10 Roads That Will Scare You Stupid
Alnwick Poison Gardens- Alnwick is home to about 100 killer plants like Atropa belladonna (deadly nightshade), Strychnos nux-vomica (strychnine), and Conium maculatum (hemlock). The garden also has a license to grow things like cannabis, which is kept behind bars in a giant cage — obviously. Another reason Alnwick is such a popular tourist destination? The castle on the same grounds was a stand-in for Hogwarts i
Allegheny College - Meadville PA: During a fraternity ceremony where a fellow would climb the front terrace of Brooks Hall to meet a girlfriend, one young man fell to his death. The girlfriend, terribly distraught, went to her room and in a fit of hysteria jumped out of the window, killing herself. Her spirit supposedly haunts her old room and furniture has been moved around, pictures fall from the walls, the window opens and the current tenants all are driven to request a housing reassignment.
THE CHILDRENS CEMETERY (Crawford County) This small cemetery is home to the remains of 10 children aged 1-12. All the markers are dated August, 1918, leading investigators to believe that they died in the terrible flu pandemic of that year. There are reports of apparitions at the graveyard, including a man with a tall black hat who may be the caretaker. People have felt touchings and heard children's voices giggling.
THE BOUSSON (Meadville, Crawford County) The story goes that the Bousson was owned by a pair of spinster sisters that had been together throughout their lives. Later in life, one of the sisters became engaged to get married. The other, in a jealous fit, killed her sisters paramour. Their spirits are rumored to roam the grounds, along with a large shadowy creature - maybe envy?

13 Alabama Ghosts and Jeffrey by Kathryn Tucker Windham. "William Faulkner, who was known to spin particularly scary fireside stories, described the Deep South in Absalom, Absalom! as “dead since 1865 and peopled with garrulous outraged baffled ghosts.” No one knew that better than Kathryn Tucker Windham, an Alabama folklorist who spent much of her life collecting and patiently preserving Southern superstitions, recipes, and, most of all, ghost stories."
This well known photo—and perhaps one of the oldest examples of a bonifide spirit photo—was taken in the Combermere Abbey Library in 1891 by Sybell Corbet. The exposure length was approximately one hour, and the figure of a man appears to be sitting in the armchair located in the foreground (it’s difficult to make out, but a head and arm can just be made out sitting in the chair). At the time this photograph was being taken, Lord Combermere (a top British cavalry commander) was being buried four

This amazing photo was taken by a nurse in an ICU room at a Colorado hospital. She was testing her flash in the room with the lights off. This is the magnified version of the photo.
Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, renowned for creating the deductive reasoning Sherlock Holmes, became a proponent of Spiritualism in his later years. He held a séance session with Houdini that caused a rift between the two friends. In 1920, he defended the reality of fairies with all evidence he could gather in The Cottingley fairies affair. His evidence and arguments sound surprisingly similar in every respect to those of present-day books touting the idea that alien beings visit us in UFOs.
While aboard the Queen Mary a few years back my Uncle George took this picture of what he thought was an ordinary vestibule. When he got home he printed out his pictures but wasn’t expecting to find what looks like a ghost walking down the hall. My Uncle is 78 and does not believe in ghosts, but this freaked him out. He doesn’t even like to talk about the incident. I was just watching a special on the 10 most haunted places and when the Queen Mary was listed I felt compelled to send in the pi...
New Richmond, PA - The tall, strapping figure of abolitionist, John Brown has been reportedly seen here, standing over the graves where his first wife and his infant son died. There's also the spirit of a black man seen at dusk and dawn, perhaps one of the escaped slaves. Voices have been heard, and there's a cemetery on the property that may be the final resting spot for the bodies of slaves, workers, family, even soldiers.
