Way north of here is the legend of Harthegig. An angry Indian who was murdered in a hollow. It is said on a stormy night he can be heard screaming over the wind and thunder. As teens, we went there. Never saw or heard anything however. Probably because we were intoxicated. My oldest brother claims they saw him running through a stream one stormy night. Anyone ever see a full body ghost? Half of one?

Can't see what isn't there but we sure scared ourselves into thinking we saw all kinds of things. I am about as sure of the non-existence of ghosts as I am of anything but in younger days we were fond of grave yards at midnight and exploring abandoned old "haunted" houses. We were sure to get a fright of some type at either place and it was much fun during high school dating years.

There’s a few haunted houses around here. They were fun to sneak into as teens. There may be 1 or 2 left around. The feeling of going up to the house at night, with the story in mind, was overwhelming

A local historic site near where I grew up in Alabama was the Forks of Cypress, an old plantation at the junction of two creeks that had burned to the ground, leaving only the surrounding colonnade standing. The photo in the link does not look scary but you should see it by moonlight when the mists from the creeks are rising all through them.

Looks scary enough for me bill! My neice and her bf booked a stay (guided) at the waverly hills sanitarium in Kentucky. They toured at night for about 6-8 hrs. She claims it’s the real deal! I’m not sure I’d go near the place

I've never seen a ghost.....but i've felt them, and heard them. The hotel we stay at over night at the end of our train run is haunted. I didn't believe in that kind of crap...AT ALL....until it happened to me. Now I'm a believer.

I have stayed at the Gakona Lodge in Gakona, Alaska which is claimed to be haunted. Never saw the ghost. I am a skeptic of such things.

Pennhurst asylum , often called the shame of Pennsylvania, has a brutal history. It functioned under its own power plant, grew its own food, etc. I’ve never been, but they say if you visit the hospital once, you’ll never go back
