The Monroe House located in hartford city,Indiana

(Hartford city)

I just seen something at the monroe house.I can't tell you how amazing it is.I kinda believed in ghost and heard stories of this house,but I'am having a hard time just coming off the fear.Long story short,I live in town but just moved within a couple of blocks of the Monroe house.Like I said earlier I have heard stories about the house.I guess a childs ghost is said to be haunting the place,But I never new the location of the building until my new neighbor told me. I drive right past it after work.Just happened to look up at the windows and there it stood.I thought it was black smoke,like the place was on fire.It slide out of the window.It's day light.I could see through it. I still can't believe it.The house is empty.I stopped and just sat there for a few minutes.I don't know what I was seeing.

I am not claiming that this location is not haunted but I the skeptic in me is telling me to point out a couple of things to people. The baby monitor can be most likely is picking up interference from any radios within a 2-5 mile area. CB's, police, other baby monitors, alarm systems, anything in the 2.5 2.4ghz range could be feeding the reviver. Also wanted to point out that the disused water well inside the house. With the serious drought all over USA the very low levels of the aquifers all over. Are creating dangerous issues where the wells are acting as vents for the aquifers. Pulling in all sorts of gasses that are normally trapped or blocked by the higher water level in the aquifers. Gasses like Radon, Natural gas, Carbon Monoxide, Carbon De-oxide, Methane, Hydrogen, Nitrogen, all sorts of petrochemicals can use the disused water well as a chimney and vent directly into the house. This is why their are now laws on the books to prevent at last in KS new water wells from being drilled built inside homes, business. Due to the chances of poisoning people from the gasses chimney effect from water well. I would love to see a environmental survey of the air quality to see if any Radon or other things are present that can cause hallucinations other effects on the brain. Again not claiming that the house in not having paranormal issues but not ruling the chimney effect out either with invisible gasses like Radon others. To rule it out get a EPA environmental study then lets see what is going on. The County Courthouse should have a record of any home burials they would have to be marked on the properties. Normally they appear on the title insurance forms are notated with write of ways. Show as set asides for private cemeteries have to be drawn in to show the exact location and on file with records. A Check with the County would be a good place to start along with looking at your title paperwork. Before paying for ground penetrating radar but then it might be worth getting in touch with a company that does that work too. Just to know if or where any bodies are at. It could be a simple issue of stolen of never used headstones that never made it to or back to the grave site. We had one at my town that people thought had bodies all over the back yard, turned out that the owner back in the 1800's-1920's was a funerary salesman. His wife had built a border for her flower beds with his old tombstone samples. No way there were over 100 bodies buried in an unknown cemetery up in his back yard in what was the rich side of town back in the day.
A little bit of local knowledge and common sense goes a long way in investigations. Along with being able to keep an open mind.
All the kids toys if it is haunted all you are doing is making more cursed/haunted objects to go out into the world. That is anything bad is in the house being held in it can use to hitch a ride out in/on if when they leave the house. I doubt that its being haunted by a Mother and her children more like a single Demon acting like several of them. Trying to get you to feel sorry for it so that it can find a way out, someone to attach too. Fires are often oppressed spirits being held by Demonic spirits trying to burn there way out. To destroy the structure so they have nothing that is keeping them held to that spot. Think of it as a "Jail Break" to escape what or whoever is keeping the held hostage. Small fires are to ruin the owner financially to force them to spend more and more money over and over to keep repairing the property. Until they are driven to bankruptcy financial ruin and end up taking their lives the lives of those close to them. All I want to talk about at this time, have more to say but not in the mood to talk about what happened last night when I started watching the fist video. Had a very unpleasant visitor that was not a human spirit or ever had been one. CP2013

June 21st 2014 with Paranormal Investigators NEW
by: Judy Young Frewer

This was only my second time ever going on an investigation with Brenda Mudrack. 1st time was to the Ohio State Reformatory. Never met PBSubnormal couple Beth and Paul Bryant before or seen any of there videos, knew nothing about history of this house.

So we meet Eddy and Pam Norris they tell us about their experience, others paranormal investigation noting that we may be the last to investigate due to previous investigation having gone in to contact with something Evil. Great I'm thinking just great - NOT -

Beth and Paul arrive we set up some cameras in basement... I'm upstairs watching the monitor while Paul is in basement in coal shoot... I see hundreds of Orbs pouring out of this room all around Paul darting back and forth and looks like giant bubbles. Of course by time we get recorder set up to record it dies down.

Paul asks for name Beth hears Roger, Rodney, something with an R... later clearly Roger, Roger, Roger, Roger. I don't think of it being a possibility of being my brother, I'm actually still thinking about the name on the tombstone outside...Levi Thomas Anelle.

We order pizza and I announce to spirits while I'm in the kitchen "Pizzas' Here come and get it" "Roger want some pizza?" Still not thinking about my brother...

Not until all four of us are in basement, I'm fussing with my flashlight to come on... again Paul asks for name and signal if name is Roger once yes, twice no. I notice my light flashes once... I then say my brother name is Roger and he passed a few years ago... spirit box says STOP my light responds to few more questions and I set it down and ask Roger Young is this you? very bright single light flash with sound of button being pushed on the flashlight... I'm dumbfounded I gasp and I say my brother Roger?

It starts to occur to me that the way Beth is saying Ro ger is how he would say his name. And he would have to clear his throat before speaking. Roger died a month before his 60th birthday from complications from Shy Draggers and Parkinson caused from agent orange exposure in Vietnam.

While upstairs we ask Roger several questions and get answers through the spirit box, This goes on for 30 minutes or so... I ask about Ethan and his name is repeated back, Ethan died at birth, my niece found out early in pregnancy that Ethans skull wasn't developing, she opted to continue with pregnancy, Ethan was born perfectly in every way other than skull and brain, he gasped once and passed. we ask is Ethan with you? sounds like Mark, but I believe it was Park... My niece and family live by a park on west park drive with six month old brother to Ethan. I believe Ethan was allowed to come to Earth again...with Sawyer.

The rest of the night is continued evidence that Roger is here with us and is enjoying our company, nothing bad happens, the little girl upstairs doesn't want us there so we leave upstairs go back downstairs.

While in the kitchen at 2am I hear static from radio in the hoop room & hoop is turning...Brenda gets touched.

Later on while watching Paul in basement alone we see a figure of a woman hovering in corner looking down at Paul, we also witness a dark figure growing within the room with Paul.

Definitely a memorable evening! Would like to return again to The Monroe House.

construction inside the house NEW
by: Anonymous

I was in the house with the owner to bid on some work when we both heard someone walking around followed by a door opening . I was there just for a job and could give a shit about ghosts , now that has changed . Till you see or hear something like that you will not understand !!! The owner said I was lucky because crap like that don't happen every day , I don't know about luck , I really didn't like it and made me start thinking about stuff I never cared about !! Like going to church or something! Peace!

monroe house NEW
by: steve

I have a close friend who has been in that house as a child . He told me if you spend enough time in that house you will experience very strange things. I really never believed him till now , he was describing the same thing I am reading on this site and seeing on you tube years ago. I am going to get with him and book a private investigation this winter. Final note, seen a film crew there this week, pretty cool!

Fire-Death and Disappearnce NEW
by: Anonymous

My grandpa told me about this house whne I was a little kid. He said there was a strange couple lived in this house and the dad was a pharmacist in town and the wife stayed home. They had 2 kids. A boy and a girl. The father could be heard screaming and yelling at his wife and kids, and was always coming home drunk. The little boy was quiet and thought to have some mild mental problems. Story has it that the wife and 2 kids died in a very strange fire that couldn't be explained. They never found the father and he was never seen or heard from again. I don't know if this story is true, my papaw just told me about it when I was little. I guess the house went to his brother and he fixed it up and sold it, that was years ago. I heard it's empty now and the new owners are having problems with strange things happening inside.

Real Deal NEW
by: Tayna

I have been into paranormal stuff for 12 years now, after seeing and hearing some of this evidence on a social media sight I think someone needs to investigate this house. The evidence is better then what you see on any of the ghost hunting shows on TV. It's a real hautning.

Our Investigation NEW
by: EVP Paranormal Team of Indiana

We are a paranormal team that did investigate this house back in November of 2012 after being contacted by the owners. Our team consists of 3 team investigators and a psychic. We arrived at the house around 9:00pm and our psychic saw a woman on the porch with long black hair, very thin and frail. The owners gave us a tour of the house and filled us in on some of the history including where most of the strange activity has been seen and heard. Once upstairs, where the smokey figure has been seen, we were unloading our equipment when something in the back bedroom clinked across the floor. We collected EVP's upstairs telling us to GET OUT, DIE and PRAY FOR US. The house is mostly empty as they have been renovating it in the hopes of trying to rent it out, however I believe they have stopped construction because the contractors get spooked and refuse to come back. Once we unloaded our equipment we went room to room taking pictures, running our EMF and did some EVP recordings. The core structure of this house is reportedly from the 1900's and it is here that we found the most activity. I personally have never witnessed so much paranormal activity in one house right off the bat. While there we witnessed lights turning on and off (not just the bulbs, the switches up and down), doors opening and slamming shut, the window in the far back bedroom slammed shut breaking the glass, footsteps, the house making loud banging noises...this house is alive with activity!

Investigating the basement, where the story of the childs death due to the fire occurred, the charred beams where the fire started were still visible. While taking pictures of this, the lights started to flicker and then went off leaving us in pitch blackness. Then suddenly my assistant screamed and ran up the stairs and out of the basement. Once outside she said it felt as though someone had touched her back, she had 3 deep scratches just below her neck. After this, she left and refused to go back inside. The psychic picked up on something in the coal room in the basement and felt 3 different presences here. A woman, and two small children. We got EVP’s of GET OUT, MOMMY, and IM SORRY down in the basement. We also got a recording of an EVP calling my name which made the hair on the back of my neck stand up!
We collected some very odd pictures of what appears to be smoke and a blazing apparition that we couldn't debunk upstairs where the sighting has been witnessed. We have another session scheduled with a bigger paranormal team this spring.
We will keep you updated.

I LIVE IN HARTFORD CITY AND HAVE SINCE I WAS A KID. THIS HOUSE IS WELL KNOWN TO THE LOCAL RESIDENTS AND THE STORY OF THE CHILD WHO DIED IN THE STRANGE FIRE BEING SEEN IN THE UPSTAIRS WINDOW. LIGHTS ON AND OFF ALL HOURS OF THE DAY AND NIGHT. I DON'T BELIEVE IN THE PARANORMAL BUT I HAVE SEEN THINGS IN THIS HOUSE THAT CANNOT BE EXPLAINED. I'D REALLY LIKE TO GET INSIDE AND DO A GHOST HUNT JUST TO SEE WHAT IS REALLY GOING ON INSIDE THIS HOUSE.

monroe house update NEW
by: Anonymous

The monroe house has been really active lately.A lot of people have reported to the owners of the property that the lights are coming on and turning off.Also there has been several sightings of what appears to be someone moving past the windows.The property owners do not believe in the paranormal and have told me they will try to debuk all the claims.The house is slowly being restored.The yard is being cleared of trees and under growth which has made it alot easier to view from the road.I think this has increased the visability from the road which has increased the sightings.I have seen the lights in the second story come on late at night.Let me explain that there isn't any light timers in the house.The owners informed me that the wiring is new and they think there might be an electrical problem.I don't know but it is creepy.
