Hauntings at the Historical McBride House

The relatively small town of Fort Gibson, Oklahoma is nestled between the county lines of Muskogee and Cherokee counties. It is a peaceful place, with small town families and respectable upbringings. But this quiet landmark of true Americana is shadowed by the eerie haunting of the Historical McBride House.

Built in 1895, the Historical McBride House was once the grand home of Dr. McBride, a local physician. McBride had the home-built in a very particular manner, inspecting and scrutinizing each and every board and nail that went into it.

Dr. McBride loved his home. It meant everything to him. He threw lavish parties that went on into the wee hours of the night, serving the finest foods and ensuring every guest was gratuitously accommodated.

It would seem the doctor enjoyed his in-home forays so much that, even in death, he chose not to give them up.

In 1982, the McBride House was purchased by current owners Chris and Cindy Black. When they first moved in, they started to notice a few strange things around the home. One night, they assumed they must have left the television set turned on. It sounded as if there was a party going on downstairs – voices, laughter, the distinct ‘clink’ of Champaign glasses, that sort of thing. Heading downstairs to turn off the television, it went to dead silence. The TV was off, lights off, there was no one in sight.

It became quickly apparent that the Black family was not alone in the home. After 25 years living in the haunted Historical McBride House, Cindy claims to know each of its ghosts very well. She even documented her phenomenal story in the recently published book ‘Ghosts of the McBride House’.

The McBride House ghost first is that of Dr. McBride himself. Cindy Black believes that the good doctor simply has no desire to leave his beloved home and lavish lifestyle. McBride is, for obvious reasons, assumed to be responsible for the incessant late-night parties that can be heard downstairs as late as 2 o’clock in the morning.

There is a Victorian Lady who appears now and again donning all white clothing. This particular apparition does not just haunt the Historical McBride House, but also the old army hospital across the street.

Two children, a small boy and girl, are also known to materialize in the McBride House. Perhaps these are the ghosts that enjoy scaring guests of the home by sitting on their beds at night and sometimes shaking them. Guests have also reported the whispers of disembodied voices speaking directly into their ears as they try to sleep.

Cindy insists that the ghosts haunting the Historical McBride House are not mean or vengeful in any way. In fact, she almost paints a picture of a playful atmosphere, stating that they like to have fun with the living in mischievous, sometimes even comical ways.

Apparently the ghosts like to take things from the Black family as well as guests of the home. We’re not talking about moving a loaf of bread that has been sitting on the counter for a few hours, but things people are actually using at the time. You turn your back for one instant and when you turn around again, whatever you were just working with could be gone. These things tend to turn up in strange places later on, but certainly nowhere a person of sound mind would have placed them.

Mrs. Black was terribly frightened of the McBride House ghosts when her and her husband first purchased the property, but now they seem to be little more than co-ed residents that the family has simply gotten used to over the years.

The terrifying mystery of Le Loyon

For 10 years Police in Switzerland have been hunting a ‘terrifying’ figure who has stalked Swiss woodland wearing gas mask, boiler suit and strange cloak.

The mysterious person has been photographed for the first time after apparently being spotted wandering around the patch of woodland he has roamed for the past 10 years.

The figure, who is known as ‘Le Loyon’ and has been called Switzerland’s answer to the Loch Ness Monster.

He wears a military uniform and a thick cloak, with a gas mask covering his or her face. While he does not seem to be obviously aggressive or dangerous, police are hoping to speak to Le Loyon in an effort to encourage him to be less threatening.

Tales of Le Loyon have been reported in the woods of Maules in western Switzerland for the past decade, apparently walking the same route every day.

Three years ago, his clothes were found abandoned in the woods with a note saying he was leaving the area because “The risk of a hunt for the Beast” was too great.

The clothes gave no evidence of the persons identity.

There have been a number of theories as to the figure’s true identity – a mentally ill woman, a gigantic man, or someone suffering from a nasty skin condition.

Others suggest that Le Loyon has deliberately chosen a hermit’s life, perhaps because he is a ‘survivalist’ obsessed with the apocalypse.

The Calling Voice

Jennifer Groesbeck was driving home with her 18-month-old daughter, Lily one winter day in 2015 when Groesbeck hit a barrier and flipped the car into a river. The car lay there for 14 hours until a fisherman spotted the wreck and alerted police. Tyler Beddoes and three other officers arrived on the scene, and the first thing they saw was an arm hanging out of the window. The four officers went into the water, attempting to save whoever was inside. While trying to pry open the door, all four of the policemen heard a woman’s voice call out to them. They struggled to free Groesbeck, but when they did they found that she had been dead for some time. It wasn’t until the car was removed from the water that they found Lily. She was alive, and after a trip to the hospital, she survived the ordeal. The officers can only speculate as to where the voice came from, but the overwhelming theory was that it was the deceased mother saving her daughter’s life.

The Spooner House

In August of 2005, a group of workmen were hired to do repairs at the Spooner House in Plymouth, Massachusetts and upon arriving, knocked at the door. A little girl in colonial period costume opened it, which surprised no one as the more than 262 year-old house has been a museum for over 50 years. They got busy with their task, and soon along comes the curator, who curious, asks how they got in. The foreman shrugs and says the little girl let them in.

“What little girl,” the curator asked. The workmen led the curator to the room which the little girl had entered, only to find it, as well as the rest of the house, empty. The workmen, not used to encountering ghosts in broad daylight, packed it in and left.

By all accounts, the ghost of Abigail Townsend is a friendly little spirit, and shouldn’t frighten anyone. Abigail was a tiny thing when the Spooner family took her into the family home in the mid 18th century. The house itself, is one of the oldest houses on one of the oldest streets in America. Built about 1749 on North Street, just one street over from Leyden Street, where according to tradition the pilgrims built their settlement, five generations of Spooners called the two story house their home. Originally constructed for the widow Hannah Jackson, the first Spooner to take up residence was a successful business man and patriot of the American revolution, Deacon Ephraim Spooner. It stayed in the family until the death of James Spooner in 1954. It was James who willed the house and all its furnishings to be turned into a museum. Today it contains over 200 years of original furnishing, giving one a sense of how life has changed, or perhaps how little life has changed in Plymouth over the past two centuries.

And perhaps it’s haunted by James as well. Music has been heard coming from the house when it was quite empty, and James was well-known as a patron of the musical arts. But alas, it’s the creepy little kid ghosts that get all the publicity, and so the music is attributed to Abigail. Though when you think of it, that makes no sense at all, as it’s unlikely an eight year-old girl could have been very musical, and there were no stereos in the 18th century.

Abigail fell victim to a tooth infection, dying in an upstairs room of the Spooner House. There was no penicillin in those days, the infection spread and there was nothing to do about it, but try to comfort the little girl in what must have been an agonizing death.

Since then she’s been seen periodically, peering from the windows, rustling the bushes along the alley, even occasionally standing at the corner of the house. But more recently she’s seem to have become more active. Or perhaps the stories just get more publicity.

According to a local historian, a woman who used to live next door to the Spooner House awoke in the middle of the night to find Abigail standing at the foot of her bed.
