Must be something new. When we were kids and there was no Snob Hill we snuck into the pasture land at all hours and never saw any of the apparitions claimed above. And Sam Bass? Never heard of him.

I grew up in the area too. I remember it before house were there. When the houses were first being built there was a vandalism problem. I remember one house in particular that got the brunt of it. Every thime it got repaired it was vandaliled again. It was always kinda a creepy place but I never saw any ghostly figures. I even new a kid who ran away from home and lived in a tent at Knob Hill. I don't recall him seeing any ghost either.

Just wanted to add a little information on Sam Bass. so here it is for those who have never heard of him. Sam Bass was born in Mitchell, Indiana on July 21, 1851and died in Round Rock Texas on July 21, 1878.  Bass  moved to Denton Texas in 1871. He formed a gang and pulled off the largest single robbery of the Union Pacific Railroad to date about $60,000 ($ 1,197,000 in 2009 dollars) Bass and his gang held up two stagecoaches and four trains within 25 miles of Dallas and became the object of a man hunt by Pinkerton Agents and the Texas Rangers. After one of his gang turned informant they were ambushed in Round Rock. As far as where the Knob Hill part comes in you got me. But theres a little info on Sam Bass for you.

Our house has been haunted for years. I didn't know about the place on Nob Hill. Can anyone tell me the address.

My husband I live at the top of Nob (spelled correctly) Hill and have both seen figures (or what we have believed to be) moving across our backyard at night.  We have joked about it since we moved in 5 years ago, but really didn't think much of it.  Makes me wonder if there are spirits.  If there are they certainly aren't anything but friendly since we both see a figure move between the two bedrooms in the downstairs and have never had any problems.
