The Most Haunted Places In The United States

October 6th, 2013 by in Featured with 6,954 Views

Now that it’s getting close to Halloween and people are getting excited to go to haunted houses and haunted hayrides, why not consider going to an actual haunted place? Although the United States has not been inhabited quite as long as other countries in Europe, there are still many places that are considered to be haunted.

Moundsville Penitentiary in Moundsville, West Virginia

This prison opened in 1876 and was built to house 480 prisoners at the time but by the 1930’s it was over capacity at 2,400 inmates. As a result of multiple people sharing each 5 by 7 room, in 1986 it was deemed cruel and unusual punishment for these prisoners and the prison eventually closed in 1995.

This prison has a very violent history as it is where all the states executions were performed. 85 men were hung at this prison and 9 were electrocuted. Hundreds more died of either murder, suicide or violent punishments such as whips.

It is said that due to its violent past and 2 violent riots in its history that there are many “hot spots” associated in this prison. The main areas it has been said to have a lot of paranormal activity includes the Sugar Shack, the chapel, Death Row, and the shower cages. Noises have been heard, shadows have been seen and cages have been seen turning mysteriously on its own.

This prison offers many tours that are available to the public.  Not only is it open during the day but you can also go experience it during the night for several hours.  This includes a guided tour and then a self guided tour. If you are looking for more information about this prison, here is a direct link to their website http://www.wvpentours.com/index.htm

    All places look so weird no doubt about that. But I would
    like to visit that Weston State Hospital at West Virginia. It looks terrific. Though
    I don’t believe in any kind of so called paranormal activities, but a night
    stay in that Hotel would be exciting.

    I’m sure more places from New Orleans could make the cut. It would be interesting to see how many outdoor places could be on the list too, especially cemeteries.
