Villisca Axe Murder haunted House

In our opinion, this house is not now, nor it has ever got a haunted place.

After spending dozens of hours filming in this house for the documentary for many hours of the day and the night, we have no paranormal experience to report anything.

Moreover, we have interviewed and received so many emails from every former resident of the house between 1936 and 1993. All the interviewers and emails say that the house got not haunted.

My friends and neighbors thought that it is a bit spooky to live in the murder house. The residents near the home found their fears somewhat amusing.

Before the ghost hunters from Nebraska declared the house as a haunted house in the year 1999, if the visitors have asked a Villisca resident for directions to the haunted house, the residents would either have got directed that visitors to the wrong home or the local people would not have known that they were talking about Villisca haunted house. Before the year 1999, The Moore house never had been called a “haunted house.”

From the year 1936-1942, Berdine Miller lived in the murder house with her family. Her mother sold Avon, and her father was a night watchman.

They paid $8 as the rent of the house per month. We interviewed her in the year 1994 about sharing her experience living in the haunted house.
