History of Hinsdale House
The Dandy family say they experienced so much supernatural activity during their time in the house. The house was already over 100 years old when they moved in, so maybe this explains why there were so many ghosts!You May Also Like
Strange ActivityThe family began to notice strange things going on in the house, including weird phone calls. This even extended to chanting coming from the nearby woods. Initially, they put these down to overactive imaginations, but things were about to get worse…
ApparitionsSoon, the family members started to see apparitions in the house, including a woman in white and some disturbing human–animal hybrids. They even saw what they deemed to be demonic, non-human presences and entities. Perhaps the most chilling story is when the family saw some unfamiliar and odd faces staring at them through the windows. When Phil (Clara’s husband) ran out of the house to confront the faces, the faces somehow reversed and he realized they were now staring back at him from inside the house…
Violent PoltergeistsThings began to get worryingly violent soon afterwards, with items levitating around the house and one object being forcibly thrown at one of the daughters by an unseen force. Phil succumbed to a state of amnesia and was unable to remember some of the most terrifying events. Lights were now turning on and off, banging noises could be heard filtering through the walls, and apparently there was the sense of an evil presence in the house. Father Alphonsus, a priest from St. Bonaventure University, came to the house to perform an exorcism. A team of paranormal investigators accompanied the priest, and all say the levels of paranormal activity were through the roof. It only took a few days, however, for the hauntings to begin again in earnest. The Dandy family had had enough and decided to leave the house for good.
Ghosts in PhotosJim Kelly, who lives locally, took a number of photos of the grounds around the house. Upon developing these photos he noticed various apparitions that appeared to be from different time periods. The faces of some of these individuals and entities were quite alarming, but Jim has not suffered any untoward hauntings. Rather, some benevolent and peaceful spirits have, he says, attached themselves to him. They still appear in photos he takes at home and in other locations.
