Haunted Spaces

Helltown
The excellent website Ghosts of Ohio did an impressive job of researching the Hell Town stories, and concluded that the area was first called “Mutant Town” when the federal government bought up the land in the area in 1974 to create the Cuyahoga Valley National Recreation Area. They boarded up most of the houses they bought and put US Government “No Trespassing” signs everywhere because there had been a chemical dump in the area. So naturally everyone assumed there were slimy mutants wandering around murdering people.
THE SATANIC CHURCH

This one goes along with allegations of satan worshipping made against the entire town. I’ve heard that all the people in the area worship satan , and that there are animal mutilations and satanic symbols all over the place.
All of which leads to the church, which is called Mother of Sorrows in the real world. Supposedly, black masses are conducted here, and there are supposed to be upside down crosses all over the building. As it turns out, the upsde down cross shape is just a feature of gothic revival architecture. 
THE SCHOOL BUS
This one has some creepy elements. A haunted school bus with all the seats removed is said to sit at the edge of the woods in Hell Town. Legend has it that the kids it was hauling on its last trip were killed by a crazy killer/bunch of crazy killers. They say sometimes you can see either the kids or their killer/killers inside. If it’s a single killer, he sits in the back, smoking a cigarette.
THE SLAUGHTERHOUSE/FUNERAL HOME

There’s a slaughterhouse not far from the cemetery—or so they say. The Ghosts of Ohio website reports that it’s just part of an old barn. Over time it acquired a reputation as a haunted slaughterhouse where you would see faces if you looked through the windows at night.

The Tuesday Haunting: Eilean Donan Castle -

Eilean Donan Castle is one of the most visited attractions in the Scottish highlands. Found on an island, this waterfront castle near the village of Dornie was established way back in the early 1200s, and thanks to restorations in the 1900s, it looks as if it has had little trouble standing the test of time. In fact, you might find it hard to believe that the beautiful stone structure was mostly demolished during a Jacobite uprising in 1719. After lingering in a state of ruin for approximately 200 years, one Colonel MacRae came to the rescue with a plan for restoration plan, and today, Eilean Donan Castle is among the most picturesque castles in the entire UK.

Harold Holt Disappearance - Unsolved Mysteries - It has become one of Australia’s most legendary mysteries, fuelled over the years by numerous claims and speculation. However, it’s unlikely we will ever know what happened to Harold Holt. His disappearance while swimming has overshadowed his many achievements as a politician in a career that spanned 32 years.He was born on the 5th of August 1908, and was the eldest of 2 boys. Between 1913 and 1919 he attended three different schools in Sydney and Adelaide, before being enrolled at Wesley College in Melbourne in 1921. Three years later his mother died, instilling some would later say “a sense of loneliness” that prevailed throughout the rest of his life.In 1927 he began a law degree and attended the University of Melbourne, excelling at sports as well as debating and essay writing. After graduating in 1930, he found that he could not find work as a Barrister due to the Great Depression and was drawn to politics around the same time.At the age of 27 he became one of the youngest MP’s at that time. Holt was one of the first MP’s to join the Liberal Party when its was established by Robert Menzies in 1945 and administered many portfolios in his subsequent career, being Minister for Air and Civil Aviation, Labour and National Service and Minister for Immigration. With Menzies support, Holt (now Treasurer) was elected leader of the Liberal Party when Menzies retired after his second term and on Australia Day 1966 (the same day 3 children disappeared in Adelaide by the name of Beaumont) he was sworn in as Australia’s new Prime Minister.In his short term as PM, he faced controversy regarding Australia’s commitment to the Vietnam War, after significantly increasing military involvement and defending the US and its President Lyndon B. Johnson. He also faced allegations of allegedly misusing VIP aircraft and his leadership style and public image were questioned by his own party colleagues.On the morning of Sunday 17th December 1967 Holt, accompanied by three friends and two bodyguards, drove from Melbourne to Cheviot Beach, one of Holt’s favourite swimming and snorkelling spots. Noted for being a strong swimmer, he had swam this area before, which was known for its dangerous rip tides and strong currents.Soon after entering the water, he was seen being dragged under a wave and was never seen again.A search soon afterwards by Police, the Army, Navy divers, Air Force helicopters and volunteers still could not find any trace of his body. No formal inquest or investigation was ever conducted due to it being “a waste of time and money”, however Victorian Police compiled a 108-page report and in 2005 a coroner ruled that Holt had drowned in accidental circumstances.What is known is that at the time of Holt going missing, he was suspected of being in poor health after collapsing in Parliament some months earlier, blaming a “vitamin deficiency”, however many senior Liberals suspected a heart condition. He also had a shoulder injury at the time and was said to be on Morphine, his doctor telling him not to swim or play tennis.Claims started surfacing soon after that he might have faked his death to be with a mistress.

Will the remains of Harold Holt ever be found?
Was there something more sinister, perhaps paranormal, behind him going missing?
Did he fake his own death and if so,why?
Or was one of Australia’s PM’s an Asian spy?

The Chase Home for Children was founded in 1877 as an orphanage for children in Portsmouth, New Hampshire. Today, the Chase Home functions as a residential program for at-risk children as well as a home-based family preservation program for families.

The apparition of a young girl walking in the hallways has been reported. Those who see her say that as soon as she is approached she runs down the hall and disappears.

Disembodied screaming sounds have been reported in the girls dormitory late at night. Disembodied footsteps have also been reported.

Kitchen staff have reported that on one occasion, they were discussing ghosts and paranormal phenomena that was taking place at the Chase Home. At this time, the lights suddenly shut off and the ceiling fans turned on, though no one was near the switch.

Vampiric Ghost Woman Photographed in Indonesia?
A man only known an Dimas claims he has photographed a ghost behind his friend. On an unspecified date, Dimas was out with a friend at the Citarik river in Indonesia. He took a picture of his friend standing in front of the river. Afterwards, the two looked at the photo and were shocked to see that a mysterious figure in a white gown with long, black hair could be seen climbing on the rocks behind Dimas’ friend. Dimas says that there wasn’t anyone behind his friend when the picture was taken. He believes the figure is the vampiric ghost known as the Pontianak. According to Malay and Indonesian mythology, the Pontianak is said to be the ghost of a woman who died while pregnant.
This photo doesn’t look like it was Photoshopped. This figure looks like it was actually there when the photo was taken. If the photo is real, then this could be the ghost of someone who died in or near the river. However, it’s possible that this is a hoax. The ghost could’ve been a person, possibly one of their friends, dressed in a costume. Even though they said that nobody was behind them, there’s no way to confirm if that’s the truth or not. Personally, I’m a bit skeptical of this photo only because the ghost looks a bit too much like a person, but that’s just my opinion. I’d like to know what you think about this photo. Do you think it shows a real ghost? Or do you think it’s a hoax?

Anchuca Mansion

Anchuca, also known as the Victor Wilson House, is a historic Greek Revival house located in Vicksburg, Mississippi, United States. The name is purported to mean “happy home” in the Choctaw language.

The house was built in 1830 in the Federal style by J. W. Mauldin, a local politician. In 1840 a local merchant, Victor Wilson, bought the house. He and his wife, Jane, had a two-story portico added to the front of the house in 1847 to reflect the Greek Revival style.

This majestic home is haunted by former owner Richard Archer’s daughter, “Archie” Archer.  She has been seen wearing a long brown dress in the dining room.  Also, those who have visited have felt a presence in the area what used to be the slave quarters.
