X Hidden Places People discovered in their own homes
When you’re buying a new house, it’s important to do a thorough check of the rooms and hallways, to make sure you know what you’re getting.
Students in Ohio
Living away from home for the first time as a student can be a marvelous experience, and the house that you and your friends find will certainly live in your memories.
It’s important, when you get a new house, to explore all the nooks and crannies
A thorough inspection of a potential house might save you a lot of trouble… especially if you find something creepy.
Not all of these hidden finds are evil and ominous. A couple that recently purchased a home in 2005 went on to do renovations and found a secret passageway behind a bookcase.
It’s possible that your house’s previous owner left you treasures and gifts behind, and it’s also possible that they aren’t the presents you want to find.
Again, as a student it can be hard to find the perfect place, but you can probably do better than a place that can be labeled “creepily occupied”.
Sometimes, if you discover something creepy or odd in your house, there’s no rush to investigate.
A home is where you go to feel safe from the outside world, but sometimes the things you fear literally live in your walls.
Not all of the odd, secret rooms we found are in America. A family in Norway discovered a secret loft that might well be of historical significance… even if it is a little creepy.
Every house makes weird noises at night, from odd creaking, to a water drip… but sometimes it goes too far.
Finding extra room in your apartment can be a godsend in a busy city… but finding an extra room can be terrifying.
Hidden rooms in houses can often be seen as horrible and creepy, but this honorable mention section is about these same secret passages in historic buildings and castles, which are much more acceptable.
Mt Ste Odile
The monastery of Mount Sainte-Odile is located high in France’s Vosges Mountains, and is home to numerous priceless medieval books and manuscripts.
If the New York Times dubs a place “The Castle of Mysteries”, it’s probably got some whacky secrets.
If you spend enough time engineering imaginary secrets, your real life might well involve them. Dunnerden is the name of a home in Aspen, built by the software developer Doug Carlston.
This concludes our list of hidden places people discovered in their own homes. Which secret, creepy room was your favorite? What spooky hideaways did we miss? Let us know in the comments below.

I have Mr. Nightmare's better description for the screaming one.
Tony Smith had just bought his first house. When he entered the basement, he would hear strange noises. Strange noises Iike screaming and moans of pain. The noises came from the part of the basement where no rooms were. I assumed it was some sort of animal, Tony stated.
Later one night, Tony awoke to metallic banging noises. In the daylight, Tony found a hatch door that blended with the dirt. Tony never went down there. He just sealed the thing shut before whoever was in there could come back again.
When we moved into our new house which is 56 years old.
We bought it but the previous owner had died in the house.
He left behind a stone squirrel a stone lizard a sundial ( which is worth a lot) and in the attic over 100 books
All about murder
My friend has something under his stairs, I was terrified, but it is where they store stuff. I was only terrified, because it was dark, they do not have it anymore, I found it about 4 years ago, but they already knew it and told me. Actually I am not sure if it was under the stairs, or closet.
I knew this guy who said he found documents at his work where people had very small properties of land that are just around 2 square meters small. It doesn't make sense why there'd be properties that small so we just had fun making theories, one of them is that people buy tiny land in the outskirts where not much people would notice any activity then they'd build a large sized undeground house there to avoid payment. That's actually absolutely possible and a pretty smart move... Until someone built over that area, unless it was a bank or something you could break into that had valuables. LOL Just a theory though.
Why didn't he convert the tapes to digital before handing them over to the police? Nigga, if you find some interesting tapes and you just hand them to the police right after, you shouldn't even be telling people about it
i found a brick of cocaine hiden in a hotel room i was hiding my wollet when there was a book but it wws not a book it was a killo of pure cocaine i lived a millionare life style of it and still have a jam jar full left what i use at xmas and birthdays
I have a reoccurring dream throughout many years that either in our existing home or a newly purchased home I find a passage way to a huge bonus of extra rooms and priceless furniture. I should have my dreams evaluated.
my friend lives in a church that was active in the 1800s to the 1960s and there is a loft that has a weird door just out of reach and I've been invited to dinner tonight so I'm going to bring a ladder because they don't have one. either we'll find old Christmas decoration or the Holy grail
+Michael Bender Yeah apparently there was a rumor that they had some bunker or something underneath the denver airport and that the paintings inside the airport looked like paintings of the end of the world. Jesse Ventura used to have a TV show but I forget what it was called. It was a cool show though where he went and tried to uncover government bullshit. Anyway it was proven that there is nothing under there and the paintings are easily explained.
When Macmillan talked about the wind of change, he was referring to the desire of African nations for their independence. But he might just as easily have been talking about education in England, where many concerns - about the extent of underprivilege, the need for a more child-centred style of education in primary schools, the unfairness of the selective tripartite system of secondary schools, and wider access to higher education - were now reaching a climax.
Tory education policy.
In his book The Making of Tory Education Policy in Post-War Britain 1950-1986 , Christopher Knight argues that in the period between 1950 and 1974 the Conservative Party failed to fashion an educational policy in line with Conservative philosophy (Knight 1990:3).
However, the beginnings of a Tory education policy can be seen, Knight suggests, in One Nation - A Tory Approach to Social Problems , published by the Conservative Political Centre in 1950. It was written by nine members of what became known as the One Nation group of Tory MPs, including Edward Heath, lain Macleod, Angus Maude and Enoch Powell, who were committed to preserving the church schools and the private sector, to defending the tripartite system, and to opposing what they saw as the enforced uniformity of comprehensive education.
In his contribution to One Nation , Maude wrote: The modern insistence on humanising teaching methods . must not be made an excuse for abandoning the traditional disciplines of learning . We deplore the present tendency to drag down the brighter children to the level of the dull ones (quoted in Knight 1990:12-13). It was perhaps unsurprising that the Tories should have spent little effort in developing a coherent education policy in the early 1950s because, when they regained power in 1951, the overwhelming need was for more school places to cope with the rapidly rising birth rate. Oversize classes (forty or more pupils) and inadequate buildings were the dominant issues for politicians, civil servants and parents alike . A wider vision of schooling was not yet developed
