1015 12 st west Bradenton Florida
by Wm Hallbrook
When I was 14 years old, my father purchased an old two story home in the downtown district of Bradenton. This area is now an artist community. My father lived there in the same home until he passed in 2005. It's probably the oldest home in the area. I believe it was built in the twenties and is one of the only second story homes there.
When we moved in, we noticed some strange things right away...such as bones being found in the closts and crawl spaces (animal). Many family members came and went over the years, all recalling strange sounds, experiences, etc.
One evening as we were sitting watching television, a loud booming sound came from upstairs and shook the house. It sounded as if a 50 lb bag of flour was slammed onto the bedroom floor right above our heads! Upon inspection, nothing amiss was found.
Lights would turn on and sounds, voices, etc. would be heard. My nephew lived there for awhile and was scared out of his wits!
The house still stands today . I doubt that the neighbors even know its haunted .
