    Mysterious Disappearing Phantom Houses

    [​IMG]

    Kathleen Luisa, of Falls Church Virginia claims that she had driven past an old manor called the Stone House, situated near Sudley Road, many times and had always wondered about its history. The house was located amongst some of the old battlefields of the American Civil War, and was absolutely steeped in history, as well as being a common landmark in the area.

    One night in 1986, Luisa went out to one of the old battlefields along with her mother and grandparents to where the Stone House should have been looming but it simply wasn’t there. They located an empty lot where the house should have been standing, yet there was nothing to suggest it had ever been there at all in the weed-choked lot.

    There was no rubble, no scars in the earth from machinery or vehicles, no holes in the ground, no foundation walls.

    Two weeks later, the same group drove by the same intersection and was absolutely baffled when she saw that the house was there once again as if it had never been gone. They all swore that they had seen the empty lot, and were equally befuddled as to how the house could be there.

    She insists that she had been living in the area her whole life and had definitely not made any mistakes about the location.

    Another odd story concerning the same Stone House, this time with the testimony of a Beverly Kish, of Merrifield, Virginia, who claims that in January of 1997 she had her own unusual experience concerning the structure, which she felt compelled to share upon hearing of Luisa’s experience.

    Kish would say:

    From the same link...

    Also in the United States is the spectral house of Cuba Road, in Lake Zurich Illinois, that meanders through the affluent towns of Lake Zurich and Barrington, and is already imbued with all manner of tales of the strange with the many reports of inexplicable and eerie spook lights reported from the nearby White Cemetery, as well as numerous specters and ghosts.

    Perhaps strangest of all is what supposedly lies along a side street called Rainbow Road. The area was previously the home of an abandoned mansion estate that was so expansive that it has frequently been claimed to have been an old asylum that has gates that inexplicably change position.

    The estate sits right by the infamous White Cemetery, which dates to at least the 1820s and known for numerous hauntings and bizarreness, including phantom vehicles, dancing orbs of light, and shadowy wraiths, and one particular house in can certainly add to this.

    It is said that there is a modest shack that occasionally will appear in the woods right next to the cemetery, and which is inhabited by an elderly woman who is sometimes reported as holding a lantern.

    It is said that if one is to approach the house it will simply vanish into thin air, along with anyone who happens to be too close to it when it does.

    The house is often reported as being wreathed in spectral flames as well, leading to the theory that it is perhaps a ghost structure that was somehow imprinted onto the area in the wake of a tragedy, probably a fire that most likely took the dwelling’s occupant with it.

    In the late 1800s there was also the tale of a phantom house that seemed to randomly warp about in the region of Suffolk, England. On one summer evening in 1860 one farmer named Robert Palfrey was baling hay when he suddenly was overcome by a biting chill despite the otherwise warm air.

    When he looked up he claims to have seen a majestic and pristine red brick house surrounded by green gardens looming nearby, which he had never seen before in all of his years in the area. The house then vanished into thin air just as suddenly as it had appeared right before his eyes, melting away into nothingness.

    This particular house would be seen on and off again in later years. In 1912, Palfrey’s own great-grandson, James Cobbold, was in the very same area when the air became frigid and he claimed to hear a loud whooshing sound, as if a great amount of air had been abruptly displaced.

    When Cobbold and his companion looked up they noticed an opulent, three-storied, double-fronted, red brick, Georgian-style house surrounded by lush, blooming gardens, even though just moments before there had been nothing their but open expanses of open farmland.

    After a few moments, the house was ensconced with some sort of a fog or mist, before blinking back out of existence.

    Well the article did only give a few examples, in this particular case, twice with two different people and time periods, when I have more time I wanted to research into that house and see if I can find any other examples...

    I'd suggest finding the address as well if you can. The battlefields it is nearest to would help as well.

    Agreed, them mentioning the battlegrounds raised an eyebrow, in the link there's a little more on this I think but I did not post it here...

    Actually I just noticed that she was from Falls Church and all she gave for a location is near sudley road near some civil war battlefields. Her "account" is beginning to look somewhat lame.

    When these things turn into guessing games it turns into a big red flag......:Whistle:.

    I'd say she took a wrong turn that night.

    Would both women almost 10 years apart make the same mistake?...

    I was just talking about the one who doesn't believe in details......but yes tw0 people taking wrong turns 10 years apart is more likely than an old house taking a night off.

    With the lack of details I'm wondering it this even happened now.
