Atchison Haunted House up for Sale

Written by St. Joe Channel in Feb. 2016

Sallie House

A northeast Kansas house with a spooky reputation is on the market.

Owner Luke Smith listed the Sallie House on Zillow’s real estate site for $1 million.

The Atchison, Kansas home at 508 N. 2nd Street has been called one of the most haunted places in the country.

The house gained fame in the early 1990s after the family that lived there had several disturbing encounters, including unexplained scratches on their son.

The family moved out in 1994 and since then, paranormal enthusiasts and curious visitors have explored the inside of the home for themselves.

Galveston’s Most Haunted?

Or, Learn More About Ashton Villa

Galveston’s Haunted Villa

Written by Michael Callahan in Feb. 2016

Ashton Villa Galveston

February 23, 1969:

On this day, it was reported that the Ashton Villa had been designated a Texas landmark, and one year earlier it had to be saved from demolition. The mansion was originally built in 1859 by James Moreau Brown, who was also key to the formation of the First National Bank of Galveston. According to Galveston.com, the villa was the first of many: the first house to be built on Broadway Boulevard, the first mansion to be built on the island, and was one of the first private brick residences in Galveston.

The villa is not open for public tours but is available for rental. However, be careful, the place may be haunted.

According to galvestonghost.com, the ghost of Miss Bettie Brown has been seen standing in the gold room, standing at the top of the staircase, and even playing the piano. And, she’s not the only ghost in the villa. The site is also haunted by Miss Tilly Brown-Sweeney, who was the victim of an abusive marriage. Now, the mansion was also used as a hospital for Confederate soldiers during the Civil War, and some have seen these soldiers on the grounds.

Exciting Plans For 2016

Or, The Manuscripts I Can’t Wait To Share

2016, A Bright New Year

Trilogy1800x2700

Since last fall, I’ve been working on a new story in my Red Plague series. The original trilogy is complete, but I couldn’t stop thinking about this world and these characters. I have written, and am now editing and revising a new novel with new characters set in the Red Plague world.

Blurb:

Ex-wrestler Callie Crawford wants to protect her infected boyfriend, Levi. She’s kept him safe from others and himself for four months, but then a zombie steps in front of her vehicle and she’s cut off from Levi. When computer nerd Roman Duran admits he has a cure for the 212R virus, Callie will venture into the wilds of apocalyptic North Carolina to heal her boyfriend. Along the way, she realizes Levi isn’t the man she remembers and Roman might be more than he seems.

Look for updates in the next few months. The next story in the Red Plague series will be out this summer.

Also on my plate is a new series tentatively titled The Prophecy Series. Once the Red Plague Series concludes, I have an idea for a new paranormal series set in the American Southwest.

Blurb:

Powerful witches and sexy shifters fight an evil horde of vampires led by Oleksander the Destroyer.

Connor, a damaged vampire hunter with a cursed future, and Alina, a newly orphaned young woman with a terrible secret, will unite with a common goal–kill the horde.

Haunted Mardi Gras Mansion For Sale

Or, Care To Own A New Orleans Mansion Complete With Ghost?

Mardi Gras Landmark and Haunted New Orleans Mansion For Sale

Written by Eileen McEleney Woods in Feb. 2016

 Haunted Mardi Gras

As the snow piles up, a weary New Englander’s mind can’t help but turn wistfully to New Orleans and the kickoff of Mardi Gras. Now you can own a piece of the grandeur amid the fanfare in New Orleans’ Garden District.

Magnolia Mansion, a purportedly haunted bed and breakfast, is on the market at a reduced price, $4.9 million, Top Ten Real Estate Deals reports. Businessman Alexander Harris commissioned the home for his young bride, Elizabeth “Lizzie” Johnson Thompson. The property is a popular site for weddings and features themed guest rooms that range from the elegant to the fun — Lafitte’s Hideaway, Bordello Moulin Rouge, Vampire Lover’s Lair, and Gone With the Wind, to name a few.

Folks flock to New Orleans for Mardi Gras, but this home has other draws. It’s one of the most photographed homes in the city, and in 2011, USAToday.com named it one of the “10 Great Places to Sleep with a Ghost.” Guests have reported encounters in which friendly spirits tucked them in at night and played with their phones and their shoes, according to various news accounts.

For some folks around here, another winter of shoveling is scarier.
