What are some notoriously haunted places in Indiana?  

Indiana is home to plenty of old-school hauntings. It’s almost as if you can’t visit any town or city and not come across a ghost story or two – or ten, or more, depending on where you end up! Some of your options include the old Schenck Mansion, which is said to be haunted by a spectral lady in white. You’ll find it in Vevay. Another notorious Indiana haunt is the entire grounds of the world-famous French Lick hotel, which is an elegant but creepy testament to the Hoosier State’s haunted history. In Madison, you’ll find the old Ohio Theatre, which is said to be haunted by strange floating lights, and in Avon, you’ll find a creepy haunted bridge. Indiana is also home to a few haunted cemeteries, like Elizabethtown Cemetery in Delaware County and Memory Gardens in Rensselaer. The creepy possibilities are endless; you just need a little imagination!
