I love a list like this. I’ve written about, and blogged about, so many creepy places I was sure they’d all be familiar. And most were. But this list doesn’t rank them -there is one creepy place for each state in the union, listed alphabetically. Before you go read it, try to guess what they designated as the creepy place for your state. Jill Harness would guess California’s right off, and Lisa Marcus would know what Missouri’s is. I guessed correctly for a lot of states, but Kentucky’s was a surprise.
17. Mammoth Cave National Park in Mammoth Cave, Kentucky
This area contains the longest cave system in the world, which means there’s plenty of space for scary happenings. In addition to being mined for saltpeter, the caves were used to house tuberculosis patients in 1842 by a doctor who thought the cave vapors would cure them. So it’s very possible that the ghosts of dead sick people are wandering around, especially since people reported seeing objects move on their own and hearing voices.
I thought for sure it would be Waverly Hills Sanatorium. Oh well. You’re sure to find a creepy spot you might want to go visit, in the list at Buzzfeed.
