Woman Shares 'Creepy' Feature Of Her House Built In 1937

A woman in the US has revealed a 'creepy' feature of her 1937 home - and now people feel pretty confident that some weird s**t has gone down there.

The resident, from Montana, posted a photo on Reddit of the original key to her house, which was built 84 years ago.

The key itself looks fairly normal, but some of the locks in the house are rather unusual.

Sharing the photo, she explained in the thread r/interestingasf**k: "The original key to my house built in 1937. It still unlocks all of the doors in the house.

Hmmm, only so much you can relax when you know the room you're in can be locked from the outside.

Indeed, people wasted no time in assuming that some questionable deeds had gone down in the abode over the decades.

One person commented: "That's from the days when being sent to your room was a real punishment."

Another wrote: "In much earlier times than 1937, you would take in travellers that were passing through (complete strangers), and this would make sense. But 1937 makes it quite sinister to me."

A third said: "Dude you got bodies under your house."

Responding to the latter comment, the woman wrote: "It would not surprise me. I've found some creepy things here."

Naturally, people demanded that she elaborate on the mysterious creepiness, and she duly obliged.

She wrote: "My son dug a big hole in the yard and found a bunch of weird bottles this summer.

"I did some research on the labels. One of them was some sort of creosote that was used in the early 1900s as a cure for whooping cough. But it actually killed some people from the fumes spreading with no ventilation.

"He got it on his skin and it burned and left a brown stain for several days."

Yeah, it's a bit weird, isn't it? It sounds like she should probably discourage hole digging as a hobby for as long as they live at the creepy house - and it gets creepier too.

She wrote: "I also just found a very sharp samurai knife in a high up cupboard that I never use.

"I've been here for 5 years and it definitely does not belong to me."

'Definitely does not belong to me', you say. Sounds like the lady doth protest too much, me thinks.
