I live in suburban Philadelphia. Philly is full of haunted houses and one old penitentiary that is well known to have ghosts. The town I live in is also ghost-filled. Three of the local schools have ghosts, no make that four...I forgot the Catholic school has one too. People estimate there's a ghost here at least 1 every three blocks! Personally I've never run into one, which I think I would have if there were that many. We also have a large population of 'alternative religions' which is why the Catholics insist we have so many ghosts! I think it's more the town is old enough and used to be on the Underground Railroad, so there was probably a lot of violence going on. Also since the town has been around since before the Revolutionary War the chances of there being a ghost is higher than in newer towns.

Right outside of Fort Worth is the Naval Ais Station Joint Readiness base. During World War II a B24 bomber crashed into a hill overlooking the base killing the pilot and his co-pilot. When the wind is blowing during the time of year the bomber crashed and the temperature is right a howling noise can be heard coming from the hillside that makes dogs cry and little kids run in the house. It's eerie because while the plane was recovered in pieces, no bodies were ever found.

There is an abandoned school/hospital about 20 minutes away from me in Spring City, Pa. It was a school/hospital for children with mental problems. a lot of bad stuff happened at the time the school was open. They ended up shutting it down because of the negativity and abuse that occured. A lot of children died in the facility and people say that the ghost of the children are there.

For us on Long Island the two major psychiatric centers that were closed in the 70's are still standing empty or partially destroyed and they are both said to be extremely haunted. Pilgrim state is one and the other is the kings park psychiatric center. I have been on the pilgrim state grounds and every hair on my body stood up!

The court house in my little town is haunted. Its over 100 years old. There is an old bathroom inside, and occasionally the toilet will flush all by its self, and i have witnessed this.
