A tour through some of the locations from the hit podcast, Haunted Road with Amy Bruni (season 2).Less
The Sheboygan County Insane Asylum is a very misunderstood haunted site, historically and paranormally speaking. But with hundreds of documented deaths that took place on the current property and connections to multiple suicides, haunted happenings in the now empty hospital are frequent and extreme.
With over 6000 shipwrecks in the Great Lakes, resulting in the deaths of over 30,000 mariners, the Museum Ship Valley Camp in Sault Ste Marie, Michigan is a testament to the lengthy and often treacherous history of freight ships. Housing artifacts from one of the most tragic shipwrecks of Lake Superior, haunted happenings are frequent.
Manresa Castle in Port Townsend, Washington has had many incarnations. It is undoubtably haunted, but almost none of the lore and stories passed down through out the years have been historically substantiated. But, the truth of who is haunting the castle, might be much stranger than fiction.
Hill View Manor is said to be the most haunted building in Western Pennsylvania. Functioning for over almost 80 years as a poor house and nursing home, it closed in 2004 and now houses ghosts. Lots of them. They've even given them names, and many have very distinct personalities.
Farrar School in Maxwell, Iowa was built in the middle of nowhere to replace one room schoolhouses throughout its vast district. With no known deaths or tragedies taking place at the school, its haunting doesn't make a whole lot of sense - especially since it includes things like a nine foot tall shadow figure that insists on order on the third floor, doors slamming repeatedly and the sounds of children giggling in empty hallways.
Hales Bar Dam in Tennessee was built on ground reported to be cursed by a great Cherokee warrior. That, plus the fact it saw a number of tragic deaths on site both during and after construction, makes it one of the most haunted sites in Tennessee today.
Notorious prisoners, multiple escape attempts, murders, suicides and horrendous punishments have left one of the most recognizable prisons in history indelibly haunted. In the season two finale of Haunted Road, we head to Alcatraz to separate fact from fiction, and share a whole load of ghost stories.
The Queen Mary is a stunning former cruise ship built in the 1930s. Now permanently moored in Long Beach, CA and serving as a hotel and tourist attraction, many don’t realize her true past. With a very important assignment during WW2 and a number of documented deaths onboard, the ship is one of the most haunted locations in the world. We sort fact from fiction, and learn all about her ghosts.
Ohio State Reformatory in Mansfield, Ohio started as a well meaning facility - intent on rehabilitating offenders who weren't yet hardened criminals. But, that changed. Now, hundreds of deaths later, this imposing gothic structure is 250,000 square feet of grisly history and of course, filled with lots of ghosts.
The Battle of Gettysburg may have happened over 150 years ago, but the entire town feels like a time capsule, still very haunted by those events from so long ago. From disappearing blood stains, to disembodied gun shots, to apparitions of soldiers who look as real as you and me - the paranormal happenings there are endless.
