Real Ghost Stories

You Read That Right

When I first started TwoCansOnAString.com true ghost stories were a regular feature on my blog.

Over the years, TwoCansOnAString.com has gone through some changes . . . then reverted back to the eclectic clutter of an attic full of treasures. This was fine, but I’ve always felt something was missing . . .

Passion . . . my passion for creating a place where family and friends gather to share their stories . . . You know as well as I do that telling true ghost stories are part of any gathering . . .

When I did the post about S’Mores, I thought of camping and campfires . . . sitting around the fire pit in my own backyard . . . it dawned on me how much I miss sharing real ghost stories here.

So . . . I thought it best to throw caution to the wind and return to my passion of writing ghost stores . . . Real ghost stories I hear from others who have had true paranormal experiences that have scared them, fascinated them and creeped them out.

Well . . . let’s see how this works out!!

Please join me on this journey . . . and create your own cozy place where your friends and family can gather in your own backyard to share your personal ghostly encounters or those you’ve read here and want to share.

Are Some Houses Not For The Living?

I don't like to admit it, but I believe this is sometimes true. Rachel wasn't feeling well one evening and got up to make some toast after everyone else went to bed and were sleeping soundly. She was in the kitchen waiting for the toast to pop up out of the toaster....

Tea Time At My Local Cemetery

I was delivering flowers to grave sites one afternoon when I saw a ghostly apparition of three ladies dressed up in Victorian style clothing having tea. They nodded at me as I passed by. It was quite remarkable to see a formal tea party. I didn't want to intrude and I...

Kelly’s Special Gift

I believe my local coffee shop is haunted. It seems that every time my friend Kelly comes to the coffee shop, before she gets to our table a chair is pulled out. It's almost as though one of us kicks the chair out in greeting for her to sit down. The first few times...

Unexplainable Experiences

I'm always hearing about unexplainable paranormal experiences people have had. I hear about them while I'm at my local coffee shop. Also while I'm setting flowers out at the local cemetery. Many people go there to visit with their past loved ones -- and sometimes they...

Sonny’s Personal Haunting

Sonny was haunted by a little girl. It seems my local coffee shop is the place for me to learn about the paranormal experiences of others. I guess I've gotten a reputation in my little corner of the city that I'll listen to the strange and unusual stories of others...

An Old Diary

I was at a used bookstore one afternoon and I found this old diary. I was excited about it, but I was also nervous about buying something as private as a diary, but I bought it and kept it in my car for a few weeks before smudging it and bringing it into the house....

Chased Out Of An Old Cemetery

Many of you may find cemeteries to be creepy . . . but they don't have to be. Some people have some very interesting ideas about ghost hunting and being right in the middle of the action, but would you set up camp next to a cemetery? I have a respect for cemeteries...

A Visit To Aunt Francis

I am definitely intrigued by the ghosts of children. For one thing it breaks my heart that children have died young. Maybe since I've been a teacher, they're attracted to me, or me to them. Whatever the case, I do get my fair share of children ghosts. I met two young...

Goo Was Dripping From The Wall

I was at my local antique mall quite some time ago and as I was looking around I noticed goo dripping from the wall. We did have quite a bit of rain, but it wasn't the normal rain type of drip unless there was something in the attic that made this happen. It gave me...

Do You Believe In Demons?

To be honest with you, I try not to give demons much thought. Yes, I have seen demons and I have felt them.  I've had to remove them from my house and antiques. I thought with the movies and some YouTube videos, people put too much emphasis on demons. They...

The photograph of The Brown Lady of Raynham Hall is familiar to most everyone.  It is included in everyone's collection of ghostly apparitions.  Many believe it is authentic, but there are always those who believe otherwise.  I'm no photography expert, but I am open...
