Not So Famous Hauntings


The most famous haunts in America are not always the best haunts. Indeed, lesser known haunts may sometimes offer more chills and thrills than those that have been promoted on TV or the Internet. Though it can be fun to see super-famous hauntings like the La Laurie House in New Orleans or the Winchester Mystery House in California, sometimes you’ll get a more authentic chill from visiting a place like Atchison Street in Atchison, Kansas. Indeed, if you’re trying to formulate a great haunted adventure for yourself and some friends, a place like Atchison, Kansas has more than one haunt to whet your palate. Atchison, after all, is considered to be one of the most haunted cities in the United States.

The Bonanza Inn in Virginia City, Montana is a good example of a haunted location that isn’t widely known, but still delivers good results for paranormal enthusiasts. The city has been host to a number of murders, suicides, and hangings which makes it a prime location for hauntings. Ghost tours are available in Virginia City. If you decide to go there, you’ll be sure to hear plenty of ghost stories and perhaps see an apparition or two as well.

The Villisca Axe Murder House in Villisca, Iowa is slowly becoming more popular as a famous haunting. Several children and their parents were brutally murdered by axe at this location. Very few visitors who go to the Villisca Axe Murder House leave without having some kind of experience. It’s somewhat off the beaten path but worth a visit if you’re looking for a more authentic scare.

The main thing you need to remember is that even though you may get a bigger Wow Factor from friends and family for visiting a famous haunting, you may  not have as good of an experience at a famous place as you would at one that isn’t as well known. If you find the right haunted location, you can end up experiencing some really amazing paranormal activity. Don’t think that you need to stick only to haunts that are features on TV. There are some great haunted locations everywhere that can deliver a good scare.
