Top 10 Haunted Houses

Strange noises are the most common clues that a house is haunted. But… for a house to make the Kidzworld Top 10 Most Haunted Houses, there’s got to be some more freaky things going on. Find out what makes the most famous haunted houses the spookiest places in the World.


#10 – Myrtles Plantation

Myrtles PlantationMyrtles Plantation

This house was built back in 1796. It served as a home to the slaves from Africa who were forced to farm. Many awful things have happened over the years between the owners and the workers and now the house is haunted with piano playing ghosts. The house is now a Bed and Breakfast for those who don’t mind being poked and annoyed all night by mean ghosts.


#9 – The Tower of London

A building over 1000 years old has served to royalty throughout many wars and violent history. 1000s of people have been tortured and beheaded in this building so can you imagine what the ghosts are like? I don’t really want to know, but this place is one of the biggest tourist attractions of London.


#8 –Eastern State Penitentiary

This prison was the home for some of the worst criminals that have ever been held captive in America. In specific cellblocks 12, 6, and 4, there has been prisoners haunted by ghosts possibly of their own crimes.


#7 – The Queen Mary

This old ship was made into a luxury hotel that people where take long cruises on vacation. However the history of the ship tells terrible stories of sailors that have died in accidents in the engine room and collisions with other ships. Now, not only are their screams heard all over the boat which alarm the passengers for no reason, but furniture moves around, people feel the touch of unseen hands, and there is a common ghost seen as a “lady in white”.


#6 – Waverly Hills Sanatorium

This building was built in 1910 for the care of patients with tuberculosis, and it is estimated that over 10, 000 people have died there. Now ghost hunters go there and explore the unexplained cold spots, with haunting screams and unexplained shadows.


#5 – The Whaley House

This is known as the most haunted house in the US as it was built in 1857 on a cemetery. The shutters are often seen to open and close from the street when there is no one in the home. There are smells of cigar when no one is smoking and perfume when no ladies are present. These ghosts are classy!


#4 – Raynham Hall

Raynham HallRaynham Hall

Raynham Hall in Norfolk, England, is where Lady Dorothy Townshend was photographed as the most famous ghost ever to be photographed. The ghost has been seen many times and described as “The Brown Lady” wearing a satin brown dress with a face that glows and she has empty eye sockets.


#3 – The Whitehouse

Woooo WhitehouseWoooo Whitehouse

All these dead presidents have held very tough jobs and some of them don’t believe that there job has ended just yet. They are busy working away at the Whitehouse looking for things and trying to tell the new president what to do. The latest is that Abraham Lincoln has told Barrack O’Bama all about his plans to buy Canada as the 52nd State.


#2 – Rolling Hills Asylum

Rolling HillsRolling Hills

This large building used to be an Insane Asylum and it was transformed into a mall of shops. After many reports of ghostly screams, shadows, locked doors, and weird voices, investigations have begun to report the strangest stories. The investigators tried to contact the spirits with experiments and the ghosts were summoned in front of many witnesses appearing to play with a rocking horse.


#1 – The Stanley Hotel

Stanley's Spooky HotelStanley's Spooky Hotel

This hotel is the inspiration for one of the most famous ghost stories called “The Shining”. The hotel seems to make the owners do things against their own will. Sounds of children playing keep the guests awake late all through the night. Guests wake up without any blankets on and then find them neatly folded beside them. Many rooms are haunted and are not recommenced to be occupied.

By request of @AwesomeIvysaurGirl34 . I will attempt to follow through as much as I can, but I would love some help from YOU, the reader. I will sometimes (often) suffer from writer's block and disinterest! If you enjoy what I've written, even in this short post, encourage me and give me ideas! It's all appreciated, even criticism. I will post as often as I write. A continuation of "The Man in the Coffee Shop", found in the forums.  A few (a lot) entrees are not included  due to laziness. December 7, 1941 Well, they’ve done it. Japan has bombed Pearl Harbor. I’ve been praying for much of the day for the families of those poor soldiers. I’ve been wondering if perhaps I should join the fight, though I might not have a choice soon enough. Drafting is sure to begin soon, as it won’t be long until Roosevelt declares war. It’s only been… what, three years?... and I feel this war has gone on long enough.   January 1, 1942 Happy New Year! Not very happy for me, though. My draft card came in today. I kind of knew it was inevitable, but… a man can hope, can’t he? Have to go pick up my uniforms now. That’s all for today   January 20, 1942 First day of Boot Camp. Yay… It was already the most exercise of my life. We ran a couple miles (I’ve never ran more than one), and I can tell my commander doesn’t like me. Lieutenant Michaels is his name. Been called out more than once by Michaels in front of everyone, and the food’s awful. But there’s this really cute secretary of his that I couldn’t catch the name of, but I already saw all the other recruits goggling at her. Pathetic, ain’t it? Talked to the guys and half of them are married already. It’s around 9:00, though I should say 2100? I think? Military time is confusing. But, the beds are a bit more comfortable than I expected. Actually, I don’t know what I expected. I don’t know the first thing about war, except a few stories from my grandpapy. He did some pretty amazing stuff back in the Great War. That smear right there is my chuckling and disturbing the pen. It’s just, they said the Great War was the “War to end all wars,” and here we are again. There’s nothing new under the sun, and human nature doesn’t change.
