Can you believe that Halloween is two weeks away? A lot of people have been watching scary movies or preparing for costume parties all month. Whether you believe in ghost or not, several locations around the U.S. claim to be haunted. I’ve visited a few of these places. Today, I want to share with you five haunted locations in the United States.
If you’ve been following my site, you know that Savannah, GA is one of my favorite cities. I went to college at Savannah State University and ended up living in the city for nearly nine years. During my time there, I have heard a lot of stories about the city being haunted. I have even been on a ghost tour down there. I’m not 100% sure if I believe in ghost or not but, I will say that some things can’t be explained. I did see a couple of things that I couldn’t explain. Savannah is the oldest city in GA. Some of the areas that are supposedly haunted are Fort Pulaski, Bonaventure Cemetery, The Pirates House Restaurant and the Moon River Brewing Company.
New Orleans has a reputation for being a fun city to visit. That reputation is accurate, but that’s another post for another time. It has also has been labeled as one of the most haunted cities in the country. I have been to New Orleans a few times. I haven’t really seen anything too spooky. Some of the places that are considered to be haunted are St. Louis Cemetery No. 1, La Pavillon Hotel and Canal Street at City Park Avenue.
The third location on the list is Alcatraz Penitentiary. It is located in San Francisco, California. The Los Angeles Times described Alcatraz as “the most notorious federal penitentiary that the US has ever known.” Some of the well-known criminals that stayed there were Bumpy Johnson, Al Capone, and George “Machine Gun” Kelly. Alcatraz was very dangerous. There were many deaths and suicides when it was open. Many guards and officials claimed to have experienced supernatural activity. Alcatraz closed in the 1960’s. Today it is currently a museum.
St. Augustine, FL
St. Augustine is the oldest city in the state of Florida. It’s about 30-40 minutes south of Jacksonville. Some of the locations that are said to be haunted are the Spanish Military Hospital, The Old Jail, and the St. Augustine Lighthouse. You can choose from several haunted tours to check out.
Washington, D.C is another area that is reportedly haunted. Several ex-presidents such as Abraham Lincoln and Thomas Jefferson are said to haunt the White House. Some of the other locations that may be haunted are The Capitol, The Octagon House, and The National Theatre.
I’ve been to a few of these cities before. I didn’t see anything spooky in any of them except Savannah. Maybe I need to visit the others in the future to find out if I see anything that I can’t explain.
