Are there any ghost towns in North Dakota?

Of the numerous terrifying places in North Dakota, ghost towns are certainly on the list. There are a lot of ghost towns across the state, such as Arena, located in Burleigh County, where only empty, weathered buildings stand. Carbury is another example, a ghost town in Bottineau County. The population was never above 50 people and it was already near empty by the 1980s. There are quite a few other ghost or near-ghost towns across the prairie, some completely gone with only stories remaining, others with decrepit buildings.

What are the most popular ghost stories in North Dakota?

There are plenty of North Dakota ghost stories that have enchanted and spooked people of all ages for decades. One of the most popular is the story of the library ghost, or "stack monster" at the North Dakota State Library in the Liberty Memorial Building, on the capitol grounds in Bismarck. This ghost is rumored to have caused quite a few employees and visitors of the library a fright and - according to legend - has become so well known that it even has a special badge waiting for them at the front desk should they decide to come around and flicker some lights or move books at random.

What are the creepiest places in North Dakota?

If you're taking this road trip through North Dakota but want to add a few more places that are just plain creepy even if they aren't considered haunted, you're in luck. Spots like the "pyramid of the prairie," located near Nekoma, might be right up your alley. This abandoned, huge structure looks like something from a dystopian future. It was built during the Cold War as a system to detect and defend from possible enemy missiles. There is also the spooky San Haven Sanatorium that saw many horrors and sorrows within its walls during its years of operation, but today is falling to ruin. Note that while the pyramid has operating tours, the sanatorium is private property that should not be trespassed on.
