Description:
This haunted neighborhood has been written about in the novel, "The Black Hope Horror". The neighborhood was constructed over an old slave cemetery and many of the residents were terrorized by the angry spirits that dwelled below. No one had a clue as to what was causing it until a couple, while digging a swimming pool, unearthed the remains of a couple who had been buried in their backyard. It is a story that is very similar to the movie "Poltergeist", but it is frighteningly real. Most of the activity is centered at the east end of Poppets Way and the side street that connects at the east end. According to the book, people would rent a house on the street and abruptly leave within a month...and this was a very regular occurrence.

I live in Crosby. Information reported about this house on Poppets Way in the novel is pretty accurate. A movie revolving around the house was also filmed here.

Poppets Way is a street in Newport. There are so many urban legends about this within the town. Some people say that if you go to the house at midnight during a full moon the house will 'sense' you there and the lights in front will flicker or shut off. The house is currently occupied.

My name is Jerry and I used to live in a newly built HUD project that my grandmother was the manager of across FM 2100 from the Newport subdivision called Crosby Plaza Apts. My aunt bought a home in Newport around 1981.I used to stay there with my cousins for the weekend and we would play games one of them ouija board. We would hear strange noises and scratching noises on her glass sliding door but I would always be the one to dismiss these weird events. I used to always feel uncomfortable staying in that house. I would hear lots of stories about homes in that neighborhood being haunted. Friends I went to school with reported lots of strange things like noises,light turning on and off, things being moved, etc. To think I used to go trick or treating in that neighborhood.

I'm sorry to inform you and your friend who lives in THE house on Poppets Way, but this is a true story and you can check out the book at the Crosby Library entitled "Black Hope Horror".  The film was of the same name and starred Patty Duke and Richard Crenna.  I believe that the male occupant of the house (the father of the girl who developed cancer) at the time of the graveyard discovery worked at the Shell Refinery in Deer Park. The developer was found not to be liable for building on top of a cemetary because it was not a properly deeded and platted cemetary. It was just a plot of land that was given to the black slaves of the plantation owner who used to own all of this land, so that the slaves could have a place to bury their dead. The locations of the bodies were etched in the trees since they had no tombstones or other markers available to them, also making it hard for the developer to know that there was a burial site there. Also, by law, the dead bodies that were dug up had to be replaced where they were found and are still there today. Eventually the family could not get the developer to pay them any damages and they just walked away from the house. Very sad, but true.  Good luck to your friend. and God Bless.

My name is Michael. I grew up on Poppets Way down near Afore Dr. I lived there for over 18 years & my mother lives in the same house to this day. The stories are TRUE. My house is on the west end of Poppets Way but I distinctly remember my own lights turning off & my fan & tv as well from time to time amongst other things. My younger brother used to sleep over at the house in question with his friend who used to live there. He & his friend used tell me stories of figures in the hallway & lights flickering & tv's turning off. I also have other friends who have told me of stories in their houses growing up too. In junior high & high school  Meadowbrook Village (the neighborhood within Newport that Poppets Way is located) there were probably 20-25 kids around my age who lived in MBV & there were several stories of occurances that some us experienced!
The McKinney family are the ones who owned the plantation that hired the free slaves. Their decendants still own a house just off Poppets Way near my house. There was an old trail we used to take that connected the back of MBV to the high school & we would walk sometimes after school instead of taking the bus. I remember coming accross an old cemetery which was really small but surrounded by an old rod iron fence with some old graves in it. Talk about creepy! I have no idea what happened to it but 15 years ago it scared the crap out of me!
There were alot of unexplainable "coincedences" on Poppets Way when I was growing up that happened to alot of different people. There are things in this world thatnot even science can explain....
Happy Halloween

I too grew up near Poppet's way.  My parents and i lived a few streets over.  However, a very good friend of my parents took care of me when I was 5-10 years old.  This friend lived directly across from the house in question on Poppet's way.  I never really encountered anything in my youth out there, but the wooded area at the East end of Poppet's way was always off limits.  As kids we were allowed to play anywhere we could imagine, but on several occaisions I distinctly remember being told, by several different people, to never go into the woods at the end of Poppet's way.  I never really thought much about it, but I happened to stumble upon this on the Internet.  My parents knew almost everyone in the neighborhood so I'll probably ask them about it.  I was running loose out there between 1979-1984.

i have lived on poppets way for 8 years now. the house in question is my neighbors house. yes, people are living their and have been from some time. they have reported nothing strange. me and my family have been through out all the surrounding woods. i do remember one hot, hot summer as me and my wife and daughter was walking through the woods we went through a really cold spot, not just a slight cold spot but every bit of a 25 to 30 degrees drop in the temp for about 5 feet, never again to come across this. the old tombstones mentioned belong to john simms ( born june 17th 1812 died feb 17th 1887) LIZZIE SIMMS, (BORN FEB.7TH 1841 DIED DEC.19TH 1926 AND MARY S. SIMMS(BORN JUNE 28TH 1824 DIED JUNE 7TH 1892) HURRICANE IKE WAS NOT NICE TO THE GRAVESIGHT, A FEW TREES FELL ON THE CORNER OF THE IRON FENSE AROUND IT. CROSBY IS SO FULL OF HISTORY AND MANY PEOPLE DON'T REALIZE IT. EVERYTHING FROM THE CONFEDERATE CAMP DURING THE CIVIL WAR AT THE RAILROAD TRACKS AT THE SAN JANCTIO RIVER TO THE INDIANS THAT LIVED ALL AROUND THE AREA. SO IF THERE IS A GHOST STORY TO BE TOLD IT WOULD NOT BE HARD TO COME UP WITH ONE.

Some friends that I have known for years and years have been living in that house for a long time and still live there and they have NEVER had anything strange happen there. They say it was all a hoax for those people to get out of their morgage. Not one thing has happened since they have lived there nor to their neighbors. Not true. They always joke, "We live in the haunted house that the book and movie were about" that is not really haunted in the least.

There are spirits and because they are not active now does not mean that all those people were lying. To say they came up with the story to get out of a mortgage is crazy. Would you want to make a large down payment and monthly payments on a home just to walk away?  Do not forget these men had good paying jobs and were paying their bills with no problem. They walked away because they could not afford 2 mortgages and they would not have wanted to have another family move in these homes. I have a friend who bought a haunted house and after remodeling and waiting for things to get better, he sold it for 10 dollars and lost his down payment and all the money and work he invested in it and yes he told the buyer all about the ghosts. The new owner was there a little over 1 year and the place has been empty for years and is in bad condition again. Just hope they are not disturbed again and become active. Then again you might not want to call everyone dishonest about these things.

Maybe the spirits calmed down after they were discovered & either moved or put back undisturbed. You never know. If that many claimed the hauntings there is probably something too it. I having been searching for a family cememtery on private property in crosby, texas. I was never a gate on someones land once belonged to the Hollbrooks I believe & definitly the Kingsbury's. It has only a few graves, if anyone knows of its whereabouts I would greatly appreciate the info. I can be found at bigmamafolk@hotmail.com I still have some friends & family in Crosby but they haven't been able to help on this. Please help if you can. Someone suggested the house was forsale in 2003 & they didn't buy because of seeing the small grave yard, it creeped them out. The graves would likely say Kingsbury on them. Again appreciate all help. Thanks Good luck with all your haunting stories, they are fascinating. PS: I heard one person claimed hand prints on the gargage doors many times after they would open by themselves. I think this event was all over the news, so you could check the archives.

Anyone who could help me narrow down which house or houses I should look at on the east end of Poppets Way I would grateful and if someone could give me better information the location of the Sims Cemetery too please. The Study of paranormal activities is a passion of mine. I have no intentions of disturbing the neighobrhood just curious to see the homes from the street and would like to walk the cemetery. Now on the other hand if anyone has issues with their home that lives there and would like me come by to share their stories with me or have me investigate that would awesome too. Not to fear I am no quack and come with excellent references to my character... Please feel free to email and in no way obligated to do anything else if you do email me, my email is: GalvestonPD8165@att.net

I (even though I might regret this) can show you the location to what I have seen if you haven't found it yet, and if not, I know of other places in Crosby, Texas that are as well haunted.

We have lived in Newport Subdivision since 1999.  Since we moved in there have been many strange things happening in our house.  We have had lights come on by themselves, strange noises, heard people talking, sometimes you can understand them others just odd sounds. From one day to the next, objects of all sizes can be found in different places than they were the day before. One night a few years back while working out of town my wife called me complaining of a strange light coming out of the bedroom closet.  The next night she claimed to see the figure of a young girl at the foot of the bed.  During this period our dogs would not enter the master bedroom at all.  Our cats would stand on the bed growling at things we could not see.  This went on for months.  The TV in our front room would come on by itself and it is an old model that has a turn knob.  We have friends that refuse to stay in that room.  Recently we were watching a movie and towards the end we heard a sound that seemed to shake the whole house, and every hair on my body stood straight up.  I backed up the DVD serveral times to see if the noise came from it but it didn't.  Then I went from room to room looking for anything to explain it.  Last Sunday I woke up and sat on the couch only to have a coral snake sticking its head out of my couch rubbing my leg.  I do believe this neighborhood to be haunted.  My house is in the north side of the subdivision at least a mile away from Poppets Way.  Whatever is in the house does not appear to be harmful and we've just gotten use to living with IT.  My wife's grandmother passed away five years ago and everyone believes she is still at the house with us, as do I.  Many of these occurred before she passed and have slowed since.  We believe she helps to protect us and the house because she picked this house and would accept no other one but this one, maybe she knew something after all.   She was 91 when she passed.  Her ashes are in the room with the intermittin TV coming on if they are moved we suffer severe nightmares and night terrors.  It was her favorite room in the house so her ashes will remain in that room as long as we live there.

I can't bring myself to believe a neighborhood that large is ALL haunted. If you do your research you'll learn the Cemetery is located under Section 8, Poppets way seemed to be the center of it all because they actually unearthed bodies and disrupted the spirits. They House is currently occupied, you can search the address online and see the tax records. I also live in the area (for the record) as far as I've read with EXTREME amounts of research is that there is VERY LITTLE activity in the area currently. Nothing like a little ghost story to get everyone riled up, if you look for something chances are your mind is going to trick you into finding it. Please do more research on the subject, it really does have a lot to it and things aren't as ridiculous as people tend to make them out to be.

When I look up 803 Poppets Way I can't find it. Google is showing 812 Poppets Way.

 I stayed with a cousin for a while on Harpings Way in Newport about 4 years ago. It was pretty creepy there. Not really much happening just a creepy feeling about the whole place. Even just driving through there and this was before I even had heard about all the stuff that is said to happen on Poppets Way. The only thing that did happen to us was early one morning (it was still dark) like around 5 or so I think I was getting up to take my husband to work and we were confronted by a huge wolf. I have been told it was probably a coyote, but I don't think so. It was huge and was growling at us. It was foaming at the mouth and was just pure evil looking. I was really scared and we got in the car fast and left. It freaked me out and we left a few months after that.I don't like to go down there much.

My husband and I live in Section 8 in Newport. I never have been a believer in supernatural events, but after living there, I am not so sure. Unexplained things have happened in the house, and we even had a paranormal research company investigate. They informed me that I had at least two spirits there, but they were not bad spirits, and were actually protective of me. However, they did not like my husband. When he and I got married two and a half years ago and he moved into my house, that is when all the weird things started going on. If there is anyone who would like to discuss this, please email me at Moonray630@aol.com .

I use to live in Newport, my mom still lives there on Dorsal Way. I use to have a friend who use to live on Poppets Way on Park Dr. One day, he took me into the woods, and it seemed perfectly fine. I always get these feelings when I feel a presence around me, and I got nothing. We decided to go farther until we came up to a dirt path with a what looked like a broken gate. I went through it, as he backed away and went home. I continued to walk through this path until I came up to a small grave with a fence around it. As scary as it seemed, I continued my walk. I could not tell you how many hours I lingered in those woods, but I saw some pretty crazy things in there. Something that actually made me NEVER want to go into those woods again! It felt like the woods were alive, and they were shifting on me. As an explorer, I know to mark my trails so I can find my way back out, I did this and I could not find my marks. Not even the one I did just a few moments ago before deciding to turn around. I don't know much about the houses, but yes, those woods are haunted.

Hi Spelling, this is GhostHunter42 and I was reading the thread and I was wanting to know if I could meet with you and get your story and maybe you could show me around the forest where the cemetery is at.  Or just point me in the general direction of where the cemetery is at and I would take it from there.  I am a Paranormal Investigator and I have a group of folks who come with me to check out hauntings.  We take pictures and record EVP's, we have the utmost respect for the enviroment and it's surrounding.  And we will not be antagonizing the spirits there to get a response from them.  I look forward in speaking with you and thank you for your time.  Sam.

I watched the movie and I think that it is very interesting,I wanted to look up and read more about it and the family that lived there. But so many people are on here commenting so many different things about the house how do you know what is true and what isnt. if all the people live in that house that the people on here say they do then it must be a pretty full house and then you got people saying that nobody lives there and nobody has for years so how do you know who to believe.

I know the lady who used to live in that house and started digging that swimming pool.The person who said they made up the story to get out of the mortgage is an idiot and doesn't know what he's talking about. I want to issue a challenge to any and all to do an overnight investigation of any homes that people will allow us to investigate and the haunted woods around Simms Cemetary.

My son and I were in the area one morning about 2am and we witnessed a shadow walk from one side of a bridge to the other and disappear. The bridge is located on the east end of diamondhead just before the canal. That's one reason I believe the whole area to be haunted. You have to understand something about hauntings. Most likely, since the area was a slave plantation, The land and not the stuctures are haunted. If someone disrupts their restful sleep, then the structure where the disruption occurred can be haunted. tear down the structure and the haunting ceases,rebuild and the replacement structure can be haunted. That doesn't mean that the haunting of the area ceases.The intity can attach itself to any other occurance of disruption. Beware and don't take hauntings lightly. When going on the hunt,TAKE YOUR FATH IN GOD AND NEVER WAIVER....Pastor Dave

All of Newport is Haunted especially in section 10 near boathook which if you walk behind boat hook you can take a path close to the poppets way.  I know I lived in that neighborhood and the curse still continues. I and all my family still endure apparations sounds and movements. I am apart of one of the biggest paranormal teams in texas and have been all over the united states all because that house I lived in has never left nor will never let me go. I have helped alot clients to come to realize what is out there and what you should not do to provoke or play with these things. So please gawkers or ghost hunter want to be's do not again I warn do not attempt to search in newport because its like playing with fire trust me I know I have been burned many times.

I lived in Section 10 in Newport for years and experienced all the things talked about here. Nothing seeming harmful, but it was real.

I have lived in newport for 7 years. Not on poppets way but the other side of newport, and i know for sure that my house is haunted. I hear footsteps when i'm alone in the house. Loud crashing noises but can't find that anything has fallen. Many things have flown off of shelves. I have woken up to voices that seem very close to me but no ones in the room. I now have a 3 year old who has night terrors almost every night. There is just a very negative vibe in this house. I hate living here.

<- same person from last post that has lived here 7 years) i've also seen many shadows or black figures, most of them recently. Something very strange about my room is i always seem to get poked or my hair pulled or knocked off balance in the exact same spot. When i first moved in me my sister and my best friend were alone, they were in the dining room and i was getting out of the shower when i heard a loud knocking on the bathroom window and at the exact same time the lights in the dining room went off then back on. Also one night while sitting outside my sister and i heard the most strangest, loud unexplainable noise i've ever heard in my life..sort of a mix between growling, crying and screaming from things surrounding our yard. Hard to explain but these are just a few of my many weird experiences.

I rented a house in Newport and I had many weird things that I could not explain happen in that house. It got so bad that I had the house blessed. It help for a little bit but things just started back up. We seen figures of children, and a woman walking around at night in my bedroom. Doors would open and close by themselves, there would be banging on the walls so loud it felt like the whole house was shaking. It got so bad that we had to move out.. I think the whole subdivision is haunted.

My sister lives on the far east side of Crosby. Whenever I am there I feel such a sadness and grieving, I feel it all over the wooded area she lives in. It is such a heavy feeling that it prompted me to look up Crosby History, and I knew nothing about Crosby, finding all this information and all I have read, confirms all I feel when I am there.

My sister lives on the east side of Crosby. Whenever I am there I feel such a sadness and unrestfulness. Not just on her property but the entire area she lives in. This feeling that I have is what prompted me to look up Crosby History and I found this site. This explains and confirms of the feeling I have always felt in her area and the woods these properties are in. WOW

update, now going on living on poppets way for 13 years now. since mu last comment about exploring the woods and the cold spots witnessed, and many hours of research. i've learned a lot. the poltergeist, that is the one the movie is made after is not 803, but 803 did have some things happen. most of those house are built on top of the cemetery, my house just sits about 100ft from the edge, but i did meet a witness, who watched the  construction of that area who informed me that my house is on top of the cemetery.  
about 5 years ago, the owners daughter inlaw committed suicide in that house, i know this because they knocked on my door wanting me to haul off the bloody mattress in my truck.
the woods everyone seems to talk about, was where the freed slaves built a small community. they had many homes, school, a store and a church.the church sat on the edge of the cemetery. there was a fire and many homes burned down. i use to go out there and collect relics and old stopper top bottles, did this for many years without thinking twice about it. recently, things are happening in the woods i can't really describe, inter wishing, bad vibes, i don't know, but i always trust my instincts and i no longer go out there after years of exploring them.something bad happened out there, something that has been erased from history and it doesn't seem to be going away, if anything, it seems to be building up. this thing is far from being over. if anyone wants answers to unanswered questions feel free to email me. i see alot of post,posted that aren't true or they are really reaching. i've talked to a lot of neighbors and they all have stories to tell. i'm still living on poppets way and have given tours and passed on stories to others, my email address is, snakebite2@comcast.net,

My ancestors were connected to the Penns, Huffmans, Faulks, Whites, Singletons, McKinneys and others.  I am looking for an old cemetery in Crosby called the Penn Cemetery.  There are several reports as to the location but I have not been able to find it.  Now I've read it is close to the Mercer McKinney grave.  Can anyone tell me where that is located?  My ancestors were the Singletons.  Spyars Singleton was married to Martha Penn.  Others members of the family were David Penn, his wife and two sons both worked for the Electric Company who ran the rail cars in downtown Houston in the early 1920s.

I lived at 922 Poppets Way(rent house)for about 2 years, when I had my new baby daughter and brought her home from the hospital to that house... My new baby & I lived there  an additional year, until she was a year old. We then bought a house on Broken Back Dr in section 10 of Newport... 13 years later, My daughter attempted suicide, and was almost dead when I found her...I've always wondered if the Poppets Way hm had anything to do with that? Probably not, but its always been a slight question.
