In Hadley, my hometown, their are several haunted locations. Hadley was a town built in the late 1700's and was home to many Indian Wars, then led to a lot of paranormal activity. At the end of Meadow St. in Hadley, their is an abandoned house, it is said that the father beat and his children and his son latter stabbed him. I, and a group of friends, have done a complete search of the house, (all on vidoe tape), and have heard voices and seen odd things out of the corners of our eyes.
Also in Hadley, right off Rt. 47, is the Porter-Phelps-Huntington House, this is an origional house from the late 1700's when Hadley was first made a town, Indian Wars took place it the back-yard, and four different families have lived there. The cartaker, a friend of mine, says that the beds are made each night, and when she goes back the next morning, it looks as though someone has slept in them, things move around the house, candles light and go out, and you can hear voices.
Again, in Hadley, right past Meadow St., off of 47, is the North Hadley Cemetery. This place, which I also have vidoe footage of, is extremely wierd. Their is an alter in the north-east section of the cemetery, and the ground around it is extremely soft. At night you can hear voices, and I have seen a ghostly figure, wearing colonial cloths with a shovel, leaning up against a tree, just several months ago.
Off of Rt. 47 (In Hadley), past Meadow St., and right by the river, is an Indian War ground, at night, if theirs fog, you can make out shapes of horses and men, riding through the corn fields, the fog parts, and the corn moves as they pass. Voices can also be heard.
Right off of South Maple St. (Still in Hadley) their is a section of woods where over 200 coloniails died in the early 1800's. Figures have been seen, voices are heard, and "things" follow you. I have never been more scared in my life after going into these woods.
Also in Western MA, is the Northampton State Hospital (in the process fo being torn down). This palce is supposedly extremely haunted.
The Belchertown Public Highschool is home to several ghosts, a girl hung herself in a hall-way about 30 years ago. At night, the lockers supposedly open and close and the hallway is always several degress cooler.
In Goshen, the town cemetery is extremely active. In the early 1800's, a family ran a counter-fit business under the cemetery, their are tunnels all over Goshen that lead to the cemetery. Athorities arrested this family but blew up the business, causin a lot of distruction in the cemetery, stones are scewed and some graves were moved. People have said to have seen figures and odd feelings of nausea as they enter the cemetery. (day or night)
Now, if you plan on visiting any haunts in my hometown, I suggest you come with a good attitude, and show great respect for these spirits, they are unlike any other I have encountered, and can easily scare you beyond anything else.
I hope I was of some help to you.
If you'd like more info., IM me at Hudak87, or PM me.

For some actual haunts, you'd need to come closer to me, where the towns are older.

I'm from Southwick MA, Directly south of Westfield. Your looking too fair. Southwick has a ton of places to look for paranormal activity. There was a massacre in 1685 down the street from Laro Road. House down North Long-Yard Road are Loaded with activity.
In the first house right over the line of westfield and southwick (on Pontussic road) there have been Shadow People seen and heard. This was the house that I used to live in. Stuff would be moved on us and our neighbors would complain about the sounds coming from our house when we weren't home.
There were Human remains dug up about 3 years ago on a tabacoo farm and the ghost is in the old Tingly house. Yes, the Haunted House in Southwick is actually haunted. I went to school with the girl who died in the house. I believe that she is also in there. (if you look at the window over the door at night you will see something breathing on the glass and hand prints appear out of no where. Sketchy Crap to see. There is also a full-body apparition seen walking from the barn that is attacted to the house into the field and then disappearing.
My grandmother lives in a house on this road and I have seen a few ghost in this house, and was actually harassed by one. My cousin and I slept over and weren't able to sleep because the ghost of a child was throwing toys at us. I woke up with a bruise in the shape of a fist on my thigh. There have been Voices heared, Full-body apparitions seen, Shadow people seen, and a dead cat walks through the house at night.
Down the road is the old school-house which was converted into a house. The old school teacher has been seen and the beds are always made even though no one had been home all day. My aunt lives in this home.
There is also a native american burial ground at the foot of the mountain in the woods. My cousin and I stumbled upon it when we were hikeing in the woods.
The newer houses do not have as much activity, but the older ones have enough to spare.

Personally, I cannot inform you of any haunts around here. Most of the places I've heard are either residential or have been demolished. As mentioned above, the old Northampton Mental Hospital is definitely a must if you can get in.
One of my friends had mentioned something about there being a haunting in Forest Park, but I haven't heard anything more of it so it's not certain in my book.
Also, recently listed on the Shadowlands is Van Horn Park, but I'm having trouble believing that. The water does look disgusting the further you get into the park, but besides that, I haven't sensed/seen anything. Besides, the park at night is wicked dangerous. Too many hobos and drunks around.
Referring to that abandoned neighborhood in Westfield, whoa. I would definitely like to hear more about that.

If so, I'd just like to say this: lol. I remember seeing this off in the distance and just staring. However, there are a lot of these types of streets around Western Mass. If I could, I would check this out, but I'm home-bound for now. Anyone gonna take a shot?

nope, that's not it. an easier way to find the abandoned nieghborhood (of doom). in google map enter in butternut rd in westfield, ma. click the hybrid map button. you'll see city view rd make a t-intersection with butternut rd. about an inch and a half over to the right is an unmarked street that leads to (what looks like) an abandoned niegborhood. it fits the the desription posted early. it's not that hard to find, my finacee and I found the entrance road the other night. we're going to try and actually go there in week or two when we both can get a day off of work.
This sounds spooky. Why would a whole neighborhood of people (about 10 homes) up and abandon them? Could it have been a subdivision where the builder went bankrupt, couldn't sell the homes and just abandoned the whole project? If any of you go, take pictures please....lots and lots of photos. Be careful not to trespass or to get hurt, never know what state these homes could be in. You can also inquire at the town hall at the assessors department as to what happened and why the homes are vacant, it is public info. and they should tell you. I wish I lived closer to that area or I would do lots of research and take a visit.
