If we heard the word Halloween, what comes to your mind? Halloween is where people would lit bonfires, wears costumes animating ghosts, or any and children doing trick-or-treat in every house wearing their oh so cute costumes. Aside from wearing costumes, we have these people who love to explore haunted places, houses, hospitals, and cemeteries as well. Haunted places that have different stories as to why spirits were there and roaming around.

These are some of the top most haunted places that you can explore on Halloween: 

Alaska: Whittier

A tiny town in Alaska that is unexpectedly spooky. The Buckner Building was originally built for soldiers during a nuclear attack in the Cold War. The military abandoned the building and was known for mysterious occurrences like whistling, running water, and scurrying sounds.

Whaley House, San Diego, California

This family estate was built in 1587 by Thomas Whaley and the former site of the city's public gallows. After he moved in, he reported that he could hear heavy footsteps of "Yankee" Jim Robinson, a drifter and thief who hanged himself on the site four years ago before the house was built. His family ended up in tragic deaths and suicide, which mostly occurred inside the house itself. Family members still reported the haunt landmark often accompanied by cigar smoke or a scent of heavy perfume.

Amityville Horror House

This house is located in Amityville, New York. The story itself also scares everyone on the big screen when Hollywood makes a film and portrays it as creepy as the real-life story. The site was the scene where Ronald DeFeo murdered his entire family while they're sleeping, including his parents and four siblings in 1974. The house is currently off-limits to the public.

Ohio State Reformatory

Located in Mansfield, Ohio, movie buffs and ghost hunters wants to pay a visit to this place. The former prison was rumored to be haunted by former inmates, past superintendent and his wife and the farm boss and family that is said to be murdered outside the building. This is also where The Shawshank Redemption was filmed. 

Indiana: Avon Haunted Bridge

This old bridge was reported that you can hear loud screams of people who died near the bridge at night; it includes the worker who maintained the bridge and a mother and a baby who fell on the bridge.

Mizpah Hotel, Tonopah, Nevada, 

This hotel was one of Nevada's first luxurious hotels that have opened in 1907. Fully restored in 2011, complete with solid granite walls and Victorian-era decorations. Legends say that a woman died on the fifth floor and never left the building. The "Lady in Red" was reported making her presence by whispering in men's ear and leaving pearls from her broken necklace on guests' pillows.

Haunted Places is really quite spooky if we imagine, but the saddening part is the story itself and why their spirits or presence are still there. Before going into a haunted place, we need to make sure that we are ready for what we will be seeing, or we know the story itself.
