Time for a Change

It's October and, of course, that means it's time to focus on haunted places and things that go bump in the night! This year brings a change in our format due to some much needed updates, so look for lots of fresh haunts very soon! A map of the location of the haunt has been added when possible in each entry to make it easier to find them, but please remember many of these are private property.

Fresh Haunts

Welles House

 A simple house on Welles street in Wilkes-Barre, once again, made the news today as a 33-year-old man was caught breaking into it, claiming to be searching for ghosts. He was apparently expecting a battle, as he was carrying a Bible, a shutgun, a set of brass knuckles, and a pocket knife and had a sword strapped on his back.

Lizzie Lincoln House

The house on Lincoln Road in Exeter township known as the Lizzie Lincoln house used to be the scene of a haunted house tour, but is now owned by a local gardening company. Any stories of its being haunted are likely to be the result of the promotional efforts of the old house tour, rather than an actual manifestation, but the house definitely could win awards for general creepiness.

Ebenezer Maxwell House

This large, imposing house in Philadelphia certainly looks lke it could have inspired Charles Addams, creator of the Addams Family, but there's no Lurch or Gomez in sight. The house is generally included on ghost tours in the Germantown area, so there is undoubtedly a story to be found here - I just don't know yet what it is.
