There are several not far from me. Although I don't know of any local people that think they are haunted, tourists seem to be convinced they are.

For a listing of the better known "Haunted Places" in ND see HERE

However, I have yet to meet any local people that even knew the places are allegedly haunted.

Avenel Plantation House in Bedford, Virginia is about 5 minutes away from where I live. I used to work at a place two streets over which would have put it on the grounds of the original plantation. I had very odd things occur there and many co-workers felt it was haunted, as were many spots in Bedford.

None that I know of in our city or within about 25 miles, but in Seattle there are many, and also across the water at Port Townsend, and north in Sedro-Wooley (Western State Hospital). Our first experience was at the Palace Hotel in Port Townsend, but there are better known locations there.

A days drive away:
Disneyland, Orange County
Carson City, NV

There are probably dozens of lesser ones that I can't think of at the minute.

Never seen anything paranormal, but I have come up with some good debunkings.
There's also the USS Hornet in Alameda; and the Presidio, Fort Point, Queen Anne Hotel in San Francisco.

There are more not-so-well known spots here in SF, such as a children's hospital at UCSF and a bathroom at a Catholic parochial school (I forgot which one).

My house has a few friendly ghosts, and a friend's house has a violent, malevolent ghost (I witnessed one of the attacks).

There are a lot of spots here in SF where I've had & have experiences with ghosts because for some reason I tend to attract & stir up ghost activity (as well as communicate with them except they do most of the talking when they choose to talk).

The Baleroy Mansion is down the street from where I grew up in Philadelphia; it is supposedly one of the most haunted places in The US with a "death chair" that was once owned by Napoleon. The owner banned people from sitting in it years ago LOL. I always thought it was the scariest home perched up on the hill like that but I never knew it's history until fairly recently.

Baleroy Mansion - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Chestnut Hill's Baleroy Mansion's Many Ghost Stories - Around Town - Chestnut Hill-mt. Airy , Pennsylvania | Patch


"In the infamous blue room of the mansion, a 200 year-old blue chair known as the chair of death is said to be cursed. It has been said that when someone sits in it, the person dies. About 4 people have died and Easby then banned people from sitting in the chair. The chair was said to be owned by Napoleon."

I live in Maryland....so plenty There is an asylum just outside of DC that is supposedly haunted. There are active duty police officers that patrol the property (they operate from a trailer located on the property) so I have yet to check it out. Considering the amount of asbestos in the old buildings, I probably never will. The place was, I believe, featured on one of those ghost hunters shows.

I am from Nor Cal. Outside of the Winchester House (which is really cool, but most def not creepy), I haven't heard of the other locations as being haunted.

I was on the Bay Bridge less than 24 hours before the earthquake, so that is kind of creepy, I suppose.

I have a good number of friends from Minot, no ghost stories that I know of. North Dakota does have a rather large population of ghost towns, though.

The Queen Mary in Long Beach - have stayed there several times and did have one explainable experience.

The Glen Tavern Inn in Santa Paula - about an hour from here. I've been there - they took me up to the most haunted room. Definitely something there.

Roosevelt Hotel in Hollywood

Many others in the Los Angeles area.

I've seen the Queen Mary on many of my cruises that I go to. Nice looking ship.
