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. If there would be any place that has ghosts roaming the grounds to frighten visitors, it would be in Moundsville.
This eerie home of horrors of the past is a relic of modern medicine’s ugly and downright ignorant history. This building housed tens of thousands of tuberculosis patients, many of them small children, who were trapped in a never-ending torture experiment. Nothing but howling and screaming filled these walls during operation, which adds to the cold whistling of its current empty shell today.
Caves are the perfect home for a wandering spirit. The Bell Witch Cave is home to a haunting resident who once terrified the Bells, who owned a farm nearby. No one knows why this ghost had such a problem with the family, but any tourists who pass through and explore the cave do not last more than a few minutes before the darkness proves too much.
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.
