Haunted Places where you live?

What are the most haunted and well known places in your area?

I would say the most haunted places that I have heard of is the Mudhouse Mansion, Lake Hope Tunnel and The Ridges.  There are many  places in Ohio that is haunted, but  of  what I would like to know is what is haunted in your area?


I have another place called the Sherman house, right here in downtown Lancaster.

I love me a good ghost story. My town is full of lore and one of my favourite stories is about 'Boom Hall.' I've frequently been there, it's basically a big 'ol mansion that has a grisly past.

Here's the stories: http://www.derryghosts.com/main.htm

Several of the stories on that site take place very close to me, one of them actually on my street and one at my old street too. (Moss Park, and The Old Woman)

There's a story in there about 'The Devil and the Long tower gamblers) and this girl I had a fling with once told me her grandfather was one of the gamblers.

Many people say that Burial Hill in Plymouth (USA MA) is haunted. I've also heard that the historic Spooner house and the Sun Tavern (Duxbury) are known to be haunted as well.

My village, Pluckley in Kent

The spectre of the highwayman Robert Du Bois speared to a tree at Fright Corner (Even though the tree is now gone);
The pub "The Black Horse" is haunted at night when you can hear the screams from inside of the lady of Rose Court.
A phantom coach and horses, allegedly manifesting in the vicinity of Maltman's Hill;
The ghost of a Gypsy woman who burned to death in her sleep;
The black ghost of a miller haunting the ruins of a windmill near "The Pinnocks";
The hanging body of a schoolmaster in Dicky Buss's Lane;
A colonel who hanged himself in Park Wood;
The screaming ghost of a man being smothered by a wall of clay at the brickworks;
The Lady of Rose Court (again), who is said to have eaten poisoned berries in despair over a love triangle;
The Phantom Monk of "Greystones", a house built in 1863. There is a suggestion he may have been the unrequited love object of the Lady of Rose Court;
The White Lady of Dering, a young woman apparently buried inside 7 coffins and an oak sarcophagus who haunts the churchyard of St. Nicholas's Church;
The Red Lady, reputedly an earlier member of the same ancient Dering family who also haunts St Nicholas'. The legend of the Red and White Ladies seem to overlap. A third ghost has apparently also been reported in the same place.
The Ragged Boy and the Seated Lady of Jack's Court;(my house)
The Screaming Woods (Dering Wood), an area of forest outside of town supposedly haunted by the ghosts of many who became lost in the woods. It was given its name because you can supposedly still hear their screams from inside the forest at night.

I've posted this before, so if anybody's bored with it, my apologies!

A few places where I've worked at has turned up some interesting characters, not just the living but also the undead.  In my current job, when there is some downtime, I talk with the officers on duty right by the elevator.  One time, the elevator opened by itself, well, that's not amazing in itself, however as we both turned to look, what I saw was a white blur rush into the elevator.  The officer at the time told me he saw something like white sleeves going in there.  Consequently, we just kept quiet about it, however it turns out no one can quiet remember what was here at the site of our campus beforehand so that is a bit of mystery there...

Nothing spooky near where I lived, but I've been to Pike Place Market a few times and I've heard that it's supposed to be haunted by an young Native American woman.

Nothing paranormal while I was there. The strangest thing I saw was some guy holding a up a sign that said "NEED $$$ FOR WEED"

The Leeper Mansion and Wilcox road by the RR tracks and then there's a old RR hotel that is suppose to be haunted.

If you are interested in haunted places in your state this place has a lot of listings.  They had hauntings listed for my state that I had never heard about.

There are many places where I live that are reputed to be haunted. Here is a link to three of them.

Ohio, USA here
Nearby to me are the Roseville, Prison.. apparently there is a lady ghost that haunts the grounds and the wardens house.
There is also the Clay House in Somerset that is supposedly haunted by a young girl.
Further away there is the Franklin Castle (cleveland i believe).
The place I work at in Cambridge  is also reportedly haunted by the ghosts of WWII soldiers. It used to be an hospital. There were wards upon wards. I cant even imagine some of the pain and suffering that occured there.

There is an entire series of books called haunted ohio. I think it is more geared towards the younger crowd but i still enjoy reading them.

here are pictures of the guard tower and the Roseville prison itself . I broke into it and did some exploring. Found some old encyclopedias from the fifties but no ghosts.

There's a famous cemetery I grew up near called Lottie's Grave. There's a few stories out about it but I singled it down to the fact that she was a healer at the settlement the town I lived in was before it was a town. The townspeople feared her so they either hung her and cut off her head, or just exiled her from the town and she starved to death. That's the only part I haven't figured out. Her grave is in that cemetery and it's supposed to have alot of activity. I plan to take some ghost hunting equipment out there and see what I can find.

Just take yourself ... ghost hunting equipment will just distract from the authenticity of any experiences you have.Do you really need equipment to tell you if a ghost/spirit is present?

Merchant House
Fort Hamilton
Fort Totten is seriously haunted
Calvary Cemetery

Then there's a club in Manhattan. It's a bar now.
Years ago,it was a punk club called The Lismar Lounge .
That place was seriously haunted . I wouldn't go downstairs alone,and I had no idea all the people who worked there felt the same way .

Someone told me they eventually brought in a psychic and then an exorcist ,and they tore down a wall,and there was a body walled up in it.
Yah.
Also Jimi Hendrix old apartment on East 9th street . Numerous people who've been there,have had experiences with Jimi .

Just walked thru an empty cemetery,and took random shots .
