Norwich State Hospital
Preston, Connecticut

We have already seen one hospital on the list, but let’s take a look at one more. This time it is the Norwich State Hospital in Preston. The hospital first opened its doors back in 1904 taking in 95 patients. Over time it was expanded and ended up with 20 buildings and some 2000 patients.

The majority of patients were mentally ill, but those with tuberculosis or a chemical dependency were also admitted. The first recorded death occurred the same year that the hospital opened when one of the patients committed suicide by hanging himself. Two employees also lost their lives in a hot water explosion in 1919. There have been multiple deaths in the building since then, many by way of suicide. The hospital closed for the final time in 1996 and attempts to sell the property have been a failure ever since!

As you might expect, Norwich State Hospital is actually one of the most haunted places in Connecticut. The most active spot is in the Salmon Building which housed criminally insane patients. Effectively this was a prison. It has steel doors and bars with rooms that were to all intents and purposes cells! It is not at all unusual to hear disembodied screaming coming from the Salmon Building.

Many of the patients were tortured and abused in the hospital. Just some of the barbaric practices that patients would have been subjected to include starvation, packing them in ice, beating them and even sexually abusing them.

This place is truly terrifying and paranormal investigators have documented hundreds of unexplained events including hearing a woman sobbing, residual sounds of operating rooms such as beeping equipment and rattling of tools. There are also sudden cold spots and many people have heard doors slam and seen children running around!

The Buford House Haunting

Despite what traditional ghost tales might suggest, not all lovesick ghosts are women. The heartbroken spirit of a scorned male reportedly haunts the historic Buford House in Tombstone, Arizona.

Located at 113 East Safford Street, the Buford House once operated as a bed and breakfast. Two sheriffs, a mayor, and a state senator have reportedly slumbered inside the home’s historic walls, as did the legendary actor John Wayne. The home is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, though the history of the Buford House is far from pleasant.

Legend has it that a man named George Daves once lived at the Tombstone home, across the street from a lovely young girl named Cleopatra Edmunds, or Petra for short. George and Petra were childhood friends, but their innocent relationship eventually blossomed into something more and the two made plans to get married.

Driven by love and ambition, George toiled away in distant silver mine. The grueling work kept him away from Tombstone, and Petra, for months at a time, but George didn’t mind the temporary separation. Soon he would have enough money to marry his sweetheart and support a family. However, these happy dreams soon went up in gun smoke.

Not long after returning from a lengthy stint at the mine, George accompanied Petra to a party. However, the night of frolic and fun turned to one of heartbreak and humiliation when Petra reportedly snubbed George by walking home with another man. The betrayal ate away at George, and he spent days brooding over the loss. On April 14, 1888, a heartsick George grabbed his revolver, pointed it at Petra, and fired four times. Two of the bullets hit their mark, and as a bleeding Petra lay screaming in the dirt, George turned the gun on himself. The scorned miner died from a gunshot wound to the head. According to a death certificate, George was just 21 years old. Petra, 17, miraculously survived her injuries and lived another 50 years. The tragic tale of unrequited love made headlines, appearing in the Tombstone Epitaph.

Does George Daves Haunt the Buford House?

Though George Daves died in 1888, many believe the young man never truly left his former home. A couple that once owned The Buford House reported a number of strange occurrences, including lights turning off and on, raps in the walls, and a doorbell that rang at 3 a.m., though no one was ever at the door. One December, the couple spotted a shadowy figure lurking in the hall. They believe it was George stopping by to admire their newly-erected Christmas tree.

Given its harrowing history, it’s not surprising that the Buford House has attracted a number of paranormal investigation crews. The California-based team Ghost Trackers visited the haunted hotspot in 2002 and sensed a “tremendous energy” in the home. According to a report posted online, the investigation crew noticed a strange light on the wall as they prepared their equipment. As a member of the team stepped forward to get a closer look, the light zipped across the room and out the door. Orbs also appeared in the crews’ photos, and one pic reveals what appears to be the face of a cowboy reflected in a bedroom mirror. The image is faint and indistinct, but one member of the Ghost Tracker crew felt certain it was George staring in the direction of Petra’s former home.

Tthe Arizona Desert Ghost Hunters visited the home and also photographed a gentleman’s reflection in the mirror. The image, posted on adghosthunters.com, shows what appears to be a tall man dressed in a black hat and black coat. Psychics at the scene saw a man with the same description walk through the bedroom wall and disappear.

However, George does more than appear in mirrors and photographs. In 2002, a guest at the Buford House awoke with a start, feeling as if she’d been zapped by a bolt of electricity. The tingling sensation traveled up her spine and down her legs, and as she lay terrified on the bed an invisible entity began sliding the covers off her body. The guest, whose report appears on SpiritsofTombstone.com, also felt a hand stroking her backside. Thankfully, the woman was spared further assault when her friend awoke and approached the side of the bed. It wasn’t the first time George had gotten frisky with a female guest. The spirit has also been known to touch women’s hair and stroke the back of their necks. Perhaps the spurned and heartbroken George is simply lonely and longing for a woman’s touch?

The Peyton Randolph House

Virginia

The Peyton Randolph House has earned a reputation as one of the most haunted places in Virginia. Built in 1715, the building first served as home to Peyton Randolph, a prominent politician and the first President of the Continental Congress. Many famous figures from the American Revolution visited the home, including Randolph’s cousin, Thomas Jefferson.

Since its construction, many people lived and died in the house, some in very tragic ways. During the Revolutionary War, the home doubled as a hospital for wounded soldiers where many young men likely passed away from battle wounds. Later, two men dueled to their deaths after getting into a terrible argument. After the Civil War, a former Confederate soldier died from illness in the Peyton Randolph House while attending the College of William and Mary.

In the 19th century, a small boy died here after falling from a tree. Strangely enough, a young girl met a similar fate after falling from a second story window. Could a curse over the house have caused the untimely deaths of so many?

The site of so many tragic deaths often has frequent paranormal sightings. Visitors see the glowing figure of a man dressed in eighteenth century clothing floating through the house. Others hear the mysterious sound of boats echoing through the corridors. Many have seen strange activity and moving curtains from the second story window. Could the young girl continue to play in the last room she stood before she died? Those who wish to find out can take a ghost tour of Colonial Williamsburg to see for themselves if the former residents continue to haunt the Peyton Randolph House.

Fletchertown Road
Bowie, Maryland

Fletchertown Road is the home to an urban legend. It is said that the Goat Man lurks in the area. According to stories, the Goat Man escaped from the Department of Agriculture Research Center.

As the name suggests he is supposedly half-human half-animal.  The urban legend goes on to say that for two decades, the 1950s and 60s, the Goat Man murdered people who traveled the road with an ax.

After murdering them he would eat his victims. To this day people claim to have seen the head of a goat, or a man in tattered clothing in the area.
