Well close to here is Moundsville Penitentiary. They do tours, stays, etc... Well, alot of us decided to go once for a "ghost hunt" which cost a pretty penny but all in all it was worth it. I didn't see any ghosts but was completely scared to death the whole time. A few friends swore they saw "something" in a room dubbed the Sugar Shack, which was basically a rec room for the prisoners but this is supposed to be where the most activity is in the prison. Of course, this is where they said they saw something and as scared as they were I have to say I believe them.

Nightguy_1961 - Charleston SC is also famous for its ghost stories involving the civil war. One such instance involved this huge house that is seen on the way to Folly Beach that had slaves shackled in the basement. At one point in time, someone decided that they were going to turn it into a restaurant. The restaurant only stayed open for about 3 months from what I understood.

DefiniteTrouble - They have Halloween Tours at this supposed ghost siting??? hmmmm....

Sometimes I wonder if they have commercialized some ghost sites too much -- and, wonder if it is fact or fiction as a result of the commercialization.

Yes, I do believe in ghosts. One place close by is what is known as the Insurrection Houses. When Nat Turner led a slave revolt prior to the War Between the states, there were several houses where his followers murdered innocent civilians. The rioters were eventually cornered at a river bank, and subsequently killed or captured.

Now, I've been to some of the ruins of these houses. There are strange sights and sounds to be experienced on certain nights. Dark stains that look like blood that can't be seen in the light of day. Screams that drift through the night air. And if a red headed woman goes into one particular house, chances are she'll feel a slight touch on her neck (legend has it that one of the victims was a red headed woman who was grabbed by her hair and pulled back before she was killed).

If one goes to the river bank at night, there are sounds of gunshots and screaming that can make the blood freeze.

True or false? Who can say? I know I've been once, and it was enough for me. Never again......NG

The Legend of the Bell Witch. She supposedly haunts the residence of the now deceased Bell family in Adams, TN. The house has become a landmark. I've been there a couple of times, and like Area 51, there's something out there. Don't know what, but something. It's just eerie! I'd love to go for the Halloween tour...
