Haunted Houses

The House of Faces

If you see pictures of Andalusia, Spain, you will immediately want to go visit. Old stone buildings, gorgeous beaches, and mountains. I could keep going, but then this would become a travel article. You’re going to have to plan your own vacation, I’m here for a different reason. I want to talk about a little village in Andalusia called Belmez de La Moraleda and its “The House of Faces”…

Lake Shawnee Amusement Park

Scooby-Doo – Where are you??? The Lake Shawnee Abandoned Amusement Park in Rock, West Virginia is right out of an episode of Scooby-Doo…if there were dead kids in cartoons, that is. It has a violent history that goes all the way back to the 1700s. And fun fact – it’s built on an ancient Native American burial ground!

However…this little abandoned island is said to be one of the most haunted places in the world and I one thousand percent want to go there!..

The Dock Street Theatre

The southern United States has a very rich history. And thanks to the Revolutionary and Civil Wars, it has quite a haunted history as well. It seems like everywhere you go there’s an old battleground or a building that has a ghost that’s tied to back then. Charleston, South Carolina is no exception. And The Dock Street Theatre in the French Quarter of Charleston is no exception.

Haunted Objects

The Anguished Man

The Anguished Man is supposedly one of the most haunted objects around. No one knows the name of the artist that painted it. The backstory is that the artist mixed his blood with the paint and that he committed suicide soon after he painted it…

The Ghosts of Casa Loma

Casa Loma is an absolutely stunning castle in Toronto, Canada. I was there several years ago, so I speak from experience. The castle itself is amazing! Also…Casa Loma is supposed to be haunted…

Haunted Objects

The Basano Vase

The curse of the Basano Vase supposedly goes back to 15th century Italy, although the legend is sketchy at best. All “cursed object” legends have a reason for its curse, but not this one…
