I will say up front I am not a believer. I also do not look down on you who do. I have never experienced anything that science or common sense could not explain.

I also like a good ghost story.

My four top places I have visited are from 4 to 1 are
4 Crescent Hotel in Eureka Springs Arkansas. Stayed one night. Nothing weird but the tour was good and it was a nice hotel.

3 Myrtles plantation in Louisiana. Took the tour and loved the story's.

2 Winchester Mansion in San jose It was a bucket list thing and we took the basement tour. Excellent place.

1 My all time fav. NOLA. I have toured St. Louis 1 several times, and taken the ghost tours and read the stories. This has to be one of the neatest places I have ever been.

Oak Alley Plantation. Not because I saw any evidence of it being haunted; I didn't. But the place was cool.

Burlington County Prison Museum, Mount Holly, NJ. It's not the "coolest" haunted place I've ever visited, but it's the most haunted place which I have visited.

I lived in a very haunted place once in Berkshire. Never saw a single ghost or had any paranormal experience at all.

Eastern State Penitentiary in Philadelphia.

It's Americas first prison.

Many paranormal investigators have been there including Ghost Hunters and the Ghost Adventures team.

Home | Eastern State Penitentiary

I've been there many times.

The other haunted location I've been to was my house growing up located in Alton IL.

Alton is arguably the most haunted city in the United States.

The most haunted building and or location I have ever been to is also located in Alton.

It's the Mineral Springs Hotel. Home | Alton, IL | Mineral Springs Haunted Tours and

ALTON HAUNTINGS:* MINERAL SPRINGS HOTEL




The Mineral Springs Hotel Pool area;




When I visited there the last time my sister an avid ghost hunter caught quite a few EVP's on her digital voice recorder.
One of the EVP's was quite disturbing and sad. It's the voice of a little girl that say's "" Mommy help me ""
There were no children in our party nor anywhere in proximity to where we were located when the EVP was captured.

It was caught in the pool area of the hotel which is down in the basement of the building.

Both of us felt extremely cold areas when we asked for any spirits to come to us while we were in the pool area.

See here; Mineral Springs Hotel Investigation Revisited

The pool area is by far one of the most creepiest places I've ever been to, not because of how it looks necessary but how it "" feels "" to most people that are in that area of the building.

A couple of people in separate parties in the tour felt like vomiting after about five minutes in the area.
Others felt dizzy and disoriented.

My sister and I felt very lethargic after capturing the EVP of the little girl.

Once we were out of the area everyone quickly improved.

Back in 1976, I was living in Charlottesville, VA and a small group of friends decided to visit the Swannanoa estate up on Rockfish Gap. This was late at night (maybe 1-2AM) and we snuck into the grounds; there was a full moon and fog on the ground, and it was I have to admit a rather creepy place.

Walter Russell and his wife Lao leased the place in 1949 for his quasi-religious "university"; there were reportedly orgies there and they had a number of female "acolytes". When we snuck on the grounds, Walter was gone but Lao was still very much alive.

Which means she had a posse of security guards, and while we were enjoying the moonlit gardens we heard barking and saw flashlights approaching through the fog ... we ran like h3ll for the car and got out of there. Can't say we experienced anything paranormal, but it was a fun time.

A two part article on Swannanoa FYI that may appeal to Illuminati fans:

Swannanoa Mansion Part I - Meeting Place of the Illuminati? | Suite101
Swannanoa Mansion Part 2 - Meeting Place of the Illuminati? | Suite101

Kind of odd none of the TV ghost hunter shows have covered it ... But maybe that's the Illiminati's doing.
