Jinxx's childhood house of horrors, 702 N 16th Street, Fort Dodge, Iowa 50501

by Jinxx (guitarist for the band Black Veil Brides)
(Los Angeles, California, USA)


My personal childhood home, originally built in 1912 (now abandoned but still standing) began experiencing poltergeist activity, objects moving by themselves, disembodied footsteps, voices, horrific smells, a strange liquid seeping from the floor boards (which we found to be blood), a mist that shaped into a human figure with eyes, periodically would find dead black birds throughout the house December of 1987. The house is exactly as we left it in early 1988 (we fled in the middle of the night when my mom saw the figure with eyes hovering above her). A few families have tried to live there since, but no one ever stayed long. It has sat empty for years as I understand it. Recently went back and checked on it in September 2011, entered it to face my fears (it's been haunting me for 23 years. I still have nightmares). The stain from the puddle of blood in my mom's former room was still visible. We always suspected the haunting had something to do with the witchcraft of our next door neighbors at the time, whom we never got along well with. Their house has also sat empty for many years...

The horror NEW
by: Shawn Payne

It's true,I was raped in that house when I was 13,then again last week. It's haunted by the ghost of Phil Lipp,a legendary musician who exploded after eating at taco johns.
It's kind cool if you don't mind the rape.
Oh Rob Brennan rocks harder than John Holmes dick.

I lived 4 houses away from here.. I used to hang out with one of the girls who had lived there.. every time I would walk into the porch I always got a werid feeling it always felt so dark throughout the whole house.. the kitchen seemed too small & croweded. I can't remember if I ever went in the basement but there's always that eery feeling when going by. I would like to go inside that's for sure.

Grew up accross street NEW
by: Jeremiah

I grew up accross the street until I was 8. My dad kept it as a rental and I lived there again for 5 years in my early 20s. I believe it all. My house had a nice little boy in it that actually appeared and played games but was mean to my roommate. I have been in neighbors house basement, and something happened there years ago. The walls are all grafitied and it sends chills down your back and it is not positive. I believe it, from years of looking across the street, you always wondered, what is going on in that house. Not even squatters stay there!

And they had the house til I think 98-99 and had moved in there 94-95 and I remember that basement was kinda creepy but as far as seeing things I never saw anything n either house we had fun in that house while in it. It did have something that scratched in the wall walk in into the kitchen but we just figured it was a possum and but may be they liked us cause they always partied!

I call bullshit NEW
by: freak032173

If you knew anything about witchcraft you'd know there is no evil in the craft. Therefore your theory on witches making the place haunted are crap. Witches abide by the three-fold rule. Whatever you do comes back to you 3 times more intense than what you sent out, be it good or bad. I hope your music is better than your logic, but I doubt that since I've never heard of your band.

no doubt NEW
by: kcunningham

First, I would like to say I had no clue that someone from BVB lived in ft dodge. ( I was born and raised in ft dodge) That's awesome! Rock on! Second, that house is on the same same street where the Starks family lived (just a houses down) and the mother killed two of her VERY young children while her oldest two were at the playground across the street at the school. Just driving on that road gives me the creeps. The house is very freaky. I used to live a few blocks away from it and just walking by I would get goosebumps. I have no doubt that Jinxx is telling the truth.

Rob, you're an idiot NEW
by: Anonymous

The reason you don't know Jinxx is because he and his family moved to Des Moines after this. I went to high school with him there and he's telling the truth as he experienced it. I remember hearing about this house several times back then. Seriously, why the hell would someone pick Dirty Dodge, out of all of the crappy towns in Iowa, to randomly make up a haunted house story? Use a little critical thinking before you run your mouth. I also very much doubt he was actually born in 86, since I graduated in 97 and he was only a year or two behind me, but it's on Wikipedia, so it must be right? They're so well known for their credibility. Ha! Even so, my own child vividly remembers a very similar situation of a dark figure standing over him in his bedroom when he was only 2 years old as well. I also remember visiting my mom in the hospital when my brother was born when I was 2. It's absolutely possible for a 2 year old to remember traumatic or exciting memories, but that's beside the point.

The house was just sold again. I live near (a block away from) it. I have seen things in the window me and my friends used to sit on the porch or walk passed. We got touched sometimes and there were dark things there. The whole neighborhood has an eerie feel to it. The house is definitely haunted. I am just interested in seeing how long the new people stay.

Your wikipedia page and your page in the Black Veil Brides wiki say you were born in 1986. You say your family left the house in 1988. You must be quite a prodigy to have such vivid memories of your time in that house when you were 2 when you left.

Yeah, I also lived in that house. The only horrific smells I remember were when the kitchen sink backed up. My family didn't experience any of the rest of what you describe so vividly (again, remarkable memory for such a young kid when you lived there).

Looked at it on Google Maps NEW
by: Jolie Harrison

So...I just looked at this house on Google Maps. I found it straight away, went on street view, and looked at it a little. As soon as I looked at it, I felt freaking chills going up my spine (I was probably exaggerating with myself on that) but I did, though. I dragged the arrow around the block and looked at it. I looked at the windows...one looked broken, but I wasn't sure. I'm sitting here shaking just thinking about it. I don't ever want to touch it. I live in Illinois, but I don't go to Iowa often. I looked at it some more, scanning the windows with my eyes (of course) and thought I saw something in the window, or thinking that I wanted to believe that. I closed the tab on my computer and layed down, shaking a little.

As far as the haunted house is concerned...I have no idea. If any of the things mentioned were to have happened to me I would have have abandoned that place as quickly as I could. Who is to say unless you experienced it yourself. I am happy I have not.

Old neighbor NEW
by: Tasha

I lived across the street from this house for over 7 yrs in that time I had experienced many odd things by which I did call the police to come check on. Example: I got a whif of something horrible drifting from that house I had to close the windows it was way too fowl. So I had the police come over they too couldn't figure it out. Also it was rented out a few times but the renters never stayed very long ever. From time to time we would experience unexplainable things like knocking on the side door (which still occurs) or things moved or lamps coming on all by themselves. Maybe its all part of the same scary thing. It's a shame since its across the street from the school and its a big house with a nice yard. From what I have seen and felt I strongly agree that there is something unnatural going on. That's too bad.

Not So Sure! Sorry! NEW
by: Anonymous

First I would like to say that I do believe in ghosts and such.I live right next door... I am very aware of strange things happening around me, I have had my fair share of unexplainable events. . First of all there were families living in both houses, the one on the corner and the other one that looks exactly like it next door, until about seven years ago. The people that own the properties I also know and they are very old and stopped renting them out. Once everyone figured this out kids and adults alike have been in and vandalized and destroyed these homes to the point of looking like haunted houses. Animals have been in them and left lovely messes as well. Also this house mentioned has a large porch that had a litter of kittens under it. Animals are pretty good sensors of odd phenomena, but seemed to be ok with the house, strange. Now I am not saying that I don't get odd feelings when I look at these houses sometimes or that the people that lived at these houses didn't experience something. I am saying that there is a lot more to it than that. They need to be torn down because of the hazard to the community, a fire can happen anytime with all the kids and people going in and out. This is not good since some of these houses are so close together more than one will start on fire and someone will get hurt. So one thing I would love is for people to realize that for one it is illegal to enter these homes and for another it can be dangerous for all. I keep telling the neighborhood kids that they need to stay away because of all the broken glass, someone is gonna get hurt and then they will be more than just "haunted." If teenagers can have a rendezvous in this house without anything strange or ghostly happening, and yes this really happened it is in a police log, then I think these houses are just old and creepy and imaginations can run wild. But again, for I am sure people will tell me I am full of crap or whatever, I am not saying the people that lived there didn't have ghostly experiences, I just don't think that this house or the other one are worth anybody's time. Remember they haven't been rented out because the owners are very old and have several properties and once they were starting to get vandalized they couldn't. Otherwise families would still be living in these houses! Done with my rant!!

I think what u posted was down right crappy. Where you there? Did you live in the house? You know 100% its all not true? Just because one person experienced these things doesn't make it not true. I believe something must have happened to their family that changed their minds about staying there.
I grew up in a house that haf many unexplained things going on and it freaked our family so we sold our house amd my parents moved them and 7 kids. We found that our house had veen moved from a place that was conected to a church where they held all the funerals. The next ppl moved in and have stayed there since amd its been 20 years. They hear things but nothing like w e did.
So next time you want to talk nasty crap about someone and what they have been through maybe think 2x.

You believe in ghosts harder than a 14 year old girl believes in true love, and ghosts.

Real is real. NEW
by: Jinxx

What happened to me and my family here December of 1987 to February of 1988 is as real as I, or my mother and brother can remember it. I have been spending my life since trying to make sense of it.

I don't believe in ghosts, or god, or anything "supernatural."

I just know that what I experienced in that house was not a figment of my imagination.

Dear Rob Brennan,

I'm sorry I grew up in your shitty town in the 80's and grew up to become a successful musician you never heard of. I never heard of you either. So fuck you.

Alex,

When did your family live there? The Asian landlords coincide with the fact that Asians bought the property from Egemo Realty after my family my family desperately sold it to them in 1988. Also, we found dead black birds between the storm windows of my bedroom, I will never forget. Also, sorry about the sepia tone from the original 1986 polaroid my mother took, which I still have in my possession, idiot.


And Traci:

My mom nailed that door in the basement shut. I remember there was this creepy toilet in that room that was always full of black shit that my grandpa took a hammer and broke it down and we were always creeped out by that area of the house. It apparently was an old coal room.

My mom grew up in this house, and I visited once during an open house when it was for sale. It isn't haunted. Aside from the attractions people attend around Halloween time, there are no such thing as haunted houses.

This address does, in fact, exist. There is this wonderful new invention called Google that will allow you to search the address and see the house for yourself.

Please do more research before you start saying something is false.

Lived there a long time NEW
by: Anonymous

I lived there from 1958 until 1979. There was definitely a creepy vibe. I experienced moments of extreme fright for no apparent reason sometimes, and smelled a weird odor that scared me.

Nope NEW
by: Alex

I've lived in that house. The only creepy thing about it was waking up to an old Asian man climbing in your window when the landlord decided to take the storm windows off.

Also, nice sepia tone filter, idiot.

Bull! NEW
by: Anonymous

According to the land records site this address doesn't even exist.

This is how rumors get started... like Bands wanting to promote their names - think about it, a band from California has posted this and yet the address doesn't seem to be in our records.

WOW!

Do a little research before you believe the hype someone builds.

702 N 16th St NEW
by: Jessica

I lived in this house from 2002 to 2008ish and absolutely nothing weird happened. Also, the white house next door was occupied. The landlord does not take care of the property that's why there was no one living there.

relate NEW
by: Kylie Maseda

That sounds really scary. I have had experiences with the paranormal in my childhood home before, but nothing to that extent. It was mostly disembodied voices, the occasional object moving, and scratching noises in the back of my closet.Because of the scratching noises I rarely slept in my room because I would hear it in the middle of the night.

I know how you feel NEW
by: Trinity

I know how you feel Jinxx. I live in a hunted house that half if not more than the same features your house did. This summer I plan to go out there and see your old house. I live not even a day away. It really closes to where my aunt used to live. So yeah. I really would like to meet you. You are a big inspiration to me. And I would love to ask some more questions about your house. Thanks.

Me and my family lived here NEW
by: Traci

We lived here for a year from 1999 to 2000 and while the basement was extreamily creepy because it had a door that was nailed shut we never had any of these experiences your family had. Also when we first moved in we repainted a lot of the rooms. So some of the thing did get changed.
