Abandoned Tunnels In The U.S.

March 26, 2021

What are some of the most haunted places in the U.S.?

From haunted hotels to haunted bars, restaurants, hospitals, roads, cemeteries, and more, every state has its very own special haunted locales that many either like to explore or avoid at all costs. If you’re in Birmingham, Alabama, a trek to Sloss Furnaces may be of interest to you. It’s a place where many workers died in freak accidents and several visitors to the now-abandoned furnaces have reported phantom sightings. Battlefields are usually a hotbed for ghostly sightings, so if you are visiting the Little Bighorn Battlefield near Billings, Montana, you may hear rifle shots being fired off or battle cries or even see a ghost of a soldier who had perished in battle here. Read about more locations in our article, Here Are The Most Haunted Spots In All 50 States.

What are the creepiest places in the U.S.?

When we find ourselves in a creepy place, we may be met with a sense of dread or feel chilled to the bone. Cemeteries are notoriously creepy places with paranormal activity and there are several throughout the country that you may not want to visit unless you want to see a ghost. Woodland Cemetery in New Hampshire, West Liberty Cemetery in West Virginia, and Elmwood Cemetery in Tennessee are just a few of the highly creepy graveyards that will send shivers down your spine.  The same goes for abandoned places, and there are plenty of those around the U.S., especially in rural areas. You are sure to feel a bit frightened at the abandoned Mining Dredge in Oregon, Crystal Mill in Colorado, or Asbury Park Casino in New Jersey. 

Can I visit any abandoned places in the U.S.?

There are numerous abandoned places people can visit around the country and some even offer tours. The Old Idaho Penitentiary, which has been closed to inmates since 1973 in Boise, is open daily for tours. Through walking around the buildings and grounds, you will get a sense of what life was like for prisoners here. In New York, Storm King Adventure Tours hosts kayak tours along the Hudson River to the abandoned Bannerman’s Castle, an imposing structure that was built in 1901.
