium here somewhere but I'm sorry I can't find it .

Yeah its just my basement oddly. We know the guy who built the house, so I don't think anyone was killed in it or something. If I had to guess Id say the ghosts are probably from the plantation or something that used to be there.

thats freaky but kool that you have a town with a bunch of haunted places. ive never heard of it though.and yes, it is possible for one room in a house to be haunted.  my old house's basement was haunted. i would always hear very strange noises coming from other rooms in it. also, the upstairs was haunted a bit too. there would be stuff flying off shelfs and stuff. one time, the tv turned off by itself and then made a charging noise like it was gonna blow up and then turned back on again. also, somethings would be gona from the place u lwft them and then would be there again later. you should try to record some activity in your basement. that would be cool.

Hi Stephanie, I live in Grand Blanc, MI, I'm not sure if you've heard of that town, but I have heard of Howell.  I've never heard of the town being haunted though.  Thanks for telling your story!

cool, I've heard of Grand Blanc original.gif A lot of Howell is haunted but people tend to ignore that because its history with the KKK is more well known =/

Hi Stephanie,

I grew up in Brighton and spent many nights at Hillcrest about 10 years ago, I never experienced anything out of the ordinary but have heard stories of places in Howell, Brighton and Hartland being haunted.   We use to go to old cemeteries in Brighton which was fun but, again, we never heard or saw anything.

Hi there fellow Michiganders  original.gif  Rochester here  original.gif
I remember hearing stories (when I was younger...lol) about Howell and the old sanitarium. Tell me whats up with the KKK thing, I remember that too. Is it still prevalent there? Ever heard of the Holly Hotel that is supposed to be haunted too !!
I have experienced the 'ghost' thing and when thinking back, I get freaked out. So don't invite me over  w00t.gif
I'll read about it though...I prefer pretend haunted houses  laugh.gif

The grand dragon I think died in the early 1990s and hadnt been active since the 1970's or around there, Howell isnt racist at all anymore and I dont think much of the KKK still resides here now

This is all fascinating, even though I'm not from Michigan (though I have been to Lansing once and I'm hoping to go back this summer. original.gif)

I do have to ask, though, why a ghost in armor?  That sounds kind of weird for the U.S. (though there were a few men in armor round these parts long ago.)  Are there any stories to explain why he's dressed that way?

The kitty made me do it!

I'm from Pinckney Michigan, just south of brighton and howell, and yes I have heard a lot of those stories. Unfortunately the first thing that comes to mind when I think of Howell is the KKK, and not its ghost stories.  hmm.gif

But yes, a very strange area in michigan nontheless.
