Welles House - Real Haunted Place
- 46 S. Welles St
- Wilkes Barre, PA
Strange deaths and tragedies have occurred at the Welles House, a property that's been compared to that of the Amityville Horror house. The home was originally built for industrialist Augustus C. Laning. Odd occurrences of death include Laning's nephew being killed there during a fire when lightening striked the barn. It ignited a fire, and left his nephew trapped under the body of a horse. Other reported incidents include a man dropping dead while walking in front of the house for no known reason, two suicides and four deaths at the house when it was a rental in the late 19th to mid 20th century, as well as residents suffering from mental and physical illnesses. Haunting events like sounds of footsteps, moans, shrieks, and blood spots appearing on the living room wall have also been reported.

A visit to the perimeter of the Welles house
I walked the perimeter of the house and of course it was boarded up and I would not enter a secured property. I would however like to investigate the house and would like to find out who the current owner is and if they would be agreeable to this. Please contact me through my email if you would be able to help me My name is Joe and my email is below this letter Thank youPosted 5/20/19
Me and my crew spent 2 nights in this house. Alot of personal expierences ..sickness, dizziness, feeling of dread and saddness. Didnt really catch anything on EVP. EMF spikes on staircase. Alot of my crew felt like they were being watched and were not supposed to be in the house.
We plan on going back as a part 2 in 2019Posted 9/22/18

I know this house very well
I know this house and the history very well. First Laning's nephew wasn't killed at this house but at the farm in Hunlock Creek area. He was trapped under a horse after lightning struck the barn.
I know the owner of this house and he has done Paranormal investigations there where he has caught many unexplained things. John Zaffia, aka the godfather of the Paranormal also stayed at this house and said it was infested with negative energy.
After the investigations were done, the owner offered the house to me and my husband to buy. I was interested but my husband was set against it!!
Since then, the house has been boarded up and no one has been there.Posted 7/3/17
