dddavid's Live Ghost Cam, Location Unknown
One of the most extensive web cam sites online is the mysterious Victorian house found on the dddavid's Ghost Cam website. The house is as mysterious as the owner, presumably David. He doesn't disclose where the house is located or who he is, but he does offer visitors a whopping 20 web cams set up inside and outside the house along with a few tidbits about his fellow resident.
David also states that prior to moving into the home, he was doing some renovations but found it difficult. Something always hampered the project. His tools would mysteriously disappear only to reappear an hour or so later. He found that several rooms had locks on both sides of the doors. He describes the home as a "very old five-bedroom castle-like Victorian." Each room features four web cams, as does the outdoor section.
As far as what type of paranormal activity David and others have witnessed here, there are almost too many to list. Children's voices, sightings of ghosts and orbs, things moving, doors or cabinets slamming closed, electronic voice phenomena (EVPs) of the home's resident "Shadow Man," and mysterious lights are just a small sampling of what viewers might witness.
Watching for Ghosts Online
Watching live ghost cameras can be time consuming and requires a great deal of patience so you don't miss a possible apparition. While there aren't many "live feed" ghost cams, those still around are greatly appreciated by aspiring ghost hunters and those interested in the paranormal.
