Friday Reads: The Demon of Brownsville Road

Dr. Stanley has a personal connection to today's Friday Reads feature! Read on to learn more about The Demon of Brownsville Road: A Pittsburgh Family’s Battle with Evil in Their Home by Bob Cranmer and Erica Manfred.

David Stanley with The Demon of Brownsville Road

Coming from a family who has lived on Brownsville Road for 4 generations I was familiar with the house that inspired the book. Growing up there were rumors of at least one haunted house on Brownsville Road; however, it was not the one that is talked about here. Being familiar with the Pittsburgh political scene I am familiar with Bob Cranmer but did not know that he lived just a few blocks away. Not being a true believer in hauntings, ghosts, etc., I wanted to see what was happening at the house that was always one of the better-kept in the area. It was fun to try to decipher a lot of the areas and people alluded to in the book. I still see the house quite often but now I slow down and look for specters in the windows!
