Admiral Hawly's House
House is located at Whitefield, New
Hampshire, and it stands in an isolated patch of the forest, at the end
of a narrow, winding, tree-lined driveway. Visitors are not welcome as
the house is privately owned, and privacy is much valued, especially
in New England.
DESCRIPTION AND HISTORY:
The house was built by Admiral Hawley
and his wife. This white house has three stories, and a wooden porch that
goes around it on it's three sides.
Admiral Hawley, and his wife, were
a fussy, difficult couple. He would chase off anyone who happened to be
on his property grounds. The admiral died in 1933. In 1935, the house,
called "Miz 'n Top," by the admiral, was sold by his daughter
to the J Family.
When Mr. and Mrs. J decided to turn
the attic into a club room for their son, E. J. & his friends, the
occurrences began. The parents cut windows into the wall and threw out
all the possessions of the admiral they had found in the attic, which
was all very upsetting to the unseen occupant.
1) Right after these above mentioned
actions, footsteps and other sounds began to be heard in the attic &
along the corridors & stairs leading toward it.
2) When the son, E. J., for the first
time, slept in the attic room, he heard almost nightly heavy foot steps
and heavy objects being moved across the floor overhead, and down the
3) Many years later, E. J. was living
in the house with his own family. When going up the stairs to the club
room, to get a book, E. J. walked into a thing, like a warm, wet blanket
that touched him physically.
4) A house guest saw the door knob
of the door, leading to the club room, turn by itself, before he touched
Psychic Research: A medium brought
into the house at once sensed the vibrations of the admiral and came into
contact with him. He indeed resented the new owners throwing out his things,
and had wanted the house to go to his son. The Admiral was asked not
to upset the family now living in the house, & he answered that he
was a tidy person and would take care of himself. He seemed to be secretly
pleased that Holzer and company had come all the way from New York to
talk to him.
