The Story Behind North Dakota’s Most Haunted House Will Give You Nightmares

Whether you believe in the paranormal or not, this house and its story will still freak you out. There are a few notoriously haunted places in North Dakota but this is definitely one of the creepiest. The house is known as the Lion House, but its official name is the McGillivray House – named after the man who had it built in Dickinson in the 1890s, A. C. McGillivray. It’s been in the renovation process for the past two decades by multiple owners with no one to complete it; everyone who buys it leaves before completion. It makes you wonder… why?

After that, many people have reported weird occurrences happening at the Lion House. Even locals who live near there have said they felt uneasy going by it. Back when it was an apartment, there were renters who claimed that they saw the ghostly figure of a man around the house. Was this man Mr. McGillivray himself? Or was it possibly the insane father? We’ll never truly know, but what we do know is that this stone fortress holds deep, dark secrets, and if walls could speak…I don’t think I’d want to listen.
