Home Owners Are Sharing Creepy Discoveries They’ve Made After Moving In (50 Pics)

Buying a new house is a big deal. Unless you had it built yourself, there have likely been plenty of previous owners. Who knows what they got up to.

I live in an old apartment in Chicago, and every once in a while, I wonder who lived here before I did. I don’t think about it too much, though, because I don’t want to end up being creeped out.

These people got more than they bargained for when they moved into their new homes.

“I rented this cool house in the hills of a Los Angeles suburb and there is a lot of DIY stonework on the property – little walls, an archway, steps and this dungeon built into the hill right behind the house. The history I’ve gathered is that a stonemason lived here for decades until he passed away from old age in the 90s, when the current owner purchased the property and began renting it. No one I’ve talked to knows what the dungeon was used for”
