Southington, Connecticut and Harrisville Rhode Island
The Haunting in Connecticut and The Conjuring house...basicall

Both are still occupied, private, so obtaining access will very difficult
Just curious if anyone was able to gain access to "famous" haunted houses LEGALLY?

Ive been to the Ammityville House...its a different address, but its the only house on the water that is turned 90 degrees from the rest of them...totally redone and hard to recognize if not for the weird position...we were able to get in this house and explore...I am sensitive and got some weird basement and attic vibes, what I thought was the sewing room really disturbed me...but most of the house was just a house

Ooh, fun--do report back! I get too creeped out to visit haunted places anymore, but I love to hear about them!

The only famous haunted place I've wandered was the Queen Mary. Our daughter played the ghost of "Jackie" at the pool for some history channel show years ago and security let me wander all over the bowels of the ship where the public isn't allowed and showed me some of the supposed hotspots.

It was very cool for me from a history buff perspective but I left feeling like the ship's "spook central" reputation is a bit over-exagerated.

I think people are haunted rather than places and that if we could peek outside of our little sliver of reality we'd see things going on EVERYWHERE. Perhaps certain places are just better at putting some "lucky" folks in the right mental state to allow them glimpses of the beyond? I don't know.

Back in this world however, don't pester people living in those places. It's rude, most of the claims are B.S. anyway and for the real paranormal events it's not like you are gonna experience anything... it's kinda like trying to see lightning by going to the sites of former lightning strikes.

I feel sorry for people that live in houses that are supposed to be haunted and well known. They must get hundreds of complete strangers every year wanting access into their home just to quench a curiosity.

In what year did you go to the Amityville house?

Also, the Queen Mary is haunted...by a little girl. I know that personally from experience back in 1961/1962. She only wants someone to play with.

Yep, and even houses that arenít famous but the locals know what happened? I would never buy a stigmatized house for just that reason.

Agreed. Sometimes people buy houses having no idea about the home's haunted reputation. This is true especially when someone buys a house in another neighborhood or town they aren't familiar with. I don't think it's something realtors have to disclose.

Real estate disclosure laws vary from state to state and within counties and municipalities in those states.

There are enough public spaces that are reputed to be haunted. Not sure I'd want to infringe on a private residence unless it held some personal connection.

There are also those places that have spiritual connections that are not the site of any malevolence that can generate significant sensations to sensitives. I'd think the north-east US is full of these places.

Yes, there are plenty of public places you can visit without fear of prosecution from the authorities. If you are ever in the Seattle area, for example, stay overnight at the Sorrento Hotel, or go up to Port Townsend and stay at the Manresa Castle or at the Palace Hotel, where we had our first experience.
