The Haunting on Brownsville Road
Bob Cranmer, a well-known local politician from Brentwood, PA, has been fascinated with the house at 3406 Brownsville Road for as long as he can remember. As a kid, he’d pass the property on his way to a friend’s house and always stop to look at the home. Its stately wrap-around porch and beautiful, expansive windows gave the impression of “success.” To Bob, living in that house would mean that he’d “made something of himself.” In the Fall of 1988, Bob is informed that his dream home is for sale. He buys it and moves his wife, Lesa, and their four children, Jessica, Bobby, David, and Charlie, into the home. From the day they arrive, the family begins to report strange paranormal experiences, such as doors closing, phantom footsteps down the hall and lights turning on and off. At first the family makes a joke that their house is haunted by “a friendly ghost.” But one night, the paranormal activity in the Cranmer’s home takes a dark turn. For years, the entity wreaks havoc on the family. Bob Cranmer and his son, Bobby Jr., tell of the dark energies in their home, and the years-long process it took to free the home, and the family, from its clutches.
