I'm Canadian.  I am spelling favourite correctly in Canadian English.  

In Canada, we use a 'u' in many words that the United States does not.  Favourite.  Colour.  Honour.  Doughnut.

The creepiest place I've ever been in is the Old Jail in Charleston, SC. There was a palpable sense of presence and major drafts despite the lack of wind outside. When we started hearing the cell doors opening in a part of the building that no one was in, even the tour guide was looking a bit unnerved.

So far I'd have to go with Gettysburg. But my love for that place goes far beyond te paranormal. Being a huge Civil War enthusiast I actually get a tad irritated when everyone goes on about the ghosts and ignores the historical significance of the place.

Locally, I'd go with Terra Vista (Tinker's Creek) cemetery. That place is spooky as all heck.

And reverent men and women from afar, and generations that know us not and that we know not of, heart-drawn to where and by whom great things were suffered and done for them, shall come to this deathless field, to ponder and dream; and lo! The shadow of a mighty presence shall wrap them in its bosom, and the power of the vision pass into thier soles.-Joshua Lawrence Chamberlain

I have always been intrigued by the site of the old Ringling Mansion in the Baraboo, Wis. area. The old place burned down. I don't remember too many details, beyond grass not growing for 3 feet around the foundation, blood stains on the walls, a buried safe - all the ingridients for a good scare!



Redhead,

I was born in Baraboo and my brother still lives there. We had gone to the old Ringling farm to see the ruins. It is rumored that one can hear elephant tumpets at night. The farm was used to house some animals near the stables.

It is a very creepy place and little is know about it.

The Imperial Hotel in Cripple Creek, CO, of course! You can check out my Imperial website (the link is in my signature) or just go to http://www.ghostvill...?showtopic=2680 here on GV. Almost as haunted is Cripple Creek's neighbor, Victor, the world famous City of Mines.

Wow! I just discovered a site that's linked to my website . . . and plugs one of Jeff's books, too ;)

Do you mean the The Old Exchange and Provost Dungeon? ***Shivers***


Mine is The Myrtles Plantation in St Francisville Louisana - same kind of vibe!

i live about 30 minutes away and the Myrtles does give me a horrible vibe, the whole place is just enveloped in darkness, even in the Louisiana summer. Yet I sensed a bit of fakeness there as well.. I do not doubt the place is haunted, but I think that the owners or whoever have taken advantage of that and the supernatural doesn't seem as genuine. For example, the place totally creeped me out, drafts and such while there, but while taking a night tour in the dining room we clearly heard the sound of a horse, and the tour guide grinned at everyone's initial scare and told some story that it was a ghost of the General returning home. It was obvious it was a recording and it just disappointed me because something doesn't need to happen while we're standing there in a tour for people to want to come to this haunted home.

I would have to say that my favorite would have to be Tombstone AZ. And then, the Myrtles too.

No, but that one is quite "interesting", too. The last time I was there, I was overwhelmed with a sense of despair and couldn't stop crying until 10 or 15 minutes after we left the place. And I got some great pictures. ;)

This one is the Old Jail that was built in 1802. http://www.cr.nps.go...rleston/old.htm It's in the same general part of town as the Historic District, but in a much rougher neighborhood. I wouldn't exactly say that it feels menacing inside, but there's definitely a sense that the spirits want you to know who's in charge.

I haven't been on any ghost hunting jaunts, son don't have a fave and I am sort of new to South Carolina (5 years) so no real fave here. I do like the story of the Gray Man of Pawley's Island...apparently he shows up before a storm to warn residents. I also like all the light house stories.

Bu my fave famous stories of all time are the Winchester Mystery House and Myrtles Plantation

Of the traditional, famous, haunts either Chillingham Castle (which is the only one that I've managed to get a good orb photo) or Hampton Court, which is just so atmospheric. I feel nothing at most of the 'famous' haunted places in the UK that I've been to.

In the US, Alcatraz scared me to death and it hadn't even occurred to me as a 'spooky' place until I got there.
