America is known as the land of opportunity. Millions of people live here across the vast expanse of the country. However, not many people know that there are opportunities to get spooked as well. Large parts of America were relatively unknown to the rest of the world till the fifteenth century, so there are many places which really evoke a ghostly feeling. If suspense and mystery are your hobbies, these are the places to be! In this article, we will talk about four such places which are considered to be haunted.
The Stanley Hotel, Estes Park, Colorado
The Stanley Hotel is a hub of paranormal activity. Whether it is weird noises appearing to come from nowhere, ghostly figures sighted in different rooms or just strange paranormal activity like a ball of lightning, visitors have described many haunting experiences that they had during their stay here. Sometimes visitors hear noises of children but when they actually go and check they see nothing and the noises stop. There is even a room where a piano is kept and visitors have reported to have heard music being played but some have claimed that the keys move by themselves.
West Virginia State Penitentiary
The mere mention of a prison can sound spooky to many people. Empty cells behind rods, narrow passages and thick walls make up for a very haunting feeling. However, in case of West Virginia State Penitentiary, that’s not all. It is a very old prison. Not only are there historical records of certain disturbing events that have taken place here, but also the visitors themselves have described sightings and noises which are spooky.
