Haunted Places, Ghosts And Hauntings In Pennsylvania

 

Disclaimer:

Here you will find some "reportedly" haunted places and locations in Pennsylvania. Please note that these locations were obtained from www.theshadowlands.net and this list was not compiled by the SHGHRS. Though the Strange Happenings Ghost And Hauntings Research Society organization has indeed, proven and disproven some of these locations, we have not verified that ALL of the locations listed below are truely haunted and we know very little, if anything at all about the majority of them. We are always interested in hearing about new possibly haunted locations to investigate, but we do not update or maintain the listings found within our haunted locations pages.

Abington - Abington Presbyterian Church- There is a small child ghost is spotted, it is known that a graveyard was removed to build the church in 1779 and they moved the graveyard next to the church, people have seen the child in the windows at night in the church and some people have seen it while praying at church.

Academia - Academia - Being right beside a cemetery, the old school for girls is pretty creepy. Rumor was that the gardener killed some girls and hid their bodies. It is said that if you go there at night, you will be chased out by ghosts and your car will have trouble starting. It is also said that when you are leaving you will see the gardeners ghost sitting on the steps of the church by the cemetery. Reports of a girl singing.

Allegheny - Bentleyville - the spring - Strange sounds like organ music coming from the graveyard.

Allegheny - Culmerville - Culmerville Hotel - This Spirit has said that 'he' is cold and forever in the confines of this building. I do not know the Culmerville Hotel history: date built and original purpose. I do know that there is one very 'needy' spirit in there.

Allegheny - North Park - Old Mill Rd. - Gravity Hill - At the stop sign closest to North Park Golf Course, you are on a hill going down...but when you stop at the stop sign and put your car in neutral, you actually go back up the hill instead of drifting down the hill! I haven't heard of any reasons why this happens.

Allentown - Cedar Crest College - the ghost of a girl that committed suicide there haunts Butz Hall.

Allentown - Constitution Drive - Reports of an apparition of a man that walks with 2 dogs that have red glowing eyes. Believed to be the owner of the dogs, he was run over by a train losing a leg and bleeding to death.

Allentown - Hamilton Street - The ghost of a young woman walks down this street late at night near the area where the old Hess's building had been. It is said she was struck and killed by a car when she attempted to cross the street during the 60's. She stands late at night with a vacant look in her eyes.

Allentown - Hamilton Street - Magic Tree - People have claimed to have seen strange lights fly in the sky around the tree, and the entire area has a sense that 'something' happened there. One student took a picture of the tree and a face of an old man appeared in the image.

Allentown - King George Inn - Believed to be haunted by a ghost named Charlie, who likes to bother people working in the kitchen, drops utensils and moves things around.

Allentown - King George Inn - Several ghosts reportedly haunt this place. A woman and young child can be seen in the basement, along with a man wearing Revolutionary War type clothing. By an employee's account, a ghost hunter asked to spend the night alone there once. In the morning, the owner returned to find the ghost hunter's equipment, but the ghost hunter was never seen afterwards.

Allentown - Magnolia's Vineyard Restaurant - the ghost of a young woman haunts this building.

Allenwood - ordinance/behind the prison - long windy road, filled with old cemeteries, where some inmates were buried. bunkers where inmates had to stay. presences are felt, glimpse of light seen. Feelings of being watched.

Altoona - Baker Mansion - This mansion is said to be haunted by the matriarch of the family. There is a wedding dress in a glass case that is said to move on it's own, especially around Halloween and full moons. Tours are given and during the Halloween season, midnight tours. Some say they have seen the woman that roams the house.

Altoona - horseshoe curve- in the tunnel if you flash your lights three times and shut everything off you can hear people laughing and shadows of people walking beside your car.

Altoona - Lakemont park - At the completion of the roller coaster a Maintenance worker was killed by a coaster car during a test run. To this day people say they see him working on the track while they are riding the roller coaster.

Altoona - Wapsononock Mountain - Beulah Road - This legend is a cross between the spectral hitchhiker stories you have heard before and the sort of "Resurrection Mary" type tales familiar to the Chicago area. the ghost of the white lady still walks at night. For historical background there used to be a hotel at the top of the Wopsononock Mountain that was a fairly common getaway for people in Altoona. The Wopsononock hotel and famous lookout burned in the early part of the 20th century and was never rebuilt. In fact, at one time it was serviced by a narrow gauge railroad know as the "Alley Popper" although that has nothing to do with this tale. The road heading up to the Wopsy Lookout (as it is known hereabouts) is now Juniata Gap road in Altoona. This road is a treacherous one bearing a curve known as the "Devil's Elbow" which has been the scene of many accidents. Apparently in the early part of the century a couple was married and was heading to the hotel at the lookout for their honeymoon. I know nothing of the father chasing them which is related to the Ebensburg tale you have given. The legend goes that they were both from Altoona and were heading up the road leading to the hotel when the carriage went over the edge rounding the Devil's Elbow. Both were apparently killed but the body of the husband was never recovered. Since then travelers on this road have encountered the specter of a woman in white, sometimes seen to be carrying a candle, who apparently is looking for something. Variations on the tale have her waylaying young men and looking them over to see if they are her husband, or hitching rides with young men headed for the top of the mountain and then disappearing near the Devil's Elbow. Apparently this spirit has also been seen on the road leading up the mountain where the lookout can be accessed from the other direction, Buckhorn Mountain, and she is also known as the "White Lady of the Buckhorn" as well as the "White Lady of Wopsononock". The site of the old hotel now is littered with television and radio towers and is still a sort of "lover's lane" spot for a lot of folks. Apparently some of the technicians at the towers have reported seeing her, but the most recent account (late 1990's) involved a man who offered her a ride. She apparently got into the car and he could not see her in the rear view mirror but could see her when he turned around. She said nothing to him and disappeared at the Devil's Elbow. Much like Resurrection Mary, it is a difficult tale to dispute since it has occurred so often to so many people over such a long stretch of time. Although the historical details are sketchy! No one knows who she was or when the accident actually took place. If you ever get a chance to get to this area take a trip on either road and you may get a chance to run into her.

Amity Hall - Amity Hall Hotel - This hotel has been standing since the 1800’s. There where a few horrifying events that took place here. 2 children where killed in the attic area where the blood stain can still be seen. An unexplained explosion killed many that haunt the place. A ghost of a woman that was beaten to death by her husband stands at the top of the second floor stairs, and is reported to not like men. - NO TRESPASSING

Banning - Alliance Furnace - This was one of the last remaining iron furnaces in the Eastern United States. Legend has it that an old settler, who had gambled away all of his money, came home one night and could not feed his dogs. He took them off on a wild chase in which he lead them to the iron furnace. He then burned them alive. On a clear fall night, one can hear the squealing of dogs by the furnace.

Barton Brook - Benson home - There are several hauntings at this location. They all circulate around an old home from the 1800's in the mountains of northern Pennsylvania. One ghost is of someone who has ethnic features, somewhat of a servant looking, perhaps a black servant, not sure. This is a torso / head apparition. The living residents of a house heard a party going on downstairs. Wishing to investigate, they head down stairs. This house had a sealed up staircase (It had its own room). When they got to the door, they could hear people talking and smell coffee. As they opened the door, the smell and sound disappeared. It reappeared when they returned to their beds.

Bartonsville - International eatery - In the early 90's the site of a female apparition was sighted walking into the kitchen. The desk was also said to contain a spirit which opened and closed drawers. The building is now Dale's coffee bar

Beaver - Brighton Township - Mudlick Hollow - It is said that in the 1800s tragedy struck when a young newlywed couple was riding their horse drawn buggy through the hollow on their way home after the wedding. A small animal is said to have darted out of the woods, spooking the horses and causing the buggy to roll off the road and into the creek. The bride died from a broken neck and the groom was pinned under a horse (who had become lame) and slowly died next to his new bride. It is said by many locals that on very dark nights a fog creeps up onto the road (which is more of a dirt lane) and you can hear a horse drawn buggy fast approaching behind you, but before it comes upon you there is a crash, a scream, then all is silent and the fog vanishes.

Beaver Falls - Summer Cut Bridge - Legend has it that a woman's car went off this bridge on a rainy night and she died.

This was then used as a frontier courtroom where several people were hanged. These restless spirits are responsible for a multitude of supernatural activities at the inn.

Beech Creek - Furst Corner Restaurant - Back in the late 1800s, early 1900s, the owner of the restaurant, Mr. Furst died in a fire in his barn, while trying to save his animals. Mr. Furst enjoyed smoking cigars and staff at the restaurant say that when most of the customers are gone you can smell cigar smoke, or chairs will move on their own. People who stay in the Furst Corner Bed & Breakfast also say you can smell smoke, and hear someone walking up and down the halls when no one is. One of the waitresses has even said once she had locked the door, and had gone over and it was unlocked.

The Molly Maguires were a group of disgruntled miners in the 1870's who used violence as a means to bring about change in the corrupt mining industry. Several men were accused, arrested, and eventually hanged at the prison for being Molly Maguires. On the eve of his execution, a man who proclaimed his innocence ran his hand along the dirty floor of his cell and made an impression of his hand on the wall, claiming the impression would always remain as proof of his innocence. The next day, he was hung and the hand print was washed away. Three days later, the print reappeared. As legend has it, the wall has been repeatedly washed and painted, but the hand print always returns. The wall was supposedly even ripped down and re-plastered, but the hand print returned yet again.

There are 3 distinct hauntings. The first haunting is in the Old Fletcher Barn (Which became the Terror Barn). One of the groundskeepers apparently had nowhere to go when Fletcher's was shutdown, so he thought he'd make a statement to the world by hanging himself in the barn facing the window on the second floor. Working there I noticed the scariest things imaginable would happen. For one thing (and they had this on tape one night while we were making a commercial for the terror barn) the radio (which was located at the other side of the barn in the "Michael Meyer's Room") was changing stations rapid ply and shutting off and turning on while we are all meeting in the wizard room (on the other side of the barn, nowhere near Michael Meyers).The second thing, if you lay on the torture rack and look up you can see a man who walks the rafters above. The other thing has to do withhe sound of cowboy boots following you as you walk around. The last thing is above all the scariest, a piercing scream while we were closing one night. The second haunting of the Norwin Elks is located in the bar/dining area. Apparently in the attic there is a specter who you cannot make out, but she/he is there and watches you. Some say that it is a little girl and others say it's a little boy. The third haunting is in the basement of the Norwin Elks. If you walk down there you can hear a dog barking for hours on end, but the Norwin Elks don't have any dogs. And sometimes you see a maintenance man down there who tells you that the pipes of the furnace need a cleaning, and when you ask them what's wrong he vanishes. There are other reports of a man in the bar who never leaves and when you finally force him outside he vanishes after he leaves the door. But no one can say for certain what happened to any of these ghosts. The only ghost that we know for sure is the Fletcher's Groundskeeper in the terror barn who hung himself.
