I’ve always been interested in history. My Dad was a history buff and I’m carrying on his tradition. A lot of people don’t like history which puzzles me. Don’t they want to know about their roots? What about the history of their town or the area in which they grew up? Well, no matter how you feel about history, it is important. Why? It’s important because it goes hand in hand with hauntings. Yes, hauntings!
Our history is peppered with violence, high emotions, and trauma. These emotions and actions leave marks, or imprints on places. Historic sites like prisons, asylums, factories, hospitals, and group homes all contain imprints of these strong emotions. Many of these places have spirits that have yet to move on. So, most of these historic sites have ghosts, some have many ghosts.
