Best Haunted Houses in Every State

Cemeteries may be unsettling all on their own, but the creepiest part of Maple Hill has nothing to do with the tombstones. Within the graveyard is a playground, colloquially known as The Dead Children’s Playground, which is thought to be haunted by the spirits of murdered kids. Locals have reported swings moving on their own, children’s laughter, and the sound of little feet scampering after dark.

Alaska:Historic Anchorage Hotel

There have been so many ghost sightings here, that the hotel keeps a guest ghost log." Twoof the most loyalpatrons include the spirit of a jilted bride who took her own life in the 20s and an Anchorage sheriff who was shot in the alleyway in 1921.

There are loads of haunted places in the UK, which isn't that strange as people have been doing various and nepharious things since the Stone Age.

I remember reading about one place, a medieval castle, that had frequent sightings. Some people, when they went into the cellars, heard and saw some Roman centurions marching along, but only the top half. Archaeology discovered that there had been a Roman road running through the site, but at the level that the ghostly centurions would have walked along.

There's also a famous town (that I can't remember) where many people have experienced a "time slip". It's an old town, with alleyways, and apparently some people, when they've walked past one particular alleyway and glanced down it, don't see the modern town, they see a scene from the past - maybe the Middle Ages. But when they go back, sometimes only a few minutes later, it's back to the present day.

Here's one castle, but they only speak of 3 ghosts, and only one of them a solder ~

Scarborough Castle is a former medieval Royal fortress situated on a rocky promontory overlooking the North Sea and Scarborough, North Yorkshire, England. The site of the castle, encompassing the Iron Age settlement, Roman signal ..... grounds are reputed to be haunted – by three ghosts, among them a Roman soldier.

There are others that claim to be haunted by one soldier, but couldn't find one haunted by multiple soldiers.

Portchester Castle, Caernarfon Castle, Pevensey Castle, and Ludlow Castle, have a reputation of seeing the ghost of a Roman soldier, to name a few.  Then there's the Leap Castle, considered the most haunted in Ireland.  Then there's the Newcastle Castle Keep and Black Gate (now Newcastle upon Tyne, England), where it is said Romans constructed a fort in this location which later became a cemetary.

The castle that gives me the creeps is the Moosham Castle in Unternberg, Austria.  It has a terrible and accursed past. It was in this castle where Austria’s bloodiest witch trials took place. Untold thousands of young women who were accused of being witches were tormented and killed in torture chambers in the dungeon. Moosham Castle is now better known as Witches Castle.  Here's an image of it.

Another creepy castle, the Frankenstein Castle Ruins in Darmstadt, Germany.  Talk about spooky. Even looks like it has a distorted face on it.

The castle dates back to 948 BC. In the 1600;s the last of original Frankenstein family died in a chariot accident, on his way to visit his true love, Anne Marie. He dies instantly, and was never to see his true love again. She waited, and waited for him to show, eventualy diying of a broken heart. Today she is still waiting in the castle for him to show up. Both the ghost of Knight Frankenstein and Anna Marie are still seen at the castle today, looking for each other in the darkness, and trying to reconnect.

After the original Frankenstein Family died out a man name Konrad Dipple von Frankenstein took up residence in the castle. He was an alchemist, and grave robber. He was experimenting with dead body parts, and blood of virgins, and animal parts to make his potions, and resurrect the dead. His biggest creation was a monster made of dead body parts that he brought to life in his laboratory in the castle. The town’s people were afraid, and began to belive that he was the blood brother to the devil. The eventually stormed the castle, trying to kill Von Frankenstein. While barricaded in the castle, he drank his own potion, committing suicide, and died in his laboratory. However, the monster of Frankenstein escaped into the woods and many believe is still out there looking for playmates, and blood of virgins to keep him alive. Konrad Dipple is still practicing his alchemy, and grave robbing at the castle today, if you visit you just might catch a glimpse of him in the tower hunched over his lap equipment.

Wouldn't it be fun to visit some of these castles?  I think it would be.  Ghosts don't kill, only the fear of them.
