Haunted Houses in the Hudson Valley

Around this time of year I always wonder if my house might be haunted. Perhaps it’s the upcoming Halloween celebration that has some of my more imaginative neighbors decorating their yards with all sorts of spooky surprises, just waiting to jump out at me, but more than likely it’s the change in seasons. As it gets colder, I hear all sorts of new noises in the house. As the wood contracts, in the suddenly cold temperatures, it creaks and it groans at odd hours. The winds pick up and there are new whistling sounds…..or could it be voices? Sometimes I wonder. And there are always footsteps running across the attic floor, late every night. I believe it’s a squirrel. I hope. There has been at least one well documented haunted house in the Lower Hudson Valley http://athomeinnyack.wordpress.com/2010/10/29/nyacks-legally-haunted-house/ There is no reason why there can’t be another. It does however raise all sorts of concerns as to whether you should publicly mention that you think your house is haunted. It’s probably not a beneficial feature. If you have any questions whatsoever, especially with October 31 just around the corner, the enclosed article from stylelist.com might be just the answer: http://www.stylelist.com/2011/10/27/theresa-caputo-long-island-medium_n_1035743.html
