Ghosts of Fort Washita

This is an abandoned fort in S. Oklahoma.   I used to live near there, and even though I've never been there for the Civil War re-enactments they hold every year, I always get a creepy feeling when traveling the highway that passes it.   The fort is open several days a week for visitors, but doubt I'll ever go.

It practically seems like just about every very old fort/inn/prison/psychiatric hospital/battlefield/etcetera is haunted after following this stuff for years. 

I'm beginning to think it is almost to be expected in places where a long history of emotional events have  occurred.

I just like the pictures and history, tbh, of these old forts. The Citadel in Nova Scotia was one of my favorites to get to see and walk around. I had an old sweatshirt from there for years and years and was sad when it finally died :(

Yes you are right, it is commonplace for there to be hauntings in places that have a lot of emotional history tied to them.
