North from where I live in Healdsburg, CA. there is a middle school which has been built a few bloccks from Oak Mound Cemetery. I havn't checked the school for hauntings myself but I've been to the cemetery a few times and It's a pretty creepy cemetery. Theres a good possibility that the school is haunted. I was at a picnic table across from the football field which is across from the cemetery and I saw a the spirit of a woman dressed in a 1800"s dress on the football field. A grey dress. She was lying down on her stomach with her head up as if she were reading or writing something.

Look up Cassadaga, Florida. Very spiritual town and there are a few old buildings there that are said to be haunted. I'm planning a trip there soon.

This isn't a building but a area that I worked when I was working in the forestry industry. While working in the woods as a crew boss for a team of tree thinners my job was to make cut lines and measure areas out for guys to thin the trees in different spots. We were at a group of lakes that is in a park that the public school board had bought for students to go and have nights out and learn about things in the forest. While marking cuts and hauling fuel it was very hot so I stopped at a lake called white Lilly. A lake where all the high school students use to go party. From going there myself and other people stories u always got this bad feeling that something was going to happen or has happened. I heard of a student that was I guess a boy that wasn't liked defienitly wasnt the popular kid. But while being down by the lake by himself he was approached by some bullies that started to bully him. I guess after picking on him they desided they were going to throw him in the lake I guess he pleaded with them not to that he couldn't swim. So what I heard next really kind of weirded me out. One of the witenesses said they pushed him in the waters on a flat rock that slid downwards into the lake. Wel the boy panicked fighting to get up and out of the water. Screaming that something has him like he was being grabbed. As he got up he was fighting his way up this flat rock he got far enough up that the water was below his waist . No one would help him. All of a sudden there was a big swoosh in the water and the witness said it was like something grabbed him a dragged him out to deep water where there was no splash or like a fight he was just gone. I mean even if u can't swim if you are drowning u going to splash and fight for ur life. I guess the kids ran and told the camp councellors and teachers. They jumped in the water and boats and went looking for him but couldn't find him. But back to what I was doing. It was hot so I stopped and sat on a flat rock dipped my hard hat in the water and poured it on my head. While looking out across this lake I seen movement on the other side of the lake. ( this lake is small maybe 5 or 6 hundred yards at the widest ) like on the waters edge. Where I live I know the bush and the animals around it if it where a moose or mammal I would have known what it was. Just as I'm watching this my partner comes up to me and say hey what u doing kinda trying to scare me. Sneaking up on me. I said look at that. He looks and said what F#%^ is that. It looked like a kid about 10 to 12 years old by size with no clothes and like a white bluish whitish glow. It was like he was looking for something we sat there for at least a few minutes watching it. Then my work partner yells out hey you. It turned to us gave off a terrible kinda shreiky groan and went back into the water. I have heard of a ton of sightings of this thing and have heard of people being touched or grabbed while swimming. One encounter said it was like trying to drag him out of the lake not into it but while doing this it was looking o we it's shoulder like it was looking for something. This stores of this child in the lake is very well known in this area and its so bad that kids do not go to this lake no more while out at the camps . I have been out there many times since I saw what I saw. I've even been swimming but haven't seen or felt it . But I have seen big splashes on the lake top almost like when dawning fish but the lake don't have no species bid enough to make that splash.

I'd like to know the most haunted building or place in your city.


The haunted cake shop on the Wirral, where my mum used to work and where she experienced many strange things, takes some beating.

Alright...here's the other place, in my hometown of Southington CT, that I was going to mention...it had a reputation of being "haunted", but from my experiences, I'd just say that it was "creepy" at best.

Posted Image

It's a later Victorian style house that was unoccupied for many years. Local kids would frequently go in there, get spooked and tell stories about ghosts or strange things that were in the house. Many years ago, the local paper ran a full-page article about the house (I hope to find it someday - the archives of the local paper are online), which told of the so-called "haunted" history of the house (in reality, it was just publishing ghost stories the local kids would repeat in hushed voices as they would approach the house). Out of the picture, to the left, is a well (which is covered now) that a little girl allegedly drowned in. The building in the back is where the gardener allegedly hanged himself. There were other things mentioned in that article, but I cannot remember them, after all these years.

The house had a reputation because...people would move in, and shortly afterward and for unexplained reasons, move out.

In the late 70s, my friend and I went to this house (the neighbors would call the police if they saw anybody on the property) to look around. It doesn't look like much on the outside, but there were many beautiful features on the inside. I remember agreeing with my friend that we had to get to the top floor of the tower and look out the window (it was closed when we approached). After many years of being unoccupied, it was in a state of disrepair (and, sadly, vandalism), and we would have to step over or around rubble and debris. As we were leaving, we looked back at the tower, regretting that we didn't find our way to the tower...and the window on the top floor was open. That surprised us greatly, but it was getting late and we had to go home.

After dropping my friend off at his house, I realised I didn't have my cap with me - I must have left it, somewhere, in that house. I went back to the house. Retracing my steps, alone, in that house was certainly a bit creepy...floors were creaking, etc. As I walked past the bedrooms on the 2nd floor, I would swear I could see someone standing in a doorway of one of the rooms, but (of course) when I looked directly at the doorway, I wouldn't see anybody. I dismissed that as a trick of the light. As I walked from room to room, floor to floor (still not figuring out how to get to the tower or how that window was opened), I never felt that the place was "haunted"...just "spooky" and "creepy". But I didn't find my cap, so I went home.

When I got home, I was reminded to feed the dog, so I went out to get her bowl...and there was my cap, sitting on top of her dog house. Oddly enough - even though I saw her earlier in the day and played with her a bit, I didn't remember taking my cap off - but I'd swear I was wearing my cap when I first went to that house with my friend. Either I was just forgetful and mistaken...or "something" returned my cap to a place I would find it.

This house is still locally infamous (people are still driving by, taking pictures of it), but there is a family living there and renovating it. It is a beautiful house, and I hope the current residents have many years of happiness there.

i love the look of that house; not just that it fits the haunted house image, but that classice turreted Victorian look is so inviting to me. And your personal story had all of the "what the hey" spook to it, meanderer.

I love the look of this place. Imagine how wonderful it was when a family lived there in it's prime!

Kingston Pen in Kingston Canada is closed and has offered tours to people. They have sold out. I have heard something like over 100 tickets have been bought and the proceeds will go to the United Way. I think they should keep it open to the public now and continue tours.

Balo I have also been to Fort York and felt that something was there but never seen anything. Where I live now is a very haunted city. Many places to go in hopes of seeing spirit.

I am from Peterborough uk.
Our most haunted building is probably our loacl museum. It has been the subject of many investigations including T.V.s most haunted.

it was built in 1816 as a town house and remained so until 1856 when it was brought by the 3rd earl fitzwilliam who allowed it to be the citys first hospital. It remained a hospital until 1928 and in 1931 it became the cities museum.

The best known ghost story comes from the 1931.
the caretaker A Mr Yarrow used to live on site with his wife and two children, one day in September 1931 Mr Yarrow went out for the afternoon taking his two son's with him. Mrs Yarrow was left alone to deal with the last few visitors and lock up the museum which she did. She went back upto her flat to prepare dinner for family and about half an hour later she heard footsteps in the museum. Thinking it was her family returning from their day she went to meet them. When she got to the stair doors of the flat she saw a young man wearing a green or grey coloured suit. Mrs Yarrow thought that she had locked someone in by mistake, then she realised something was wrong...
His footsteps were unnaturally loud and it was then that she realised that he was actually floating up the stairs! He reached the landing infront of her, walked through the doors right next to her... without opening them carried on walking and then vanished into thin air. Mrs Yarrow left the building as quickly as possible.
The ghost is thought to be of a first world war Australian soldier named sergeant Thomas Hunter. he was british born (Newcastle 1880) but emerigrated to Australia where he worked as a coal miner. At outbreak of war he joined the Australian army and served at Gallipoli and the western front. He was seriously wounded in june 1916 and needed special treatment and was shipped to England to recieve treatment at a specialised hospital in the north of England. However during his journey his condition worsened and his doctors took the decision to stop at the next station- peterborough. He was taken to the hospital but it was to late and he died in the hospital on 31st July 1916. To this day he is still buried in broadway cemetery in Peterborough.
