Old houses have a lot of character and can sometimes be more affordable than modern homes, but they also come with some unique drawbacks.
For one thing, their age often means that they require extensive renovations that will either cost a lot of time, money, or both to make them safe to live in.
But it's also true that when a house changes hands multiple times over the course of an entire century, there's a chance that one of the previous owners left something weird and often really creepy inside.
Sometimes it's hard not to feel that these are pranks people left behind to make us feel like we're living in a horror story, but other cases can make us think that something legitimately terrible happened there and stayed hidden for decades.
And the lengths that one previous owner went to conceal a mysterious discovery has a lot of people worried.
