Do you have any places locally that are considered "haunted"?

Here in Erie we have the Curtze Mansion, which runs as a historical museum. Many have said it's haunted and I've had times that I've felt "weird" in there. Below is a picture.

I am in Massachusetts, usa and we have many places that have been dubbed haunted. I live not to far from the famous house of Lizzy Borden...who supposedly killed bother her parents with an ax..It is said that she still haunts the place. Check out www.lizzyborden.com for more info about her. There are also alot of cemetaries with various stories of hauntings. Many of the schools and colleges also say they are haunted. There are literally hundreds of places in just my state. If you are traveling, or live in any of The New England States you might want to check out www.hauntednewengland.com also.

I visited a huge castle in Mass that was sooooo beautiful and supposedly haunted. I cannot recall all the info, even the name, only that the man had a wharped sense of humor and created a guest room that once you were inside he wallpapered the door so you couldn't see how to get out and would put drunken guests in it for a laugh! He also had a big rain forest room that he could create storms in. It was amazing! Thanks!

Hammond Castle - Gloucester Mass.
From www.hammondcastle.org John Hays Hammond, Jr. built his medieval-style castle between the years 1926 and 1929 to serve both as his home and as a backdrop for his collection of Roman, medieval, and Renaissance artifacts. In addition, the building housed the Hammond Research Corporation, from which Dr. Hammond produced over 400 patents and the ideas for over 800 inventions. Second only to Thomas Alva Edison in number of patents, John Hammond was one of America's premier inventors. His most important work was the development of remote control via radio waves, which earned him the title, "The Father of Remote Control." Visitors to Hammond Castle Museum are welcome to explore the castle on a self-guided tour of eight rooms including the great hall, indoor courtyard, Renaissance dining room, two guest bedrooms, the inventions exhibit room, the Natalie Hays Hammond exhibit room, the tower galleries, as well as several smaller rooms and passage ways. Visitors may also enjoy the beauty of the castle grounds and a view of the Atlantic shore line. In addition to self-guided tours, Hammond Castle Museum offers a number of educational programs and prearranged tour opportunities for school and tour groups.

Hellfire Club - The Hellfire Club, Mount Pelier Hill, Dublin.  Overlooking the city of Dublin.
'Overlooking Dublin city from the south west, at an altitude of 383m (1264ft), is a ruined hunting lodge, better known as the 'Hell-Fire Club' . It is also known as the Devil’s Kitchen. Urban legend tells us that it was - and still is - a site commonly used for the practice of 'Satanism' and other occult activities, and that the Devil himself made a brief appearance there at some unspecified time in the past. Legend also has it that a mysterious stranger sought shelter on a stormy night, and a card game ensued. A member of the household dropped a card, and when he stooped to pick it up, he saw that below the table, the otherwise affable and charming visitor had a cloven hoof. His screams made the Devil 'aware of his discovery, and he at once vanished in a thunder-clap leaving a dreadful stench behind him.

i live in a picture-post card village in West Yorkshire, England and just about every building is said to be haunted. What is fascinating to me is that some of them actually are

It's just so interesting. I truly do believe that there is something out there that we call "haunting"... what it truly is I'm not sure but I do believe that it's possible.

I don't really know of many famously haunted places in London...unless you count the Royal Opera House -- there was a fire there about 10 years ago, and that's what the play Phantom Of The Opera comes from -- a duke [I think!] that went missing in the fire is said to haunt the Opera House, playing the Pipe Organs from time to time. I think it depends on your own beliefs...I personally think my own house is haunted.

I live in Toronto, and we have quite a few haunted buildings. In fact, I once did a ghost walk and talked to people about ghost sightings in some of the buildings downtown. Our Provincial parliment buildings used to be an insane asylum, and there have been numberous ghost sightings there. I used to work in the blood bank, and the building is haunted by patients from when it was a children's hospital.

I actually almost did a Ghost Walk in Toronto (London) one time!!! I couldn't make it over there on the day it was scheduled, oddly enough because of a hockey game! lol

Can't think of any offhand, but I know there are a number of them. There is also a legend in southern New Jersey of the "Jersey Devil," which is partly where the hockey team got its name. My town has a lot of bars and the young people coming out of them on Saturday nights resemble zombies, but that's another matter altogether...

Tallinn City Museum  - First mentioned 1363, now a modern museum. A ghost house.
You should come to Tallinn. There are many ghost houses in Old Town. For example, our City museum in Vene street is one of them. It's one of the oldest houses in the town, first mentioned in archives 1363. The employees have seen a so-called 'white lady'. When she passed, they felt a touch of her light vual dress. An artist, who was working late on his exhibition felt how someone breathed in his neck. Etc.

We do not have any places here considered haunted but if we did, I would be curious and want to check it out. It would not scare me a bit. I think we would have to go out of state to find a place that is haunted.

You might be surprised. Locally we have many books too, but I have to say our area is very old also. We had many wars, and quite a few years to bring in some ghostly estates! lol

We have a restaurant in Savannah called "The Pirates House" It has a tunnel running underground that goes to the Savannah River. The pirates used that to get there spoils off and on boats. Some of the employees swear they have seen ghosts at night while they are cleaning up after the guests have left. It is quite a big tourist attraction. Very authentic and the food is good.

I don't have pictures. But they do say that one of the Mansions down town is haunted. It's called the Lemp Mansion. I however don't believe in such things.

I live in London, Ontario, Canada, and the most popular haunted building is the Grand Theatre. Here is a link that gives a brief synopsis: http://www.waymarking.com/waymarks/WM3TQP I have lived here in London for 10 years now, but have never been in the Grand Theatre. I believe there are ghost tours available, and I would LOVE to attend one sometime. :D

We have loads of places around here. One is the first hospital of the city which now houses an insurance company and radio station. Another is a local remodeled hotel, The Hilton. It used to be a hotel back in the days of Huey Long, and it is reported that his ghost roams the halls there. Another local favorite is the Myrtles Plantation which is north of the city and operates as a bed and breakfast place now. They offer midnight tours during Halloween. Kinda spooky if you read too much into it!

Unfortunately there aren't any places locally that is considered by the general population as haunted. I really wish there were places like that around here. I'd love to investigate it if so.

The only haunted place that I know of where I live is a little castle (do not take it literal, it is a very bad translation of its portuguese nickname, the place has even a nick!!) and that is downtown. never been there and only heard about it, only saw it from the outside.
