I guess in the real world, just about anywhere would be considered haunted since someone has died just about every few feet on earth over time, right? I mean, before your big office building was there or your home, the land was run by cowboys or indians and even before that, who knows! With more people buried in the earth, than currently walking on it, the world is actually full of death.
If you start to investigate haunted locations it seems to be more of a traumatic site or cruel history that seems to bring out the best in a hot spot. A haunted mental hospital is perfect. Years upon years of torture and murder and throw in a bit of sick and twisted patients and you have a stomping ground for ghosts. What about churches? The dead are always there at some point or another… how come they do not haunt their favorite worship?
Old houses have long since had tradition to be haunted from years and years of living and life that has run through it’s hardwood veins. But why are some places more haunted than others? Why are some places evil with bad spirits and not haunted by some nice old lady?
I have personally been to some of the most haunted places in New England and only a few have ever shown me that they should be considered haunted. Now, again, each place will react differently to different people. I am no psychic medium or anything, I am a normal everyday guy. I do seem to have a knack for feeling spirits if they may be present, but then again, in the locations I have gone, I think everyone else did too. So I guess I wont feel too special.
Dudleytown in a highly ranked haunted location in Connecticut. Although most stories here have faded away since the town has since rotted away into the woods, if you look hard enough, you may just be able to find it. Located in Cornwall, CT, the area was host to a small community of people dating back into the 1700’s. They were a small town polluted by a mercury infested water supply. Eventually it made them go crazy and kill each other by seeing hallucinations and things like that. Well, at least that is one rumor. Back then, they did not have ways of testing water supplies, so they freely drank and bathed in it. Now, nearly 200 years later, the place is a real ghost town. Nothing but concrete slabs buried in trees and leaves and nearly impossible to see.
