Estelle House Gaylord,mi

by Mark Goff
(Grayling,MI)

The story behind the house is that a drifter came through looking for work on the family's farm in the last 1800's and ended up murdering the whole family, mom and dad 3 sons and 2 daughters, hanging the youngest daughter in the shed out front. All this is in newspaper articles from the period. I have personally spent many nights in the house and have witnessed many eerie things. Seeing shadows passing in front of me, orbs in photos, cold spots, and cold grasps on the back of my neck and shoulders while in the basement. You can hear whispers and footsteps, and once in a while what sounds like a little girl screaming. I have also seen the apparition of a small body hanging/floating in the shed out front. A good friend of mine claims to have been attacked in the basement of the home, I did not witness that but did see many scratch wounds and red hand prints on her back. She to this day refuses to set foot back on the property. The basement of the house is by far the most eerie part of the home.

Crazy shit NEW
by: Cory Aguilar

I was there once with Colynda and I didnt see anything or hear anything but I did record with my phone and had some weird ass recordings, like sounds that I didnt hear while I was there but was on my phone, I wish I would have seen something but didn't, It might be haunted though

Try contacting the the Gaylord Courthouse. They should be able to direct you to the right people. I was going to call them myself for the same reason.

Scary NEW
by: Colynda egan

My experience here was not fun . . . I was walking to the shed with 2 of my friends when I heard a scream come from the house . . Sounded like a lil girl . . I dropped my flashlight and ran back to the car . . My 2 friends followed . . Then we were going to go in the house and I had rocks thrown at me . . . Our car wigged out and them died . . . When we went in the house there were mangled dogs and my friend got the back of his neck grabbed and ended up having scratch marks on the back of his neck . . . We have a lot of evp's from the house and they don't want pple there . . They made it very clear ! ! This is just the short story . . .

I love this place!
by: Anonymous

I went to the house a few years ago and had encountered one of the spirits there! I would love to go back but have since forgotten the way. Someone had written on the walls in the living room and there are still beds in the upstairs rooms. One of my favorite houses!
