          St. Augustine Lighthouse

          Not really NEAR me, but close enough. Had an episode of "GhostHunters" there and they "found" some stuff.

            This profession is not for people looking for positive reinforcement from the public. Very often it can be a thankless job and you can't desire accolades, because those are not usually forthcoming. Just do your job to the best of your ability and live with the decisions you've made.

                Lemp Mansion in the City of st. Louis.

                Before the Prohibition, the lemp Family owned one of the biggest breweries in St. Louis( It was even bigger than Budweiser) combine Prohibition with the Great Depression, and you have a whole family who offs themselves or dies tragicly. Today, they have murder mystery dinners, etc but it has been documented many times of wierd noises that can't be explained, dead family members walking the halls, etc

                    These are from back home in NJ..

                    Bud's Grave. A weird set up outside across from a house. Story is that a boy died and the parents set up this shrine like thing. It's down the street from my grndmother's old house.... it's supposedly haunted, but I never really spent any time near it.

                    .........................................

                    The old mental hospital, Grey Stone is supposed ot be haunted to. We went up there one night late to check it out when I was a teenager, but it was too creepy to stick around..... still has everything from when they closed it down. And it smells retched. I got down one hallway and a little into another when I turned around and high tailed it out of there!

                    ...........................................

                    And an old church in the middle of some woods..... we also attempted to check that out late one night. After a few minutes of "no, you go first.... uh uh, you go first".... no one got out of the car to go check it out. LOL

                    I know of a lot of the places on the weird NJ site.... This one isn't haunted, but it's right near where I used to live. A jail cell in the middle of the woods.... kinda odd!

                      This is relatively close for me. There are so many haunted places here.

                      http://www.azjerome.com/

                      This is one place where I saw a ghost when I was a kid. It was my grandfather. There is a cemetary there where a lot of my family was buried.

                      There are also lot of places in St. Augustine that are haunted beyond the lighthose that was already mentioned.

                        One of our custody facilities (Mira Loma Jail in Lancaster) is supposed to be haunted.....it was a training facility in WWII for USAAF aircrew.......the ghost that many people claim to have seen is in a WWII aviators getup......

                        One of the hangers out at Edwards AFB was also reported to be haunted.....the US Army had a flight test area on the base, and had a suicide in the hanger.....guy walked into the tail rotor of a UH-1.......

                        I never saw anything in there while doing my foot patrol, but it was CREEPY sometimes late at night, esp. with the wind blowing......

                            I found a site listing a whole bunch more local 'haunted sites'.....

                            Muelbach Hotel
                            Opening in 1816, the Muelbach has long been considered one of Kansas City's most prestigious hotels and noted landmark. A blonde haired ghost in her 30's named the 'Blue Lady' is said to inhabit the hotel. Wearing a blue dress with her hair pinned under a wide-brimmed hat, she has been seen wandering the halls and sitting in the lobby. The Blue Lady is said to be the ghost of an actress who once performed at the old Gayety Theater, and is thought to search the Muelbach for a long lost lover.

                            Hotel Savoy
                            The Savoy, built in 1888, is said to be the oldest continuously running hotel West of the Mississippi. As you can imagine, the history and mysteries surrounding passers through and hotel guests of years past yield to plenty of ghost stories. The Savoy went through a renovation process in the late 1980's and legend has it that the process extremely upset it's resident ghosts. Two resident ghosts are said to live in the Savoy. One, Betsy Ward died in a bathtub in the 1800's and is said to turn the water on and off and close the shower curtains in the room in which she died. The other, Fred Lightner, is said to haunt his former apartment. Hotel guests and staff are also said to have seen mysterious shadows, heard strange voices and have doors open and close on their own.

                            Folly Theater
                            The Folly Theater and adjacent Edward Hotel were the center of the theater world in Kansas City for decades. The Folly stage played host to vaudeville and burlesque acts like Gypsy Rose Lee, and was managed by the infamous Joe Donegan. Restored to it's original state--employees and visitors alike report strange happenings in and around the theater. Many have seen a mysterious male figure in a bowler hat, who is believed to be the ghost of Joe Donegan. Others have also seen a woman in a long, flowing gown rushing toward the stage.

                            Union Station
                            Kansas City's Union Station was completed in 1914 and was a bustling hub of activity with more than 200 passenger trains passing through daily in it's heyday. As train travel declined in the 1950's, Union Station was all but closed down by 1970. Union Station has been completely renovated today--and stories of unexplained phenomena surround the station. Employees have reported a women in a black dress walking down the stairs after hours, never to be found. Travelers with suitcases have also been spotted wandering the halls. Others tell of hearing a mysterious train whistle blow with no trains in sight.

                            St. Mary's Episcopal Church
                            St. Mary's Episcopal Church, said to be one of Kansas City's oldest congregations with it's history stemming back to the mid 1800's. Parishioners and clergy have repeatedly seen who they think is the ghost of Father Henry David Jardine, who lead the church from 1879 to 1886. It is said that Jardine haunts St. Mary's after his untimely death in 1886, was ruled a suicide. It is said he still haunts the church in an effort to clear his good name.

                            John Wornall House
                            The historic homestead is now a museum right in the heart of Brookside. The John Wornell House, which overlooks Loose Park, is said to be haunted by a man dressed in a civil war solider uniform who has been spotted smoking on the landing of the stairs. The staff also reports other odd accounts--like the smell of pipe tobacco in the office area, seeing a woman bent down in front of the fireplace in the kitchen, as well as unexplained voices and noises.

                            Alexander Majors Home
                            The Alexander Majors Home--a historic home located on State Line Road is said to be haunted by Louisa Johnston, a woman who once lived there. Louisa spent the majority of her life trying to restore the home, but died at age 89 in the caretaker's cottage. The Majors Home Historic Foundation denies claims that ghosts inhabit the home, even though accounts of ghost sightings have been frequently reported.

                              The local paranormal groups seem to think that every local popular place is haunted.

                              I had a girlfriend who grew up around the corner from the house where the 1912 Villisca (Iowa) axe murders took place.
