There is a dark stain in the wood flooring on the second-floor landing it is said to be the blood stain of the man the slave pushed down the steps.There has been many attempts to try and remove the stain with different types of cleaning agents but to no avail.There is a report of a jealous husband who returned from the sea to find his wife in the arms of another man and he threww her down the steps killing her.During the civil war union troops took over the house and the officers stayed inside and the enlisted men camped out in the front yard.Three soldiers were told to go to Hamock House when they couldn't find hospitable lodging in town. After their arrival at Hamock House they were never seen again, until 1915 when the porch rotted away workers found the remains of the 3 soldiers.One of the workers said "Well that's what happened to them Yankees".During more recent renovations a human shoulder blade was unearthed in the back yard.A young captain came home from the sea to find his home all lit up for a party as he entered the house he ran up the steps to find his fiance in the arms of a young British officer he became enraged and drew his sword and killed the young officer on the spot, as his fiance screamed at that's my brother.The young officers spirit still haunts Hamock House.

I wasn't aware of Hells Gate in Spartanburg. I live in Greenville which isn't too far away from Sparkle City. Have you actually been to Hells Gate? If so, what happened to you?

Thanks for that encounter. theres a cemetery not far from where i live that many people claim you can see a young boy crying at his grave.
mile, have you gone there? If so, have you spoken to him to see what can be done for him?

I live about 5 miles from this cemetery. The actual name is Oakwood cemetery (it's off Oakwood St.) but most people know it as Hell's Gate. I have recently been there (not alone) a couple of times in the evening with an EMF meter and camera and gotten a few pictures of some orbs but nothing definative on the meter. There is one section in the back of the cemetery that is down a hill into the woods that was the children's burial area. It's a very old part of the cemetery and I got a picture with multiple orbs there. In another area we stopped in, my wife heard faint singing for about 10-15 seconds. It was a warm evening (July 4th) but at this spot it was opressively hot. I took some pictures and got one with a very clear orb hovering over a headstone where my wife heard the singing. I agree this is not the place to be late in the evening but a couple of hours after dark is probably ok, before the "bad" night people come out. I am attaching the picture that I described above of the single orb.
