MOUNT PLEASANT HAUNTINGS: Mill Pond Park By Joe Borlik || October 28, 2009 Tags: Halloween, Mount Pleasant Hauntings
Samantha Harris, a CMU alumni and president of the Michigan Paranormal Research Association, said she has witnessed too many examples of paranormal activity to list. She is convinced that Millpond Park, 607 S. Adams St., is haunted.November 2006, during her freshman year at CMU, Harris and two friends investigated Mill Pond to determine whether or not it was haunted. She said as they walked through the dark park late at night she started having thoughts and visions of a paranormal presence trying to scratch them with claws. “I’ve never had this happen before but it was like a movie in my mind’s eye; some could describe that as a premonition but it wasn’t that vivid; more like daydreaming,” she said. “I saw something making the gesture of clawing at me, towards my face.”She didn’t mention it to here friends until they were leaving.Later that night, she got a call from one of her friends who was with her during the investigation and said he found claw marks, which didnot belong to thorns or a tree, on the side of his body, while he was getting ready to go to sleep.Harris said she gets an odd feeling in the park.“There is the feeling of someone or something, watching you. Your every move. You’re not wanted or welcome there and I do feel that something resides there,” she said.
