Idaho Falls: Crowley House

Many people walking by have reported the sound of running water and also trees being lit up from an unknown light source (NOTE**there is no longer running water or electricity at this vacant lot). People say that his lit is haunted by a family that was murdered by the father/husband and that he can sometimes be seen roaming around.

Legend has it that if you go over the hill at dusk on a certain night you can see the kids just before you hit them.

A family lived in a house, which was located on 45th RD just at the top of a hill. By driving over the hill at a fast speed, you wouldn't have a chance to stop if something was in the road on the other side. One day around dusk the two kids that lived in the house were playing in the yard. The kids decided to cross the road and were hit by an oncoming car unable to see them. The family mourned the death of the two children but the mother never recovered from the tragic incident and about a year later killed herself. The father could not bare the burden of losing his two children and his wife and hung himself in the garage some time later.

Update: Notes (8/17/2002) On a recent trip to Idaho Falls, I visited the Crowley House and it has been destroyed! We are looking to see if anyone has a picture of the house when it was standing.

    The Crowley House is below my canal!!!! Me and my friends always go there and see if there is anything to see. One time me and my best friend went there around dusk, I didn't see anything or anyone but I looked in the window of the garage and saw a rope >>

    I actually went to this house when I was 16 years old. I am now 28 years old. My friends and I were always interested in ghosts and the things beyond, so this was the place for us. We walked through every part of this house, garage and outer storage unit( >>

    I think it was scary and very chilling. If the people live next door, then they might notice that they might hear screams or hearing of footprints. It reminds me of a story I used to read. >>

    The truth.... first of all; the lot and the crowley house have no connection in origin or location, the story of the lot predates the demolition of the crowley house by a good five years, plus ""the lot"" is said to be surrounded by a six foot wood planke >>

    The Crowley home isn't far from where I live, and it looks(although I can't be positive) much like the land my great-grandparents had a house on. It was owned in the family its whole existence and was torn down still owned by the family. I'd like to know >>
