This is a bit of an unorthodox haunted house, both in-terms of architecture and backstory. Legend has it that the house is flooded with the ghosts of those who have died under the Winchester family name, including Winchester’s own life. It is also said that the construction workers who helped build the massive property also reside here to prevent anyone else from living there.

Adding to the list of vehemently abusive and bloody prisons, Moundsville was a major contributor to prisoner deaths via torture and murders, as well as the State’s own liberal usage of electric chair executions.

Last, but not least, is a hotel that tops all haunted house lists every year in the United States. This old hotel also suffers from pre-war era hexes and old tales of lost soldiers who wander the halls of the building. The staff that work there are of especially thick skin, but that does not mean they are immune to the eeriness that looms over the hotel, they often witness shapes, sounds, and changes in temperature that keeps them on edge.
