The Sallie House – level 3

06-12-2022 15:00

It looks like an ordinary small house; however, once you step inside, it’s spine-chilling. The Sallie House in Atchinson, Kansas, US, is said to be haunted.

The ominous happenings are said to have started in the 1870s when a doctor lived and worked in the house. Allegedly, one day a mother showed up at his door with her six-year-old daughter Sally, and the doctor said she had appendicitis. The girl died during the surgery, and now some people believe that Sally’s spirit torments those who visit or dare live in the house.

In 1993, the Sallie House haunting grew more evil when a young couple moved in with their baby. They would find their pictures on the wall upside down, balls and other toys would move on their own, and at night, mysterious footsteps would been heard.

Investigator Elijah Bukos studied the house several times, using a special gadget to record, as he claims, voices from the dead Sally. However, what’s really going on in the house still remains a mystery.

Difficult words: spine-chilling (very scary), ominous (a feeling that something bad is going to happen), torment (to make someone feel miserable, scared, or annoyed).
