    Nothing from new orleans?

    • Sounds like you might have a suggestion. Any places you have visited?

    • Hey Seth… The Myrtles Plantation (St. Francisville, Louisiana), Witches Den (New Orleans), and Hangman’s Tree (New Orleans) were close considerations. But, I felt there were more frequent and credible accounts / proof of paranormal activity from the locations on the list.

        I think you should take a few days up here in Estes Park, Colorado Brian. I seriously can’t imagine you would actually forget The Stanley Hotel…

      Eastern State Pen is overrated, been there 5 times, 3 of them private investigations. Want some place with activity in that area I would head to Fort Mifflin, never left that place without something to talk about.

    Good Article,
    It is interesting that you spent some time in Waverly Hills. There are also many reported haunted locations in other countries around the world. The first one that comes to mind is Poveglia Island in northern Italy. The show Ghost Adventures went there and the main guy claimed that he was possessed. It was an interesting show, and if you beleive in ghosts it is something to check. out. My personal opinion is probably fiction, but fun to watch. Especially around Halloween time.

    The White House…Many credible people have seen Lincoln and others

    Haunted places. All American? Maybe the title needs to be changed.

    I am the biggest chicken ever when it comes to ghosts, the paranormal or even UFOs, but when I see an article like this I can’t stop myself from reading.
    The last building truly looks like the scariest one it only makes it more believable that you have been there yourself. Why do you “think” you saw an apparition? If there were other people there with you, don’t you all agree in what you saw?

    • It really is a truly scary place, even in the daytime. I used — “thought” we saw ghostly apparitions several times — because there really wasn’t firm proof. None of us had a video camera (they were a lot more expensive back then) and I can’t say that any of us ever even took a camera. There were certainly times that one or more of us (I was never brave enough to go there alone) saw the same thing, but when we did see something especially spooky – we usually all took off running in different directions and got out of there as fast as we could.

      This place has been visited by the TV show Ghost Hunters a few times. And, on one particular episode there is what appears to be the shadow of 1/2 a person moving at the end of the hallway. (And, there was no living person at that location during that time.) That is reportedly a very common sighting at Waverly and we saw pretty much that same exact thing more than once. There is another story of a ball appearing and moving around all by itself. Not sure how they got there, but we found old basketballs on the third floor on several occasions. And, sure enough, many times they would start rolling around all by themselves. Now, the building was wide open with no windows (broken long ago) and there certainly “could” have been wind. But, when you’re standing 10 feet from a basketball on the ground, in the dark, in a creepy old place, and it starts rolling all by itself – you really don’t think it is the wind. There were other instances of doors slamming shut, items (old medical equipment, etc.) moving on their own and things like that. Can I 100% say that any of this was caused by a ghost / spirit – No. But, it certainly seemed that way at the time.

    Yeah I can guarantee that for the first one, the “moss brewery”, that when “wine bottles get moved around with no one accountable” thats nothing more than the staff helping themselves. I’ve worked in restaurants for 4 years and, uh, if wine mysteriously being “misplaced” is signs of ghosts, then every place I’ve worked for is haunted.

    Waverly Hills is amazing, although not abandoned right now!(its a haunted house). I Just came back from a trip to Louisville and visited Waverly while I was there. If your close to Louisville you should also check out Baxter Ave Morgue!

    Regarding Moss Beach Distillery, you can look up the episode of Ghost Hunters in which the management was caught in the lie and admitted to rigging the place to make it look haunted.

  • LeGivorden

    Nice article. Most of the places listed are good spots to investigate. How ever your listing the Moss Beach Distillery is your only flub. The place was proven to be rigged by the owners for publicity by TAPS. Trick lighting fixtures in the bar are rigged to move, hidden speakers through out the building to make weird noises and play sounds of a phantom party, and at least one bathroom mirror is rigged with a mask behind it to freak people out in making them think that they seem a face in the mirror. Given all of this the Lady in blue story is questionable at best with little to know documentation to back up the story.

    I live in Deadwood, SD…and I must say, the Bullock Hotel is a very haunted location. Visit for yourself and you will experience some amazing things. It’s not just the Bullock, the whole of main street’s old buildings, and the opium dens underneath the town are incredibly haunted locations.

    I’m surprised you left the BIrdcage Theater in Tombstone, AZ out. You can feel the spirits in there the minute you walk in the door. It’s been on TV and has been called “Ground Zero for hauntings in America.”
