~Some of our Favorites as well as a few locations on our Bucket List~
Birdcage Museum: Well publicized location that is allegedly where spirits are said to still play cards, billiards and flirt with the tourists. While the venue is small the spirits are many.
Bijou Theatre: Off Gay Street in Knoxville TN this former Hotel , now a spectacular Theatre, has a rich Haunted history and fantastic captured evidence of paranormal activity. Allegations of spirits from previous staff and actors, to squatters and civil war soldiers haunt this wonderful venue. Not the easiest to book and not inexpensive, but highly recommended for those who can schedule an investigation with management.
Bobby Mackey’s: The Alleged Most Haunted Nightclub in America, is located just south of Cincinnati in Wilder Kentucky. This previous slaughter house and mob run distillery/gambling hall has a sordid past while guide/author Wanda Kay gives fantastic tours.
Copper Queen Hotel: Famous Southwestern Hotel that has a reputation of great hospitality towards Paranormal Guests and its Ghosts.
Eastern State Penitentiery: Located in downtown Philadelphia PA this wagon wheel style prison is notorious for harboring inmates that never left its walls. Built in 1829 it harbored prisoners for 142 years, but many claim that the prison that closed in 1971 continues to hold its most violent criminals.
Lemp Mansion: This historic St. Louis landmark is reputed to have haunted activity possibly connected to the former owners who had a tragic number of family suicides on the premises.
Lizzie Borden House: Just 50 miles South of Boston in Fall River Mass is the site of one of the most heinous double murders in New England. Now a B& B the house has been waiting for its next visitors since the horrific axe murders in 1892.

The Ohio State Reformatory: Opened in 1896 the 6 tier East cell block is the largest known structure of its kind. After the Reformatory closed its doors in 1990 it continued to draw attention with alleged haunted activity and its film use as the back drop for Stephen King’s classic tale of hope in the Shawshank Redemption (1994).
Old South Pittsburgh Hospital: Run now by Stacey and her crew this location in TN is smaller than a Waverly or TALA, but is packed full of activity! Highly recommended for the reasonable price, great staff and incredible para-activity.
