Haunted House on Scott Street: If You Lived There Now, Would You Want to Know?
You’ll notice right away that I have blacked out some of the information in the article above. I do apologize for the omissions. However, I am concerned about the privacy of the residents who live at the current address. If you would like to read the unedited article, you can find it yourself in the Milwaukee Sentinel edition from August 15th, 1892.
I converted the old address in the article to the current one using the city directory address converter available at the Central Library in Milwaukee. Then I brought up the current address on Google Maps. This led to the discovery that there is still a house located there. Question is: Now that I have that knowledge, what should I do with it?
I immediately jumped up to mail a copy of the article to the current residents with a letter inquiring about more recent paranormal activity. Then I stopped to think. The article above recounts the story of a suicide and subsequent haunting of the property. Consider it. If it was you lived there, would you want to know?
I know I would, but that’s me. General concensus states that I’m a little different than most. I don’t want to ruin anyone’s day by being the bearer or bad news. So I need your help. What should I do? The incidents in the article occurred over 100 years ago. Plus the current house does not resemble the one in the illustration, so it is most likely not the same one. That makes the grisly history of the land less freaky, right? To send or not to send? Would you want to know? Please comment below and let me know what you think.
