Selma, AL - The Trotter House

This private residence seems to have a presence that is often trying to catch the attention of the family who lives there: a shadow seen from the corner of your eye, doors open that had been firmly shut, lights turned on in empty rooms, knocks, steps, falling plants, exploding jars and floating balls of light. Years ago, a young man, who lived in the house with his mother, was killed in an automobile accident. He died 50 years to the day before the new owners signed a contract on the house, lay in state in the dining room for three days and was buried 50 years to the day before the family moved into the house. This home was featured in the FOX Network show Encounters. A psychic connected with the show had several “brushes” with the spirit.
