|I lived at 48 South Fisher,
in Blackfoot, Idaho. Actually, I grew up in that house. In the
early 60's one of my brothers had decided to establish the
basement as his bedroom. It was not many days after that when he
came up one morning terrified and had a horrific story to tell us.
During the night he swore that a ghost had appeared to him and
tried to pull him out of bed. He grabbed his hair in an effort to
drag him up the stairs. We laughed at his story and thought it was
just a crazy nightmare. He refused to stay there anymore. One of
my other brothers was so incredulous that he volunteered to stay
in the same room.
Nothing happened the first night nor the second.
Our speculation appeared to be correct: it was just a nightmare.
But a few days later, my second brother also came up in the
morning to tell us a horrific tale. It was a carbon copy of my
other brother's story. He also refused to sleep in the basement
anymore. After the second incident, nobody in my family ever slept
there again. Nobody dared go down to that musty room again! We did
use it for storage, and I swear I got a cold chill whenever I had
to go there for anything. I have no idea if it is still haunted or
if anybody sleeps there. It would be interesting to find out!
I neglected to mention that:
Somebody had actually died in the house before we moved in.
neighbors told us that a young boy died in an upstairs room.
enough, it was the room I slept in, BUT I was the one brother who
never saw the ghost!!
