Haunted USA (or wherever you might live)
 Haunted USA (or wherever you might live) Photo
This is Waverly Hills Sanitarium in Louisville, KY.  It is widely considered to be one of the most haunted buildings in the United States.  I'm considering a haunted tour, if I can find some brave soul who would be willing to have their socks scared off with me.  

Over 64,000 people died of tuberculosis here.  Among the disembodied inhabitants of this building are a little girl who plays hide & seek with visitors, a little boy named Timmy who loves to play with a leather ball, and a nurse who hanged herself in room 502 after it was discovered she was pregnant from an affair she had with one of the doctors.  Another nurse jumped to her death out the window of room 502.  No one knows why she felt she had to take her own life.

the house I own has two spirits.  One is the son of the family who used to live here - he was a friend of my husbands in their youth.  He was bipolar as a youngster and took his own life in our front yard, back when the family lived here.  His mother often makes her presence known as well, I have always thought protecting him in some way.

And don't ask me how I know who it is, I just do

 I have a friend who lived in an apartment building that was built in the late 1800's/early 1900's.  At some time, the building caught fire and three men died.  The building was structurally ok after the fire, so it was refurbished.  There was a washer and dryer in the basement for tenant's use, but the basement was unfinished and poorly lit...just one light bulb hanging loosely from the ceiling.  Every time I tried to go into the basement, I felt an overwhelming feeling of something stopping me at the door.  I never could go in, either by myself or otherwise.  I can't put my finger on it, but two of the men died in the basement.

 The third man who died, actually died in my friend's apartment at the time of the fire.  We called him "Felix."  Felix liked to play tricks on us.  He'd move my keys or my purse from one room to another.  If I came in the front door, I'd leave my stuff in the foyer.  If I came in the back door, I'd leave my stuff in the kitchen.  Often, my belongings would end up in the room opposite from where I came in.  I used to smoke cigarettes if I'd been out drinking or if I was hung over.  One particular morning, I was awake before everyone else in the apartment.  I slept on the couch and I played solitaire while sitting on the floor.  I had a cigarette in the ashtray, which was in the middle of a large coffee table.  It was about 18" from the side of the table.  I'd turn around to get my cigarette, only to find it sitting on it's butt end on the very edge of the coffee table.  Felix never really scared me per se.  He seemed much more friendly and prankish.

I have a perrenial plant in the front yard and every year it forms in a ring rather than as a bush.  It starts as a bush, then the day after the anniversary of Eric's death, the centre of it is gone.  His mother, Emily, will make my wind chimes (inside) chime in the middle of the night.  Where they hang there is no breeze, no wind, no possible way for them to move without someone moving them, but often I'll wake up to hear them.  I've moved them several times - they are decorative little hummingbird things, not meant to be outside.  No matter where I hang them, they only chime when Emily wants them to.

Big big chicken when it comes to ghost. So pretty much every house I have lived in for the last 22 years has had some sort of activity. None of it has been consistent, but always seems to be at least one incident in each place. From genealogy books being opened and laid on the floor(this happened 3 nights in a row) to my name being written(backward) in the steam on a bathroom mirror. From time to time I hear sounds, smell pipe tobacco(the kind my grandfather smoked), have lights mysteriously turn on or off.

When I was in High School, we lived in a house that someone had turned the attic into a apartment. This was my room, I was at home alone one weekend. I had been outside shooting hoops, when I decided it was getting dark and I was going to go in and make dinner. I went in and started cooking, when I finished, I went into the dining room. This is where the stairs to my room were, I noticed that the touch lamp at the top of the stairs was on. Damn I don't remember leaving that on, I thought, I sat down and had dinner. After dinner I decided to go up stairs and watch TV. As I stepped on the bottom step the light turned off, I thought that maybe the cat had rubbed up against the lamp and turned it on and off, only to discover that the cat was on the stairs beside me. I continued to climb the stairs, about half way up, I heard a voice say "Get Out." Needless to say, being the chicken I am, I listened to the voice's advice, at least for that weekend. I also refused to stay in that house by myself again.

The Haunt:
It began as a simple debut performance of a musical play.  It ended in unexpected death, disappointment, and a determination to resolve some unfinished business.  -- Even if it must be resolved from beyond the grave.

I have a house about 3 blocks or so form me that is an historical home and can never be torn down. It is said to have been used back in the slavery days and they have underground tunnels that led to a river. It is said you can still hear the horses and the wagons moving along. I would love to go and visit any haunted site.

The house I currently live in had a spirit living in it.  Legend has it our house was built on the land that housed the servant/slave quarters for a 1.5 million acre farm.  The mansion is about 1/2 mile away.  One of the servants, named James, used to roam the area.  People would see a lantern running through the woods.  James would pay us visits randomly.  He has turned on the microwave, coffee pot, lights.  Things have been moved.  This was very common until 1/30/01.  That night a tornado came through our area.  7 people were killed that night within 1/2 mile of our home.  Our house was badly damaged along with the mansion across the road.  Since that night, James has not been around.  We think James was blown away by the tornado. 

I also lived in Santa Fe, New Mexico.  We had several buildings that were haunted.  And I have encountered odd occurances there.

Savannah, Ga and Charlestown, SC have great Spector Tours that show you many "interesting" and unexplained happenings.  Take the tour.  Also tour Alcatraz.  Great feelings in that place.

Place here called Tut Hill and at the end of the lane is an old 2 story mansion.  A mysterious light eminates fromt he second floor, although the house has not been occupied for years.  During Halloween, we would go visit the house on Tut Hill and watch the light go back and forth thru the second story.  Local legend says that the light or lantern is being carried by the owner of the mansion, looking for his wife who disappeared one night close to Halloween.

I live in Connecticut, USA New England regions most of the houses I live by the area are full of historical periods back in the late 1700's to early 1900's my house was built in late 1897 pretty neat too. I have had 3 present spirits at the time, most disturbing case was a man in the attic to my bedroom, a woman in the hallway was very  protective she goes next door, and a boy stayed down the family room to the kitchen. He was the light of the spirit  only appears in the day time. When my family moved in this very nice house in May 2007, strange things started to happen in the summer time around July to Sept 2007. We felt strong presence of the spirit from the attic to my bed room and when it usually comes out after 3 am to 4:30am, there be cold spots and voice contacts not to mentioned the behaviour sudden comes along anger was one of strangest thing. We have had strong noises and I had to acknowledge a male spirit  who happened to be a circus performer  there was a history content of the Big Circus fire of Ringling Brothers  in Hartford Connecticut on July 1944. This man was very angry because the fire appeared to be an arson and alot of young children and adults have died quickly. The man tried to save them was very hopeless. The boy had an accident died from fallen down the stairs he was 6 yrs old, was very protective he always stays down the family room and plays with my cat Maria . The boy  will warned one of us he will tag our hand or leg, not to go upstairs until a woman appears to stop the man from the attic going to my room alot things happened in my house we had lights flickered on and off  my phone and  my computer  goes off. My bed room closet door has been opened several times my cat Maria used to sleep with me til she sensed a spirit approached to my bedroom she used to go around the circle on my bed and hissed at it . We heard circus music, screams, even smelled of strong gas and burnt fire nothing like this in our lives we actually believed in paranormal does exists for two years next door resident we had two different families moved out twice and it was very strange, both families have left  in Sept  2007 and 2008. As I stayed my side of the house, I decided to contact paranormal investigators and did research about the house and what my family had seen was very true and it was bloody mad we couldn't sleep for two years with this craziness presences of the 3 spirits. Last summer on August 2009, I had it  my bedroom felt like its plagued  it was like a warning  I slept down the family room and it was getting intensed  we had this strange vibrations that can freak you out the entire night I guess the man was very upset so I decided to face the man spirit to let him know it was time  to go that the house is now ours. I called the investigators  there was an updated to do a final contact and  have the house smudged and need to bless the house for safety  was something we don't want our family to be  harm but safe two yrs experiences like this was something we learned eventho I missed these crazy activities but we NEED sleep ! lol

I never personally saw the ghost, but there's a female who haunts the upstairs of Brooks Hall up at Allegheny.  Before 1900, she was a sorority sister out on the balcony, and her boyfriend from one of the frats was climbing up the facade to propose to her, a yearly tradition.  He lost his footing and fell to his death on the bricks below.  Just witnessing the love of her life fall and die, she jumped down after him and killed herself.  Nowadays the room where she walked out onto the balcony from isn't used because that's supposedly where she still lives. In Pittsburgh there's also the famed Dicksmont mental hospital.  It was closed years ago, but was said to be haunted by patients who were put to death in the basement of the building.  When they tore it down to build a Wal-Mart, wouldn't you know the entire hillside fell onto the state highway below.  It kept sliding until the developers gave up and decided not to build the store.  I have my ideas as to why that hillside fell. ;)
