The year that I was 13 my family bought 40 acres of beautiful property in the northeast corner of Oregon.
It had everything a family would want, a creek, a pond, gorgeous views & plenty of trees & bushes for kids to play in. It even hosted it's own resident ghost.
Mom & Dad picked out the perfect spot for a pole shed, with living quarters, that would become our temporary home, while building a log house up on the hill. Early that fall, when the evenings began to turn crisp, we noticed some mysterious occurrences.
We had moved in before drilling a well, so had no running water. Consequently we had to carry water from the pond for our menagerie of animals.
One dusky evening, while at the pond we heard people calling "Karen, Karen" We quickly packed the water in that night. It continued to happen, so there was no lolly gagging at the pond in the evenings.
Sometimes the sent of a sweaty man hung in the air.
While we, "Noisy children" where in school & Mom was at home alone, she would often have things pulled from her hands & would see a little girl sitting on the ladder leading up to the loft.
Even though I heard the calls for "Karen" I never truly believed we really had a ghost until one day in the middle of the afternoon.
The bus dropped us off as usual at the end of the driveway.
I was the first one down the driveway & to my dismay, saw a little girl running around our yard. She had long blond hair & wore a long dress.
I went in the house expecting my Mom to be visiting with a lady friend & said "Mom who's here."
We had no visitors, only a ghostly apparition, by the name of "Karen"
We believe "Karen" was a little girl from the 18 hundreds, traveling with her family. She must have become lost on the property we later purchased. Her parents ghosts have been searching for her ever since.
Children have always felt safe & comfortable around my Mom, so I believe, Karen liked to play at our house while we where in school.
Do you have any ghost story's?
