What Famous Haunted Place Have You Visited?
#41
I'm lucky enough to live in WV, which is geographically an ideal location for access to many of those famous haunted hot spots that continually get cited in different articles and on different websites as being the best of the best.

West Virginia's two biggies that always seem to make all of those most haunted lists are The West Virginia State Penitentiary at Moundsville and the Trans-Allegheny Lunatic Asylum in Weston. I have mixed feelings about TALA, but am a firm believer that there are some strange things going on with the penitentiary. It wasn't necessarily the most active place I've investigated, but it was one of the most profound experiences.

I've also had the pleasure of either visiting or investigating several other area 'famous' locations, such as Waverly Hills, Gettysburg, Prospect Place, Bobby Mackey's, and Mansfield Reformatory. A note on Bobby Mackey's--It seems like when it comes to this place, there are two types of groups: 1. Those who find absolutely nothing and 2. Those who hit the 'demonic' mother lode. We fell into the first category, lol. We found nothing but a bunch of stories we were able to debunk, false history, and plenty of audio that had to be thrown out because our host invited some friends over to help pass the time.

Have you ever visited one of those "famous" haunted places?

I've been to the Myrtles a number of times but never actually caught anything on camera.

I had 1 old photo that might have contained a face or reflection in a darkened window but have lost the pic.

Much of what I saw posted about Louisiana or Baton Rouge in The Shadowlands , I have never heard about. I do not have a good opinion of The Shadowlands.

USS Constitution in Boston. I never really thought about it as I had heard rumors but never read anything about it being haunted. Tonight it was on one of the ghost hunting programs that I watched because nothing else was on. I didn't experience anything paranormal while I was there. Our housemate Tracy claims the orb on one photo must have been something, but I'm convinced it was moisture as it was drizzling slightly while we were there.

Subject: I have a black cat.
Believer: Black cats are bad luck.
Non-believer: It's just a cat.
Crackpot: Black cats are part of the New World Order government conspiracy.
Skeptic: I can test if black cats are more or less lucky than another cat.
Cynic: You only have a black cat to gain power and prestige.

The Edinburgh Vaults where I had the only frightening paranormal experience of my life. Also Mary King's Close (nothing happened) and the Covenanter's Prison in Greyfriar Cemetary (home of the Mackenzie Poltergeist) where once again nothing happened.
What's that in the mirror, or the corner of your eye, what's that footstep following, but never passing by

I'm originally from Pennsylvania, but I attended school at the College of William and Mary in Williamsburg, VA. I'm not sure how many of you are familiar with the campus, but its the second oldest college in the USA, chartered in 1693. I HIGHLY recommend checking out what I believe is the schools oldest hall, Wren. I had several classes in this building, and I always felt a strange sense of a presence in this building along with unexplained noises. This building must date back to the 1700s and many famous Americans walked through the halls including Thomas Jefferson.

Many also come to this town to visit the preserved colonial buildings within and outside of the campus, which are renovated and open to the public. I recently went back to visit and attended the Colonial Ghosts tour. First of all, colonial Williamsburg at night makes the perfect setting for a ghost walk. Unlike other ghost tours, Williamsburg still very much looks like the town it was hundreds of years ago. Not to mention, the impersonators that walk through the streets. When walking through the old steam tunnel grate, many of us overheard a strange laughter coming from beneath us. I also enjoyed our tour of the old jail, where Blackbeard's pirate crew awaited trial.

So for ghost lovers out there like me looking for some creepy places to explore, check out Williamsburg. Plenty of creepy old buildings with a lot of history.

I've been to Gettysburg a few times and every time I've had an experience or taken a picture with "someone" in it. I've heard male voices and a cry to "FIRE" followed by faint echoing popping sounds or gunfire at the Solider's National Cemetery. I've experienced the cigar odor at Little Round Top. Heard male voices in my hotel room at night. And also have a couple of pictures where in the distance what appear to be shadowy figures can be made out.

I've never experienced anything paranormal at any of these locations, though.

That sounds just like my investigations. I've never obtained anything I couldn't debunk. One time when I was in a cemetery with a friend, I took some pictures and looked at them later. When I was looking at this one, which was aimed at the treetops, with the ground barely below the bottom of the picture, I about shat bricks when I saw this subtle silhouette of a figure, with a subtle face. I enhanced the picture, and it turned out just to be my friend lol.

I didn't think Gettysburg was under any jurisdiction of the DoD and instead was part of the National Parks system of the Department of the Interior.
