Every day can be a fresh opportunity for discovering ghosts and haunted places. You don’t need to wait for a special event, or find the perfect haunted location in some out-of-the-way place. You may pass by haunted sites every day, and not realize it.
That little park near your home, office, or school… why is it there, instead of somewhere else? Was there a specific reason it wasn’t used as a building site?
When you’re downtown, what about historical plaques and markers? People pass them daily, and don’t even realize they’re there. Many tell stories that could suggest a haunting.
In quiet, downtown Tilton, NH, a plain white apartment building was once a hotel, and welcomed famous guests like Edison, Ford, and Firestone. It had also been a rooming house for factory workers. Though I found no ghost stories there, I wondered what other, unassuming sites might have equally colorful histories and have ghosts.
Researching a midwest site, I discovered a noted Native American mound that had been reduced to a very small pile of dirt. The rest of it had been used to fill nearby gardens and roadways. Does it harbor residual energy, or even spirits that protect what’s left of it? I’m not sure, but it’s the kind of site you might walk or drive past daily, and not think about as a potential haunt.
In this report — and the accompanying mindmap — I share tips for including ghost hunting in your everyday routines.
