When I decided to start this haunted places blog, I talked to some friends and family and it seems almost everyone, whether they actually believe in ghosts or spirits or not, seemed to be able to recall one or more instances of a scary or unreal type.
The first I remember was way back when. I was driving from Ohio to California to get married and had driven for about 40+ hours without sleeping. I was on Rt 80 in the mountains of Nevada. It was going to be a number of miles to the next rest area so I was trying to stay awake.
I dozed off. I woke up when someone was tapping me on my shoulders, just in time to avoid heading over the side of the mountain. Now that was a wake up call!
But I was alone in the car. I swore someone was hitting my shoulders trying to wake me up. It was eerie. My grandfather had passed away a few months previous and I always have it in the back of my mind that he woke me that day. I don’t completely believe that but it’s in my subconscious.
Well this site is about things like that and actual haunted places, haunted houses, cities, whatnot; things that seem to be unexplainable.Things such as Bird Cage Theatre in Tombstone, Fort Chaffee in Western Arkansas, Manteno State Hospital and more.
I’m getting scared just thinking about it.
I hope you feel free to add your own haunted experiences.
