Cassadaga, Florida

The Devil's Chair Haunting at Cassadaga, Florida:

The Devil's Chair in Cassadaga, Florida is located in a cemetery that borders Cassadaga and Lake Helen. According to locals, if you put an unopened can of beer on the chair and leave it there, it will be empty in the morning. Some people claim that the beer can will be empty and unopened. Others claim that it will be opened and empty (which is obviously less impressive).

Some people in Cassadaga believe that the Devil will appear to anyone who is emboldened to sit in the Devil's Chair.

The Devil's Chair Information:

Urban folklore about “Devil's Chairs” are common throughout the United States. They primarily refer to a class of memorial/funerary sculptures (cement replicas of chairs) that were common in the United States during the 1800's. Nineteenth century graveyards often included these carved stone chairs for the comfort of visitors. Serving this function, these chairs became known as “Mourning Chairs”. Today, these types of benches and chairs are still put in cemeteries but are more mobile and thus rarely made out of stone.

Monubenches are still commercially available. In other words, you could still buy a Monubench | Devil's Chair for your own grave. Many of the “Devil's Chairs” throughout the United States were not meant to be anything but monuments. And interestingly, once their popularity began to fade, superstitions around the act of sitting in one developed. What happens when one sits in a so-called “Devil's Chair” varies from location to location, but generally, the one who sits is punished for being out of line, or rewarded for their courage. Usually, but not always, the chair's power to inflict harm is heightened at Halloween or New Years Eve or at midnight, or at some other specified time.

Barre, Vermont

The Empty Chair at the Hope Cemetery in Barre, Vermont:

Mount Hope Cemetery is located in the Granite Capital of the World in Barre, Vermont, which makes this cemetery unique enough to be considered a tourist destination. The cemetery first opened in 1895. Today it consists of 85 acres of well-maintained landscape. Although there is a great deal of artistry and creativity and therefore originality on display at the Mount Hope Cemetery in Barre, Vermont, things are strangely, still rather uniform-looking overall. That's because each and every monument, including the infamous Empty Chair, at Mount Hope Cemetery was made of Barre Gray granite.

The Empty Chair at the Hope Cemetery in Barre, Vermont is somewhat unique, although not entirely original, because it is NOT a “Mourning Chair”, per se, but rather an actual tombstone. It is also called an “Empty Chair” rather than a “Devil's Chair”, even though, technically, it IS a Devil's Chair. The stories told about this monument are fairly typical for other locations where there is also a Devil's Chair. This is why, as far as the folklore is concerned, the Empty Chair, which is actually a tombstone memorializing someone with the last name “Bettini”, is indeed one of the numerous “Devil's Chairs” located throughout the country.

Locals claim that various unfortunate events will happen if a person sits in The Empty Chair in Barre, Vermont. In particular, if a person sits in the chair at midnight or on Halloween, they will die within a year.

On October 13, 2001, a 17 year old boy fell 40 feet down an elevator shaft to his death. A 16 year old boy also fell down the same shaft and was injured. (According to one source, his life was spared because his fall was broken by his friend's body). As many as a dozen teens were in the building the night that the two young men were killed. They had been exploring the facility for “ghosts”.The main building where the incident occurred was thus taped off and round-the-clock security was hired to guard the place.

People seem to report frequently that the gardens at the San Haven TB Hospital were beautiful. Today, this place is abandoned and, as some people put it, “trashed”. There are tunnels that some folks have been brave enough to explore, but today, you must get permission first.

Originally, the Colorado State Normal School occupied only one building that was known as Cranford Hall. Sadly, an unhappy theater student set fire to the building. The building was repaired and classes were held there until 1965, when it was decided that the building was too unsafe. Instead, it was used for offices until 1971. Then, it was deemed too unsafe for that and finally, in 1972, it was demolished. The corner stone of the building was saved and sits now at the northeast corner of Cranford Park.

Ghosts and Hauntings at Wilson Hall at the University of Northern Colorado:

The ghost of “Edith” is said to haunt the 3rd floor of Wilson and Wiebking Hall at the University of Northern Colorado. This ghost supposedly turns televisions and lights on and off in the dorms on third floor. Some students have reported seeing shadow figures in their rooms

The story of Edith goes as such:

Edith was a shy Resident Assistant in the dormitory. Unfortunately, students played a lot of jokes on her. One April Fools' Day, for example, they removed the furniture from her room as a joke. Poor Edith was devastated.

Edith played marbles in the attic (no one knows why). One spring break, when all the students were gone, Edith got very very depressed and went into the attic, where she always played marbles and hung herself.

This story, by the way, has not been historically verified.

Olalla, Washington

Starvation Heights | Wilderness Heights Haunting:

Locals in Olalla, Washington called the location “Starvation Heights”. It was actually called Wilderness Heights and it was supposed to be regarded as a world-class sanitarium. The facility was run by Dr. Linda Burfield Hazzard in the early 1900's. Dr. Hazzard maintained patients at the sanitarium on a “starvation cure” which ultimately killed many of them after they were emaciated for months and unable to leave the facility. Many of them became emaciated and delerious and ultimately signed over their wealth to Dr. Hazzard.

The only thing left of the Wilderness Heights Sanitarium is the cement foundation where the incinerator was located and a few other building foundations. The current owners have built a new home on the property.

Starvation Heights is now a private residence and it is important that you do not trespass on this property. Get permission to visit the location to do an investigation or you will likely be arrested.

Washington State Paranormal Investigations and Research did an investigation of this site a few years ago. They were able to capture some EVP's at this location.

Eight people were brutally murdered at the Wolf Farm. Seven family members and a chore boy.

Apparently, the child survived for two days unattended until people realized what had happened.

There is a fair amount of controversy surrounding who the actual murderer was in this case. The family members were all shot to death and the person accused of murdering the family was likely not the actual murderer. The murdered family members are buried in a local cemetery. The tombstone says, “Die Ermordete Familie” or “The Murdered Family” in Russian.

Lake Wales, Florida

Spook Hill Information:

Spook Hill is a well-known gravity hill in Lake Wales, Florida. It is unique in that it is actually recognized by the town and well-marked so that non-locals can find it easily and give the phenomenon a try.

Spook Hill Haunting/Lore:

Lake Wales locals claim that many years ago, a big alligator kept raiding an indian village that was located where present-day Lake Wales now sits. The chief of this indian village killed the alligator in a battle. Where the battle took place, a small lake formed. The chief was buried on the north side of this lake. When pioneer mail riders who road their horses in this vicinity noted that their horses “labored” while riding down hill, they decided to name the hill “Spook Hill”. Eventually the area was paved with a road and soon the people of Lake Wales noted that their cars coasted up the hill. The legendary Alligator-Indian Chief battle however, was not forgotten and soon, locals began attributing the strangeness of the hill to perhaps the spirit of the alligator trying to get revenge. Or the Indian Chief trying to protect his land. It's a bit of a reach, but still fun for young and old.

G. A. R. Civil War Cemetery Information:

The G.A.R. Civil War Cemetery is located near the Lakeview Cemetery in Seattle, Washington. It was platted in 1896 by five Grand Army of the Republic posts to commemorate the heroes of the Civil War. It is located north of Capitol Hill in Seattle.

The G.A.R. Cemetery has 526 graves, mainly of Union and Confederate veterans and their wifes. Army and Navy veterans are buried here. There are 25 states represented in the cemetery.

After the Civil War, a number of veterans traveled west alone or with their families.

A number of legal and financial difficulties have beset the G.A.R. Cemetery, resulting in a number of problems with maintenance. Community leaders attempted to alleviate the problem by moving gravesites and making tombstones that were flush with the ground. However, the legal and financial problems prevailed. In the 1940's people played ball games across the gravesites. Shrubs and trees were knocked down or damaged.

Sadly, the financial and legal problems have not been resolved. A 1948 law made it possible to get headstones for the unmarked graves in the G.A.R. Cemetery, but maintenance remains an issue.

Alameda, California

Abandoned Insane Asylum | Alameda Abandoned Hospital:

This old abandoned building Alameda is located at the intersection of Mariner Square Drive and Marina Village Parkway.

According to some sources the “abandoned insane asylum” was actually a military hospital, or a storage facility for the United States Military. At any rate, most people who knew about the abandoned hospital/insane asylum in Alameda were unclear about the actual function of the building and speculated on its use based on the way it looked.

The building was originally built in 1941 as a hospital and dental unit for military presonnel. It also was a distribution point for medical supplies and equipment in the Bay Area. By the 1970's, it was no longer used as a hospital or dental clinic. It became known as the Navy FISC Administration Building and continued to function as a distribution point for supplies. By the mid-1990's, the Naval Air Sation Alameda, California was officially closed and the FISC Administration Building was abandoned.

It became a target for vandals, drug users, and teens looking for adventure.

Rumors of dead bodies in the building are false. No bodies were ever found in the building by police officers.

At some point during its abandonment and decay, it became famous as the “Haunted Insane Asylum”. Apparently, beliefs about this building and its “haunted” status roused a lot of anger in certain groups and hype in others.

Unfortunately, this 150,000 square foot building burned down on March 29 of 2009.

Ghosts and the Paranormal at the Abandoned Insane Asylum on Mariner Square Drive in Alameda, California:

Visitors to this location have reported that they could hear disembodied screams and voices upon walking in the door. Blinds on the windows (particularly on the second floor, fifth window from the right) would open and close on their own, without explanation in this abandoned building. Feelings of uneasiness have been reported at this location. People have reported capturing ghostly anomalies and orbs on film.
