Located right along side the Main St. in the town of Oley, PA is the Squire House that was built in the early 1700s. The Home is still here to this day but has had a few additions added on to it since the early day’s. The front of the house was added on in 1856, but the original house is still in the back part.
While photographing this old home, I noticed that the Owner was out front, so decided to walk over and ask some questions about it. She was very friendly and told me a number of things that most people don’t know. One of them is that the home is Haunted!! She saw with her own eye’s a figure walk past the kitchen window from out of nowhere and disappear into nothing! She has no clue about who the Spirit is or why he is there. She told me that this has happened a number of times in the past.
Also, she & her husband have heard knocking on the front door and scratching on the outside walls. When they go to check out the noise, there is no one there! Nothing. No one around. It is also heard during the nighttime, and again nothing there. There is a swing set out in the back yard where she was sitting one day. Out of nothing, a voice told her to “Get Off!” She heard it plain as day!
They also have a dog for a pet. She told me that their dog will not enter the kitchen, at times, because it knows something strange is in there! Just sit’s growling and looking into the kitchen! It is often said that animals can sense the presence of Spirits. Most of the time their dog enters the kitchen with no problem.
Now, this is the home that is located right next to the Squire House. I was told that it also has “strange” things that have happened here over the years and still do. It’s not as old as the Squire House, but I believe it was built in the early 1800’s like a number of other old homes in Oley.
I have known this small ole’ Town since my day’s attending Oley High School back in the ’60s, but I’ve never known some of the homes to be haunted. While talking with this nice informative Lady, I was shocked to hear about all this! It can be very informative when you just walk up and ask people questions about what you see. Believe this or not? I do!
Thanks for stopping by.
