I was wondering if anyone is familiar with any of the places featured in these shows. I'd love to know if anyone has some first hand experience.

I know they don't mention exactly where the stories take place, but if someone were to watch it they might recognize it as somewhere known as haunted in their area.

It is a bit of a fallacy that certain locations are more "haunted" than others. True , some are more well known, but from my experience there is not really that much difference between the well known ones and other similar locations. In other words you probably have as good a chance of finding something at a place like Winchester Mansion (Yes, i have been there) as you would at any local abandoned property right in your hometown. It's just that the famous ones are better publicized!

I base this on 40 years of investigating, having started in the mid 1970s. In my experience ANY paranormal event is rare, you probably won't get anything at all regardless of where you go. And most of what you do get can be debunked witha bit of reasoning. But I did say rare, not nonexistent.... Every once in a while you WILL get something. And that is why they call it PARAnormal; it's outside the normal. If it happened all the time it would be normal, and that's not the way it works!

Most of the stories related by the celebrities on "Celebrity Ghost Stories" are random regular places where they lived or visted at a point in their lives; nothing famous. It would be the same if I were to say that I saw a ghost at my house. A few of the stories do relate to a famous landmark, like the Queen Mary or the Whaley House in San Diego, which have had reported hauntings for years. Regis Philbin related his experience at the Whaley House from when he was in the Navy in the 1950s, with a very interesting follow-up re-visit to the location recently featured on "The Haunting Of..." with Kim Russo.
I dont watch "My Haunted House" often enough to comment.
By the way, you are a very pretty kitty, goth_kitty.

Awww thank you *blush.*

I was more wondering if anyone had seen it and recognized it as somewhere they may have had a personal encounter or knew someone who did. Not so much a well known famous place.

I see. The stories that would have been in my neck of the woods would have been the Tracy Scoggins episode, because I believe that would have taken place in the Houston, Texas area. They didn't relay the location of the house, so that's that. Debbie Allen is also from here, but I can't remember where her story took place.
I'll just continue with the stuff that happens in our house, celebrity or no celebrity.
BLUSH?! There's no blushing in the paranormal! And you're welcome.

Nothing really about those shows but I know a guy who was the first person to investigate a house that was on American Haunting (i believe that was the show) He wasn't on the show. The show featured the McGlone family. At the time I watched the episode I didn't know any backstory about the case or the family. From the show I thought the family was kinda kooky and didn't buy their story. But after hearing Michelle McGlone give 2 radio interviews, and hearing the guy I know talk about this house I have changed my opinion. I think the show was poorly edited and didn't do a very good job of presenting this families story.
