I hear mixed things about the Myrtles. Some claim haunted, some not, and not to forget the countless shows that have been there. I personally want to visit there myself just to see!

I've visited several places. The USS Hornet, Gettysburg, West Virginia Penitentiary, Moundsville WV, and a few places not so famous.

I have never actually visited a famous haunted place. Unless you count the S.S Great Britain? That has to be the scariest ship I have every been on. Their is such a creepy/sad feeling as you visit all the different rooms. If anyone ever comes to Bristol, UK - I suggest you pay it a little visit ☺

Although I've never heard of the ship, Charlotte, it seems that it's a famous haunted place in the Bristol area and probably the rest of your country.
'A phantom,' said my Uncle Mycroft, who had just materialised, 'is essentially a heteromorphic wave pattern that gains solidity when the apparition converts thermal energy from the surroundings to visible light. It's a fascinating process and I'm amazed no one has thought of harnessing it - a holographic TV that could operate from the heat given off by an average-size guinea pig.' ~ First Among Sequels, Jasper Fforde

I wouldn't go as far as saying county, England has some insanely haunted places.

Lots of places to see. Charleston is a pretty good place. Would love to go to the Winchester House. Traveling is just so expensive which sucks. Even for short hops.

Prepare for a lot of ducking if you're over 5'-0" tall and visiting the Winchester Mystery House.

I don't know how famous it is, but by FAR the most impressive and truly undeniable ghost sighting I have ever enountered--indeed, there have been only a few, not counting conversing privately with demons--was in Johnson City, Tennessee. (Actually Mountain Home, right next door.)

It was a few years ago, I was living in Austin at the time, just finishing up grad school, and I went to the VA Hospital in Mountain Home out there for a job interview. I got there on a Friday afternoon, and the interview wasn't until Monday, so I spent the weekend in a hotel right next to the VA.

When I arrived Friday afternoon I drove out to the VA just to scope it out, and I grabbed a snack at the Canteen there, on campus. While there, I heard some vets who lived in the Domiciliary there talking about how the place is haunted! Yeah..apparently a lot of Civil War battles were fought on that area, and they claimed that ghosts of dead soldiers could be seen walking around on base at night.

Intrigued, but skeptical, I decided to check it out. I went back to the hotel, ate dinner, just hung out for awhile, watched a ballgame on TV, had a couple beers with my southern BBW dinner. I was just killing time, as I had planned to go visit the base in the wee hours, as that is the time the vets at the Canteen who told me about the ghosts said was the most optimal to see the soldiers.

I took a brief nap, set my alarm for midnight, and ended-up arriving on base around 1 a.m. I parked way out front by the main street and walked around the campus..a good size, beautiful site, by the way. Lots of trees, it is in the Smokey Mountains as I recall. So I go around to the back of the boiler plant, right on the edge of the property, near the fenceline that corridors-off a large wooded area. There is a veterans memorial cemetary a couple hundred yards away.

I only had to wait about 15 minutes before I saw the first one, then another, and then several, usually walking in groups of two or three. All together I was there waching for about half an hour and probably saw, oh, twenty or so different soldiers. It was a bit hard to make-out the uniforms, with the darkness and the hazy but bright--kinda like a reflection--images of them, but I belive they were a mix of Union and Confederate troops.

They were just slowly walking, shuffling, sort of. The word "bedraggled" comes to mind. Heads down, rifles slung across their shoulders, mostly looking at the ground. Sometimes when there were a couple together they appeared to be softly talking to each other, as I would see them turn their heads. They never really looked my way, as far as I could tell. I heard no sound, really, except for very muffled conversation, almost like a buzzing. I could not make out any intelligibile words. Exept once I tought I heard a soft chuckle. I could here some clicks and rattles of their gear, as well, like their canteens slapping on their belt buckles, or maybe a boot scuffling.

What was weird was they appeared to be walking aobut two feet off of the surface of the blacktop road. They were composed of mostly a whitish, yellowish light, but were a little transparent at times, sometimes though they looked solid. Mostly opaque, however. The closest I got to one of them, I would say was about 50 feet. To be honest, I was too scared to get any closer, though they seemed very unconcerned or even unaware of my presence. I sensed zero hostility and I believe I could have gotten much closer. I am sorry today that I did not.

When I left it stayed with me for a long time. I could not sleep at all that night, and went out for a jog the next morning and came back to the room around lunchtime, ate and hen took a nice long three or four-hour nap.

I returned the next night with a woman who was staying at the hotel, and, get this, was also there for a job interview Monday. She was from Tallahassee, FLA.

We returned at about the same time, same place, and were met with almost duplicate results, thought his time there were less of them; would say maybe half of what I saw the previous night.
