Owners of a creepy old house that reminds someone of Amityville say that they cannot get rid of the house because people believe that ghosts live in it. So if you always wanted to have your own haunted house, this is your chance.
The 4-bedroom house in Youngsville, Louisiana dates back to the 1930s, and during that time it has gained a rather eerie reputation. Real estate agent Sylvia McLain, co-owner of McLain Investments, says she posted pictures of the house on Facebook so that someone could take home for free. However, due to the fact that former residents have repeatedly complained about “strange incidents” in the house, no one wants to take it even for free.
Sylvia admits that she has heard “all the stories” that an old woman’s ghost lives in the house and says that one former tenant even called Ghostbusters to try to clean the house of spirits. But she adds that the owners would like to “keep the history of the house,” therefore, they offer it free to anyone who wants to “move it to another place for a restaurant.” They themselves want to build a new house on the ground.
Don Vallot Declaut, who used to live in the house, claims that the house is really ghostly and the spirit of her great-grandmother Adele often appears in the kitchen. Don said her family owned the area since 1860. She explains: “We believe that the ghost is Adele, but she is not evil at all. She weighed probably 100 pounds and was only 4 feet 9 inches tall. She lived to almost 90 and loved to mess around in the kitchen. She was known for it, and when we lived here, we often heard her strumming pots, as if something was on the stove. One could hear someone raising the pan lid, but there was nobody in the kitchen. ” Sylvia, who went to school with Don, said: “I don’t know if there are ghosts in the house, but I know about the rumors surrounding the house. I know that people talk a lot about the fact that there are ghosts in the house. Don and her brother always tell the story that their great-grandmother was stirring something in a saucepan when they played cards in the living room. That is, there are quite pleasant stories that ghosts live in the house. ”
