Tuesday Travelogue-October 11th

By
Real Estate Agent with John L Scott Market Center 700512026

Welcome to the ongoing weekly series called Tuesday Travelogue. We are in our 110th week! 

 

 Each week, some ActiveRain bloggers are spotlighted to take us somewhere we may not have been on some kind of virtual travel (and it doesn't cost a dime!). Here is the purpose:

 

 to enjoy the ride"

"take a trip without even leaving the farm"

"expand your horizons"

"see through someone else's eyes"

  and hopefully much more!

  

It's all about Ghosts this day in October! 

We start out by visiting a Ghost Town in my own state of Oregon. Golden Oregon  is on the national register of historic places. Check it out! It's a terrific story of gold, miners' lives, and what it looks like now.  Thank you, Gary Swanson. 

Ghost Town

The Secret Life of Ghosts! What an intriguing title, and Andrea Sweidler went to an actual Paranormal Lecture about just this topic. It sounds like something I would definitely sign up for...next time I'm in Connecticut. 

St Peters Masonic Temple in New Milford CT

 Do you need to help a ghost "let go" of their earthly ties? Laura Cerrano offers some tips on how to say goodbye that starts with the story of Amityville on Long Island NY.

                                     
     Haunted    Feng Shui Long Island & New York

   Next we go to Glanmore in Ontario for a ghostly tale of lovely history beautifully told by Jo-Anne Smith. She weaves a tale of pianos playing of their own accord and other paranormal activities, sometimes attributed to the ghost of Harriet Phillips--this is so well written!!       Glanmore House, Belleville, Ontario                                                  

   The Hammock House, once told to be built for Blackbeard, but seems to have had a few ghosts hanging around through the ensuing years is shared with us by Amy Hahn and she draws us in with tales of captured women, slaveowners and military men...many layers of hauntings here in North Carolina at The Hammock House! 

Hammock House

Please don't forget to comment on these blog posts and I hope that you enjoyed all of these virtual travels. 

                    

 

Travellers in the Rain!

Oh, Beth Atalay I LOVE this kind of stuff! I used to read books in grade school and junior high written by Hans Holzer who was a ghosthunter. Can't recall the name of the books, but do remember that he spent time in America and focused on some of those homes. Look at his kind face!

Dick Greenberg these are particularly well written this week! Filled with interesting facts and photos. As to the Ontario home, one of her comments is from a Faulkner relative, whose mom lived in that house and she herself saw "Hattie" Phillips in ghost-like form.

Gayle,

What a fun set of posts...I was just remembering that the Yellow House in Summerland where we have our yoga studio is haunted...Never felt the ghost just lots of good vibes!  No doubts they are benevolent as they groove on all that energy.  A

Ahhh, good one, Sharon Lee BOO!! 

Amy Hahn I love a great history lesson about both of those as well, and I was very excited to find your post--so well done! 

Ron and Alexandra Seigel you know, one would think that the three of us could easily have been "open" enough to have spirits come for a visit, but alas, I have not had the pleasure either. I DO think that benevolence comes in the form of apparitions as well as mischief. My sister saw a ghost at the end of her bed in college, it was of a young man, I believe. They were in a dorm hall that was reputed to be haunted by a young man who either committed suicide or fell, after some love mishap. It's been EONS and I can't recall the details now, but she woke up and wondered how he got into an all-girls dorm. 

Here is a photo I took while visiting Clayton NY. A bit of restaurant fun these folks had for those who looked "up" into the second story. I did!!

Gayle when I was at West Point many moons ago, I was in G-4 that mean G-Company 4th Regiment... I was a Plebe i.e.: a freshman and there was a Yearling (sophomore) by the name of O'Connor, year before I went there he saw a Ghost, needless to say he was a legend at the school and most people thought he was off his rocker...Endre

Gayle, I love your spooky theme, perfect timing! I love ghost stories. My parents lived in an old farmhouse before I was born that was haunted. I still ask them to tell the story every year!

Florida Tolbert Team of Keller Williams Realty Port St Lucie, FL I love your "real estate" take on this!

Endre Barath, Jr. I figure there have to be many ghosts at West Point. 

Amanda S. Davidson true ghost stories from family members are the best in my book.

 

Aw, c'mon, Brian England ya gotta be adventurous, we'll be with you!!

Sheila Anderson they are ALL very interesting. If you get the chance, read the comment re: Glanmore, as one of the family members who isn't an AR member wrote a very interesting comment about what her own mom experienced while living there.
