It is very well known for the Salem Witch Trials which happened in 1692.

Amityville Horror

George and Kathy Lutz moved into the three story collonial in Amityville on New York’s Long Island in December 1975. They were thrilled by the house. Due to the horror history, this house was sold in less price. Lutz family bought the house despite of knowing the stories about the house. The sprawling house at 112 Ocean Ave. had cost them just $80,000, and they loved it. “It was a dream come true,” George Lutz remembers.


True, the house had been the scene of a horrible multiple murder a little over a year before, when 23-year-old Ronald DeFeo went from room to room methodically shooting his parents and his four brothers and sisters in their beds. But the Lutzes sat down with their three young children and agreed the family could handle it.

Just in case though, the day they moved in they had a priest, Father Ray Pecoraro, bless the house. According to Lutz, the priest said he felt an unseen hand slap him in the sewing room and heard a voice say “Get out.” Then, Lutz says, Pecoraro became ill with flu-like symptoms and his hands began to bleed.

“I was blessing the sewing room,” says the priest. “It was cold. It was really cold in there. I’m like, ‘Well, gee, this is peculiar,’ because it was a lovely day out, and it was winter, yes, but it didn’t account for that kind of coldness. I was also sprinkling holy water, and I heard a rather deep voice behind me saying, ‘Get out!’ It seemed so directed toward me that I was really quite startled. I felt a slap at one point on the face. I felt somebody slap me, and there was nobody there.” The family moved in anyway, but within days they began to notice strange phenomena.  “There were … odors in the house that came and went,” Lutz says. “There were sounds. The front door would slam shut in the middle of the night…. I couldn’t get warm in the house for many days.”


Lutz says the family kept the fireplace burning day and night in an attempt to stay warm, and found strange gelatinous drops on the carpet when they woke up in the morning. At times, he claims, his wife was physically transformed into an old woman, with the face, hair and wrinkles of a 90-year-old.
 Lutz claims that he mysteriously woke at 3:15 a.m. almost every day — around the same time the DeFeo murders were believed to have happened. One night, he says, he heard his children’s beds “slamming up and down on the floor” above him but he was unable to do anything because he was immobilized in bed by an unseen force. Later that night, he woke to see his wife levitating and moving across the bed, he says.
The next morning, just 28 days after they moved in, the Lutz family fled the house, leaving their clothes in the closets and food in the refrigerator. If the family had not left, Lutz says, he believes something horrible would have happened. “I try not to think about it,” he says.


After fleeing the home in January 1976, George and Kathy Lutz, with the assistance of Channel 5 news assistant, Laura DiDio, contacted Ed and Lorraine Warren, a husband and wife team of self-proclaimed demonologists. The Warrens first entered 112 Ocean Avenue on February 24, 1976. Lorraine Warren described an “overwhelming sense of sadness and depression” throughout the entire home. After entering the basement, Ed felt a powerful, inhuman presence. “It was if I were standing underneath a waterfall.”, Ed recalls in a later interview. “And the pressure was driving me down to the floor. And I commanded, in the name of Jesus Christ, what was there to reveal it’s identity…I understood right at that point that what we were dealing with was no ghost. This was no ordinary haunted house.”
