I can't account for what happened YEARS ago when the book was written, but no one I know that lives on our street has ever encountered anything out of the ordinary. The story is that the original home owners found out about the neighborhood being built on a old black graveyard (which is true) and decided they wanted out of their homes since the developer did not disclose this information prior to their buying their houses. They then said there were hauntings that occured and played the movie "Amityille Horror" in the court room as an example of the things they were encountering to try to get out of their mortgages. True or not, I can't say. But I can tell you there is no current activity. FYI, there is often confusion/rhumor that the movie "Amityville Horror" was fillmed on our street, but this is due to the homeowners playing the movie in the court room during the case against the developers.
With that said, due to the stories out there, our street is the BEST place to trick or treat on Halloween. Some years cops actually come to direct traffic due to the massive amounts of people that come to trick or treat on the "haunted street".

Not trying to be a bummer but I researched all of this when I first moved here and heard the stories. Just stating my findings since so many are interested in researching the same.

I first got info about the Black Hope curse from Unsolved Mysteries and I realize that they have to make the story interesting, not entirely true.
I am sorry that the Haneys had a hard time of it and I hope they are doing better now.

Okay I am not sure but isn't Poppet's way the area that is north of Houston and was a big subdivision that was built on top of an old freed slave cementary but the new home owners were never told that information. There is a movie that is like the Lifetime movie type format about the story and of course the movie Poltergeist was based upon the story of Poppet's Way. If I am wrong please someone let me know but I think that I am right. By the way, the movie Poltergeist was and still is in my opinion one of the scariest movies ever, I could never watch static on a T.V. after that movie again.
And, in parting from you now,
This much let me avow---
You are not wrong, who deem
That my days have been a dream:
Yet if hope has flown away In a night,
Or in a day, In a vision, or in none,
Is it therefore the less gone?
All that we see or seem
Is but a dream within a dream.

Secondly, the subdivision is called Newport and ALL of it is haunted....The house on Poppets Way is just the most popular because of the court cases between the first owners and the developers of Newport.
If there is anymore information you would like me to explicate, let me know. I have a Honors Thesis on the subject.

IDK... as far as I'm concerned, Black Hope Cemetery is the only known and proven cemetery out there. However, the area was a main route for rail lines being built between Beaumont and Houston back in the 1800's and early 1900's. Alot of deaths occurred during construction of the rails and people were buried in unmarked graves. Newport sits yards away from the railroad and it's possible that there are unknown gravesites all over the place. I do know that there has also been mention of an Indian burial ground closer towards the river and lake in the back of the neighborhood.
Rather the neighborhood is truly haunted or not remains a mystery, but there are people who swear that their experiences in Newport are like nothing they've ever encountered before they got there or after they left.
