Haunted Places: North America (6 Part Series) Part 2

If you didn’t catch yesterday’s starter of this series, let alone it being the first half of this, I advise you do a mini catch up.

This is the uncommon haunted places in North America. I’ll set this up like I did yesterday. Do you like this set up? Let me know!

I also have a https://www.facebook.com/plugins/post.php?href=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.facebook.com%2Fstoryofamillennial%2Fposts%2F253121645549186&width=500” target=”_blank” rel=”noopener”>Facebook poll here. If you go to either, I’d love if you follow/like my pages!

CANADA

Roam New Roads adds mostly new ones to their list of 6, from our list yesterday. I’m most interested in the Tranquille Sanatorium in BC. Take this quote:

In the early 1900s, the Tranquille Sanatorium is where people with tuberculosis were treated — and often where they shuffled off the mortal coil. About 1,600 patients reportedly died of the disease there. However, the historic site’s manager, Tim McLeod, says it’s not a place of “ghosts and goblins,” but rather a building whose real history makes it spooky. There are about two kilometres of underground tunnels on the site, which are mostly dark and eroded, but were opened to the public a few years ago.

Narcity lists 10 places in this post. The bed and breakfast sounds interesting to me. I also really want to visit the Anglican Cathedral of the Holy Trinity in Quebec.

What place out of these lists have you gone to, if you live/have been to Canada?

UNITED STATES

So, if you don’t already know from yesterday’s post, let alone how American I sound through my writing….I’m in the US, so this is the easiest part of this whole series for me-anything US based! And it gets me excited, since I don’t need a passport to travel, and I can use the same currency, and speak the same language (because as easy as language comes to me…cough cough writing is my love…I don’t learn/keep up my practice with other languages like I want to), anything US based makes me happy. Plus it is my country, and it is so large, it’s great to explore.

Anyway, let’s explore these abandoned places that the Insider lists! They list 35 places. I’ll share again some of my new wish list….which will take forever for me to get to, since I’m on that “Get a decent credit score/credit history for a house” grind and I’m only beginning on some of the savings goals I have set out.

I may visit half of these places, as a ghost, but oh whale (yes, punny….not a typo)

MEXICO

Personally, I’ve never been into visiting Mexico, I’ll be honest. I’m a white chick who likes it cooler. I love Mexican food though, I will say that though. Coming from a country that covers more land than Mexico, I have this dumb mentality of “Why does your country feel more haunted than mine?!?!” when it come to Mexico.

Anyway, this list of 10 Most Haunted Places from Slapped Ham is something….WHY DOES THIS LIST MAKE ME FEEL MORE CREEPED OUT ON MEXICO?!?!?! Sure Mexicans are fine people, and if I was more wanting to be in the warm area like Mexico, I’d go there. But I’m lame, and can’t do heat.

From another blog site, here’s 5 Ghost Towns in Mexico. These seem different from the other ones I’ve shared.

What are some places you have visited from my lists, either today or yesterday? Where do you want to go from my list? Where have you gone/want to go, outside of my lists? I want to know ALL OF THE THINGS of you guys.

Haunted Places: North America (6 Part Series)

I’m starting another series for this month. Yes, with 31 posts, there’s gonna be series, and plenty of them. I already started True Horror Tuesdays, “31 of…”, and the History of Halloween series this week. I have a few “usual” series popping up, like Foodie Friyay and coming up this Wednesday, Wine Wednesday.

This series is going to go over haunted places, both common and uncommon. I want to do 2 posts per region, the common, then the uncommon following it. How I broke it up: North America, Europe/Australia, then everywhere else. This might be much. I guess we’ll see.

To start off this series, I’m going to talk about common haunted places in Canada, the US, and Mexico. Tomorrow I’ll do the not so common haunted places. HALP ME NOW GAWD. I’m so uncool.

Let’s make it easy by breaking it up into:

CANADA

Coming from Haunted Rooms, there’s a few in BC, a few in Ontario, and others are scattered, totaling 17 in their list. My favorite from reading this, is the Old Spaghetti Factory location in Vancouver. I really didn’t know how spread out the franchise was. I remember going to the one in Riverside, California, growing up, with family. I have all good memories there.

Now, from the CBC, they list the top 5 in Canada. 3 out of 5 were listed on the Haunted Rooms list. Out of the 2 not listed on the previous list, I’d see myself visiting/more wanting to visit the Fort Garry Hotel in Manitoba.

I’ve shared this website before, but here’s a list of 15 haunted places in Canada. They have a lot of different places that the other 2 don’t have.

If you live in Canada, how do you feel about these lists? Where have you been? Were they actually haunted? I WANT TO KNOW ALL OF THE THINGS.

UNITED STATES OF MURICA

Since I’m an American, there is many things here. This section is easily biased and may be longer than the other two, so I’m sorry guys!

Good ol’ NatGeo….how could I not click on this link when I googled it! Let me tell you, why is New Orleans the first one? It kind of shocks me, but not really, if you get my feels. A former friend of mine commented to me about wanting to revisit the Penitentiary in Philly PA, which they list here. If/when I make it out that way, I so want to visit.

Boston and that area is a good place, off the top of my head, due to the Salem Witch Trials. I’ll do a poll, on Twitter, but should I do a post on the Salem Witch Trials sometime this month?

The Travel Channel is another amazing resource, at least for us Americans. For those international that view American content (obviously I’m American here), is the Travel Channel such a big thing, when researching places to visit here in the states?

Anyway, The Travel Channel mentions the Penitentiary in WV, another place close to me. Add this to my bucket list STAT haha.  Another I’m adding from this is the Weston State Hospital, also located in WV. There’s like so many others I want to personally add to my #wishlistwonder visits, just from this list alone, for the US. Doing this post (and kind of tomorrow’s too), makes me want to travel domestically so much…now to get enough money to afford it and not care *insert cry laughing emoji here*.

MEXICO

I’m not one to constantly source the same sources. I’m trying here, on this one, let alone some of my most recent posts’ sources. But I’ve noticed with my most recent posts, for Blogtober, it’s the same like 3-4 sites.

Well, this is not from the usual sources, at least the last handful from this post and since I started Blogtober (yea, I know…it’s been barely a week). The US was easy for me, since I knew a few spots. There’s more in all three countries, I know. I am exploring more tomorrow.

So for Mexico, here’s what I’ve found, from Amy’s Crypt: This site even includes a video, right at the top. That’s a plus for us lazy folk who like videos or just audio even. From city of ruins, to a reclusive house and a hotel, this post is up my alley for somewhat common places for Mexico.

How many have you been to? Where have you been even, in these countries? Where have you been to, that’s haunted in your country (if you don’t live in Canada, US, or Mexico)? I want to learn more and add it to the bucket list that I’ll probably do when I’m 80.
