Hey Geeks, it’s Andrea. Today is day 1 of our 2017 Horror Month. If you don’t know what that is, it is 31 Horror-Themed countdowns in just 31 days. This is our second year doing this. Year one we started with some Haunted Places and today we are going to continue the tradition. Alright Geeks, let’s go.

5. The Bruce Mansion, Brown City, Michigan, America

Let’s kick things off with a house that I have no interest in living in. It was built in 1876 by a man by the name of John Bruce. Not long after the house was completed, it started collecting horrible events. In 1881, a fire broke out and destroyed most of the city, but spared the Bruce Mansion. In the early 1900s it was sold to a woman named Cynthia Smith, who died shortly after. The house was then turned into a location to host funerals. In the 1920s, a man named John walker moved in with his wife. She left him 5 years later. He was found dead later that year. Although there was no cause of death listed on his death certificate, many believe he was found hanging. If you live near Brown City, you just might be able to visit. They do occasionally allow small groups of people into the house just for the purpose of recording EVPs and looking for evidence of spirits. Some visitors have claimed they have seen ghostly humans, heard voices, and even heard growling coming from the basement.

4. Cuban Club, Tampa, Florida, America

The Cuban Club was built in 1917 as a recreational spot for Cuban immigrants. It’s fitting that it is on this year’s Horror Month. Given that it was built 100 years ago this year. Anyway, many people believe that the place is so haunted because people loved it so much that they just decided to spend their eternity there. As with any location, not all stories are happy ones, though. There are 3 highly sited deaths on the premises. After arguing, one member shot another to death. An actor committed suicide on the theater’s stage. And probably most tragically, an 8 year old boy drowned in the pool. As well as seeing and hearing these 3, people have claimed to hear other ghostly apparitions. They even have their own lady in a white dress roaming the halls. She is more unique than most lady in white ghosts, though, because she wear red high heels. Some people claim to hear a mysterious woman crying and they also have a piano that will occasionally play itself. The Cuban Club actually offers a ghost tour now, so you can experience all of these hauntings for yourself, if you are feeling adventurous.

3. Lincoln Castle, Lincoln, England

By far the oldest place on this list, the Lincoln Castle was built in the 1068. There is so much that makes up this castle, you will feel like your head is spinning if I try to go into too many details. The castle does have prison areas and had over 900 years worth of prisoners. Sadly, many were hanged here and their bodies are buried in a few different areas of the premises. When people enter the castle, many people feel uneasy. While you’re taking one of their tours, you just might feel tingles down your spine or the air go cold momentarily. People have claimed to see several women walking around. Including a lady in black who walks up and down the stairs to the gallows. One woman is even carrying a baby. People have seen lights, shadow people, and had doors slam for seemingly no reason. Some have heard footsteps, keys jingling, and eerie moans, growls, and even screams.

2. Moundsville Penitentiary, Moundsville, West Virginia, America

One of the most violent prisons just makes sense to end up being one of the most haunted places. Moundsville’s Penitentiary is located in Moundsville West Virginia and was built in 1866. It housed inmates from 1876 until 1995. Guards reported seeing things that weren’t there in the 1930s. They were sure they were seeing prisoners walking around on the grounds in areas that prisoners weren’t allowed, but whenever they would set off the alarms the searches would never come up with anything. All inmates were inside and accounted for. Naturally, rumors began to spread about the haunted prison. Moundsville Penn is notorious for the “Sugar Shack.” You may have heard of this in many haunted places TV shows. The “Sugar Shack” is a room in the basement of the prison created as a place for the inmates to hang out in whenever there was bad weather and they couldn’t hang out in the prison yards during the day. When people visit there today, many people hear arguing, whispers, and other strange noises. There is also an odd chill in the air and cold spots come and go. Living conditions for the prisoners were not great. They were cramped and miserable, which naturally lead to many fights and riots throughout the prison. Prisoners were still executed by electric chair here and there were many that died by the hands of other prisoners. Although he is still alive, you may have heard of a notorious prisoner. Charles Manson had a stay here for a while.

1. Moon River Brewery, Savannah, Georgia, America

Savannah Georgia is known for being a very haunted city in America. You know that a place gives people the creeps if it has been referred to as the most haunted building in Savannah. The Moon River Brewery was built in 1821 as a hotel initially, but was used several times throughout the 1800s as a hospital whenever the city had outbreaks of things like Yellow Fever. These walls have seen a lot of deaths in their day, so it makes sense that it would have some memories. It doesn’t matter where in the building you go, there is probably a story of someone being visited there, but it does have some spots that are particularly active. Many investigators, ghost hunters, and curious people have recorded EVPs in the building. If you plan on recording audio there, you can pretty much expect to find a little something extra. Especially if you work up the nerve to ask to visit the basement. They’ll likely show you a special part of the basement. People visiting have claimed to feel being touched and sometimes even scratched. You might see a shadow person or hear mysterious knocks. Be careful, though. A couple locals have actually stated that they were followed home by a spirit and had activity at their own home after visiting the basement. This isn’t likely to happen to you, but don’t say I didn’t work you. Just don’t overstay your welcome in the basement.
