What are some other haunted places in Pittsburgh?
Pittsburgh is rife with the paranormal, which means we have a pretty good chance of experiencing something otherworldly at least once during our time here. Our chances increase if we decide to check out some of the most haunted places in Pittsburgh, including:
- Coulterville Cemetery in McKeesport. Long before it housed a cemetery, these grounds were home to an orphanage where tragedy took place. One evening the orphanage went up in flames, at least according to legend, resulting in the deaths of all of the orphans inside. Today, if you visit the cemetery once the sun has gone down, you might see an apparition of the orphanage on fire. Look closer, and you might even see the desperate faces of the children at the windows. If you really want to feel your blood run cold, get out of the car after you’ve driven out of the cemetery. Do you see tiny handprints on the windows? Don’t be surprised if you do.
- You’ll definitely want to summon a dose of courage before you drive down Shades of Death Road in Avella after dark. Many years ago, miners were killed beneath the ground along this road. Their bodies were never recovered. Their restless souls are said to roam the road to this day. Drivers also tell of seeing shadowy figures that run in front of their cars, forcing them to slam on their brakes.
- Snyder Cemetery in Butler tells a haunted tale of its own. It was owned by the Snyder family, led by patriarch Conrad. He’s said to still oversee his cemetery to this day, although has an otherworldly presence. If you see him walking in the distance, don’t be afraid to call out to him. He’ll likely disappear, though. Visitors also tell of a thick fog that hangs over the cemetery in the darkness and of seeing glowing orbs and red eyes shining in the darkness.
