Mysterious places and haunted places

There’s many, many places right on our own planet that for the most part defy explanation. Most are a mixed bag of unexplained places and haunted. While the temptation to go and check out these places might be powerful, I wouldn’t recommend doing so without first getting permission from the property owners. By not doing so, you’re inviting trouble and or a night or two in jail. Some of the haunted places are from right here from my own home state of NY (there’s a big list of them you can see the whole list state by state at the Shadowlands haunted places site) are:

Camden – The Old Harden House – On fourth Street is the old Charlie Harden House. Built in the mid 1800’s, Charlie Harden, a wealthy man, had this house built where he later died. There have been more than a few sightings of the ghost of Mr. Harden in the ornate foyer, and on the curving stair case connecting to it. Cold spots abound in the house even though extensive work to the work house was completed. The sounds of someone walking on the long curving stairs and landing are often heard mainly in the late afternoon. Children who have lived in the house tell stories of the nocturnal knockings on bedroom doors and walls, and of the bad dreams that accompany them.
Camillus – Brickyards – Walking through there on a clear night, there is said to be a gargoyle that comes out at midnight. Strange winds that only hit certain people & flash lights malfunctioning only to work when leaving the area.
Camillus – Tow Path Ghost – A drunken Canalman is said to have fallen in the water near the aqueduct. He was caught in his own line and dragged to death by his mule. A dark figure can be seen pacing the path leaving behind wet footprints.
Camillus – Walnut West Apartments – One apartment in this complex has been said to be haunted by a little girl. All of the tenants from this one apartment have moved out as fast as they have moved in. When mentioned even the managers of the complex agree that the place is haunted by a little girl. The complex is said to be built on what was once a farm and the little girl was believed to have been killed there.
Canadaigua – Victor – New Michigan Road – A woman and her new husband were traveling home along New Michigan Road when they had a carriage accident, that killed them both. The Lady in White is still searching for her husband along the road. She has been spotted during the full moon along the road.
Carthage – state street – It is believed that in the 1950’s a young married couple was killed in a drunk driving car accident, by 2 teenagers. they all died. at night it is said that the young couple run out in the road and steal young children because they had always wanted to have children. the 2 teenagers will take the children and return them to their parents.

Of particular interest to me are mysterious places that are found all over the world. Here’s a story I ran across on the Web found at strangmag.com that peaked my interest…

MEXICO’S ZONE OF SILENCE

by Scott Corrales

There exist a number of “accursed sites” on the surface of our planet. Some
of these locations are the sites of gravitational or atmospheric disturbances
that still remain unexplained by twentieth century science. Such anomalous areas
possess properties which interfere sporadically with humans and their equipment.
One area worthy of mention surrounds the Mediterranean island of Elba (famous for
being Napoleon’s first place of exile), and is the bane of maritime aviation in
the Mediterranean; another spot is Mt. Stredohori in Czechoslovakia, where an
unknown force drains car engines of power throughout the length of a 75-foot
stretch of road.
