Ghosts & hauntings

Some people have had that experience of feeling someone or something is there with them, but nothing and no one is around. You may have felt or heard something out of place when all seemed to be right. Was there someone or something there that shouldn’t have been possible? Our world is far more involved and complex, full of mystery and wonder than you suspect!

Ghosts experience accounts

  • I recently stumbled on this website and I'd like to get your take on an experience I had two years ago. First a little back ground. I'm a twenty-seven year old construction worker. I've never done drugs and at the time of the story I had and still have stopped drinking alcohol. I'm what my […]
  • I'm not sure how to start this really. But here goes… A little back history for this experience. My mother's upbringing was quite tumultuous. Very chaotic, abusive etc. She brought that with her as she lived. She always had a dark cloud just lingering above her, and she never knew quite how…
  • May 9, 2023, at 12:40 a.m. In the dead of night, I retreated into my quarters after securing the doors. As I was updating one of my ongoing stories on my Kindle, I left my wife to tend to our baby boy, who is not even three months old; he will be three months old […]
  • After almost thirty years today I just might have worked something out. When I was about ten my aunty F (maternal uncle's wife) gave me some knickknacks for Christmas. Aunty F is into drama and theatre. When I was growing up she would often give me her old costume jewelry, which I loved. That ye…
  • This was my second experience, staying in a haunted house. It was back in 2005 when my friend and I rented an apartment in Nashik, Maharashtra, India. As we were bachelors during that time, we did not care to enquire about the apartment. We felt lucky to get a fully furnished apartment even though t…
  • My cat and best bud Leo passed away on the 1st of May. Leo's history is a bit sketchy. He came to us as an older stray in about 2018. Had signs of abuse, both behaviourally and physically. He'd been neutered but no microchip, which is very odd in these modern times especially for a […]
  • I need some answers as I am very confused and drained. Around four nights ago I was sleeping when I felt this pressure upon my body. I awoke and I could literally hear the bed springs creak from something pushing down on me. I fought it off but I felt it again and I was […]
  • SV became part of my extended family after marrying my second cousin RM. I was in my awkward early teenage years and didn't care for him, specially since my relatives closer to him described SV as a snobbish and uppish person. For these reasons, my interactions with him were reduced to the most basi…
  • I'm finishing up my senior year. It was January 11, 2009. My high school pals and I are attending a dance party (in the Philippines when we celebrate a festival in a small portion of a state which is called "barangay". It usually has a dance party. Where all the teens and feeling teens can […]
  • I don't know if this story falls under ghost stories or paranormal experiences, but I am sharing a very personal experience for me. As the title states it is a day I will never forget! My father was in hospice care at home. He laid motionless on his deathbed struggling and gasping for every brea…

Hauntings & Haunted Locations

  • My wife and I had part of our honeymoon in Chattanooga Tennessee and we stayed at the Read House Hotel. According to the history of the land, one of the previous buildings that stood there was an inn that had been used as a hospital during the Civil War. One might while my wife and I were laying in bed, she had fallen asleep already and […]
  • Back in June of the year 2000, I witnessed a ghostly encounter which will stay with me for the rest of my life. At the time I was working as a site manager at a primary school at the town I grew up in – Maldon, Essex. UK. I was living at a caretakers house, which was sited on the comprehensive school adjacent to the primary […]
  • This happened almost two years ago, and it still gives me chills when I talk about it. My mother in law lived with me and my wife at one point, and we were sitting outside on the front porch one day. She ended up saying the name of a well known cryptid that you aren’t supposed to speak of, and I already quickly reminded her that […]
  • I lived temporarily with my then boyfriend (now husband) in an apartment shared by a coworker of his and her boyfriend. I was in the apartment alone one day, and I got a weird feeling looking at the door to the not used room. I thought I heard noises, and felt a presence, but couldn’t confirm. Later that week, I was home alone again, but this […]
  • Reaction from a browser reading the submission regarding a toy phone….. I’m from France and now I am 43 years old, and I’m afraid of this phone toy (to the point that i never wanted to buy one or have someone in my family give one to my children). I was about 4 years old and I was playing with this toy phone when a female […]
  • My mom grew up in a pretty bad neighborhood and in the house she grew up in there where TOOONS of things that happened.  The very first night she slept at the house, she woke up with a horrible stomach ache and after a trip to the bathroom, she laid down back to sleep, she saw a black and white face with an evil smile starring […]
  • I might’ve been 4 or 5 years old when I woke up suddenly in the middle of the night while I was sleeping next to my mom. I usually wake up when I had nightmares as a kid. Oddly enough, I don’t remember having a nightmare that night—I literally just woke up for no reason, or so I thought. Now pretty much awake, I stared at […]
  • It was late at night and I was laying down to try and sleep. I had LED lights up on my wall that I was facing. — I need to add that I had my LED lights taped to the wall because they were always falling. So I do know what them just falling looks like.  I was watching the LED lights when out of nowhere […]
  • This happened when I was 11. I was staying at my dads house during the summer. It was about 4:30am so everyone else in the house was asleep. I needed to use the bathroom but the bathroom was at the end of a really scary dark hall so I didn’t want to. I eventually got up though and as I was using the bathroom someone suddenly […]
  • We (my fiancé, and our 7 year old daughter) stayed in Rydges Hobart in Jan 2004.  It was our first night in Tasmania, and we had absolutely no idea that there were stories of Rydges being haunted. The morning after our first nights stay, our daughter came into our room, and I asked how she slept and she said ‘great’. She then went on to say […]
  • When James Wan’s The Conjuring released in 2013, it was met with a degree of fanfare and critical acclaim the likes of which a horror franchise hadn’t yet witnessed in the modern era. The widespread success of the first installment alone is thought to have single-handedly resurrected a number of other popular slasher and horror films for movie-goers to delight in. But despite such attempts, The Conjuring would always have one thing that […]
  • Slowly by surely, for the first time in documented history, the onus of responsibility to either prove or disprove the existence of the supernatural is changing course in favor of those open-minded members of our world daring enough to say that there is existence beyond our mortal realm. And while this progress is certainly reason for celebration amongst those in the paranormal community, it is also cause for concern. Like most facets of […]
  • The American northeast, being as secluded and relatively uninhabited as it is, has left its paranormal community with quite the burden to bear. Without many industrialists, they’ve witnessed the demise and decimation of countless historically haunted structures that otherwise may have had new life to them. They’ve grown increasingly small in number as the modern era pulls the region’s residents to the bustling hubs of the east and west coasts. And, perhaps the […]
  • The land on which the remnants of the Cresson Sanitarium now lay abandoned was once the property of Andrew Carnegie, one of the greatest entrepreneurs and philanthropists to ever come out of the United States. Carnegie had planned on using this parcel of land to build a wondrous mansion for his aging mother. However, as…
  • As October begins to wind down, the spookiest time of the year is slowly ramping up, culminating in a festive and terrifying Halloween night. People are running around in creative costumes and the television seems to be playing a different scary movie on every channel. With a night as scary as Halloween, it’s only natural…
  • Floating off the coast of Wilmington, North Carolina is an old World War II battleship that has been a site for paranormal activity since the early days of its service. Sitting at just over 728 feet long, this monster of a war ship is now a popular museum for visitors from all over the world.…
  • Sitting atop a bluff overlooking the Delaware River in New Jersey lies a ghoulish looking mansion. Peeling paint and wallpaper, damaged fireplaces, as well as creepy empty rooms are all that remain of this home and its rich history dating back to the Revolutionary War. Stepping foot onto the grounds causes the hairs on the…
  • Across the nation, many of us are on lockdown due to COVID-19. But while most of us enjoy our Internet connections, comfortable homes, and maybe indulge in a little bit too much junk food, the residents on lockdown at Mid-Orange Correctional Facility did not have that luxury. The inmates locked within its walls were as…
  • There is something incredibly eerie about historical war sites. Standing at a location where thousands of soldiers fought and died can unsettle you to the bone. Knowing of reported ghost sightings in that area? That is just downright terrifying. Welcome to Gettysburg, a vicious three day battle fought during the height of the American civil…
  • If it’s not obvious to you by now, there’s something about penitentiaries that the team at Ghost Hunts USA is intrigued by. We can’t seem to stop visiting these places and experiencing all of their paranormal activity for ourselves. The West Virginia Penitentiary is no different, and it’s one that we do love being able…
