The Most Haunted Place In Each Of The 50 States (Part 1/Alabama-Missouri)
Even though the title says "--in each 50 state" I will be dividing the states into two tips. On each tip there will be 25 states (In this case Alabama all the way to Missouri) and the second tip I do will be the rest. All of the states are in alphabetical order so if your state is not present here, don't worry, it will be on the next!
Other than that, I hope you guys will be as interested as I was when I read all about the paranormal destinations of each state!
1.) Sloss Furnaces, Alabama
Operating for just under 100 years, this iron factory had plenty of time to rack up the number of fatalities that occurred on its premises. It's reported that screams, odd noises, apparitions, and even the malevolent ghost of a former foreman haunt this place.
2.) UAA's Wendy Williamson Auditorium, Alaska
While it may look innocent, this auditorium has its fair share of unexplained events. Footsteps and voices are often heard, but it's the poltergeist activity that gets the attention whether it's brunettes getting shoved, or strage equipment being thrown
3.) Bird Cage Theatre, Arizona
With dozens of death at this theater die to one type of brawl or another, this famous theater has plenty of fodder for the paranormal. Eerie music, and shouts often echo through the building, and spirits of Cowboys and prostitutes are often seen-- and sometimes felt
4.) The Crescent Hotel, Arkansas

Rich in history, this hotel was also the original inspiration for Stephen King's, The Shining, which seems fitting since staff and guests often report hearing parties in the empty ballroom as well as someone playing the piano-- thought to be the former owner's wife
7.) Seaside Sanatorium, Connecticut
Built in 1934, this property has been home to several different medical facilities, including most notoriously a mental institution. The asylum had a high suicide rate, and abuse, which probably explains the voices and apparitions reported here
8.) Fort Delaware, Delaware
Military activity here dates back to the war of 1812, but Fort Delaware is mostly connected with the Civil War when it was used as a prison for Confederate soldiers. Many of these soliders still haunt the fort with footsteps, voices, and full-bodied apparitions sights
9.) Florida Theater, Florida
With one estimate placing the number of spirits here around 50, this is definitely Florida's most haunted locale. Of particular note is a video showing what is believed to be an apparition, something the SyFy channel attempted to debunk only to find supporting evidence
10.) Kennesaw House, Georgia
