MY FAMILY AND I LIVED IN A HAUNTED HOUSE

Years ago, back in 1973, to be exact, my childrens’ father and ex-husband and I decided to relocate back to our hometown of Mankato, MN. We looked at several houses, but this one really caught my eye as well as my fascination with history. It was a partially remodeled home that had been built in the late 1800s. It is the house that I referred to in my Forever Nearby article titled, “We’re Definitely Not Alone.”
It was while residing in this house that my (then child, son) experienced the terrifying presence of Shadow People in his bedroom.) Today, my son is an adult with a family of his own, yet he continues to attest to the fact that his experiences with “A Shadow Man” definitely occurred. Of course, I didn’t take his reports seriously at the time, but I believe, in retrospect, that NOT coincidentally, my son’s then severe asthmatic problems all but completely dissipated once we left that house. His experiences with the paranormal were not the only ones our family experienced during our five years living there. It was our personal experiences that served to trigger my adult interest in the paranormal.
Yes, the house possessed plenty of old time charm, but I was happy to move out five years later. I also believe that, (NOT coincidentally) no one has remained in the house longer than five years before or since!
The house to which I refer (pictured above) is located at 619 N. 4th St. in Mankato, MN, but is a private residence and so trespassers are not welcome.
