The Most Haunted Places in the United States

The dead are supposed to remain dead, but some spirits apparently didn’t get the memo. While Europe may have a virtual monopoly on haunted castles, that doesn’t mean the ghosts in America don’t exist. Here are the most haunted places in the country.

Gettysburg, Pennsylvania

Most people have heard of this place because of the historic battle in 1863 where President Lincoln delivered his famous speech. But just about every resident in the area as well as many visitors agree that no list of haunted places in the US will be complete without Gettysburg.

It was the scene of one of the bloodiest battles in American history. The battle lasted for three days, and as many as 50,000 young soldiers perished here before their time. It is said that spirits of several of these soldiers have taken to roaming the battlefield searching for their comrades. Their screams and moans can still be heard by visitors, and sometimes late at night the blasts of cannon and gunfire can shatter the calm of the night.

For many visitors searching for ghosts, a good place to start here is the rock formation known as Devils Den. This is where scores of bodies and severed limbs were discovered after the war.

The Myrtles Plantation in St Francisville, Louisiana

The Myrtles Plantation is the estate built by General David Bradford in 1796, who didn’t quite care that they were building over an ancient First Nations burial ground. According to lore, the site has seen ten deaths, and some of the spirits of the dead still linger.

Perhaps the most famous is Chloe, who legend says had her ear cut off for eavesdropping by her master. She attempted to get her revenge by poisoning a birthday cake, which subsequently killed two of the master’s daughters. Her fellow slaves hanged her to death, but her spirit still roams the area wearing a turban to hide her severed ear. The spirits of the murdered children have also been seen in the veranda.

Guests here have seen ghostly apparitions, while strange hand prints may sometimes appear in mirrors. Other guests have also reported hearing invisible children laughing while pianos played by themselves. And some guests have also been dragged from their beds.

The Whaley House

Regis Philbin visited the Whaley House in 1964, and afterwards said that “There was something going on in that house.” He wasn’t alone in saying that, because back in the 1960s government officials from the US Commerce Department actually classified the Whaley House as haunted.

The house was built in 1856 by James Whaley on what used to be the first public gallows in San Diego. James Whaley later claimed that the spirit of “Yankee” Jim Robinson, a drifter and thief who was executed there in 1852, lives in the house. He can be heard walking in the halls, opening and closing doors, and making chandeliers and chairs rock.

James Whaley’s daughter committed suicide there, and many guests believe that her presence is causing the great sadness that many people feel when they visit. Some have even reported seeing a young lady in a long dress lounging in the dining area.

James Whaley and his wife also didn’t seem to want to leave, as their presence may also be noted by the scent of cigar smoke and perfume.

If you ever find yourself in any of these places, you may also be reluctant to leave if you’re hunting for ghosts. Don’t say we didn’t warn you.
