Gibson Inn
Apalachicola, Florida

The ghost of Captain Wood haunts room 309. He died in that room from pneumonia after returning from sea. He moves shoes, tucks people into bed, and is generally considered to be friendly. Sunshine Gibson is believed to haunt the second floor. She is seen with her hair in a bun and wearing a long grey dress. She and her sister owned the hotel in the 1920’s. The front desk receives many phone calls from rooms that are unoccupied and from the kitchen phone which no longer works. The piano will sometimes play even though there is no one in the room. Footsteps are heard walking up and down the hallways.

Remington Arms
Bridgeport, Connecticut

Remington Arms in Bridgeport Connecticut first opened in 1867 as the Union Metallic Cartridge Company, but was bought over by Remington arms in 1915 and was expanded into a 73-acre manufacturing plant. During the early 20th century, Remington Arms was one of America’s biggest munitions companies employing over 15000 people and producing tons of munitions every year.

Like many factories, Remington Arms has seen its fair share of accidents – many of them fatal. A few of the deaths on these premises include two employees who fell into a giant bat of molten metal and several more in an explosion in 1942. The explosion occurred at the height of wartime efforts, right on the production floor.

Seven employees died and around 80 others suffered injuries. It is believed that the shadowy figures that are frequently seen on the factory floor could be the spirits of those who perished in the explosion!

Ramtail Factory

Perhaps the oldest and most haunted place in Rhode Island is the Ramtail Factory in Foster. It was even put in the 1885 State Census Record as a haunted location. In 1799, the Potter family started operating a mill. William Potter expanded the mill in 1813. At this time, William took his son-in-law Peleg Walker as a partner. The Potter’s ran the mill by day and Walker was the night watchman at night, walking from building to building holding on to his lantern.

This went well for several years, until one day Walker and Potter were seen having an argument. Walker preceded to say that if something kept up, he’d walk in one day and grab the keys from a dead man. On May 18, 1822 Walker’s words came true. Potter walked in and saw that Walker had hung himself from the bell rope with the keys hanging visibly from his pocket. The Potter’s then buried him in the family plot. However, this is when the strange events started to happen.

The night of Walker’s death, the bell tower struck at the stroke of midnight. The Potter’s went to go investigate this but no one was there pulling the chord while it was happening. This went on for a few days until the Potter’s then replaced the bell with a new one. Now it got even more interesting that night. The town awoke to the loud sound of the mill running at full service. Everyone in the town went to the spot to watch in shock as the mill was running without anyone operating it and the water was flowing in the opposite direction of the stream.

Most of the town villagers left after this for fear of the mill. The people who remained in the town would see the apparition of Walker going from building to building with the lantern in his hand.

Later on in the 1880s, the factory mysteriously caught on fire. The remains of the factory still lie in the woods of Foster to this day and is a hot bed for paranormal activity.

1981 Ghost Photo

“Here is a picture of me taken in December 1981.  No doubt the apparent “ghost” was caused by the light, but the shape of the image and the way it appears to have its arms around me in a protective way is a bit spooky.”

The 7th Barn

The 7th Barn is a scary urban legend about a wealthy farmer who owned a lot of land and built a new barn on his property every time his wife had a baby. He named each barn after each of his kids and by the time this story takes place, they had 6 kids and were expecting number seven.

But the farmer’s wife died in childbirth and so did the unborn baby. The farmer went insane with grief and couldn’t tend to his farm. The family had no money and the farm started going under.

They say the farmer, in his madness and despair, took and axe one night and led his children out to the barns, one by one, and murdered them. He buried their bodies in the seventh barn.

It was in the seventh barn that the farmer hung himself. Eventually, as the story goes, all the barns were torn down and the land was sold off. All except for number 7. Nobody would buy the land because of what had happened there. It was abandoned and soon fell into disrepair.

They say if you go to that barn at night you can see the ghost of the farmer hanging from the rafters and swinging in the wind, dwelling on his terrible crime for all eternity.

No-one was ever really sure where the seventh barn was located. It was definitely in Ohio and some say it was the Cranz farm in Cuyahoga Valley or at Top O’ The World in Northampton.

In 1997 a local Ohio teacher claimed that he had found the infamous barn’s real location. He said that none of the barns had ever been torn down, they had simply been incorporated into neighboring farms.

According to the teacher, he pinpointed the location because barns on neighboring properties all had nameplates on their door with the names of children engraved on them. The teacher and his son set out at night to visit the barn, hoping to capture some paranormal activity on video.

The next morning, the teacher’s wife reported her husband and son missing. Police found their abandoned car by the roadside. While searching the area, they entered a barn in a nearby field and found the dead bodies of the teacher and his son hanging from the rafters.

Aokigahara Forest

Aokigahara is a forest that lies at the northwest base of Mount Fuji in Japan.

The forest is a popular place for suicides, reportedly the most popular in Japan and second in the world after San Francisco’s Golden Gate Bridge. Statistics vary, but what is documented is that during the period leading up to 1988, about 100 suicides occurred there every year.

The high rate of suicide has led officials to place signs in the forest, in Japanese and English, urging suicidal visitors to seek help and not kill themselves. Annual body searches have been conducted by police, volunteers, and attendant journalists since 1970.

The place has long been associated with death: ubasute may have been practiced there into the nineteenth century, and the forest is reputedly haunted by the Yūrei of those left to die.
