Most Dangerous Cities in Pennsylvania

Where are the creepiest places to live in Pennsylvania?  

Pennsylvania is one of those states that are somewhat of a haven for paranormal enthusiasts. There are all kinds of creepy, weird, and wonderful places scattered all over the state that we wear the “haunted state” badge with pride. If you were to move in to, say, the house known only as “the house the devil built”, in Pittsburgh, you would have been moving into a place haunted the ghosts of a woman and her husband, whom she murdered in the 1800s for having an affair. The house disappeared in a mysterious explosion before anyone could sort out the mysteries. Move to the off-limits town of Centralia, where the ground smokes and billows thanks to an underground fire burning since the 1960s, and you’ll find yourself alone in an abandoned hellscape. When it comes to places you could actually move to, honestly, you can take your pick: it seems like every big city and small town in Pennsylvania is home to some creepy spots, many of which you can live at!  

What are some genuinely scary places in Pennsylvania? 

Pennsylvania is known for its beauty and its intriguing history, but with intriguing history often comes ghosts, ghouls, and all things spooky. For example, Pennsylvania is home to the history Gettysburg battlefield, which is easily one of the most haunted places in the entire country. Countless visitors and residents living nearby have reported – and recorded, in many instances – paranormal activity at a remarkably high rate. After dark, it’s eerie as all get-out, with the never-ceasing sensation of being watched no matter where you go or try to hide. There’s also Pennhurst State School and Hospital, an intimidating abandoned asylum complex said to be teeming with the tortured souls of the dead, thanks to a long, dark history within the facility.
