We have heard many stories about “haunted antiques” through the years, and we often ask readers to send us their stories.
Clocks seem to be the most likely to be haunted. One reader’s mother bought a modern sunburst wall clock in 1952. It stayed on the kitchen wall. In 1982, her father died and in 1992 her mother began dating. Whenever the boyfriend came over, the clock would make a “grunting” noise.
According to the reader, “Mother married and her new husband asked that the clock be thrown out, but I put it in the attic. In 2006, they divorced and I brought the clock into the kitchen. It is quiet now. Mother said she should have listened to the clock.”
No one has told us of a dangerous example. Many have suggested that returning the antique to a better condition or a more comfortable place in the house seems to solve the problem.
