Haunted Grandfather Clocks

Clocks often remind us of just how short life is. People often refer to time as “running out.” Others refer to it in terms of “not enough time,” or “fleeting.”

There are many tales of haunted furniture. Helen, an assistant editor of a Denver, Colorado newspaper, shared the following story. It is compelling.

She writes…

One heirloom, a grandfather clock, was passed down through 5 generations of my family.

This clock was unusual in that it not only noted the time of day but also the time of death of its owners.

My great, great grandfather was the original owner of this clock. At the exact hour and minute of his death his favorite clock stopped ticking.

My great uncle then inherited this clock. His death also was noted by this amazing timepiece’s failure to continue keeping time.

The next owner of the clock was Helen’s grandfather. This man’s life ended at the exact moment this heirloom clock stopped.

Helen’s father was the next family member to own this timepiece. He weary of these coincidences decided to stop the clock and put it in storage. One can’t blame him.

The clock this time did not note his passing. Helen anxious to end the strange connection this clock had to her family decided to sell it.

Author J. Michael Norman shared the story above he also told the following brief story about another inherited clock.

After one family’s uncle died they moved several items that he had left to them into their home.

The largest item was an old grandfather clock. They quickly came to believe this clock was still connected to their deceased relative.

Whenever they stood near it they experienced odd emotions, they also often felt cold spots.

Strangest of all they smelled the strong scent of their uncles’ favorite pipe tobacco when they were near this clock.

They decided to remove all their Uncle’s items from their home. Things calmed down and they no longer felt their uncle’s presence.

The Sorrowful Nanny

Does this photo show the ghost of a guilt-ridden nanny?

Taken at the Langsmeade House in Oxford, England, the picture above seems to show a white figure standing near an upper-level window. Legend has it a nanny’s ghost lurks in the home because a child in her care died after falling from a tree on the property. The Langsmeade House is now a bed and breakfast, and guests and staff reportedly see the nanny’s ghost, as well as a young boy’s spirit. Could it be the same child that fell from the tree?

Trap by

Yuri Hill

I love the fact he thinks it’s his trap. He, the piper, the monster, is luring her into this hut he found… But he doesn’t notice how easily she walks, how the forrest opens for her, how she should be wearing a cloak in the chill… But he does notice the bones, when the hut behind him ignites its lamps and its oven. But by then it’s too late. Because which Baba Yaga from which faerytale really deans’t matter when she’s stalking calmly towards you ignoring your hex-ridden flute and all…
