Top three hauntings of my choice
As a child I was always interested on what's out there besides us. I loved the feeling of being scared and going into creepy places. I basically grew up around scary things. My grandparents were always telling me their horror stories or my mom experience of seeing something that wasn't there. Things like that always interested me as a kid. So by going across america to see the most haunted places I will have my experience and my own story to tell.
Moundsville Penitentiary in West Virginia was one of America's most violent correctional facilities and the final stop for almost 1,000 criminals. The prisoners lived in cramped quarters, which led to riots. Many men were hung or killed in the electric chair, while others were murdered by other prisoners. The prison closed in 1995.
Trans-allegheny lunatic asylum
The Weston State Hospital, this asylum was home to thousands of people with mental illness, starting in 1864. Hundreds of people died here before the facility closed in 1994. Spirits are said to haunt the building and grounds today, dating back to the Civil War era when the asylum's grounds served as a military post.
The amityville house
The house on 112 Ocean Avenue in Amityville, N.Y., an upscale Long Island suburb, was the site of a brutal family murder in which 23-year-old Ronald DeFeo, Jr. shot and killed his parents and four younger siblings on November 14, 1974.
