5. Rio Grande Depot, Salt Lake City

An incoming train hit and killed her, and she’s haunted the depot ever since. 270 S. Rio Grande Street.
6. Kay’s Cross, Kaysville
A monument in the shape of a cross once occupied this spot on 388 Boynton Road in Kaysville. Apparently, the cross was constructed by a man to memorialize his murdered wife. Visitors to the area reported that the cross would glow during a full moon, and some said that they saw the ghost of a woman. The cross was destroyed, but the area is still supposedly haunted.
7. Layton Hills Mall, Layton
It’s strange to think about a shopping mall as haunted, but many people who have worked in the shops at the mall have stories to tell. Some talk about shadows and voices; others say that the plants in planters are mysteriously uprooted in the middle of the night, with no one showing up on the security cameras. In some stores, mannequins are moved from one place to another, while closed and locked for the night. 1201 N. Hill Field Road.
8. Ogden City Cemetery
The ghost of Florence Grange haunts the cemetery. The 15-year-old girl was waiting to meet her boyfriend to pick her up when she was hit and killed by a car.

9. Ben Lomond Suites, Ogden
Many deaths have occurred at this hotel over the years, going back to its early history as previous hotels. Multiple ghosts are said to occupy the hotel now. A man fell to his death in an elevator shaft in 1921, and is said to make the elevator move between floors without human intervention. The 11th floor has the most paranormal activity. A woman died in the bathtub there. Her son, who came to collect her things, stayed in the room next door and committed suicide during his stay. Visitors and staff report seeing both mother and son, and seeing the tub in one room fill by itself. The late Mrs. Eccles (wife of a previous owner) is seen walking through the halls, accompanied by the smell of strong perfume. 2510 Washington Blvd.
10. Idle Isle Cafe, Brigham City
