“The great tragedy of this century is that a man can live his entire life without ever knowing for sure if he’s a coward or not.” From “Power Play” by Joseph Finder
Moved to a new gate today. Too busy setting up shop to really notice immediate surroundings. Did notice the old house across the road. Didn’t give it much thought.
Some traffic. Primarily moving stuff. Heard some weird sounds late that night. Creepy.
Land owner shows up. Says the house across the road is haunted. Some kind of murder took place there in 1895. Come on Man. Don’t screw with me like that. And don’t tell my wife. She’ll freak out.
2 am. Gaby wakes me up. Says there are strange sounds outside. She’s scared.
“Are you serious?”
“Yes I’m serious. There’s something out there.”
“I thought I heard something the other day. Probably just an owl.”
Decided to check the place out. Walked through the ancient house and other dilapidated buildings, or what is left of them anyway.
The landowner stopped by today and I asked him about that house. Says it is probably the home of the original settlers. Possibly built in the 1880’s. Notice the water tank is made of wood. That gives some idea of the age.
A google search turned up a few facts. This area was the site of the first Polish settlement in the U.S. The area was settled by Poles, Czechs, and Germans mid-19th century.
That part of Europe. Didn’t Dracula hang out in that area. Just sayin.
The original owner of this land was the Banduch family. Banduch is a Czech name.
All interesting stuff. Doesn’t change the fact that we still hear strange sounds in the night.
Gaby………..next time you go to town, stop by the church and pick up some Holy Water.
