Walking Dead Ghost Town Up For Sale On Ebay (video)

(CNN) — The faded downtown of a small town in Georgia, made famous by an appearance on “The Walking Dead,” can now be yours for the right price.

Nine buildings in downtown Grantville, Georgia are for sale on eBay and the seller tells CNN it’s a bargain.
Jim Sells, Grantville’s former mayor, bought the buildings in a foreclosure deal about four years ago during the recession. Sells and another investor are now putting them on the market for the starting bid of $680,000.

The town was the setting for “Clear,” an episode in season three of the hit AMC television show in which protagonist Rick Grimes returns to his abandoned hometown to look for weapons. A Facebook page offers walking tours of the town’s filming locations.

But soon that won’t be Grantville’s only claim to fame, Sells says.

The former mayor says that four movies are slated to be shot in Grantville in upcoming months.

Since the sale was first announced, Sells says thousands of people have checked out the listing. He says potential buyers are asking “lots of serious questions about revenues and property taxes.”

Sells says Grantville has plenty of potential but has been overlooked by developers.

“It’s a great picturesque little town,” he says. “This is a bargain price.”

Did a Ghost pull this toddler to the ground ?? (video)

Lexi suddenly falls over inexplicably
Does this home video show a young girl being pushed to the floor by a ghost?

That’s what the parents of one-year-old Lexi Hood think after she fell over while playing peek-a-boo.

Gareth and Charlene were filming her at home in Bridgend, Wales, as she stood in front of a TV, but then inexplicably drops to the floor.

Mr Hood told MailOnline: ‘Lexi is very sturdy on her feet and is a very confident walker and a happy funny baby.

‘We were watching TV and there was no way she could go back like that.

‘We were filming her as a bit of a memento because she was doing peek-a-boo and she thought we couldn’t see her when she covered her eyes.

‘She just went shooting back. Her arms went out to the side and she went back, as if she has been pushed or pulled.

‘Then she said “naughty boy” like she usually says when she is telling off the cat if it nips her or something.

‘When we looked at the film it really freaked us out – it doesn’t look at all like she is just falling.’

Haunted Mansion for sale on Staten Island, New York

A 10-bedroom Staten Island mansion, which local legend says is haunted by the spirits of the former owner and his daughters, has hit the market for $2.31 million.

The 7,700-square-foot Italianate villa-style home — at 2475 Richmond Road — was once owned by Gustav A. Mayer, a 19th-century inventor whose sugar-cookie recipe later became Nabisco’s Nilla Wafers.

He died in 1918, but his two daughters stayed there until beyond their 100th birthdays and never went outside.

In fact, the Mayer girls, Paula and Emilie, never even walked down the stairs — holing up in just two bedrooms of the “Grey Gardens of Staten Island” for the better part of a century.

They used an elaborate pulley system that brought in their groceries, mail and any other outside-world needs.

Their ghosts are said to still roam the hallways — but Mark Anthony, who’s known as the “psychic lawyer,” said the family’s presence is “positive.”

“It’s the fear and superstition attached to spirit communication which makes people think that encountering a spirit is spooky,” he said.

“The owner is super-touchy about people calling it haunted,” a source said.

Mysterious lights appear on the dwarf planet Ceres

The discovery of a bright spot on Ceres has given rise to lots of speculation. And now we've learned something new: it has a friend. The second spot is not quite as bright, but still weirdly reflective compared to the rest of the dwarf planet. And one scientist has a possible explanation for both of these bright spots.

The latest round of photographs was taken by Dawn on February 19, 2015 when the spacecraft was still 46,000 kilometers away (29,000 miles) from the dwarf planet. It reveals not just the bright spot that has been provoking speculation for years, but now our imaging resolution is getting good enough to spot a second smaller and dimmer bright spot apparently in the same basin as the main attraction.

It is believed the spectre is actually the spirit of Dame Sybil Penn, a woman who nursed Elizabeth I through smallpox in the 1500s.

Supernatural experts say she died of the same disease shortly after and continues to haunt the halls of the royal palace in Surrey.

The ghost, which has not been spotted for years, has emerged again this week in a 12-year-old girl's photograph.

Holly Hampsheir was taking photos of the 16th century stately home during a visit last week.

But when she looked back at the snaps on her iPhone she saw a mysterious figure lurking by an old fire place.

The spooky shadow is seen with long, flowing hair standing over her cousin Brook McGee, also 12, as she admires the Elizabethan building.

Yet in another photo just seconds after, the ghost seems to have disappeared.

“I was totally freaked out," Brook, of Hornchurch, Havering, told The Sun.

“I didn’t see anything. People say the room goes cold when ghosts appear but we had no idea."
Holly’s mum Angie said she was "speechless".

The 48-year-old added: "There was no one else in that room and she’s floating through the rope."

According to records, The Grey Lady was first spotted in 1829 – the same year her tomb was moved from the palace.
