The Old Abbott Mansion:Reading

This old house  located on Abbott road is said to have mysterious things occuring there. Legend says that when the last of the Abbott family was on their death bed they sold the property with one condition, the home had to be torn down and the property used as farm land. Needless to say, it was not. People that have been inside the house report shades that rise and lower themselves, lights turning on and off, and a gruesome face appears in one of the windows. There have also been complaints about the french doors locking from the opposite side, a loud banging on the floor at 3:00 a.m. and mysterious dusty footprints that appear on every other step leading upstairs. The puzzling thing about the footprints is that only a visitor to the house seems to be able to wipe them away. There was even a tenant whose pet dog died in such a gruesome manner that police felt as if a human hand could not have done such damage. Cats seem to remain unharmed. You will never see birds or other wild animals near the house though. The young son of a tenant once left his t-shirt lying on the floor and a mysterious light started glowing around it Shortly thereafter, the child was accidentally shot and killed.
