The Portal Room

For my trip the the family house, I stayed in what we call The Portal Room.

Ornate fireplace, framed by stained glass

It’s called that because all the ghosts use the fire place as a portal to the house.  Several family members have seen the ghosts of children here.  The ghosts are friendly–they are past family members coming to visit.

I didn’t see any ghosts, or even experience the sensation of a presence or being watched.  But there are three rooms in the house, all in the same area, where there is a lot of activity.  The ghosts come in and move things around.

A few more pictures of the room…

And a sign that’s in the room that you won’t see anywhere:

Sign: This room is equipped with Edison Electric Light. Do not attempt to light with a match. Simply turn key on wall by the door. The use of electricity for lighting is in no way harmful to health, nor does it affect the soundness of sleep.
