Almost everyday, I get a request from someone to provide them with the sites that I believe are the most haunted places in America. Of course, there are a number of ways to answer this query... It can be answered with the idea of these being the most actively haunted places (in which case I can name a handful pf places you have undoubtedly never heard of)... or the list can be some legendary haunted spots (in which little or no activity has occurred for decades, but it remains a famous site). This is the dilemma that such a question creates!

Rather than try and break down these sites with long discussions over what constitutes paranormal activity and what makes a really good story, I have simply decided to list what I consider my favorite haunted sites.... and ones that I feel fit into the category of "America's Most Haunted Places".
