look, all this fuss about the 'hunted longfellow house' is bogus! my uncle ran the house from 2000 until katrina washed everything in the bottom froor away. yes, i had been watching cartoons one day on the bottom floor, i had heard something above so i got on the elevator an chacked it out. when i checked it out it was nothing. old houses are creepy! that's the only reason people think they're haunted. they resort to things that make their own life more interesting-interacting with a ghost for example. and the room where the slave was beaten, is perfectly fine. i've spent the night in it way more than one time. so people, will you please stop trying to excite you boring life and actually do something with it?! my uncle's name is Jean Arnold and is married to kim Arnold Weesie Jeffords, 13, Robertsdale AL weesie_cowgurl@yahoo.com if you are offended with anything i am sorry.

the longfellow house is haunted!! I myself have been in the beautiful house and have felt the frigid, cold air that stays in the long hall. there are no windows in the hall, but that damn cold draft is always present...

I live in Pascagoula my whole life and have heard nothing but stories about that house. I am 22 years old now and after Katrina hit, a doctor and his wife and kids moved in. Nothing scary going on. How do I know? They are customers of mine. I'm sure we woulda heard something by now. So, i doubt a "slave" was beaten in that house. BOGUS!

i am not very familiar with the house but i have heard alot of stories like the mad barber *which i do not believe* and the beaten slave. I have heard a story that my friend told me of a time he was staying for a wedding. Dissembodied screams and black full-body apperisions and blood stains. All i know is that i am probably never going there.

I have seen the ghost of the little girle that lived there many years ago that fell from the top floor down the stairs. She was in the 3rd floor window late one night when I was coming over there to see my GF who lived in the apt. that was to the Right of the house. This was back in 1990 or 1991. The house was haunted and I know what I seen.

I visited this amazing house when it was delapitated and empty in 1995-96. A friend took me into the home while telling me the stories of all the haunted tales that have been told..it gave me the chills. I am very glad to see that the "Longfella" house still stands and has been renovated. I wish one day to visit this wonderfully nostalic home, for it is an amazing piece or history and art!!

i have lived in pascagoula all my life. and heard stories about it when i was in elementary
school. i am now 40.  when i was young my aunt and uncle were down and wanted to
see the house and took pictures of it. when the pictures were developed there was a
white blur in the picture where the window was on the third floor. and when i was about
25 , me my husband and two others entered the house just out of curiousity when they
began to tear it down before the scruggs bought it. and haunted or not when i reached the top of those stairs at the iron gate where the slaves were kept. it sure was an eerie
feeling and yes cool breeze . i didn't go past the iron gates. so haunted or not. i believe
the cool air. and when i was young all the kids on the bus would tell the story of the blood. i was scared to death, but i wasn't sticking around to look for them.  i left.

I have lived next door to the Longfellow House for close to 5 years and NOTHING HAPPENS THERE....Two Doctors live there with their 5 children. There are a set of triplets and a smaller child too as well as two older kids. I hear the laughter and joy of the children playing. Years ago the house was a wonderful wine bar and I spent MANY happy hours there with NO GHOST.

I too, have lived in Pascagoula my whole life. Though I've heard the stories, I still wonder how much is true. My Grandfather has worked for the Jackson County Sheriffs Departement since around the 60's. He has told many of our family and close friends some of the unexplaned experiances he has had being called out to the home over the years. Because he's is a police officer, and is also a veteran, I know he's not the kind to exaggerate or lie to me. His wife (my grandmother), worked in the home as a waitress when she was young. She too has told of her own, and others whom have had unexplained occurances at the home. I know the home was constucted around or during the time of the Civil War. It's also fact that there is a tunnel uder the house that leads out to one of our coastal islands. The tunnel was cemented off years ago, due to delapidation and old unsafe structure. You can find this and other historical information about the Longfellow/Bellevue home in our public library. Needless to say though, I have never had the chance myself to tour the house, but have always wanted to. I catch myself staring at it evertime we drive by it, and always have. I'm sure it would settle some of my own, and others thoughts about the stories, if a parinormal team were to ever investigate there. I also think that mabe the doctors who live there currently may want to put to rest the tales, even if they themselves have had experiences. I say that because thier children are still youg, and im sure they would be frightened should they ever hear the spooky stories. All in all, I will always wonder.I hope this article is some help for any one who's curious. If perhaps I offended anyone, I am truely sorry!

Haunted or not, I wish that they still hosted events. The house and property are absolutely beautiful and I would LOVE to get married there

I too was born and raised in Pascagoula and grew up hearing stories of this house being haunted. When I was about 19 (I'm in my 30's now) some friends and myself snuck into the home which was then in the hands of the University of Mississippi. We explored all three floors and had several strange encounters. 

The beginning of which started when we crossed the property threshold and had a large owl screech down from one of the oak trees at us three different times that night. Once in the house I myself had experiences with cold air drafts (In the middle of summer). To my knowledge there was no a/c on because we would have heard it at some point. The cold spots could be felt in several different parts of the house. 

My particular experience came when I was in the 3rd floor window looking out towards the beach and my friend (Who was the lookout for the cops out on the street) called my cell phone and told me a large black shadow passed behind me as I approached the window. On my way down the stairs, right as I reached for the door handle to leave (running scared basically after that phone call) I heard a loud banging sound, like someone hitting a metal pot with a spoon, coming from the kitchen beside the back entrance to the house. That was my last experience in the house.

My friend who was with me said he heard whispers coming from the stairs as he prepared to descend and leave the house. He stopped at the top of the staircase and listened as the whispers seemed to grow louder (like someone walking toward him) until they stopped right  before they got to him. That was all he needed to witness before running scared as well. He was the only one of us on that floor at the time.

One of the strange things I noticed was that all the fireplace chimneys were bricked over. I guess because the house wasn't used for living in at that time (pre-Katrina) they were closed off for safety reasons? There was an elevator that lead to the cellar but none of my friends or myself were brave enough to get in it and go down and explore. The whole exploration took at the most 30 minutes before we got scared and left. It seems to me that some people experiences strange things and some people don't. There's no definite answer as to whether the house is or isn't haunted, especially now that a family is living there full time but it's still cool to hear people's experiences in this iconic and historic place.
