These are the most haunted buildings in the world. From the spirit of an accused witch that roams the halls of her former convent to the dead daughter of a lighthouse keeper who’s still seen today, we take a look at the 10 most haunted buildings around the world.
10. The Sagamore Hotel
The Sagamore is reported to be the most haunted hotels in the United States. It was built in the 1800s on the shore of Lake George and has many eerie stories attached. Some say a couple, who were one of the first guests to stay in the hotel, linger on in ghost form. Guests have reported seeing them descend the stairs from level two to take their seats in the dining room before vanishing.
There’s reports of a ghostly woman in a blonde dress that regularly talks to hotel workers. The encounters are so eerie that it has made several staff quit, including a cook who refused to work after he saw the woman. Another regular ghost has been named Walter. Walter is a stout man who appears out of thin air after brushing passed both staff and guests.
9. Fort William Henry Museum
The area surrounding the Fort William Henry Museum has seen many battles (including a huge massacre), disease and intense weather, which some think is the perfect breeding ground for ghosts.
Many of the tour guides that run regular ghost walks around the property all agree that spirits definitely remain in the area, however they seem mostly peaceful and don’t want to cause any harm.
One ghost, known as Mary, whispers to people passing through a certain staircase. She says ‘hurry up, hurry up’, sometimes giving a little push to the back. Amusingly, another ghost is said to have complimented a guide’s hat.
Many report that the ghosts are more active at night. One evening during a tour, a little girl had flying orbs all around her, a little boy said he could see shadows everywhere, and eventually the glowing orbs flew around the room. One tour guide claims they were able to get a globe to float into their hand.
8. North Head Quarantine Station
The North Head Quarantine Station in Sydney Australia was used as a place to keep sick people in quarantine. From 1833 to 1984 more than six hundred people reportedly died at the station from diseases like the Bubonic plague, Influenza and Typhus.
The most famous ghost at the station is the little girl in the pink dress, who has been seen by dozens of tourists. She is said to be quite solid, she can touch objects and have an effect on them. A medium taken to speak with the girl reported that the girl was murdered by her doctor, possibly euthanised. People claim they have heard the girl saying repeatedly ‘I don’t ever want to go back’.
7. Lizzie Borden Bed and Breakfast Museum
Lizzie Borden is notorious for the 1892 axe murders of her father and stepmother while they slept. Lizzie was acquitted of the murders, but has become infamous and is assumed by many to be their murderer.
Nowadays, you can stay at the Borden home and even sleep in the room where her step mother’s body was found. Guests often run out of the house screaming, the owner hears people moving around on the top floors when she knows no one is there. Doors open and close randomly, and she even sometimes smells the floral scent of someone’s perfume. While she has never seen anything solid, one night the chandelier would not turn off. Shadows were cast around the room and a black figure was seen to be approaching her up the stairs. Needless to say, she slept in her car that night rather than wait and see what would happen if the shadow got too close.
6. Masonic Temple, Detroit
This hotel was built in 1912 by businessman George D Mason. The hotel has over one thousand rooms, secret passageways and staircases and many ghost sightings have been reported, including several sightings of George himself. George died when he jumped off the roof of his own building, and guests have reported seeing him climbing the staircase to his doom. Guests have noted slamming doors, strange noises and random cold spots all throughout the building, but the most common claim is that they constantly feel like they are being watched by something.
