Owners of a house are struggling to give it away after stories of it being haunted have put people off.

The four-bedroom home in Louisiana, US, was built in the 1930s and has been compared to the Amityville Horror house.

A lady who has lived there claims her great grandmother, haunts the place and is ‘”well known” to stir something that’s cooking on the hob.

In a bid to get someone to move the house to another location and then restore it Sylvia McLain, a co-owner of McLain Investments, shared images of it on Facebook.

But that didn’t go to plan after people left comments about the creepy goings-on and their own experiences.

Sylvia, who wants to use the land to build on, says that she too had “all the stories” about it being haunted by an old woman and said former owners had even had ghost hunters in to get her to leave.


Dawn Vallot DeClout, who once lived at the house, claims her great grandmother Adele, haunts the place

The house was built around 1860 on a 160-acre plot of land which was owned by Dawn’s predecessors.

Adele died in the front room of the house in 1967 and the family moved out in the 80s.

Dawn said: “We believe [Adele] is the ghost, but she’s not menacing at all. She was probably like 4ft 9in and weighed about 100lb.

“She lived to be almost 90 and she was always digging in the pots, like when you have something on the stove and someone goes and looks in the pot and stirs it around.

“She was well-known for that, and so when we lived there, we used to hear her all the time jangling the pots when we had something on the stove.

Great-granddaughter Dawn says she’s experienced the spooky goings-on

“You could hear somebody picking up the lid but there was nobody in the kitchen.”

Sylvia added that there were ‘some really cute stories about it being haunted’.

Among the hundreds of responses on Sylvia’s Facebook post were: “Yes it is [haunted]. I experienced three things there that could not be explained and my friend that lived there had more than that.

“We actually experienced one together and we still talk about it.”

Another added: “Most likely the haunting will stay attached to the land and whoever lives in the new home they build will deal with it.”

A third said they visited the home and reported ‘a lot of weird noises in the ceilings and walls’.

Sylvia remains hopeful that someone will want the house, she said: “It’s probably going to need to be taken apart in order to move it unless it’s going really close.

“It’s bittersweet. We know somebody will have a nice place with some historical value and a little bit of a story, but it’s a chapter of our family that will be moving on.

“We probably won’t tear the house down. We’ll probably either restore it or find a place for it unless we have to.”
